Top 10 Signs of a Bad Trainer – 10 Things to Consider When Choosing a Personal Trainer

When we begin to learn something, we look for a coach for proper guidance. The same thing happens when we start the workout. A good trainer helps you to burn your calories effectively, as well as build your muscle strength. 
But it isn’t easy to find a good trainer. You often meet a personal trainer who does not have a proper degree but wants to guide you because of money. Don’t come into this trap because you will lose weight and become weaker gradually. Start your journey with a reliable personal trainer because it is your health question.

Here we’ll specify ten symptoms of a bad trainer-Consider these while hiring a personal trainer.

Selling or offering your bodybuilding supplements.

Now, most less qualified trainers try to sell you supplements because health supplements generate huge revenue per year. Pushing to intake protein supplements has become the most glaring issue. When it is the question of your fitness and weight gains, taking supplements is not mandatory. And another point is that without a certified doctor or nutritionist, no one can prescribe you a health supplement; it is ethically wrong. You should not consume any supplements without asking your physician.

Don’t allow body shaming.

There are multiple ways to encourage clients to do workouts regularly. But unfortunately, some trainers choose the negative way of body shaming which is mentally detrimental. Body shaming can’t motivate anyone for bodybuilding training. Instead of that, clients start losing their hope and confidence. If you notice that your trainer body shaming you, don’t allow it because it breeds all types of disorder thinking that demotivates you to perform the workout in the long term

Showing only a single training style

There are many exercise training styles from Olympic Weightlifting, Plyometrics, Flexibility training, Mass Building, and Toning, to Cardiovascular, HIIT, Yoga, Pilates and Flexibility (just to give some examples).
An intolerant and shallow mentor believes that everybody should prepare the same way or with just a single preparation style. For general wellbeing, you want to practice in various ways to challenge the different actual capacities of the human body, for strength, perseverance, adaptability, coordination, balance, dexterity, etc

Don’t create a customized plan

Everyone has a different body structure and nature. So each exercise is not effective for everyone. 
Thus your coach is expected to plan a new workout routine for you. But if he doesn’t do that, he is not a good trainer. As a fitness trainer, he has to create a body fitness program that gives your body a proper balance between weight loss and bodybuilding. If your trainer doesn’t think about the balance, you will experience weakness after a workout because of muscular imbalance that increases the chance of injury.

Promote weight loss before focusing on the muscle building

mentors who just spotlight weight reduction and not muscle/strength building are giving customers a tremendous raw deal. The people who just focus on sheer calories consume cardio, conditioning (lightweight preparing), or center activities, as their main type of activity are working with a cutoff to the amount they can consume and regularly need to limit caloric intake to see improvement intensely. Then again on the off chance that you start with strength preparing to construct a decent base of muscle, you can build your resting digestion just as max calorie consumption for some random exercise, subsequently consuming more calories with a similar relative degree of exertion.

Focus on intensity over-exercise form

Most bodybuilders mainly focus on workout intensity over workout gestures. It is wrong. You need to follow the correct format first; otherwise, you’ll develop a long-term injury. We don’t discourage you from increasing your workout intensity, but you should follow proper workout techniques with it. A proper workout format is vital to focus on during any training. If the correct format is not maintained, you will experience long-term health hazards.                                            

The trainer who doesn’t educate or empower clients

There are many professionals in the industry who have the experience that you must give just enough information to make a client potential enough. But educating and making them understand the logic behind each step is very important before starting your fitness goal.

Promote spot reduction

There are two points. One is just literally a trainer who believes in spot reduction and promises to give quick-fix results because bodybuilding is not a one-day journey; basically, it requires time and effort. So don’t choose the spot reduction option. It is an entirely false commitment. 

Promise quick result

The promising quick result is one of the most common advertising strategies trainers follow. A quick result is not possible in a bodybuilding scenario. Thus jump into their appealing advertisement and think logically.

Talk about only lower ab.

Whole-body exercise is essential to build abs. A trainer who talks about exercise to work on your lower abs does not know the actual logic. There are no exercises that strengthen your lower abs.
Lastly, we would say check his qualification, experience, and reputation. Handgrip training is complementary to bodybuilding exercises.
