Nutrition tip of the Week

Mood Eating

Most people eat based on their mood and/or some subjective feelings of hunger. They don't eat based on what their bodies need. Think of it this way: you're about to take a long drive on a stretch of highway with no gas station. Do you fail to stop for gas before you hit the road because you're 'not in the mood?' Of course not. Think of eating in the same way. Eating fuels your metabolic engine. So it's time to start feeling like eating so that you can stop feeling like you're scrawny. by Dr. John Berardi

Need Help Looking for a Personal Trainer

A Simple Gide to Help Choose a Personal Trainer

Everyone has their own reasons for enlisting the services of a personal trainer. Regardless of the reason, your personal trainer has to possess the skills to help you reach your health and fitness goals. In Atlanta and other cities the listing of fitnesses professionals is lengthy, selecting the someone to help you can be a daunting task. To help you sort through the list I have compiled a few suggestions that may help you select the best personal trainer for your needs.

Credentials are not everything but they are an excellent place to start. This article describes outlines a few credentials worth your consideration when seeking a professional personal trainer.

There are a number of personal trainer certifications for a professional to choose from. There is not a government agency or any regulations involved in personal training, because of this there are many people offering certifications and it is up to you to ensure the certification is reputable.

Out of the many quality agencies in the US those listed below are considered to be among the most respected in the field. It is in your best interest is to find a trainer who is certified by one of the following:

* National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA)
* American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)

* American Council on Exercise (ACE)
* International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA)
* National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)
* National Council of Strength & Fitness (NCSF)
* National Federation of Professional Trainers (NFPT)

All the above trainers with the above certifications have had to demonstrate basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology, exercise prescription, nutrition, and responsibility to the client. Plus they have to be certified in CPR in order to sit for the exams. Most of these certifying bodies require their trainers to continue learning enforcing a minimum amount of continuing education credits.

The above certifying agencies require their trainers to take an exam in person, some certifications allow their candidates to take home exams. If this is the case there is no way to ensure that the trainer in question actually took the exam, or cheated in some way. You can not be sure they have earned their certification.

Something else to look for - Do they practice what they preach? Would you go to a dentist with bad teeth? Why use a personal trainer that is not as fit or healthy as yourself?

I hope I have been able to point you in the right direction in your search for your private personal trainer.
