Paytra Gessler on finding a good gym and trainer:

I would honestly start out with Yelp reviews of the gym. Some gyms are just trying to sell you something. Look at reviews to see how they approach situations. Some gyms offer free sessions. Like, one free personal training session. That’s a big red light because that means they are going to try to sell you something after, so that just means you should be prepared for what you want. As far as research, honestly recommendations. Find somebody who has the same goals as you or a good friend that you trust and ask them to refer you to somebody good. Because someone could be a trainer and not necessarily know how to train.
