What To Look For In A Personal Trainer

Also known as a Movement, Strength & Rehab Coach

Finding a Personal Trainer might seem daunting. You might be worried that you will not find the right person to mentor you; but it needn’t be like that.

Come and meet our friendly, dedicated team here at Adaptive Strength (formerly Box33) and we can sit down and discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have.

How Can We Help You?

Not everyone is the same.

You may be recovering from injury, your goal may be weight loss, or simply just to gain fitness and independence by feeling more confident with your new body shape.

No matter what your goal is, your Personal Coach must listen to you and offer you advice and help. A committed Coach will ask you questions like – “Do you have injuries or pain?”, “What is your lifestyle like?”, “How is your current ability with exercise?”, and most importantly “What do you want to achieve?”

By asking the right questions and listening carefully to your answers, your Movement, Strength & Rehab Coach can design a program specific for your needs and current fitness level.

It really does not matter if you are new to exercise, suffer from an injury or a seasoned athlete, we can tailor training to you.

Certification And Education

It is always important to make sure your Personal Trainer has been certified by a reputable fitness organization. However, that is just the start, ask questions and find out what other qualifications they have?

You are trying to find out if they are dedicated and committed to furthering either knowledge in the area of health and fitness.

A good qualification to look for is StrongFirst. Is your coach StrongFirst certified? Why is this certification so good? It is because, to pass, it is so grueling mentally and physically that typically only 30% of participants pass when attending the certification course. So when you being coached by a StrongFirst Certified Instructor, you are learning from the best.


It is always wise to choose a Coach that not only has education but experience, especially if you have health issues or wishing to achieve specific goal.

Find someone who often deals with your particular needs.

Be it back, neck and shoulder problems, you want someone who has the knowledge and experience in these fields.


It is important that when looking for a Personal Trainer you find someone who will motivate and inspire you with your fitness program.

It is imperative that your coach does not irritate or intimidate you. They will listen to you and give you their full attention during your sessions.

Your fitness session is about you; therefore your coach should not be socialising with others or answering phone calls.

Whilst some people respond well to the sergeant like approach – drop and give me 20 – others may not and prefer a firm but patient guidance, so your Personal Coach must be aware of your personal style.

Warning Signs

It is always important that as you begin working with your Personal Coach that you keep in mind that you are a paying client and this is your investment.

You have every right to be concerned and frustrated if your coach ignores or dismisses your questions or concerns.

Your Personal Coach should not work you too hard to the point of fatigue or pain, however it is expected that you will have a little muscle soreness. Killing you in a session should never be the goal. Personal trainers that do that, often lack the skills to plan a long term sustainable approach to health and fitness.

A good coach should always refer you to a doctor or allied health professional if illness or injury are present, they should never self-diagnose.

Taking Action

Finding a Personal Trainer here in Perth should not be a daunting experience. Remember to ask questions and find a coach that will motivate and inspire you with your health and fitness program.
