How to Interview a Trainer Remember that the trainer will be working for you. Your first meeting should thus be like a job interview, where you will ask important questions, like: > What credentials do you hold, and how many years have you spent in the fitness industry as a personal trainer? > What are the motivational techniques you often use on your clients so they can reach their goals? > After learning about my specific fitness goals, what type of workout plan will you create for me? > Can you give me some client references I can call? > What hours are free to train me? If a trainer won’t commit to a schedule that’s convenient for you, obviously, you’ll have to find another one who will. > What fitness assessments (strength and stability, body fat testing, etc.) do you usually perform, and how often do you do them? > What is your policy on cancellations? Typically, you need to tell your trainer 24-48 hours ahead of the session you intend to cancel so you won’t be charged for it.
