    I sought a trainer based upon my specific goals, expecting his personal goals to be the same.

    Thus, I wanted a trainer who is a marathoner so he could relate to those tiny little things not generally known. Also, looked at his personal history and if he made improvements himself.

    Now, I have the best guy for me.

    Good luck

    You may have missed the RJ article on this very topic:

    However, for me, it's about choosing a trainer that believes in what they teach. And their appearance is half the game. If they're out of shape, walk the other way.

    Next, is about knowledge. Do they have the necessary training and credentials to be in the profession? Can they approach a session with a thoughtful routine that achieves results. Do they keep up their knowledge on the subject with additional education?

    Last, is about chemistry. If you don't like being around them, you won't work out (I actually had one of these). However, if they can motivate you, your workouts will achieve results.

    Also I think I should mention I have a trainer, he's freakin great. I lost the weight I wanted and in a timely manner. I still got to eat the things I wanted and when we trained I enjoyed it and he and I consider each other good friends.

    The reason I asked this question was more of a generic broad question icon_cool.gif
