How to Select a Personal Trainer

If you are serious about getting into prime physical shape and boosting their overall health, a high-caliber personal trainer is an expert that you need to see the gains that you want.

One study published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine found that people who work with a personal trainer enjoy substantially better results in terms of fitness goals.

We’ll go over the most crucial points about personal trainers, what they do, and how to choose the best one to meet your goals. If you’re in the market for a personal trainer in Dallas working out of a world-class gym, Butchered Bodies is here for you.

Who Needs a Personal Trainer?

Everyone, at all stages of their development, can benefit from the expertise of a knowledgeable and dedicated trainer. Personal trainers are especially important for two groups: those who have never trained before and those who have “hit a wall.”

Knowing what to do and how to do it in the gym can be intimidating for newcomers who have never pushed a barbell or handled 45-pound iron plates. Like all things, people have to learn how to work out optimally.

“Hitting the wall” is a phrase that means a gym-goer’s progress has stalled. For people trying to increase lean muscle mass, that might be slowed growth. If you’re trying to lose weight, hitting the wall could mean no longer seeing the pounds drop on the scale.

Ji Hwang couldn’t fit into her wedding dress anymore and she knew she needed to get serious about revamping her physique. She made the right move to start training with the company that has built its reputation on getting serious results in the gym. “Butchered Bodies whipped me into shape in no time,” Ji said.

What to Look for in a Personal Trainer

Solid personal trainers fulfill the following roles:

  • Accountability. When you’ve got a one-on-one commitment with your gym partner, you can’t skip out to hit the bar for happy hour.

  • Desired Change. Any personal trainer worth his or her salt demonstrates results. After all, what are you working so hard for if you’re not seeing the fitness gains that you want?

  • Injury Prevention. Injuries in the gym can cause long-term setbacks and even keep you out of the game for extended time periods. Poor technique, muscle overuse, and improper stretching can all contribute to injuries. An experienced personal trainer teaches clients how to manage their injury risk.

  • Knowledge transfer. For personal trainers who have worked in the industry for years, the knowledge that they bring is immensely beneficial. They can combine the academic nutrition and fitness knowledge that they have with their experience “on the front line” to know what works and what doesn’t in terms of results.

Most of all, look for a personal trainer that is personally dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. What good is all the experience and knowledge of a personal trainer if they are not committed to helping your reach your full potential?
