Your Personal Trainer May HURT You…

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

I got hurt after trying an exercise that my personal trainer made me do. I had trouble doing an exercise and they kept telling me to keep going. I was being rushed through an exercise.

I really do not understand WHY people who get hurt by personal trainers do not stop training with them immediately and sue them. The carelessness would eventually stop if the lawsuits started to be filed.

Some personal fitness trainers are trying to call everyone an athlete and train them as if they are really competitive athletes. The average adult looking for general fitness or weight loss is NOT a competitive athlete and should not be trained as if they are 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. There are specific progressions and fitness levels that must be mastered before the advanced exercises are introduced. That is like telling a person who never drove to compete in a NASCAR race.

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

Now, do you know WHY I am so proud to be an NSCA-CSCS? We know how to train athletes and we know 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 CSCS exam and you are given (and need) six months to study all of the material. It is a serious certification and it must be maintained with continuing education once certified.

Please 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!!!

School Lunches, Most are Gross!

appleIt is truly horrible… They just showed a NYC school lunch on tv… Not one fruit or vegetable. It’s so sad they will not make the lunches more healthy. And it probably would not cost any more than that crap.

Young kids DO like fruit and vegetables. I have seen kids share and enjoy healthy foods, including those kids whose parents claim their kid will not eat anything healthy. The parents are often shocked their child enjoyed something healthy.

It is a moment of sharing healthy foods between kids that can change some family’s eating habits for the better. Kids are often willing to try new foods they see their friends eating and enjoying. And they often enjoy that new food too! Unfortunately, it is the ADULTS that claim kids do not want to eat better simply because the adult does not enjoy healthy foods.

Please give your kids fruits and veggies at home every day, it will pay off in the long run.

Enjoy your fall season… And let me know how I can help your kids…
