Personal Training - The future

Door: Pete Cohen

Prijs: Gratis

Personal training has a great future. At the moment it is a generic name for a set of activities. Call it a container term, because almost everything fits inside. The broad character of personal training has advantages, disadvantages, beauties and flaws. The pluralism of this term and this discipline offers room to various angles and shapes. There is enough to choose from. However, this versatility also creates obscurities, confusion and can lead to disappointments for the customers. An example of a description of a personal trainer is: a fitness professional involved in developing and implementing an individualized approach to exercise leadership in healthy populations and/or those individuals with medical clearance to exercise. Using a variety of teaching techniques, the personal trainer is proficient in leading and demonstrating safe and effective methods of exercise by applying the fundamental principles of exercise science. The personal trainer is proficient in writing appropriate exercise recommendations, leading and demonstrating safe and effective methods of exercise, and motivating individuals to begin and to continue with their healthy behaviours (ACSM).

On Wikipedia, personal training is described as follows: a personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in prescription of exercise and instruction. They motivate clients by setting goals and providing feedback and accountability to clients. Personal trainers also measure their client's strengths and weaknesses with fitness assessments. These fitness assessments may also be performed before and after an exercise program to measure their client's improvements in physical fitness. They may also educate their clients in many other aspects of wellness besides exercise, including general health and nutrition guidelines. Qualified personal trainers recognize their own areas of expertise. If a personal trainer suspects that one of his or her clients has a medical condition that could prevent the client from safe participation in an exercise program, they must refer the client to the proper health professional for prior clearance.

These are all existing ideas on personal training. But what about the future? This is the key note presentation of Pete Cohen at the LAPT mega quarterly in Veldhoven.
