Personal Trainer Job Description
Many personal trainers work through personal training studios and health clubs, assisting clients within the facility. Others may be available for sessions in a client’s home, or serve as instructors for fitness classes. Personal Trainers are generally needed to demonstrate various exercises and help clients improve their exercise techniques. Due to the more interpersonal contact between a personal trainer and a client versus a general gym setting, a personal trainer is more readily able to provide motivation and support to an individual in an exercise program, in addition to proper technical instruction. A personal trainer can keep records of their clients’ exercise sessions to help monitor progress, and may also advise their clients on how to modify their lifestyle outside of the gym to improve their fitness. To set yourself up to gain employment in the fitness industry, employers are wanting an individual to be qualified with either a CYQ or Active IQ Personal Trainer qualification.
