Looking to Assess Imbalances

I’m planning to start on Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength program. But before I do, I’d like to find a very qualified trainer to assess my imbalances and get me in good squatting/deadlifting/cleaning form.

I’m located in Silicon Valley. Obviously I can’t trust any old “personal trainer.” Anybody know how I can find someone I can trust?

In other words, how do you find a trainer who’s skilled at finding and correcting imbalances?

Check this website:


They’re located in Cali and are having some kind of seminar this summer that goes over all of this stuff.


I’d read that whole series. It is certainly a start, but if you find someone that is good with assessing everything it would definitely be worth checking out.
