There are two reasons why I say this. First, it’s not cheap. And second, working with a personal trainer requires commitment.
I would share with you my two most important gauges in hiring a personal trainer --
1. Are you finding that you really need help and motivation toward committing to a personal fitness program?
2. Do you need more professional advice in a particular area of fitness for personal improvement?
Most of us know how we can basically start some sort of a four-to-five day fitness routine by taking easy steps toward walking, running or some other aerobic activity. However, if you need motivation, you’ll quickly find that investment in a personal trainer will drive your fanny to wherever you end up going to seek that help in accomplishing these activities. If you really have difficulty making appointments for yourself to commit to fitness, you’ll find that setting appointments with a personal trainer will help you better compartmenalize that time within your routine.
Good for you if you’re already on your way toward running a race or considering alternatives for new and expanded forms of activity. This is where a fitness trainer or coach can help you attain your expanded fitness goals.
