A personal trainer can be there at every step of your fitness journey, from helping you to identify your fitness and health goals to providing the right techniques to reach and exceed them. However, it can sometimes be a challenge to find the right person for the job. Here’s what to look for when finding your new personal trainer in the northern suburbs.

Ask for recommendations from family and friends.

If you have a friend or sibling who’s been making leaps and bounds in weight loss or muscle gain, then chances are that they’re doing something right! Ask them if they’ve been working with a personal trainer and whether they would recommend them for you. A personal referral can be one of the easiest and least intimidating ways to begin working with a personal trainer who you know will be approachable and knowledgeable.

Look for qualifications and the drive to upskill.

Fitness trainers in Australia should have their Certificate IV in Fitness in order to know to best help you. Some trainers will go on to complete their Diploma of Fitness. Look for trainers who have one of these credentials as well as first aid training. It’s also a good sign if your trainer is proactive about optimising their training and attending industry events, because you’ll know you’re working with the most up-to-date information and techniques.

Ask about their areas of expertise.

If you’re enquiring about personal trainers at your local gym, then be sure to ask about any specific areas of expertise that you feel you may benefit from. Some personal trainers will specialise in injury rehabilitation, nutrition or other areas that could pair well with your fitness and health goals. Others have special expertise in pre or post-natal exercise, fitness for older ages and those with special needs.

Consider the costs

Personalised, one-on-one training can make the average cost of a personal trainer in Australia worth every cent. It can often be quite cost-effective to work with a personal trainer at your local gym. Be sure to ask about costs and what you’ll be getting for the money. You can often effectively mix personal training sessions with solo sessions or group classes for an affordable workout routine throughout your week.
