hire a personal trainer in Liverpool

Are you looking to hire a personal trainer in Liverpool


If you are, we have created a quick post to help you choose the best personal trainer for you and your goals


You will discover the question to ask


The qualifications to look out for


And the proof you need that this is the right personal trainer for you


Hire An Instructor or A Coach


Unfortunately in the personal training industry there are many 'instructors' who claim to be personal trainers


And it is very simple to tell the difference


A Fitness Instructor will wave you in to the gym and just give you random workouts with no tracking, no set periods of rest and most importantly.... no plan


If you currently have a personal trainer


Simply ask them.... Can I see a copy of the workouts and phases we have completed

If they can't provide you with this


Then you have been paying for a fitness instructor and personal training prices


At Your Consultation: If you are having a personal training consultation then simply ask the personal trainer to show you clients current programs (hiding the names) and they will be able to do this no problem


If they can't... then they are a fitness instructor and not a personal trainer


Is The Food Plan Specific To You


This is huge


There is a trend within the personal training industry to set clients Calorie or Macro (carbohydrates, protein and fats) targets when they join a plan


This is wrong


The role of a personal trainer is to coach you as an individual


Which means that the food plan and coaching they give you has to be specific to you and your lifestyle


A personal trainer who coaches their clients through their nutritional plans will be able to establish small habits with you overtime so that the program you follow is sustainable


A lot of people associate exercise and with nutrition - meaning if they are not training then they do not follow their food plan


If calorie counting or any other diet you are given by your trainer does not fit in with your lifestyle or long term commitments then it is not for you


At Your Consultation: Ask how the food plans work. Their reply should simply be... We build the plan around you - if it is anything different... take your money and run away


Their Experience as a Personal Trainer


Would you choose a personal trainer with 20 years experience or a newly qualified personal trainer


The most important part of this when choosing a personal trainer is to make sure they have the experience in the goal you are wanting to achieve


See how that reads?


If you have a personal trainer who is newly qualified but in the last 12 months has completely transformed their life and lifestyle to lose X amount of weight


They may have the coaching skills to be able to coach you through a similar plan


But remember... it has to be individual to you


If you do choose a personal trainer with years of client experience then they should be able to show you;


Workouts and Progressions

  1. Food Coaching Plans

  2. Before and After Photos

  3. These are crucial

Why would you hire a personal trainer who can't provide proof of their work?


Personal Training Qualifications


Gaining your qualifications over the years has change dramatically in the personal training industry


Course have no been condensed to just a few weeks (some as little as 4 weeks)


A lot of the personal training courses are now online courses too


But when choosing a personal trainer


You need to remember this


Their initial personal training qualifications (Level 2 and 3) are just the start


The personal trainer should have a roadmap of the qualifications they are going to gain (if they are new) and be able to demonstrate their career progression


If they are an established personal trainer then they should have a back catalogue of continued learning and qualifications to be able to show you they are the expert in their field and more than capable of coaching you to your health and fitness goals


At The Consultation: Please do not be scared to ask to see qualifications. When you go to a job interview you have to show and prove your experience


Well in a personal training consultation you are hiring their time as 'the expert' and so it should follow the same format as a job interview
