WHAT is a Personal Trainer?

A personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in exercise prescription and instruction.
Qualified personal trainers recognise their own areas of expertise. If a trainer suspects that one of his or her clients has a medical condition that could prevent the client from safe participation in an exercise program, they must refer the client to the proper health professional (such as a Biokineticist, Dietician, Physiotherapist or Doctor).

WHAT does a Personal Trainer do?

The scope of practice for a personal trainer is to enhance the components of fitness for the general, healthy population.
Proper exercise prescription may result in improved body composition, physical performance and health outcomes.A trainer pays close attention to their client’s exercise form, workout routine, and nutrition plan.
Personal Trainers motivate clients by setting goals and providing feedback and accountability to clients. Trainers also measure their client’s strengths and weaknesses with fitness assessments. These fitness assessments may also be performed before and after an exercise program to measure their client’s improvements in physical fitness. They may also educate their clients in many other aspects of wellness besides exercise, including general health and nutrition guidelines.
