Class details

When working as a personal trainer you’ll be at a more advanced level than those working as a fitness instructor; as you’ll be trained to level 4. It’s also worth noting that those who become fitness instructors, often train and advance to being personal trainers.


It is now widely accepted that simply doing more exercise and physical activity is not the answer to all of our health and fitness problems and dreams. Whether it’s weight loss, muscle building or sports performance, correct training is just one part of the equation. In other words, even if people are given a good exercise program to follow, chances are they won’t see the results they want. It’s the job of a Personal Trainer to address that. They should provide the complete package to help coach their clients to reach their goals, doing whatever it takes to achieve that safely and effectively. So what else is required? First and foremost, effective nutrition. You’re probably familiar with the various statistics and quotes: ‘what you eat accounts for 80% of your results’, ‘you can’t out train a bad diet’, ‘abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym’. The importance of eating the right foods for your body is paramount and this should often be the first area to look at whatever your goal – get healthier from the inside out. So PTs need sound nutritional knowledge.
