8/15/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Saturday

Hi!  Any kind of exercise is better than doing nothing (walk the dog, bike, spinning class...), but if you have an opportunity to work with an exercise trainer,  it pushes you past where you can go on your own through new ideas, a second set of eyes on proper form, and new product knowledge.

The key is finding someone who is qualified, motivating, affordable, and energetic.  It's great if you can get a recommendation from a friend.

If you are just beginning, consider the process to be a series of interviews.  How does a trainer look physically themselves?  Does it appear that they practice what they preach? Do they ask you questions about past injuries? (*super important so that they know what body parts, like back or knees, need to be protected).  Ask for their credentials.  Chemistry is really important.  If they seems to be pushing a hard sell for booking sessions, if they talk about other clients, whine about their jobs, or just chat instead of getting down to why your there...find someone else.  Would you stay with a bad hairdresser?  I bet not. 

Don't sign up with them till you have interviewed or do a practice training session with 2-3 different trainers.  Its usually quite an investment.  Get what's best!

Your safety and enthusiasm about improving your physique is too important!  Search!  Investigate!  Evaluate!  When the trainer/client relationship works...it's a rush!
