If you’re looking to hire a Freelance Personal Trainer in Canary Wharf, this quick article will break down some of the most important things to ask and to look for, to make sure you end up with the best person to meet your goals.
Freelance Personal Trainer Qualifications
Unfortunately the personal training industry has no, one standard qualification. This means it has quite a low barrier of entry for prospective trainers. In my opinion, the world doesn’t need more trainers. It needs more high quality trainers. One of my mentors said this about gaining your basic personal training qualification. “You now have a license to begin your learning”. And I agree. When looking for a trainer, make sure they are well travelled in qualifications. If they have just the basic course, they likely have not invested time and effort into becoming the best coach they can possibly be.
Today, information is readily available. Type “how to lose weight” into google and see how many results appear before you. We don’t need more information.
We need the ability to extract the RIGHT information. This is called wisdom. And wisdom only comes with experience.
Ask your trainer how many years and how many clients they have trained. More often than not, the trainer who has been in the game longest, will be the ones you want to consider. Not to say new trainers won’t be good. But experience cannot be purchased. Only earned.
Training is a results orientated business. Unless you’re buying somewhere to spend your time?
Ask your prospective trainer for images and testimonials of the people they have trainer. Please be aware that before and after photos are highly manipulated, so ask for Google reviews or Facebook reviews to make sure they are indeed truthful.
If on their social media, or website they have zero reviews and just one testimonial, it may be time to look elsewhere.
Pay cheap, pay twice is the most applicable thing I have ever heard when purchasing a trainer. In any industry, the best people without exception, always charge the most money. If you’re paying for a cheap trainer ask yourself what it is you’re really getting. Most trainers only offer training without the additional areas such as hormonal profiling, nutritional guidance or lifestyle modifications. Make sure you know what you are purchasing. Ask for the details of what you’re expecting to receive.
