Fitness instructor Scott Keppel shares why a woman who is new to exercise may want to consider getting a trainer.

Fitness Instructor Scott Keppel:
That’s a great question, if you're new to exercise, the reason I would recommend you visit your local trainer, and most gyms will offer you a free membership, most studios like I own, will offer an individual a free assessment, It’s because we can look at an individual as a trainer and say, “There’s more to a squat than squatting, and when you squat your knees buckle. You come up on your toes; you’re going to put more stress on your knees. Now if you’re going to try and add weight, you’re going to injure yourself."

"When you’re doing your push-ups, your hands are out too far. So you’re putting more pressure on your anterior delts, the front of your shoulders, than your chest." So a trainer can assess you and say, “Okay, this is what you should do for you. I understand that your friend does this and your other friend does this, but you are your own self. So these are the best movements and work out routine for yourself.”

So if you don’t have the money, which depending on where you live, trainers, we’re not free. So you can easily go in and get a free assessment, have them look at you. It’s just like taking your car out. Before you’re going on a long road trip you’re going to want to make sure everything is in alignment, everything is assessed, same with your body.

Before you go on this long journey, first get a doctor’s clearance. Make sure that everything is okay. If your doctor gives you the green light, go ahead and exercise, get a trainer, just have them look at what you have and then go from there.
