What should you look for Hiring a Martial Arts Instructor for Mixed Martial Arts Training?

Are you looking for a qualified martial arts instructor offering MMA or mixed martial arts training sessions? Do you need to improve your boxing skills with the help of a professional boxing instructor? Well, in each case you need a personal trainer or PT who can show you the right direction. However, it often becomes a tough job to find out the perfect personal trainer to suit your fitness needs. Here are a few points that you should consider before appointing a personal trainer for yourself:

What to look for before hiring a PT or personal trainer?

  • Prior to choosing an expert personal trainer, you must ask for some references. It is the best possible way to get true and honest information about them. You might be in need of a yoga mentor skilled in Bikram Yoga. In fact, you may also be searching for martial arts instructor, specialized in ‘Taekwondo’. Whatever your requirement is, a prospective trainer in that field should happily provide you with a contact list of his or her clients.
  • A proficient personal training provider must be a certified one. Make sure that your preferred personal trainer is certified by any one of the NSCA, ACE, or ACSM.
  • The exercise or training philosophy of a credible trainer should be clear enough. It is certainly true that the training principles of different fitness regimes are different. The principles followed by a bootcamp and outdoor training expert, say Richard Lewis in Sydney, would never match that of sports-specific and martial arts professional, say Michael Hansen in Perth. However, you can always enquire about the way they help their clients meet their health and fitness goals efficiently. It would mirror the credibility of the trainer.
  • Charge of the fitness instructor is another vital aspect you should focus on before joining a training program. The average rate of a skilled personal fitness trainer would differ extensively depending upon the qualification and experience of him or her. The area where the service is offered also has a deep impact on the charges of the service providers. It clearly indicates that the consultation fee of a corporate fitness provider, say Jason Dick in Victoria Park, per hour training charge of a mixed martial arts trainer, say Shane Suisted in Sydney, or the average monthly rate of a corporate fitness, and  martial arts instructor, say Michael Hansen in Perth are completely different from each other.

Finally, do not get impressed by the physical appearance of a personal trainer. It is obvious that a martial arts instructor providing MMA or mixed martial arts training or a bootcamp trainer, specialized in army-inspired styles and techniques, does not need to look like a model. Their fitness level should reflect their proficiency and that’s all.
