As exciting as it is to begin your journey to health, even the most ardent of exercisers can soon lose steam without the expert guidance of a professional personal trainer.
Caring and Compassionate
Ultimately, your fitness instructor’s job is to motivate you to push through your roadblocks and help you achieve your goals. Sometimes, this motivation requires some tough love – but that’s not all you want! After all, there will be points along your journey where you need caring and compassion from someone who understands the struggles you’re facing. When choosing a class, seek a fitness instructor who can both challenge and motivate you.
The trainer you choose likely has far more skill and knowledge than you when it comes to various aspects of personal fitness. To be of any use to you, however, your instructor needs to be effective at communicating this knowledge and skill in a way that you can process and apply. If your instructor lacks communication skills, both of you will likely become frustrated as you perceive a lack of shared wisdom and your trainer perceives a lack of learning.
In fitness, as in other areas of life, your teacher should be both knowledgeable and passionate about his topic of interest. An out-of-shape instructor won’t provide much motivation, while one who can’t even use his own equipment will hardly inspire you to do the same. While a full-on fanatic may be a bit intense, seek out a fitness instructor who can inspire you to reach your goals as living proof that he has reached his.
