#1: A good personal trainer. You must shop around. Talk to their clients, get their philosophies and make sure they ensure a full physical screening before they agree to train you!
You have to talk to the trainers and/or the facility. You should feel comfortable with the conditions of the agreement and the quality of service they are providing. They should be focused on you and your health, not on how many sessions they can get you to buy!
