How do I choose a trairLeri' Chris: In the past I have taken it upon myself to stay in shape, but ever since I turned 30 I have found it much more difficult. For the first time in my life I am considering hiring a personal trainer. The problem is that I don't know where to start. My first instinct is to choose a trainer that looks the way I would like to look. What are your thoughts on this? - John Chris Antonio John: If you already have a trainer in mind, talk to some of the people he or she is already training. Ask them why they chose this person to be their trainer. Good trainers will have a long list of successful clients who will be willing to tell their story to you. All you have to do is ask. Choose a life coach. Good trainers should not only put you through tough workouts but should take your entire lifestyle into consideration. They should help you make a plan for success There is no doubt in my mind that is best for you. Good trainers that choosing the right trainer can make the difference between suc-. cess and failure. That's why it's important to take several things into consideration before making your final decision. Here are some thoughts on what to look for find What to stay away from: Choose a motivator. I don't care how smart you are or where you got your training credentials from. If you're not good with people, you will never get your message across. A good trainer should be someone :you can relate to. He or he should be able to get you to do things you wouldn't do on your own.. As soon as you get close tO reaching your goal, the trainer is already planning your next conquest. Choose someone with a good reputation. Take the time to ask people around the gym who they believe would be a good choice. will want to discuss your diet, your work schedule, previous in- juries or anything that could pos- sible derail you from reaching your goal. I believe the training starts long before you enter the gym and should continue well af- ter the training session is over. Beware of rep counters and clipboard holders. It's easy to spot these people. They are the trainers who really aren't paying much attention to what their tienBi:are doing. They bring a lipb0d with the same old work- out time after time. They pay lit- tle attention to proper form and could care less if you are getting results, as 10rig as you're still writ- ing the checks. Don't fall for quick fixes or gimmicky exercises. Some train- ers will try to get your attention by dazzling you with special work- outs and fancy exercises. Don't Cape Region Athletes Of The Week DIANA MUMFORD A junior basketball player with an infectious smile, Di- ana is a three-year veteran who just keeps getting bet- ter and better with each sea- son. This Cape honors stu- dent speeds around the court with cat-like moves and can mix it up under- neath the basket with the big girls, too. "Diana has re- ally improved her game tremendously since last year," says coach Tom Finnegan. COREY CELLURALE Just a junior, Corey brings many years of experience in the pool and can:score points in numerous events. She is expected to make an impact in the 100-meter backstroke, 100-meter freestyle, 200-meter relay and the 400-meter freestyle relay. "She has committed herself to getting better," says Cape coach Bill Gep- pert.'She is definitely going to be an asset to the team this season." CAPE G ZETIE, Friday, December 1 - Monday, December 4, 2006 - 133 AS THE TRAINER fall for it. Pick someone who un- derstands the science behind working out. Allow him or her to teach you the basics first before deciding to train you like a pro athlete. Watch out for profiteers. These are the people who became train- ers because they believe it is easy money. Most of these people have little to n 9 experience themselves. They started lifting a couple of years ago and figured anyone can become a trainer as long as he or she can pass an online test. These people often try to sell themselves to get clients instead of relying on their reputation. In my opinion, the best trainers are the ones who have learned throug h experience. Chris Antonio is a personal trainer at Gold's Gym in Re- hoboth Beach. Ernail designfit@earthlink.net to ask a question. DANIEL SCRUTCHFIELD This sophomore honor stu- dent at Cape is making the move from the Viking golf Hnks to the indoor track this season for coach George Pepper.

Sam Leggins eludes People Continued from page 131 for Milford, all had the same classy, no-trash talking fearless competitive personalitieS, but none are beyond getting in the last word either Sam's life was a celebration and inspiration worthy of imitation, no question about that.

HEAT-SEEKING MISSILES ' I grew personally weary of the "Why was coach Dwight Tingle suspended from coaching du- ties?" story, seeing an image of Dwight in sharp focus, while out in the community, heat-seeking missiles with no names were fired at his head. I reppect all involved inside the system of rules and reg- Ulations because the bottom line is always protect the interest of the student/athletes first. There- fore, serious concerns passed frorrr DIAA to the home school, in this case Cape, must be investi- gated. That is just how the system works.- What I don't appreciate are people who talk smack about coaches but take.no ownership for their comments. And that behav- ior in our community is bordering on out of control. Complaints are sometimes necessary and if you are the complainer, just rise up and take credit. Peace out! Go on now, gift
