So you have made a determined decision to get into shape and to be fit and healthy. Since you are new to exercise workouts and nutrition, you have through some recommendations hired a good personal trainer to help you to achieve your goals. However, do you know what to expect from your gym instructor?
The words "gym instructor" may be a bit misleading because a best physical fitness trainer will be able to put you on an excellent exercise program with or without a gym unless you are into bodybuilding. So if you are aiming just to get into shape or for general fitness such as losing weight, you can choose where you want to work out with your trainer as a good instructor can come up with an excellent training program in any conducive environment.
Expect your instructor to conduct a health check along with your present physical fitness conditions. This is because your instructor has got to understand whether you have any adverse medical condition that he/she should be aware of and also to enable your trainer to plan an effective exercise and nutrition program in accordance with your goals and your physical fitness level. Your instructor will also record your weight and body measurements so that there can be a measurable gauge to check your improvements as you go along.
For those of you who have never embarked on an exercise program before, you may be shocked at the intensity of the exercises. If you feel that the exercises are too rigorous, do open up and ask your trainer to slow down.
There is nothing to be shy about your low fitness level as after all, you are now taking actions to improve it. Nevertheless, a good and experienced trainer will know your level of fitness by just observing you and will adjust the exercise intensity without being told to do so.
