first you need to determine what you really want. What kind of exercises do you like to do? If you absolutely hate lifting weights, then you want to make sure the trainer knows that. If you can't do certain exercises, make sure you tell that to them too.
Interview them. They are trying to get your business. make sure they are the right fit. Price is also a contender. Most gyms that I have attended is $25 for 30 minutes.
I have had two trainers that I used back at forth at LA fitness when I first joined. I have/had a leg issue after falling down stairs. I have a very bad bone bruise and depending on some of the exercises would mean pain or not. One of the trainers was into more of a bootcamp style. the other was more of a geriatric/rehab specialist. together both worked well. It didn't cost me any additional money to have two trainers.
Now i am back at LA Fitness (I moved and they didn't have them here). LAF bought out one of the gyms here so I am back. the trainer I have is definitely more into cross fit. Not sure about it, but they are starting me out slow. Building endurance and stamina first.
I told them my goals. I told them what i knew I could do and couldn't. My workouts are 30 minutes.
