Hiring a personal trainer can be a huge benefit for some people. Particularly if you find that you need extra motivation to get yourself to exercise. Yet, finding a good trainer can be tough. You have to ask youself how much motivation do you want and how do you want it?
A tough trainer probably won’t deal with your excuses. You will be pushed beyond what you think you can do and you may not like it at the time, but you get results. This type of trainer usually doesn’t mess around and expects you to put in 100% effort every session.
Highly Motivated Trainers
A highly motivated trainer is good at keeping you going through a positive attitude. They may remind you how well you are doing, the type of progress you’re making, and make you feel really happy about your efforts.
Personally, if I were to have a personal trainer, I’d want someone who would be tough on me. It’s too easy to slack with someone who is too nice. Below is a good example of a tough trainer. He may not be your style but his methods seem to work for a lot of overweight individuals (primarily women.)
