Are you looking for a greenwood village personal trainer and you really don’t know where to start?
First of all, that is OK!
Have you ever decided on a moments notice that you need to get a haircut? I did just that last week. You get frustrated that your hair is too long or just driving you crazy, so you drive up to your nearest strip mall an find the closest person with a pulse and pair of scissors and trust they know what they are doing.
Then 20 minutes later you are walking away from Edward Scissorhands wondering what the hell you were thinking!
Well, I am here to say that if you use that same logic when searching for a personal trainer, you will end up in a similar situation.
Only instead of being pissed off looking at your dew, you will either be hugging a toilet getting the second act of your non-fat Moca, or you will be on the couch for the next week because you can’t walk.
The fact of the matter is that Personal Training is growing and finding the right Greenwood Village Personal Trainer may not be a walk in the park.
After all you can walk into any one of the local globo gyms and find about 20 trainers eager to put you though their gauntlet of rigorous exercise.
But what you really want is someone who:
- Understands where you are and where you want to go
- That your needs are not the same as the next person’s
- Push’s you without killing you
And finding that right person just might be as hard as dating. After all, exercising with a coach is a close relationship and you don’t want to go to someone you hate.
Here are 3 Tips to Finding the right Personal Trainer
1 Get a referral from a friend
If you want to find someone that is in the business for their clients, then that trainer will be in the business for the right reasons. And that person is not always at the globo gym.
Usually they work out of local boutique gyms, small studios, or Personal Training Niche facilities.
If you don’t know anyone who can refer you to a great trainer, search for Greenwood Village Personal Trainer or your area plus Personal Trainer. You can also look on Yelp if you want to read some honest reviews.
2 Make sure you click!
When it comes to getting certified, some trainers have a ton of certifications and education and some have a ton of experience. However, if they are in the fitness business it is because they love it and have been doing it for a long time(most likely).
Aside from education, the biggest thing to look for is passion for helping you and that your personalities click.
3 Don’t Price Shop
Making sure training fits into your budget and price shopping are two different things. An independent trainer should be fairly priced in the market. However, if you find that trainer is dirt cheap and only takes cash, there should be some red flags popping up in your mind.
If you find some one who fits in your budget and clicks with you, stop procrastinating and get started right away! You life will change for the better, I promise.
So, next time you are considering a big decision like getting a haircut or finding a Greenwood Village Personal Trainer, don’t forget what I said!
After all you don’t want to be sitting outside your kids baseball game thinking how much it will hurt if you have to get up and congratulate him or her on that long awaited first home run.
