What Does a Personal Trainer Do?
Maybe you have a vague idea of hiring a personal trainer but don’t really know what to expect. Here’s a short rundown of what a personal trainer actually does for you.
Evaluates Your Current Fitness
The first role of the personal trainer is to assess your current level of fitness. This includes asking a multitude of questions covering your daily habits and medical history and possibly checking some basic physical feats.
Helps You Set Goals
After evaluating your level of fitness, your personal trainer will help you set S.M.A.R.T. goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, time-bound) in both the short and long term to give you targets to shoot for.
Creates a Plan
The expertise and knowledge of your personal trainer begins to shine here when they help you create a solid plan on how to achieve the goals that you set for yourself.
Helps You Execute Your Plan
Your trainer can’t actually do the exercise and workouts for you, but it’s their job to make sure you execute your workout plan safely, with good form, and with enough effort to actually get stronger and/or lose more body fat.
Challenges and Motivates You
Throughout the entire training process, your personal trainer should be presenting you with adequate challenges that yield further progress while supplying you with the motivation you need to put forth your best effort.

The Novice Elite Certification
Working with a personal trainer can be a valid decision if you want one-on-one guidance reaching your personal fitness goals. But how do you know who to hire?
Picking the right personal trainer can be a difficult task and that’s why we created the Novice Elite Certification. Personal trainers certified as Novice Elite are recognized as leaders in the fitness industry in terms of excellence and dedication when training beginners to build muscle and lose body fat.
Here are the qualities of personal trainers with the Novice Elite certification:
Excel at Training Beginners
Here at Noob Gains, the strategies and tips you’ll find on how to build muscle and lose body fat will always be targeted for beginners whether you’re completely new, still in the early stages, or a frustrated gym junkie that’s been spinning your wheels for awhile.
And following right in line, the personal trainers I recommend are experts in working with, motivating, and getting results with fitness beginners.
They understand that fitness strategies exist at different experience levels and know how to teach the right muscle-building and fat loss methods that will breed elite novices.
Focuses on Building Muscular Strength
There are a lot of different fitness philosophies out there, but as more research accumulates the fitness industry can’t deny that one of the most important aspects of superior health, longevity, and impressive physiques is the improvement of muscular strength.
Personal trainers certified as Novice Elite not only understand and agree with this philosophy, but focus their teachings and training sessions around this concept.
Presents Suitable Challenges
Coinciding with beginner training concepts – creating a challenging environment that breeds improvement without causing motivational deterioration can be challenging.
Really, achieving a physical transformation is roughly 10% working out, 40% dieting, and 50% mindset.
Novice Elite certified personal trainers know that cultivating a winning mindset is a major portion of achieving fitness results and being able to present challenges that move the needle towards success is their strength.
