Are you looking for a personal trainer in East London?
If weight loss is your goal, and you know that personal training will get you there quickest, this article will break down some important topics you must consider when looking for a personal fitness trainer.
Inside or outside?
Are you looking for a personal trainer in East London that works inside, or outside?
Some people love the great outdoors and in Spring and Summer it can be nice to do the occasional workout when the suns out.
Having said that, not many people want to work with a trainer in the cold mornings of January, so when you decide on a trainer, make sure you are aware of whether they are working inside or outside as their primary location.
Personal training only? Or nutrition included
Lots of people hire trainers to reshape or rework their body composition or for weight loss. They are looking to drop some weight and to increase muscle tone.
But training is often just one part of the equation when looking at body composition. It’s important you look at lifestyle and nutrition, something we incorporate into all of our programs.
I would argue that without looking at the nutritional aspect, you are likely to see no results from your workout efforts each week.
NOTE: Just lowering your calories or increasing your exercise each week isn’t what we mean. We’re talking about a personalised approach to nutrition for the best results.
Cardio or weights?
When searching for a personal trainer, it’s important to distinguish between the types of equipment they will use.
If you hate cycling, a trainer who uses spinning and cycling sprints in their program probably isn’t the right fit for you.
Alternatively. someone who focuses purely on bodyweight training if your goal is to drop 5lbs may not be the right approach to you.
I encourage you to reach out to the trainers you want to work with and see which methods they use.
Do They Have Proven Results?
Unfortunately, there is a wide disparity between personal trainers because there isn’t one single governing body that regulates all personal trainers. For you, this means you can spend the same money but get wildly different levels of trainers, which is not what you want.
Always ask to see some before and after pictures of clients they have trained, and if possible ask to see if any of those current clients are still training. The proof is always in the pudding but it’s an excellent sign if they have long term clients who regularly come back to train each week.
After all, someone is excellent at their craft will have clients who come back on a regular basis. A busy trainer is always a good one.
