Your Personal Trainer May HURT You…

So, I hear this or a variation of this ALL THE TIME…

I got hurt after trying an exercise my personal trainer made me do.

I don’t understand WHY people who get hurt by personal trainers do not sue them. The carelessness would eventually stop if the law suits started.

Trainers are trying to call everyone an athlete and train them as if they are competitive athletes. The average adult looking for general fitness or weight loss is NOT a competitive athlete. The average person who has not competed in a sport on a high level in recent months or years SHOULD NOT be doing advanced exercises such as box jumps, burpees, or sled pushes among other exercises on day one.

It’s unbelievable how many personal trainers hurt people because they are feeding their egos or they have very little experience. Many just pay for and take an online exam without any real-world preparation or exercise experience and call themselves trainers. It’s SAD and the general public is paying for it.

web-business-card-back-mar2Now do you know WHY I am so proud to be an NSCA-CSCS? We know how to train athletes and when to hold back while helping an adult become more fit. We understand the SCIENCE behind the exercise and we know exercise progression. A college degree is required to take the exam and you are given (and need) six months to study all the material. It is a serious certification and it must be maintained with continuing education once certified.

DO NOT trust just anyone to train you. Do your research, get referrals, and check the trainer’s credentials. Many people come to me AFTER they have been seriously damaged by personal trainers. It’s your body, your money, and your time that will be spent by going to the wrong trainer. Please CHOOSE WISELY!!!
