What is it That Separates a Good Personal Trainer from a Bad One? Like when you shop for anything else, there are good trainers and there are bad personal trainers, but what is difference? A good personal trainer would tell you that you should shop around and find right trainer for you. A lot of corporate gym trainers have sales quotas, do you really think they’re primary interest is your health? Most of them have minimal training and are more of a sales person than a trainer.
If you are looking to become a personal trainer, what is it you should do first? Try to take course on exercise, fitness and health. If you also stay involved personally in body building industry, you’re also staying on top of competition. Commitment is key; you have to be committed, as your clients certainly will not be. They will want to quit and give excuses. You can’t let them. Above all, a personal trainer really cares about client. You can’t simply treat them like another paycheck. A customer has personal goals and needs and is asking you to help them along a path they can’t walk on their own. What a personal trainer is, is not a salesman or a drill sergeant, a personal trainer is a coach, a mentor and a partner on a road to a goal.
