What Exactly Does a Trainer Do?
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 strengths and weaknesses. Based on those results, you will design an exercise program to improve their physical fitness. You will also motivate, educate and give them direction to pursue a healthy lifestyle. This education will also cover proper technique, general health and nutrition consultation.
In 2014, 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
- Training within a gym or in clients’ homes
- 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
What makes it Great?
With obesity rates on the rise, trainers are in a position to change someone’s health for the better—and for the long haul. They can also work in a variety of settings beyond the gym, from hospitals to corporate wellness departments, to clients’ homes, to outdoor boot camps.
Current Fitness Industry Overview
Despite the recession, the total number of gym memberships in the United States rose from 40.3 million in 2009 to 54.1 million in 2014, as Americans have become increasingly more interested in personal fitness, especially in light of worsening nationwide health trends. This heightened focus on fitness and wellness has enabled the field of personal training to thrive.
