What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would advise the client to meet their trainer in person. (Example, don't pay the fitness manager/owner any money until you meet the trainer he is hiring for you!) Make sure their personality and coaching style fits the type of trainer you are looking for. Resumes are great but its really the personality of a "personal trainer" that matters. You need to have a connection, a friendship, a trust with your trainer. Make sure they truly care and are considerate of YOUR specific goals and not just interested in taking your money and blurting out big anatomy words during your training.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What's their availability for you? Are they too busy? Is their schedule flexible? What are their policies to cancel? What is their fitness lifestyle? Do they demonstrate and represent a healthy lifestyle of a personal trainer? Are they always on their cell phone? Can they relate to your goals? Do they have experience/knowledge to train you to reach your goals? Can they answer any questions you ask them regarding your workouts, like 'why is this specific drill going to benefit me to reach my goals'? If something on your body hurts while your training, can they stop and help you mobalize that area? Do they teach you about mobility/stretching in addition to your workouts?
