It can be intimidating to try something new, including personal training. When you don’t know what to expect, it’s harder to take that first step- even if you show all the signs that training is right for you.

Use this guide to your first personal training session to prepare yourself.

What to Expect from Your First Personal Training Session

Personal training session 2When your personal trainer meets you, they want to get to know you. Since personal training is, well, personal, they need to be able to connect with you, understand you, and grasp what your goals and challenges are.

So, during your first session, expect to have a conversation and to:

  • Fill out forms, like the waiver of liability
  • Complete a fitness assessment
  • Get in a brief workout
  • Outline a plan together to meet your goals

Prepare for Your First Session Ahead of Time

Personal training session 3To ensure you’re comfortable during your first personal training session, it’s wise to prepare ahead of time.

Most importantly, take the time to think through important information like:

  • What your goals are
  • The greatest obstacles to reaching your goals
  • Your history with health, illness, and fitness
  • Any questions you have about training or the gym

If it helps to write this information down and bring it with you, go for it!

You should also come prepared by:

  • Dressing comfortably
  • Resting ahead of time to be ready to exercise
  • Bringing water to stay hydrated
  • Being ready to learn
