It’s not easy to hire a personal trainer that can help you reach your goals and that you feel comfortable working with every week.
That’s why we put together this informational guide to teach you everything you need to know about finding the right personal trainer to reach your fitness goals.
What to Look For in a Personal Trainer
While searching for a personal trainer, keep an eye out for a few necessities to ensure you make the right choice.
The first thing you need to keep an eye out for when hiring a personal trainer is that they are certified. Trainers can have a few different types of certifications, so make sure their certification is recognized by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
At Peak Physique, our trainers all hold, at minimum, the National Personal Training Institute certification. Meet our team to learn more about the other certificates they have.
While certifications are essential, they’re not everything. Every single person has different goals when it comes to training, so it’s essential to find a trainer that works with people like you.
If you’re a woman over 40 looking to lose weight, you’ll require different training than a male at 20 looking to train in his sports off-season. Talk with your trainer to see how they will help you reach your fitness goals.
Friendly and Approachable
You should be able to talk openly about why you’re going to a personal trainer and what you expect from your workout sessions. For example, if something hurts or you don’t think you can do it, you need to feel comfortable talking with your trainer about it. Your trainer should listen to your concerns and make any necessary adaptations to feel comfortable exercising.
At Peak Physique, we pride ourselves on the relationships we create with our clients. We get to know every person that comes into our gym. Our priority is to make sure you feel confident and safe when you enter our gym.
Think About What You Want in a Trainer and Gym
Some people aren’t comfortable going to big-name gyms where anyone can walk in and start exercising. It’s intimidating, confusing, and discouraging to see people more advanced than you excel in the same uncomfortable environment. Plus, with the rise of people recording themselves in the gym, it can be embarrassing to go to a gym and see someone recording when you’re just trying to work out.
That’s why we find many people love coming to our private gym and working directly with a trainer their entire session. We’re focused on helping you, and the only other people in the gym are other people working with a trainer as well.
At a private gym like Peak Physique, we promise you’ll never feel judged, intimidated, or embarrassed by your fitness knowledge. Instead, it’s our job to train and support you as you navigate your training journey. We’re committed to adding you to our gym family!
Benefits of Personal Training
Working with a personal trainer has many benefits besides making it easier to reach your fitness goals.
Your safety is always our priority. By working with a personal trainer, we can guarantee that you won’t get injured by incorrectly performing an exercise.
As certified trainers, we know how to push you to reach your goals while keeping you safe the entire time.
Customized Workout Plan
Doing the same workout every time you go to the gym gets stale and boring. When you hire a personal trainer, we create an exercise plan specifically for you that will continuously challenge you.
You’ll never reach your workout plateau since each time you come in we’ll have something fresh and fun for you to do.
We Make Fitness Fun!
Getting to the gym doesn’t have to be a chore you endure. At Peak Physique, we love having fun with the people we train. Someone is always making a joke, and you can always count on Nick to have the best playlists going in the background.
As you continue to come to Peak Physique, you’ll start to meet other clients who share your fitness goals. We’ve seen clients go from strangers to friends in just a few months, and it’s something we’re proud to be part of in our community.
