How to Be a Good Personal Training Client

Part of the Weight Training For Dummies Cheat Sheet (Australia/New Zealand Edition)

When you sign up with a personal trainer, you’re not employing a counsellor or a mind-reader. Here are some simple tips for maintaining a good relationship with your trainer:

  • Show up on time. Trainers are professional people with busy schedules and bills to pay, so show them some courtesy.

  • Have a good attitude. Your trainer doesn’t want to hear you whine about your boss or your latest speeding ticket.

  • Listen to your trainer. When your trainer advises you to perform 12 repetitions per set, don’t say, ‘My stockbroker said I should do 40.’

  • Speak up. Don’t be afraid to ask why you pull a bar down to your chest rather than to your belly button.
