There are many reasons to hire a personal trainer, especially if you’re new to the gym and not really sure how to use all those complex machines. But before you make a decision, there are several things you should consider.

Their Credentials

Make sure your trainer of choice has legit credentials. You want to be sure you’re hiring a professional. Personal trainers come from many different backgrounds and it’s usually a good idea to check their history beforehand.

Their Price

Prices may vary a lot so make sure you’re getting the most for your money. This doesn’t have to mean hiring the cheapest trainer you can find; it just means that you should inform yourself about the price range so you know what you can expect.

Other People’s Recommendations

Perhaps your friends or other gym members can recommend you someone and save you the trouble of researching and potentially making a wrong choice — use that.
