4 Important Questions You Should Ask a Personal Trainer

If you want to get a specialized program to achieve your fitness goals, it’s perhaps best to approach a professional fitness trainer to help you out. However, it’s crucial to find a fitness trainer that you’re comfortable with and who can help you meet your specific needs. And to do so, you have to screen your options by asking the right questions.

1. Do You Have a Background in Nutrition as Well?

A well-rounded fitness trainer would be able to not only help you achieve your fitness goals but also help you maintain a healthier lifestyle. If you’re looking to lose weight or get in shape, a fitness trainer will help you get there and teach you what to do once you’ve achieved your goal. But it’s important to be aware that a fitness trainer isn’t a nutritionist. Without a nutritionist by your side, it might be difficult for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle because you wouldn’t know what to eat.

To ensure you get the best of both worlds, you should ask your fitness trainer if they have a background in nutrition. If they do, make sure that they can help you find a nutritionist that can help you build a diet plan around your fitness routine. Otherwise, consider someone trained in nutrition.

2. What Is Your Coaching Style?

A fitness trainer’s style can affect the results you get from working with them. For instance, a fitness trainer who is laid back and not as strict as others might be a better fit for someone who isn’t ready to make a drastic change in their lifestyle. On the other hand, a fitness trainer who is strict and strict about training schedules might be a better fit for someone who is committed to making a change.

When you meet your fitness trainer, ask them about your goals, and be specific about your lifestyle, schedule, and what you want to achieve. This will give them an idea about your needs and how they can help you achieve your goals. So you might want to ask them what their coaching style is, too.

3. How Can You Help Me Achieve My Fitness Goals?

You need a fitness trainer that you can trust to help you achieve your fitness goals and keep you motivated to do what you need to do. So ask your fitness trainer about how they plan to help you achieve your goals. If you’re looking to lose weight and get in shape, for instance, ask them how they will assist you in reaching your goals, from a general idea to specific plans.

4. How Will You Keep Me Motivated?

One of the most important things to consider when you choose a fitness trainer is how they will keep you motivated. Without enough motivation, it will be difficult for you to continue your fitness routine and achieve your goal. So ask your fitness trainer about how they will keep you motivated. If they have other clients, ask them if they have experienced situations where their clients have lost motivation. If so, how have they been able to keep their clients motivated, or what have they learned from those situations?

Final Thoughts

Finding a personal trainer can help you achieve your fitness goals. However, you have to be specific about who you choose and what you want to achieve. To do so, you should ask the right questions to find a personal trainer that can help you achieve your goals, teach you what to do when you achieve your goals, and help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Above all, you should ask questions to find a personal trainer that you can trust and who is committed to helping you achieve your goals.

Chad has been my personal trainer for over 10 years.  He is very dedicated and resourceful as a trainer.  I would highly recommend Chad.  He has kept my body healthy through all these years and in my 50s. Chad is also very accommodating to working with your schedule. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

I love working out with Chad! I have been working out with him for the past year and a half and have had the best results compared with other trainers. Chad’s dedication to his clients, humor, warmth and expertise are a winning combination. I look forward to our sessions and always leave feeling stronger, more flexible and energetic. I highly recommend Chad.

I have been working with Chad (the trainer) for almost three years now and have gone through an amazing transformation! He bonds greatly with his clients and is a very qualified trainer. He tailors workouts to individual clients and has helped me perform better as an equestrian and achieve my physique goals. If you are looking for a great one-on-one trainer, I would highly recommend.

When I started going to the fit factor I went in thinking I had a pretty good knowledge of weight lifting and exercise without having much to improve. I was so wrong! Chad was incredible and really took the time to explain and show proper technique as well as a variety of different exercises that I had never done before. I now have much more confidence in my form and have a really great and well rounded routine. Additionally, Chad catered to my personal goals and really listened to what I wanted to accomplish. I cannot recommend The fit factor and Chad enough!

Giuseppe Leonelli

I have been weight lifting for over five years but have never had dedicated instruction from a trainer. Chad was able to notice where my form was failing and correct it immediately. He also guided me towards effective exercises so that I could keep achieving my goals and moving up. After a couple of months of working with him I was able to see some great results. Chad knows his stuff!

Jonas Escobedo

Chad has been great with not only the types of specialized workouts each session but also with checking in after the sessions. He has a real passion for seeing people make big health changes; which makes it fun. Would highly recommend!

William Gotschewski

I went to Chad looking to get back in shape and lose weight, which had crept up from working long hours. Chad was super patient and non-judgmental. We started at a level where I would see results but not get so sore or so disappointed at what I could not do it. He focused on what I could do if I pushed myself hard and taught me that step/skill building was an integral part of the process. We also talked about nutrition and self-care. As other reviews have mentioned, he cares about his clients beyond the appointment time, and wants them to make positive change to their lives that will stick. I lost 30+ pounds and I am in the best shape of my life. I have been able to maintain this for 2 years. He taught me how to create a sustainable workout plan. Even during the pandemic I was able to maintain my weight and my fitness level thanks for his frequent check-ins and the solid fitness base we created through his work and fitness mentorship. I highly recommend him!

I started with Chad in August 2020, my first semester of college was cancelled and i needed something active to do. At that point I was a small underweight kid looking to gain muscle and gain weight. I went to Chad 3 times a week until late January 2021. Those 5 months were great, I really enjoyed going to chad and it was the highlight of my week and something I would look forward to going to 3 times every week. Throughout this time Chad has perfected my form on workouts and had a great and unique workout for me everytime. I went in weighing 125 pounds at 5’10 and now I weigh 150 pounds after the five months. Not only did Chad give workouts but he also gave me a diet for me to follow so I could maximize my time with him. He really personalizes workouts for each person. Currently i’m in the best shape of my life and am super confident in my body. GO TO FIT-FACTOR!!
