Maybe you are thinking, I haven’t got a fitness centre near me


Don’t despair, just because you might not be located near a fitness center in Dubai doesn’t mean you can’t take control of your fitness with an online personal trainer


The Internet can be so difficult to navigate and is a bit of a minefield when it comes to finding the right trainer. You can find many personal trainers in a good fitness centres in Dubai, but again finding a trainer online is like finding a designer bag, is it going to be genuine or a fake? We are going to shed some light on the best ways to go about it. Are you ready? Let's get to it…


You have the whole world


Is there a fitness centre near me? This question no longer matters. Ok so when you head to Google it will usually search via your local area so you are likely to find trainers, which are somewhat in your immediate vicinity. The good news is that with searching online you do have access to the whole world! You can find critically acclaimed trainers from all over the globe! The right one is out there for you!


What are his/her credentials?


You might have read profiles on trainers in fitness centres Dubai, but you need to think what your goal is and what do you want from your trainer? Is your goal to add muscle mass or is your goal an extreme weight loss transformation? Ensure your trainer displays visual results of previous clients achievements and is qualified in the areas you need to benefit from. Check out the skills and qualifications and ensure they are right for you.


Dig a little deeper and test the waters


Speak to a few different online personal trainers. Allow them to answer your questions and don’t be afraid to ask exactly what you need to! Find out what they are like and how they interact with you. Are they quick with their responses or are they taking days to reply. All of these things matter. 


Look for a solid online presence 


Ensure your trainer has a good reputation. You can find proof of this via client testimonials, social media reviews, page likes etc. Also it should be expected that your trainer has a professional look to their online front, be it a polished website alongside a polished social media image. Professionalism is everything in look and behaviour.


Before you start looking for your personal trainer ensure you have these questions written down and ensure the potential trainer can answer them all for you:

  • What are your coaching specialisations? (Strength training, cardio and weight loss, etc.)
  • What training have you done? What skills do you have? What nationally recognised qualifications do you have?
  • How do you keep up to date with the latest coaching techniques? Are you still studying the latest techniques?
  • What kind of clients do you usually work with? What are your results usually like? (ensure you can see proof)
