Hire a Trainer to Guide You
Ali Greenman, NASM- and ACE-certified personal trainer and founder of Final Straw Fitness, recommends hiring a certified personal trainer to help you get into your program. "There are so many options in gyms and online these days that they can fit virtually any budget. It will pay back tenfold when you are using your time and energy effectively, efficiently, and, most importantly, safely in the gym!" Paul Searles, CSCS, from the New York Sports Science Lab, also stressed the importance of hiring someone to coach you for at least four months.
