Choosing the right personal trainer to help you set a realistic goal and work towards achieving it will need some research and legwork. Here are 8 crucial points you need to keep in mind while fixing a PT for you here in UAE.

REPsUAE Registration

First and foremost, and you could say, the most important of the conditions is that your PT must posses his professional and experience certificates. You can be assured that he has met the standards and is trustworthy if he has the REPsUAE registration in his area of expertise .

​Experience

A trainer who has been doing his job since years can be counted upon. He will know the best ways to work towards achieving your fitness goals and each workout will bring in some results in you. Also, if there is someone who is knowledgable and experienced in your area of interest, go with him. After All, we know practice makes perfect.

​Personality

Some people are positive. So positive that you will feel like spending more time with them. & in your fitness journey, you need someone who will cheer you up when you workout, not someone who will scream at you. And there are people who like their trainers to be aggressive when they so any exercise. Either way, make sure you learn about the PT by spending some time with them.

​Philosophy

Before starting your experience, make sure you want to mae it work rather than break it! The PT’s plans for you will be based on certain philosophy. Some may believe in only-gym based workouts, and some may follow both gym and outdoor workouts. Some may train you to use machines, some will stick to free weights. Whatever it is, all you have to do is talk it out and understand whether it makes sense to your beliefs.

​Specialties

There is no use hiring a PT if he’s a ‘jack of all trades’. For example, if you’re specifically looking for any kind of fitness sport such as kickboxing, you will have to work with a trainer who is experienced and passionate about kickboxing.

​Location

Whether you want to work out in a posh, crowded gym or in your own privacy at your home, there shall be a PT for every location. Be it in Dubai or Sarjah, a PT (or even you) must be willing to travel to reach you (or him).

​Cost

Your budget matters. Sit and fix your budget before you start hunting for a PT. There are factors such as certifications, experience, specialty and location that will determine a PT’s fee. When some hourly solo-sessions can go up your budget, there are trainers who will charge less for group trainings.

​Availability

Sticking to a schedule is always recommended. Talk to your PT about his schedule, know about the number of clients he have, how well-in-advance does he like booking his appointment and (in case) cancelling them.

These are the guidelines in selecting your personal trainer. But there are trainers who might not cover these points but you might think be a natural fit for helping you achieve your fitness goals.
