Finding a Personal Trainer
Look for an ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) certified trainer.


The ACSM is the preeminent sports medicine org. Check out http://acsm.org

Full disclosure: I'm ACSM certified.

Looking for exercise ideas.... for a VERY busy professional.
For weight/conditioning make walking part of your commute. e.g. get up earlier. Can you put a treadmill in your office? If so, look into trek desk (http://www.trekdesk.com/) which allows you to walk and work.

For strength training: 20 min a week: buy a pair of dumbbell bars some weights, and an inclining bench for home or office. Then, do 7 or 8 exercises. One set, 8-12 reps, with the heaviest possible weights, to volitional failure. (start slowly, though, and work up) Work out 2x per week, 10 minutes per session = 15 to 20 minutes per week.

Start with weights you can only lift 8 reps. Keep at this weight increasing reps, 2x per week, until you can do 12 reps, then add a little weight so that you can lift for 8 reps (remember, only one set is necessary) The trick is to add a little weight. With dumbell bars you can get 1.25 lb plates, which allow an increase of 2.5 lbs (2 plates per bar)

BTW, I'm an ACSM certified trainer.

Personal Training Withdrawl?
There is no need for a personal trainer if you can read. There are very good websites that can help you. Try http://exrx.net It's all about physical fitness.

Now I train out at a small gym I installed in my office, but when I worked out at a gym I noticed that the pt's always seemed to make themselves essential to the client (hand them the weights, clean the benches, make the clients use the pt's body as a part of the exercise -"raise you arms until you touch my hand," etc).

Use a personal trainer if: a. the commitment is the only way you'll get to the gym to work out, or b. you need someone to talk to. When I worked out at a gym it seemed the pt and the client were usually both acting as if they were in therapy.(but, of course, I live in New York City)

Ironically, I just certified as a pt by the American College of Sports Medicine, but that's because I'd like to make a video on how to work out, and I want to have the credentials.
