Regardless of your existing fitness level, hiring a good personal trainer can accelerate your progress. If you are a beginner, a personal trainer can demonstrate how to use exercise equipment correctly, customize a workout program suited to your needs, diagnose and correct faulty movement patterns, monitor your progress, help you set realistic goals, identify unhealthy food and lifestyle choices, and provide encouragement and motivation.
For experienced exercisers, a personal trainer can help you overcome plateaus, introduce new and exciting training styles, improve your technique, and prevent stagnation. And if you are already an athlete, a personal trainer can help you get to that next level in your conditioning program and integrate exercises that will help you perform better in your specific sport.
Thinking about hiring a personal trainer? It is advisable to seek out a personal trainer with a graduate degree in exercise physiology, kinesiology, physical therapy, nutrition, and/or medicine. Personal trainers come from a variety of educational backgrounds, from a simple high school diploma to a medical degree. While there is no central licensing agency providing oversight for personal trainers, most trainers have completed one or more programs. However, not all these programs are accredited. Examples of accredited personal training certification programs include ACE, NASM, ACSM, and NCCPT.

It is also important to make sure your personal trainer is CPR certified in the event of an emergency.”
