Demystifying the Trainer


Are personal trainers for celebrities and wealthy people only?

A personal trainer can be a good match for those seeking to improve their physical fitness. While some of my clients include Oscar winners, celebrities, professional athletes and fortune 500 CEO’s, I also train teachers, students, police officers, and personal trainers new to the industry. Access to quality health and fitness should be available to everyone regardless of occupation and income.

What kind of education does a personal trainer have?

Some possess a Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology while others opt for an online certification course, and there are a lot in between. It is difficult for the average person to tell whether or not a trainer is legitimate. At a very basic level, a personal trainer should have a current certification from an accredited organization. The most highly regarded ones in the fitness industry are , NASM, NSCA, ISSA and ACSM.

The top five benefits of having an in-home personal trainer are:

  1. Time efficient. An in-home trainer can be ideal for clients with limited availability or access to a gym.
  2. Accessible. Working out in a gym can be an intimidating experience on various levels. Home training allows a person to create the atmosphere that they want without any of the fear or potential lack of fitness and equipment knowledge associated with a gym.
  3. Foolproof. Home training takes the guesswork out of working out. Sometimes simply working out isn’t enough for someone to reach their goals. This leads to frustration which is exacerbated by all of the conflicting information. A personal trainer customizes fitness and lifestyle plans that target specific goals
  4. Interactive/ personal. Due to the limited equipment available in a gym, a good in-home trainer has to be creative and innovative when it comes to putting together fitness regimens. This usually leads to much more dynamic exercises and workouts than a person would find in a gym. The downside of having all of the equipment in a gym is a tendency to rely on the equipment whereas an in-home trainer has to rely on imagination and client personality.
  5. Accountability. When working out at a gym, it is very easy for a person to simply skip out on any given day. Whether its work, family related or just plain being lazy, it’s very easy to not go to the gym. It’s hard to get out of a session when the trainer is at the door ready to start working. This is important on those days where a person just doesn’t have the motivation or the energy to start.
