Is Your Personal Trainer a Great "Fit" For You
The qualities of an effective personal trainer according to the American Council on exercise are:
Dedication to the exercise training program, demonstrated by putting continual effort into making training sessions fun, rewarding, safe and educational. Continuing education to keep up on the latest developments regarding exercise training, and finding out answers to questions that the client may have on exercise- related topics indicate dedication.
Professionalism in dress, behavior and demeanor. This means treating clients with respect and letting them know (through actions as well as words) that you take the trainer-client relationship seriously. It also means respecting the client’s privacy and the confidentiality of what is shared as part of the relationship.
Punctuality and dependability in scheduling sessions and communicating with the client. This includes being regularly prepared for training sessions, starting and ending on time, and arranging substitutes if you cannot attend a planned session.
Willingness to plan ahead for things that may interfere with a training session and preparing for the client, as much as possible, for any breaks that may occur. In addition, becoming aware of upcoming events or fitness challenges, and making a plan to train for one of them may be appealing to certain clients.
Sensitivity to each client’s past experiences, current preferences and future needs. This includes recognizing that each client is unique, customizing each exercise session to meet their preferences, and working with the client to maximize each exercise session. Providing a regular means for evaluating the client’s performance as well as your own, and being open to suggestions and alternatives that may enhance training sessions is also important.
Presenting oneself as a role model for exercise training and other areas of health.
Taking responsibility for problems that may arise in the course of helping clients reach their exercise goals. Consider issues of motivation, the training regimen itself, and client safety and well-being.
