Anyone out there looking to get in shape with the help of a trainer, please, PLEASE do your research!!!! I'm not just talking about competition training, anyone wanting to lose some weight and needing some guidance too, everyone must do their research. Said trainer should be able to tell you what they are certified in to train, how long they have been training, testimonial from clients, heck even a college degree in exercise science or a related field (although that is just a HUGE bonus) most trainers simply go through an online program and are on their way.
I am not saying anything negative about trainers that get their certifications online, many of them are phenomenal trainers, they take it seriously and get all they can out of it.
I happen to be fortunate enough to have Kyle with his degree, he truly understands the human body. I am living proof of that, oh man I can't wait for May to share the changes from October!!!
Here is an exchange with someone I know who happens to be a trainer. I was disgusted by his initial post on FB and thought, how in the hell can any trainer possibly have this thought and post it on his training page??? How can any trainer possibly look down on a physique that is the epitome of perfection in the world of figure competing. Her muscularity is out of this world, her leanness and shape, oh man I could go on and on! The ridiculously fit woman he is referring to is Nicole Wilkins, three time Olympia figure champion.
Here is his post:
Dedication. ..or addiction? Sorry but she'll die early. Addict
