5 KEYS TO CHOOSING A QUALIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER
Scarsdale, NY -
Want to hire a personal trainer? If so, your odds aren't great of finding someone who is qualified. In the current issue of "Men's Workout," renowned trainer Brad Schoenfeld provides five essential guidelines to making a smart choice.
"Unfortunately there are no regulations for someone to become a trainer," Schoenfeld says. "Anyone can hang a shingle on their door and set up shop as a 'fitness professional.' Some of the people working in the field are totally unqualified to train themselves, let alone others. It's scary."
Schoenfeld believes the most important thing to consider is a trainer's credentials. "If you want to train someone properly, you need to have a good background in exercise science," Schoenfeld says. "At the very least, a trainer should be certified from an accredited organization. Ideally they should also have a degree in a related field. Too often, that's not the case."
