>After I tell you my specific fitness goals, what sort of workout plan are you going to make me? > How often will you refresh my workout program? > Will you let me contact some of your current clients as references? This initial meeting is usually free; otherwise, you will have to look for a different trainer who can address these questions before you need to commit to anything. There are plenty of trainers out there with an entire range of personalities and styles, so do interview at least two or three before deciding to hire someone. Inquire regarding package details too, like: > What sort of packages do you offer? Usually, the fewer sessions you use, the higher the price will be. Also inquire about payment options – full payment upfront, installments, per session, and so on? > Can I get individual sessions? > How do you handle refunds? This is specifically important if you are hiring somebody who is associated with a gym. For instance, if your trainer no longer works there, do you get a refund for paid unused sessions, or will they make you continue with another trainer? If you are unhappy a trainer, do you get your cash back? > Do you train groups? This usually means a cheaper per-person rate. If you sign up with a few friends, all of you can save money. > If I get a package, should I use it within a specific period of time? Make sure it doesn’t expire before you get a chance to use all of the sessions. > What hours do you train clients? You obviously want a trainer whose schedule fits yours. > What fitness assessments are required and how often? Fitness assessments – for example, blood pressure screening, body fat testing, tests of strength, flexibility – all help your trainer in define your starting fitness level and devise a safe yet effective exercise program. How do you handle cancellations? Most trainers require 24-48 hours’ notice for cancelled sessions so you don’t have to pay for them.
