As a celebrity, once you have made a decision to lead a healthier lifestyle like losing some pounds, it is absolutely important to ensure that you enlist a professional. However, it can be difficult to differentiate between a legitimate celebrity personal trainer and a quirk, especially to the untrained eye. This means that many people are often victims of individual coaches, programs, or companies promising to help them lose weight with minimal or no expertise at all.
Here are useful advice on who can assist you shed some pounds and who is simply out to get you lose your hard earned money.
Uncertified Celebrity Personal Trainers
If a trainer claims to be “board certified” by a body that you have never heard of, by the organization he/she works for, or literally lacks any credentials, he/she is definitely not worth your time. If you are looking for a credible celebrity personal trainer, you should opt for a registered dietitian nutritionist or a registered dietitian. A coach with such credentials and training will not only help you shed some pounds, but also advice you on the best diet to follow.
Someone who is only Focused on the Money
The level of expertise of a registered dietitian trumps most other certified coaches several times. Additionally, the commitment required to become a registered dietitian demonstrates a dedication to making the lives of other people better through nutrition. This means that a registered dietitian is not just a random guy who wants to make a quick buck. In short, always avoid anyone who looks too promotional as this is a sign the individual is probably not qualified to help you lose weight the healthy way. It also shows that the individual is only out to convince you to part with your money.
Anyone Recommending Extreme Diets
If you find a celebrity personal trainer who advices you to do away with certain major food groups such as carbohydrates from your diet, you need to be wary of the individual. A legitimate coach will tell you that a sustainable weight loss program is based on a balanced diet that encompasses all major food groups. Avoid coaches that suggest juicing, fasting, or totally eliminating gluten from your diet.
The trick to effective fitness lies in choosing the right coach. First you should avoid anyone without legit credentials. Secondly, avoid anyone that sound too promotional. Lastly, avoid anyone recommending extreme diets. To be safe, try to verify everything that a celebrity personal trainer claims. You can easily do this by looking at his or her past client testimonials or checking the type of reviews he or she is getting from local online review sites.
