Tips for Hiring the Right Personal Trainer for You

Published on January 10th, 2020


Now that 2020 is underway, we are all working hard to stay on track with our New Year fitness plans. If staying active is one of your 2020 goals, you’ve come to the right place! We offer a variety of programs, including personal training near Wayne, NJ and surrounding areas to help you meet your fitness goals. 


If you’ve never worked with a trainer, consider the following to help you find the perfect match for you. 


Credentials and Experience

Your trainer should have the experience and credentials necessary to guide you in the right direction. Proving their area of expertise is an absolute must and it can give you peace of mind that you are choosing someone who is knowledgeable in what they are doing. Plus, the more experience they have, the better. 



Choosing a personal trainer that appeals to your personality is extremely important as well. Understand the coaching style that motivates you and choose a trainer who is on the same wavelength. If you crumble under too much pressure or you’re looking for someone who knows how to push you, make sure to consider that when choosing your trainer. 


Consider Their Specialty

Some trainers are more suited for building strength while others may be more focused on endurance or cardio. Make sure to figure out your fitness goals beforehand and find a trainer who has experience in that area.


At the end of the day, the most important aspect of picking your personal trainer is trusting your gut. We have a team of trainers who are ready to help you crush your 2020 goals! Contact us today to get started.


If you’re recovering from an injury or would like to get started with some low impact group classes, beginning February, we will be offering classes with the Advanced Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy clinicians! For more info, please click here.
