My First Year as a Personal Trainer

There’s no doubt about it starting a new career can be a daunting prospect. And as much as we’d like to get off to the perfect start, alongside the highs, there are bound to be a few bumps in the road.

But as someone once said, “Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.” With that in mind, we asked Amanda Atkinson, Health & Fitness Tutor at the Training Room with over 15 years’ experience in the fitness industry, to take a trip down memory lane and tell us what went well (and not so well) in her first year of being a personal trainer!

How personal trainers can support their clients’ mental health

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. What’s more, our own research showed that the number of people seeking the advice and support of personal trainers (PTs) to help manage mental health issues is increasing, with over 55% of the PTs we questioned reporting that they’re seeing more and more clients approach them with mental health concerns and worries.
