Finding The Right Personal Trainer

Personal trainers can be a great help when you are trying to get in shape. They can tell you what exercises to do, how to do them and are a great motivational force. They can drive you to get in shape or to reach a new level of physical fitness. A good personal trainer is worth their weight in gold, but a bad one can aggravate and de-motivate you. So how do you find a good personal trainer? You can not just pick one and hope for the best. You have to do a little research to find the one who is right for you. This article will help you screen your personal trainers so you can find the one that's right for you.

The first thing you need to look at is the education level of the personal training specialist. Find out what personal
training schools that they attended, what certificates they hold and how much hands on training they have. There are quite a few different schools and certifying bodies in the personal training industry and one may not need to be better than the other. The important thing is that they have some education. If a personal trainer takes their career seriously, they will have obtained some official training and will be eager to talk about it.

The next thing that you should check for is references. Ask them for a few names of happy customers that would recommend them. If they are doing a good job, they will probably have dozens of satisfied customers who will send their praises. You should also see who they are training. If they are primarily training hardcore body builders and you just want to lose a few pounds, they may not be for you.

Another factor to consider is the price. Choose a personal trainer that charges fairly but who is not necessarily cheap. Always beware of the lowest bidder. If they charge much lower than everyone else, you have to wonder why they value their service so little. Seek the middle ground in price, not too high but not too low.

The last thing that you need to take into consideration is personality. Find someone who you like and can get along with. If you do not like your trainer, you will probably stop going so this is very important. Spend a little time getting to know them. Ask them some questions to see how they respond. Are they condescending or arrogant with their answers? If you can not get along or you find yourself annoyed by them in just a 5 minute interview, you will not be happy in the long run.

By just doing a little research, you greatly improve your odds of finding a good personal trainer who you like. Once you have done that, you will greatly improve your odds of reaching your physical fitness goals.

Power Racks – Essential Home Gym Equipment

A power rack is one of the most useful pieces of equipment for a home gym. If you have a good weight set and a good bench, the next thing you should consider is a good quality power rack. A power rack is a simple device that holds a barbell at any height you choose to start an exercise, and provides safety rails that catch the barbell at the end of the set. There is a link at the bottom of this article that will take you to some pictures of several different power racks.

The most important features of a power rack are safety and versatility. If you set it up properly, it enables you to perform many heavy exercises in relative safety. If you have ever bench pressed a heavy weight by yourself without a rack of some kind, you know what I mean! What do you do when you can’t get that barbell off your chest? You either scream for help or shift the weight to one side and let it drop to the floor which not only can damage your equipment and the floor, but opens you up to the possibility of serious injury to your back, neck and shoulders. A properly used power rack prevents this by providing an adjustable height safety catch that allows you to simply lower the weight onto it and you can safely slide out from under the barbell with no risk or effort whatsoever!

Power racks are fully adjustable so you can set it up for safe military presses, bench presses (flat, incline or decline), squats, calf raises, shrugs and any other movement where the barbell does not go to the floor at the end of the set. Many racks also have a chin up bar, adjustable dip bars, and an optional lat pull down attachment. I highly recommend the lat pulley attachment on the power rack versus a separate machine. I have used both and the rack is much more stable than most stand-alone lat machines, and the space savings is considerable.

I believe the power rack to be essential for someone who works out alone in a home gym. If you have a good set of weights and a good quality bench and are serious about your weight lifting or bodybuilding program, get a power rack next!

I personally own and use a Body Solid (Powerline) Power rack with a plate loading lat attachment, but Powertec and Yukon make quality racks as well. I am partial to Body Solid because I like all my equipment to look the same, and I have been please with every piece of Body Solid equipment I have purchased over the years.… Read More

Pilates Reformer – A Pilates Machine For All Levels of Fitness

I have to be honest – exercise was definitely not my most favorite and beloved activity! In fact, the only exercise that I enjoyed would be when I would flip channels on the television manually. Yes, getting up from the couch and going to the television just to change channels was truly the sum total of the “exercising” that I did on a daily basis.

Why did I avoid working out? I don’t like the feeling of joint pains the day after I would exercise. It always happens. During the exercise, I would feel good – natural endorphins would be high and I wouldn’t even feel the abused muscles … That is, not until the next day. But when I read about the Pilates method of fitness, I got interested in trying it. It seemed so graceful, and I heard that it is popular with dancers as it helps to give them good posture and strong muscles without adding bulk. So, I looked up the places that offer Pilates classes and signed up for a trial workout.

The first thought that entered my head when I saw the Pilates Reformer was “no way!” It looked a bit like something that would be used to torture people. It has pulleys and a foot bar and a metal frame. I was afraid to even come near it, much more use it! My instructor was there to guide me through the movements – though honestly, I did not feel graceful at all at first.

The next day, I was expecting to feel sore but I did not. Using the Pilates Reformer machine did not give any added stress to my joints. I was so pleased, and my body felt so limber and relaxed, that I went back to do more! As a result, Pilates Reformers have become my favorite type of Pilates exercise equipment. What I love about it is the results that I’m seeing and at the same time, I feel relaxed and rejuvenated after the exercise. It’s like exercising while going to the spa.

I know I said that I don’t like to exercise, but doing the Pilates Reformer exercises does not feel like “working out” at all. Give it a try!… Read More
