A personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in exercise prescription and instruction. They motivate clients by setting goals and providing feedback and accountability to clients.
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
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 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.
Proper exercise prescription may result in improved body composition, physical performance, heart condition and
health outcomes. The decision to hire a personal trainer may be related to a perceived ability to facilitate these factors through proper prescription and instruction or factors related to
and adherence. A personal trainer will pay close attention to their client's
exercise form, workout routine, and nutrition plan.
Personal trainers may specialize in a certain training type, training philosophy, performance type, exercise modality, or client population. In general, most personal trainers develop exercise prescription plans for aerobic exercise, resistance exercise, and/or flexibility training.
With aerobic exercise prescription, personal trainers determine the type of exercise, duration of exercise, and frequency of exercise.
For resistance exercise prescription, the type of exercise, total session volume, rest period, frequency, and intensity are determined.
Personal trainers may also be involved in prescription of stretching routines or other approaches.
With aerobic exercise a comprehensive fitness program tailored to an individual will probably focus on one or more specific skills, and on age or health-related needs such as bone health.
Many sources also cite mental, social and emotional health as an important part of overall fitness. This is often presented in textbooksas a triangle made up of three points, which represent physical, emotional, and mental fitness.
Physical fitness can also prevent or treat many chronic health conditions brought on by unhealthy lifestyle or aging. Working out can also help people sleep better. To stay healthy it is important to engage in physical activity.
