When choosing a Personal Trainer, consider the following. Tip # 2
July 13, 2013
- A personal trainer who works with adults isn’t always the best option for a child.
- The trainer should have a degree and/or nationally recognized certification
- The trainer should have experience training children including a sense of humor and patience.
- The trainer should create training sessions around fun activities that aren’t typical gym routines and include input from the child.
- The trainer should offer a balanced routine of strength, cardio and core exercise.
- The trainer should help the child find activities he enjoys and will do on his own. Ask questions about the trainer’s philosophy about working with children and setting goals and make sure you agree with the approach.
