    Role of a professional personal trainer:

    Sometimes it takes a paid professional to slog you through endless squats, push-ups and burpees, or just to get you to the gym at 6 a.m. You can thank your personal trainer for that.

    As a professional trainer, you’ll work one-on-one with clients to assess their current health status with a health history evaluation. Based on those results, you will design an exercise program to improve their overall health. You will also motivate, educate and give them direction to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Our accredited education covers proper technique, general health, anatomy and physiology and nutrition consultation.

    In 2021, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) stated that personal trainers currently serve as the primary profession within the fitness industry. The DOL went on to define the role of personal trainers as:

    • Working with a single client or small group fitness class
    • Training within a gym, on-line training or in-home services
    • Assessing client levels of physical fitness and helping set and reach fitness goals
    • Demonstrating various exercises and helping clients improve their exercise techniques
    • Maintaining records of clients’ exercise sessions to monitor clients’ progress toward physical fitness
    • Advising clients on how to modify their lifestyles outside of the gym to improve fitness
