What are the main duties of a Personal Trainer?

We’ve picked out our top five key duties in order to becoming the best Personal Trainer you can be:

  • Fitness knowledge - you’ll need to be clued up on exercise practise, nutrition and the how the human body works. All of this and much more will be covered during our Personal Training courses.

  • The ability to educate and motivate - it will be your duty to teach and help your clients achieve their fitness goals which will vary from person to person.

  • Be your own boss! - although you may be employed by a gym or fitness centre, most Personal Trainers are self-employed. This means you’ll have to use your own initiative when setting your client’s fitness plans and goals.

  • Safety first - as a Personal Trainer it is your responsibility to ensure your clients are safe during their fitness regimes. All the correct safety procedures will be taught on The Training Room’s Personal Training courses.
