Indeed, anyone can get you out of breath – making you sweat and feel tired during a workout does not take a hugely experienced, knowledgeable, competent personal trainer. However, putting together a workout programme that will make you stronger, fitter and healthier than you were before you started – well that’s a different story!
A good personal trainer will take into account your lifestyle, injuries, what type of day and week that you’ve had, your goals and your exercise experience up to this point. They will not mindlessly put you on the treadmill for half an hour!
So if you just want to get sweaty and out of breath, then that’s not hard to do. But if you want real results, achieved without injury, then look for a great personal trainer who is recommended either on social media, or even better, by your colleagues, friends or family.
