Working with a Certified Personal Trainer isn’t like what you see on TV or in magazines. Generally speaking a personal trainer is not a drill instructor that screams at you until you’re crumpled in a pile of sweat on the floor. Nor does a personal trainer just force the “best” exercises on you regardless of your goals and capabilities.
The role of a Certified Personal Trainer is to work with you to create a customized exercise program designed to fit your needs. Everyone is different and must be treated as an individual. This means that you won’t be working out to whatever the latest crazy happens to be. A personal trainer has a responsibility to ensure that any program provided is appropriate for you.
