What certification should personal trainers come with?
Many personal trainers have no more than beginner level fitness instructor certificates which are not adequate, especially when working with specific problems like sports injuries, back pain, cardiac rehabilitation, pregnancy or diabetes. Therefore advanced personal trainer qualifications or a university degree in conjunction with a First Aid and CPR qualification is strongly advised. Around three quarters of personal trainers are not properly qualified. View the relationship as an investment in your well being. It is encouraged that you ask to see qualifications and areas of expertise to be explained to you and to ensure that your trainer has professional indemnity and public liability insurance.
What kind of service should I expect?
You will be asked about your health and medical background and why you want a trainer, where and how often, and the kind of training you are after e.g. aerobics, weight training, a running partner, aqua training. You will be asked to complete a lifestyle questionnaire detailing medical history, dietary habits and the level of exercise you are accustomed to.
Motivation and Advice...
Subsequently, your Personal Trainer will work with you on an hourly basis, bringing all the necessary fitness equipment and making sure the programme is correctly implemented, whilst offering additional motivation and advice.
Adapting and Improving...
Your Personal Training Programme is constantly evolved to avoid you reaching a physical and mental plateau, so your body keeps on adapting and therefore improving.
