Top Things to Look for in an Online Personal Trainer

You've made the decision to enlist an online personal trainer to help you with your weight loss or fitness goals. Now you just need to find the right one for you and what you'd like to accomplish. While COVID-19 has resulted in a flurry of personal trainers joining the online domain, it can be tough to discern the real ones from the poseurs. Here's what you should be looking for when trying to choose one. 

Experience and certifications

There are many fitness hobbyists who are looking to make some extra money during the current pandemic by moonlighting as online personal trainers. Try not to be swayed by the amount of followers they may have on social media or the high production value their workouts contain. Look for an online personal trainer who has been doing this for a while and has the certifications to back it up. And don't be afraid to ask them about their certifications. An experienced online personal trainer will be happy to talk in depth about it. A fly-by-night one, not so much.

Dedicated one-on-one instruction

Anyone can boot up an online training video and start working out right away. Similarly, anyone can simply just tell you to increase your volume or intensity on a predescribed timeline regardless of the progress you're making. What you want from an online personal trainer is contact. You want to make sure your online personal trainer understands the challenges or successes you're having, and adapts your training program accordingly. Ask any potential online personal trainer what the level of contact, guidance, and instruction they offer their clients is. You may have to pay a premium, but it'll be worth it in the end. 

Accountability and freedom

Only you know the level of self-motivation you bring to the table when it comes to meeting your weight loss or fitness goals. Are you somebody who needs a trainer cracking the whip every other day to ensure you're staying on track? Or can you be given some general guidance and go about your merry way making sure you work out when you need to? It's important to be honest with yourself and identify beforehand what type of an online personal trainer you're looking for. That way you can pick the one who's right for you and your motivation level. On the flip side, you also want an online personal trainer who is fine with you learning what they have to teach so you can embark on your own fitness program using the knowledge they've given you. That's really the point of all this in the end. And always be wary of online personal trainers who seem to be holding back information. They may be more focused on keeping you as a client as opposed to helping you achieve your goals.
