Course Description

A personal fitness trainer also known as PFT is a health and fitness care professional who works in and around the fitness industry providing guidance and instruction in the proper use of exercise equipment and the physical body to achieve various goals in improving fitness levels, body weight, strength and endurance using certain methods.

Personal fitness training is often a private interaction between client and fitness trainer on a one to one basis over a period of time and involves a bond between client and trainer ultimately leading to the desired result of a goal such as the shedding of weight, building of muscle, body toning, fitness levels and stamina.

A fitness trainer will discuss the client’s requirements and put together a specific tailored training plan which will be implemented over a period of sessions, adding and removing strategies and exercises to reach the end goal.

Reassurance and guidance on the correct exercise or technique in the safe way without any risk of harm or injury is part of the work of a PFT.

Each session safely pushes the client to a new level of intensity which is appropriate for that client’s condition including levels of fitness and health condition.

Training sessions often last round an hour and involve warming up and warming down at the end of the session including various stretching techniques.

Along with physical activities is also good dietary advice and guidance and may involve a food diary or even lifestyle coaching to bring you into a healthier place both physically, dietary and mentally.

With a new personal fitness training lifestyle there is no need to go on crash diets or cut out carbohydrates as this is completely unnecessary as long as you train hard for at least one hour a day, your body will need plenty of good carbohydrates and good calories, on average between 2,000 2,500 per day working down to possibly 1800 a day.

Any less than this is too little if you are in training. In other words as long as your training you actually need to eat more to burn off fat and the food you eat must be correct food the body demands.

Taking up fitness training or going to fitness training sessions can be life changing and an amazing buzz.

With continued effort, hard work and determination you can achieve a wonderful toned body.

Personal fitness training is an amazing profession to get into, not only for physical appearance reasons, aesthetics, body image but also from a mental health and well being reason without all the ills and sluggishness that lack of training and bad diet brings.

This personal fitness trainer course is ideal for anyone wishing to pursue an interest or future career in personal fitness training to provide guidance and instruction to either a group or on a one to one basis.

Many areas in personal fitness training are covered in this program. As a personal fitness instructor you may be required to create and design a fitness plan for the needs of each client you may work with. A PFT is often the tutor, coach, motivator, diet and nutritional adviser to the client.

This course is open to anyone with or without any background training.
