You should be super choosy when it comes to your prospective trainer, tribe, and team. Your goal is to find people who are body positive, who believe in health at every size, and who have an empowering approach to nutrition (as opposed to a diet-focused approach).
Whether you're considering working one-on-one with a personal trainer or joining a gym, boot camp, or other group fitness class, you should ask questions until you feel like you have a real sense of the instructor or place, the vibe in the space, and how their values fit with yours, Green says.
Some questions might include:
• What's your approach to healthy nutrition?
• Do you believe that healthy and fit bodies come in a range of shapes and sizes?
• What's your experience working with the plus-size demographic?
• Can you describe your training style?
