How to Hire a Personal Trainer: Check Their Fees First
Fees for personal trainers range from $30 to $100 per hour, depending on the size of your city or town and the state or province you're in.
New York City personal trainers earn around $100 per hour; small town personal trainers or fitness instructors earn significantly less.
Some fitness instructors come to your home; others meet you at a local weight room or health club, or at their own private gyms.
Hiring a certified personal trainer through a health club, your local gym, or a community recreation center may be a more economical option.
Many community centers offer the services of a certified personal trainer for a reasonable cost.
How to Recognize a Good Personal Trainer
Before you hire a personal trainer, ask for an interview (which should always precede the first session, which is often free or discounted).
A certified personal trainer or private fitness instructor should:
* Evaluate your current fitness level & future goals (eg, weight loss, increased health).
* Help you establish a personal fitness plan.
* Encourage you to try new equipment, such as Bosu balls, while letting you enjoy your tried-and-true exercises.
* Listen to you, and take your concerns and feelings seriously. When you're hiring a personal trainer, make sure they act professional and courteous.
* Pay attention to how you're doing the exercises, and give you feedback and pointers.
* Help you modify your fitness plan as needed.
You may need your private fitness instructor to set you up with a fitness plan or weight loss goals, but the ultimate outcome is up to you.
Hiring a personal trainer can motivate you to lose weight, but you have to do the workouts and follow the fitness plan to see the results you want.
Even children are benefiting from certified personal trainers, who help them lose weight, learn new sports skills and improve fitness levels. The benefits of hiring your own personal trainer or private fitness instructor include increased motivation to exercise, a healthy fitness plan and more discipline. Personal trainers are like tutors for your fitness plans and weight loss goals.
