Ten Questions To Ask Your Personal Trainer (Or How To Know When You Are Being Ripped Off)

Ten Questions To Ask Your Personal Trainer (Or How To Know When You Are Being Ripped Off)

I am a highly motivated person… sometimes…

But I can’t for the life of me stick to a new program or even write it down and track my results! I just can’t be bothered!

Would it help me stay focused and motivated? Yes.

Would it show whether my program was effective? HELL yes.

So why don’t I do it? Like I said, I can’t be bothered… and neither can you… am I right?

That is why we have personal trainers. A PT makes your workout an appointment rather than a random occurrence based on your mood. A PT tracks your data, so you don’t have to! A PT does your research for you, so you know your getting the most time and energy efficient workouts to get you to your goals. So without further adieu, let me introduce you to my top 10 questions to ask your new PT:

 

  1. What metrics do you track?

  2. What is your favorite certification and why?

  3. What is the difference between strength and stability?

  4. What is your favorite sport and why?

  5. Are you going to be around for the long haul?

  6. Do you take any supplements and why?

  7. How can I improve my working conditions?

  8. Do you work for any supplement companies?

  9. What does “functional” mean?

  10. How confidential is our relationship?

 

I hope you give these questions some thought because good questions are very revealing. You also get to know your personal trainer, which is critical for making a great partnership
