What to look for in a personal trainer

When it comes to picking a personal trainer, you need to do exactly that – be personal. PTs are trained to work with you to craft an exercise programme that will help you reach your goals. Once we know your objectives, a range of qualified and experienced personal trainers will be in touch to help you with your needs. Qualifications of fitness instructors can include Level 2 and Level 3 diplomas covering fitness instruction, certificates in sports massages, and diplomas in nutrition and healthcare.

There are also professional membership organisations, such as the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) or the National Register of Personal Trainers (NRPT), which are great ways to ensure competence and reputation. Whether you’re aiming to win a triathlon, exceed your expectations in a powerlifting competition, or exercise around a pre-existing health condition, there will be a professional trained and certified in your specialism. All of them determined for you to succeed.

Variety is the spice of life

No matter what your goals, there are a huge range of options available for you to hit them. So why stick to the same routine that doesn’t give you what you want? Fitness trainers can give that much need professional advice and create realistic, attainable goals for individuals. They can also include different types of exercise such as spinning, free weights, or high-intensity interval training (HIIT), helping you to unlock your potential.

There are several key reasons to include a personal trainer in your workouts, the top contenders being: speed of results, quality of results, and safety. If you’re working closely with a qualified professional you’re going to reap the rewards of your efforts. Improve every day with beneficial critiques, industry expertise on specific forms of exercise, and doing so with less risk of injury.

Personal training will provide you with much needed programmes and keep an eye on your form. You may want to improve your physique or are new to the gym.

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.
