The title of Personal Trainer is given to any person that has completed the required courses necessary to hold the title. This will include exercise science, kinesiology, nutrition, fitness assessments and program design along with several other important courses of study. After this you must be tested and certified by an accredited certifying organization, such as the American College of Sport Medicine (ACSM) or the American Council on Exercise (ACE) or the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). This certification ensures they you 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.
Every certified personal trainer must then complete a required number of credits to renew their certification every 24 months. If this requirement is not completed, you can no longer practice as your certification will expire and, in some cases, you must retest to regain you certification.
As you see there is a requirement to hold the title of personal trainer and the longer you practice the deeper, you’re understanding as you apply the science of exercise in you practice.
Any personal trainer with 10 or more years in practice brings a lot of knowledge and experience to your training. This is very important and meaningful for the success of your fitness journey.
Here are 5 important things to know about the practice of personal training. Also, 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.
