    Thanks for this info! I’ve been considering getting a personal trainer, and this list helps me know what I should expect from one. :)

    I’ve been a personal trainer for 10 years and own my own personal training studio. I agree with alot of what you are saying. Alot of things occur at the big corporate gyms like Bally’s, 24 HR, Club One, Gold’s,etc. The one thing I don’t agree with is suggesting to a trainer to pay per session or at the end of the month. I believe that a trainer and client should have a written agreement stating how long their fitness program is and having a set date where the client pays every month. This ensures the trainer that the client is serious, the trainer can plan out there schedule for the next couple of months, and ensures that the client won’t no show or cancel last minute.

    Although I do agree with majority of what your post says.

    I think that a person needs to find the right type of trainer that fits their needs. A passive person doesn’t need a trainer that is passive because they will never be able to live up to their potential. Choosing the right person trainer shouldn’t be rushed.

    I have a personal trainer that it’s always late, tried several times to shorten my sessions, almost never answers my texts. Thinks he is a big shot, and the last thing he did was to try to cut me short of 3 sessions. Plus he is mean and moody. But he did motivate me and I loose a lot a weight and I tone too. But I admitted to him that I won’t buy any more, and he turn to a bigger a…, Now I don’t know what to do? I feel award going back to him. He has some big issues, I think he can’t stand my presence, and I don’t like to feel this way, but I paid for those session, and he was trying to rip me off, I am not sure if they would assign another trainer for me. Please advice.
