Personal Trainer Role Profile
Our personal trainer role profile outlines what is expected of you to teach and help people to exercise correctly. Your role is to educate, motivate, plan and coach your client to help them get the best from their workouts and exercise plans (which are bespoke to each client).
We have put a basic personal trainer role profile below, but every centre and club will be different.
A personal trainer usually has hourly sessions during which clients are helped with their workouts, whether using weights, cv machines or dong aerobics, walking or flexibility training. During the workout, trainer's monitor and record client's progress using methods such as body fat testing and heart rate levels. This enables you to give advice about lifestyle changes and more general information about health and nutrition.
Your job prospects as a trainer range from working in health clubs for chains such as Holmes Place, LA Fitness and Fitness First through to spas, resorts and cruise ships. Corporate fitness and wellbeing is also growing rapidly and many trainers work for companies providing workplace wellness programs. Of course, what appeals to most people is the chance to set up your own business as a personal fitness trainer.
