There are many things you should look into before hiring a personal trainer..
Qualifications and experience..
Nowadays training providers can get you qualified in as little as 6 weeks!
Now this isn’t a bad thing, however many people qualifying in this short space of time lack a lot of experience. I’ve been in the industry for 8 years now and am still learning as I go. Some people claim to know it all and are suddenly experts in everything. If you have been recommended the trainer by someone else then they have probably got this person the results they were after. So have a chat with them!
Jack of all trades...
Look for a trainer who doesn’t claim to be an expert in everything! This is impossible! Look for someone who is an expert in what you’re looking to achieve. This will ensure you get the best results possible for you. e.g The Fit Project specialise in female fat loss transformations.
Some trainers will be very knowledgeable but not have a personality to match!
This is very important as a client to be able to build a rapport with your trainer and enjoy what you do. If you enjoy what you’re doing, you’re more likely to stay motivated and succeed!
Make sure you are offered a consultation with your potential trainer. This will allow you to learn more about each other and whether they can help you. Can they help you with any injuries you may have? Are they specialist in what your goals are?
Write a list of questions down that you want to ask them.
A personal trainer should be results driven! If they are not getting results with other clients then ask yourself why..
Many will keep client transformation testimonials should you wish to see them.
Do they walk the walk..
Personally I think this is essential. Do they train? Do they look in good shape? A trainer that’s not in shape may well know their stuff, but do you want a trainer who is out of shape to be training you?
What else can they offer apart from face to face
Do they include nutrition help?
Do they keep in contact with you?
Do they want the results as much as you?
Here at The Fit Project we include these in our packages! We won't sell just single sessions to try and make a quick sale. We will find what is suitable for you.
These are just some of the things to look for when hiring your personal trainer. The Fit Project is a team! If one of our team can't help you then we can assure you that someone else in the team can.

-Helps remove lactic acid
-Cheaper than getting massages all the time
We always recommend rolling before and after any kind of exercise. It may feel like its hurting to start with. Once you get into a routine of knowing what muscles to work you will begin to feel at ease with the sensation and notice a big difference in your movement and feel more mobile.
