7 Questions You Should Ask Any Nashville, Tn Personal Trainer Before Becoming Their Client

When looking for a personal trainer, you obviously want the best care possible. It's critical that you ask these 7 questions of any Nashville person trainer before signing on the dotted line.

  1. Are you certified?Unlike other professions like lawyers who have to pass the BAR Exam or doctors who have to obtain two degrees and a clinical residency, personal trainers aren't required to be certified. However, a personal trainer certified through a reputable and accredited institution demonstrates that they're serious about their profession and at least have a solid foundation for their expertise.

  2. What results have you gotten thus far?The best trainers always and should have testimonials of past clients whom they have already helped get great results. This shows that their methodology has already worked for other people.

  3. What should I eat before I workout?
    If you're just getting into exercising, getting started will be a challenged. A trainer should let you know prior to your session what you should be consuming to help prevent nausea and dizziness that may occur. Also, the proper fuel in your body will ensure that you give your best during your training sessions.

  4. How do my workouts correlate with my nutrition?If you're on a diet, too much high intensity training may hinder your results and interfere with the purpose of your diet. Also, there are times where you need to bump up your training if you're eating more.

  5. What is your strategy for preventing and dealing with injuries?
    Making sure workouts are safe should be the trainer's number one goal. But there may be a situation in which you injure yourself outside of training. A good trainer should be able to help you train around your injury, if possible.

  6. What is your coaching style?
    Some take on the drill sergeant style. Others may be easy going and more mellow. You should make sure that you are compatible personality wise.

  7. How do you track progress?
    Does the trainer take measurements like body fat, weight, inches, etc.? If so, how often? Does the trainer do fitness test to see how you're fitness level has improved? If you're not assessing, you're guessing.

Having an expert run the show and guide you to your goals in quickest and most safe fashion is good for you. But with more than 200,000 personal trainers in the U.S., and a ton of gyms around, it can get hard trying to find the one best for you.
