I stumbled on the best trainer ever for me by accident and I could not agree more on what the article said about the questions to ask.
My first trainer was totally wrong for me because her goals did not match mine at all and she was still learning how to be a personal trainer. She took what her trainer taught and tried to use it on me and the excercises were much too advanced for me. The trainer I have now varies workouts and carefully evaluates what I am capable of before giving me an exercise. I have worked with her for over a year once a week and although I do not look all that different, my strength and stamina have increased as well as my balance. Her goals for me match what I have though. I did not want to be super fit , but I needed strength and balance.
Those questions would have been handy to have when I met my first trainer. It was only by luck that I got a trainer perfect for me.
