Tips on finding the right Personal Trainer for you

Your personal trainer should be able to craft an exercise programme tailored to your needs and objectives, so it's important to discuss what you want to achieve early on. If you aren't sure what this is don't worry, your fitness expert will be able to help you set realistic goals in an initial consultation.

Your personal trainer is responsible for implementing an exercise plan to help transform your strength, fitness, and form. They can also provide nutritional guidance and diet planning. They must have suitable experience to ensure any fitness plan isn't going to hinder your progress or cause an injury. You should always hire a personal trainer who is suitably qualified, as this demonstrates they have the required knowledge to train you. Qualifications of fitness trainers can include Level 2 and Level 3 diplomas covering fitness instruction, certificates in sports massages, and diplomas in nutrition and healthcare.

Whether you’re aiming to win a triathlon, exceed your expectations in the gym, lose weight, or exercise around a pre-existing health condition, you can find local or online personal trainers with Bark, who are certified and ready to help you achieve your fitness goals.

A local PT will cater to all different types of exercise programmes such as spinning, free weights, or high-intensity interval training (HIIT), helping you to unlock your true performance potential.

Is it worth hiring a Personal Trainer?

What do you love most about your job?

There’s far too many things to pick from! If I’ve got to narrow it down to just one, it’s very rewarding helping someone on a potentially life-changing journey. I get to see real change in my clients, whether that be in their overall health, weight, or attitude.

How did you get into personal training?

I was always athletic at school. I was a part of as many sports clubs as possible and I would never seem to slow down – being active is simply who I am. When I first joined a gym I quickly learnt that I could set new milestones and beat them again and again. Being able to see progression was fascinating and pushing myself to new limits was great. I became friends with the personal trainers at my gym and the job they were describing was simply perfect for me. I then booked onto my first training course and the rest was history!

What qualifications have you achieved?

I have a Master Personal Trainer Diploma, certifications in sports massage, and even ante and postnatal instructing. I’m certified to instruct cycling, weight lifting, and circuit training.

What variety of training options do you provide for clients?

I can work with clients from home, at a local gym, in public areas/parks, from my private workout studio, or even at their office. Modern life is busy and can be difficult to balance, so we can discuss the most suitable options for your routine and budget.

I had been attending Claire's pilates classes for just over a year when I fell pregnant. Having known Claire had prenatal and postnatal qualifications in fitness I was keen to continue with my pilates journey. Claire is incredibly knowledgeable and supportive, explaining how each move or exercise will help with pregnancy and even labour! As my pregnancy develops, Claire has adapted the exercises to ensure I get full benefit and that both baby and myself are safe. The use of different equipment makes each week fresh and interesting. I would absolutely recommend Claire to any expectant or new mum. I know I will be continuing with my pilates journey with Claire's help after the arrival of my baby.

When I first met Mitch & Emma they were both so friendly & welcoming. I had Mitch as one to one, for a few weeks to get me back into fitness again, after years of feeling unfit. Mitch’s passion for fitness shines through. He encourages you, makes one more confident in oneself. Mitch pushes you but not over doing it. He does everything with a smile & has a great sense of humour. Mitch also helps you with the right nutrition value of what one eats. The equipment is amazing, Mitch always has his eye on you, if you’re doing it slightly wrong he’s always there to help, he’s written me an easy to follow program. I’ve never felt better for a long time. Everyone at the gym are so friendly. Thank you Mitch

Really impressed by JCD Coaching, James was delivering training to a group of care home residents he’d not met before but his session was an absolute hit! Within a few minutes the room was fully engaged, residents were focused on their activities having a great time! James devised seated circuits which rotated round the room and were adapted to suit each resident’s individual ability. There was plenty of hand to eye co-ordination work , sustained focus and a whole lot of laughter! Residents were undertaking exercise repetitions that didn’t feel nor seem like exercise and they are keen for their next session. Very impressed with James’s approach and ability to make exercise fun and appealing.
