So you are thinking of becoming a Personal Trainer, however, you are unsure of what is expected of you? Well, first things first congratulations! Secondly, we know it’s a daunting process but the first thing you need to be aware of is what are the duties and responsibilities of a Personal Trainer.
In the world of personal training, each Personal Trainer has their own unique approach as to how they do things, whether it be their take on nutrition to preferred exercises for a fitness goal. Although a great deal of flexibility and creativity can be practiced by a Personal Trainer, the role itself starts with a set of core duties and responsibilities a Personal Trainer must possess and practice.
The duties and responsibilities of a Personal Trainer can range from having in-depth knowledge of nutrition and wider fitness to leading by example with their clients.
Although the duties and responsibilities expected from a Personal Trainer have developed over time, having in-depth knowledge of fitness is an integral responsibility of a Personal Trainer. As a Personal Trainer, you will need to be passionate about fitness, a passion that is accompanied by a scientific approach to your work. As a result of this scientific approach being highly expected in personal training, a key duty and responsibility of a Personal Trainer is to be able to design measurable and manageable programs for clients that are tailored to the needs of the client.
More importantly, on an interpersonal level, a key duty and responsibility of a Personal Trainer is to be able to explain and detail the process of their work to a client. This particular duty is important for a Personal Trainer to have for the safety of their client so that they are to undertake all exercises in a safe manner.
Similarly, due to the fact that Personal Trainers are expected to inspire change in people, another important duty and responsibility of a Personal Trainer is to motivate clients toward achieving their fitness goal, whether that be an end result such as preparing for a 5k run or simply developing an active lifestyle.
