Personal Trainers Redmond, WA

Anyone that wants to succeed at becoming their fittest knows they have a better chance if they have a personal trainer. You’ll find some of the best personal trainers Redmond, WA has by knowing what to look for and interviewing each personal trainer before you start any program. First, you should feel comfortable with the trainer. You’ll be placing the outcome of your program in his hands and need to be able to ask questions and follow his instructions. If you have a problem asking the trainer a question, you need to move to the next person.

Look for a personal trainer that works with your level of fitness. Not all personal trainers work with beginners. Some focus on bodybuilders ready to enter competition. Others work only with beginners. You’ll find some that work with people of all levels of fitness. In most cases, you probably want to use one of these trainers. Even if you’re a beginner, eventually you’ll become an old pro at exercise and want to keep continuity with the same trainer.

Ask the trainer for credentials. Several accredited organizations certify personal trainers. Most of these exams require the trainer to understand exercise procedures, physiology, nutrition, weight management and functional anatomy, including other necessary information to ensure the trainer is qualified. The organizations include the National Academy of Sports Medicine NASM, The American Council on Exercise ACE and the National Strength and Conditioning Association NSCA. Your potential trainer should show he passed one of these exams and received a fitness certificate.

The personal trainer should be able to communicate easily with you. Even though the trainer will probably be physically showing you many moves, he or she should have enough of a command of the language to help you understand how to do a specific exercise correctly, even if you can’t see him. He also should be able to listen carefully to your concerns or needs and respond to them as well.

You may need a personal trainer to help you with your diet. Ask the trainer if he or she has nutrition training. Trainers with nutritional experience can help you lose weight, gain weight or gain muscle by adjusting your diet.

Look for a trainer who acts and looks professional. Trainers can come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but they all should have a clean cut professional appearance. The focus should always be on your needs, not on how great the trainer looks in skin tight or skimpy clothing.

Find a personal trainer that creates a plan specifically for your needs by first asking questions and then carefully noting the results of the answers and a physical assessment of your abilities.

Look for a trainer that offers a variety of different types of exercises. He or she may provide workouts on gym equipment, weights, kettlebells or even those that require very little if any equipment.
