I am frequently asked “what programs do you offer.” My response is frequently received with some objection. This tells me that most people do not understand the practice of “Personal Training.” It would seem that with all the media behind personal training and the plethora of gyms that offer the service most people would be very much aware of what the practice is and what it is not. However, there is a cloud of misunderstanding about it. Therefore, I will make an attempt to clarify the service, its practice and scope of practice.
Personal trainers typically have a background in exercise science, fitness, or related fields and are certified by reputable organizations, such as the American Council on Exercise (ACE) or the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). This certification ensures they have the necessary knowledge and expertise to create safe and effective exercise routines tailored to an individual's specific needs, abilities, and limitations. Also, all certified personal trainers must operate within the “scope of practice” that the certifying body has defined.
Here are 5 important things to know about the practice of personal training and what the service offers and how it must be provided to operate within the scope of practice.
Educate: Personal trainers educate the general public and their clients about the important of staying active, ways to stay active, proper exercise techniques, nutrition, and lifestyle choices to support their overall fitness journey.
Assess Clients Wellness Levels: Personal trainers assess your current fitness levels, health status, and goals. Based on this information, they create a customized workout plan, which may include various types of exercises, such as cardio, strength training, flexibility exercises, and more.
Design & Implement Personalized Program: Personal Trainers design and implement personalized workout programs and provide guidance to help you achieve your fitness goals. These goals can vary widely and may include weight loss, muscle building, improved athletic performance, increased flexibility, or general health and wellness.
Offer Motivation & Encouragement: Personal trainers often act as motivators, offering support and encouragement to help clients stay focused and committed to their fitness goals. They may track progress, make adjustments to the workout plan as needed, and provide ongoing feedback and accountability.
Offer Training Anywhere: Personal trainers can work in various settings, including gyms, fitness studios, health clubs, corporate wellness programs, or as independent contractors, offering one-on-one sessions or group training sessions.
This should provide you with enough information to help you decide if you need a personal trainer and what to expect when you speak to him or her.
Be well and remember – Fitness works better for you when you work with a professional.
