How to pick a trainer

More and more people are turning to personal trainers as guides through the journey of improving health. A personal trainer can also push you further and help you reach goals more effectively than just working on your own.

Not every trainer is the same. Before handing over your exercise routine be sure to check for credentials. Make sure the trainer is certified and a part of a nationally accredited personal trainer association.

Trainers aren't just for those looking to take their fitness to the next level. Many people with health challenges can benefit from a medical personal trainer. A person who specializes in medical needs can help patients overcome those challenges and work within a doctor's guidelines to improve overall health and quality of life.
