Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) January 1, 2006 -- Every January 2nd millions of Americans, armed with their latest resolution they made the day before to lose weight and get in shape, start their annual attempt at making this the year they make positive, permanent healthy lifestyle changes. By February most of the ambition has faded and virtually all have returned to their familiar position - plopped in front of the television eating God knows what. National Personal Trainer Awareness Day was founded with the hopes of preventing this from continuing to happen.
"Personal trainers play a crucial role in helping people actually achieve their health and fitness goals", said Shondelle Solomon-Miles, a fitness expert based out of Hollywood, FL. SHE went on to add "Trainers are highly educated and are not the tank top wearing 'muscle-heads' many people associate with the word personal trainer."
Solomon-Miles believes that today's fitness professionals are able to help people in a number of important ways:
-- Designing fitness programs that achieve far greater results in much less time than most people think possible.
-- Decrease their risk of injury while exercising significantly.
-- Keeping them motivated and help them set realistic goals.
-- Acting as a role model and support person to help them stay focused on living a healthy lifestyle.
Shondelle Solomon-miles offers up the following suggestions for selecting the right trainer:
1) Ask your inner circle of friends, business associates or family if they know of any local trainers. The best trainers are usually found by word of mouth referral.
2) Define your goals and interview several trainers who specialize in working with people just like you. If you want general fitness conditioning you are not going to hire a trainer who specializes in training power lifters.
3) Try several trainers before you make your final choice. Most trainers will offer a trial period to see if personalities are compatible.
4) Take the time to check references and learn about the trainer’s background. A good trainer will provide a potential client with references of a few past and current clients as well as the sources of their certifications or degrees.
