What Does Being a Personal Trainer Entail?


Becoming a Personal Trainer allows you to completely transform your life and make a career out of something you truly love; fitness. Becoming a Personal Trainer can also help you to change not only your life for the better, but many other people’s lives, as you help them meet their fitness goals.

Working as a PT will present you with a whole number of different Personal Trainer roles and responsibilities. Firstly, it requires you to teach and help people exercise properly, alongside planning, motivating, educating and coaching your client on everything from workouts to exercise plans; which will change from client to client.

If you think being a Gym Instructor or Fitness Instructor is the same as being a Personal Trainer, think again, as there are a number of differences between the two roles. Personal Trainers have more fitness qualifications than Gym Instructors, and can therefore with the role of a Personal Trainer you can provide people with tailored Health and Fitness advice.

With so much to know, and being able to adapt yourself to each person you train, finding the right Personal Training course is of extreme importance to both you, and future clients.

Here at The Training Room we provide a variety of flexible Personal Training courses, which are designed to suit you; so you can gain your Personal Training certification and begin your life changing career.

What Personal Training Entails?

Firstly, it is important to note that the majority of Personal Trainers are self-employed, so you’ll end up becoming your own boss.

When it comes to the job role itself, Personal Trainers are expected to create a one-on-one fitness programme for their clients, which can help promote realistic health and fitness goals, to help them achieve their intended goals.

Alongside the plan, Personal Trainers conduct one-on-one sessions with their clients where they help them meet their goals. This can be anything from losing weight to gaining muscle, and conducted through everything from doing aerobics, using machines, walking or using weights, amongst many other processes. You’ll also need to help your clients through their workouts during the session, providing them with all the vital information they require to use the machinery.

Alongside this it’s important to ensure your clients follow their health plans that you assign for them, so they can reach their goals.

What You Need to be a Personal Trainer?

To be a Personal Trainer, you need a minimum Level 3 Certificate, which you can obtain at The Training Room through one of our Personal Training courses.

This will put you in the ideal position to deal with a whole range of clients, and effectively address their specific needs and requirements, and help them reach their intended fitness and health goals.

However, alongside this, one thing a personal trainer can do to ensure they have the best knowledge possible, to help both them and their clients, is to keep learning. This can be done through a number of optional modules, where you can learn and develop extra skills sets, which can then be added to your repertoire, allowing you to expand the types of fitness training you provide, and in turn expand your client base.
