3 Things to Look For in a Personal Trainer

3 Things to Look For in a Personal Trainer

When it comes to getting the most out of your work, it all starts with the right tools. And the most important tool of all is your trainer. They’ll help motivate you, find a workout that will help you achieve your goals and set you on the right course for success.

Let’s be real. You don’t settle for a low return on investment when you invest your money, so why would you settle for less when it comes to your fitness regimen? Our bodies are the most important commodity that we have and changes to our bodies impact our quality of life. It’s important to keep this in mind, and treat the interview process like you would when deciding what investment to make. Who will you trust with your your health and wellness?

Making sure you pick the right trainer starts with the interviewing process, so in this blog we’ll show you what to look for when you first sit down to meet and interview a potential trainer. Feel free to test this out on our trainers at Absolute Fitness. This is an important first step in achieving your fitness goals!





Right off the bat – you must be confident that your potential trainer understands the value of fitness and health. It’s important that they understand that achieving your fitness goals isn’t about a quick fix. It’s about a lifestyle change. Don’t settle for a trainer who promotes quick fixes like a diet pill. Achieving lasting results takes long-term commitment!



Interrogate your trainers in the interview. Give us a hard time – we can take it! It’s our responsibility as trainers to educate, train and motivate our clients. Education is a fundamental part of the training process, and requires in-depth knowledge of how the body works (and how your body works specifically). This is the market value of your trainer: the knowledge that they bring to the table to ensure you’re getting the most out of your workout. If your trainer isn’t showing you that kind of commitment to excellence, then you should show them the door.


What has given us a lot of credibility at Absolute Fitness is when we’re able to get our clients to the point where they’re not as dependent on us for their motivation. We know that when a client is ready to make a change like going from 4 sessions a week to 2, it’s a sign of their accomplishment. They’ve achieved the return they were looking for, and are ready and motivated to seek out their goals without as much guidance.

As fitness consultants, we love seeing our clients understand what works for them – especially when they can put that understanding into action! We strive to make sure everyone gets a consistent return with Absolute Fitness, because we truly understand the investment it takes to love and nurture your body.

So are you raising your dividends when it comes to your health investment? Ultimately, if you’re having fun raising your BMR (link to Alan video about BMR) and lowering your BMI, you’re succeeding. Just make sure you take time to reflect and enjoy the process – and find a trainer who can help you get there! It’s why you brought in a professional in the first place.
