WHY CHOOSE PERSONAL TRAINER?
You might be to busy running your own career, family and so on hence neglecting the most important part of our life..our health. Personal trainer will be able to evaluate your fitness level and physical condition before giving you an advice on your workout regime

You might have done workout yourself before but have reach plateus in your physical goals, getting a personal trainer to train you based on progression and introducing multiple workout routine will help you to improve
HOW TO CHOOSE PERSONAL TRAINER?
I will be lying if i say there are no poser out there pretend to be a good personal trainer, but consider some of the tips that will help you choose the right one for you
There are many certification that can be acquire through the net but not all have good credential, the American Counsil on Exercise(ACE) certification are one of the better one and most personal trainer worldwide have this certificate. There are others such as FISAF and so on but please do check if they are properly certified and most international fitness centre do make sure their personal trainer are properly certified
HONEST PERSONAL TRAINER
No doubt that some personal trainers seems to be pushy and when come to getting you to sign up for training sessions, do not worry, these trainers probably are not well equiped or train on how to run their personal training business, they meant to be helping out the clients to make a better decision BUT do make sure that these personal trainer are genuinely trying to help you
Not all trainers suit all clients, there are certain aspect that you have to make sure before deciding on that particular trainer: are you confortable with them? are you motivated by them? will both of you communicate effectively? is your time and his time work well?
