finding a trainer is both easy and difficult but here is a good start. If you look at the tab at the top of the page, you see ‘Find a Trainer’ which allows you to search by location.
You will probably see quite a list, and choosing a trainer can be difficult. You need somebody who is qualified, having up to date certifications, CPR and liability insurance. But it is also important that you ‘click’ with the trainer.
I suggest that you contact several of them and see how you feel in your conversation. the trainer should ask about you, your goals, your exercise history and your medical history. A program for you should be determined by your answer to those questions. You should not have to fit a program that the trainer has and tries to ‘sell’ you.
I wish you good luck in finding your amazing trainer and reaching your goals.
A couple more things to add to Karin’s comments are to check for any testimonials, yelp and/or IDEA reviews, their educational background and professional history. Also in addition to a trainer you might want to look for a dietitian as well (especially one that can establish a good communication with the trainer). It takes more than just exercising to reach fitness goals and improve a lifestyle. I hope this helps.
Hello Dana D’Aguino-Connolly,
I hear your plea; thank you for contacting us; you are in the best place to find a trainer. I suggest a health coach/personal trainer to help you reach your goals and help your daughter.
Careful with YELP; my clients made comments on YELP which yelp does not recommend; because, the clients are not regular yelp users. Who knows what else yelp censors.
IDEA has a place to enter your location for a trainer near you. You should have no problem finding someone to help you both.
The hardest part is getting started; do not fear, we are here to help you succeed.
Best of health,
Natalie aka NAPS 2 B Fit.
