Match Your Weightlifting Trainer to Your Personality

Have you considered hiring a personal trainer to boost your weightlifting results? It makes sense for a lot of reasons to reach out to a trained professional for help in this and many other areas of your life. When you need help solving a specific problem, you hire an expert that knows a lot in a particular area. You don’t try to handle any electrical tasks around your house, and you call a plumber when you have a water problem.

Why not consider the same strategy concerning your fitness efforts? Hire a strength training expert to help you in your weightlifting efforts. They can teach you proper technique, give you some tips to get reach your goals quicker and more efficiently, and help minimize injuries. If you pay someone for their weightlifting knowledge, just remember the following:

  • Male weightlifting trainers are often overbearing, loud and “in-your-face”.
  • Most female strength trainers alternatively offer positive self-encouragement and feedback.

How do you respond when someone tries to teach you with an aggressive approach? Do you find yourself performing better when someone uses more of a calm, nurturing, “hold your hand” teaching process? Does teaching style even matter to you, as long as you know you can reach your intended goals?

The tip here is to hire a trainer that is a good fit for your learning style. Ask around. Check out online reviews. Before you invest your hard-earned money in a weightlifting coach, make sure you choose one that is going to fit your personality and goal set. You will maximize your efforts and results, and enjoy the experience along the way.
