How do I know if A Trainer is Good?

Updated: May 18, 2020

A good trainer can make or break your progress. But how do you identify if a trainer is right for you?

I believe that a good trainer is a teacher and mentor. Your trainer should:

- Teach you how to use equipment safely and effectively.

- Teach you how to lift weights with proper form.

- Be knowledgeable about nutrition and create a holistic plan including training and nutrition to achieve your goals.

- Push you to try harder.

Your trainer should not:

- Make you do complex movements that are unnecessary and dangerous for your joints.

- Make you do exercises that require you to work out with someone else (so that you are unnecessarily dependent on the trainer and don't know how to work out without them).

- Ignore injuries, physical, medical or emotional issues.

Your trainer should be a source of motivation, but don't expect your trainer to carry you. You need to find your inner drive and the reasons why you want to achieve your goals. Yes, your trainer will undoubtedly serve as a therapist, to a degree. When you work out you'll have a catharsis, you'll have moments of doubt, you'll have to break through the barriers that are preventing you from progressing to the next level.
