Get the Most Out of Your Trainer

So you finally took the plunge and hired some help? Make every second of your precious sessions count with these nine tips from top trainers.

So if your trainer doesn’t give you “homework” for your off days, request it, says Mellinger. “Ask for specific guidelines as to what activities or exercises you should do, including intensity and duration of the exercises.” If you train total body with your trainer, on off days he may suggest cardio, a lighter version of what you do together, or cross-training with your favorite sport.
