What your trainer keeps doing to keep you reaching your goals!
Staying on top of trends, research and the industry
Fitness professionals are held to a very high standard and I too hold myself to a high standard especially when it comes to getting and STAYING certified. It's not enough to simply take a course, write and pass an exam. That's the beginning. You need to apply what you learned and KEEP learning and stay up to date and keep taking courses and workshops for your continuing education so you always stay sharp for your clients or group participants. They deserve to work with someone that has the right courses, certifications and memberships for their fitness offerings.
Every role in the fitness industry requires some type of training or a course or some sort of organized education and it has a scope of practice that is also to be honored, respected and followed. For example as a Personal Trainer I have a specific scope of practice that I follow and adhere to. It ensures the safety of everyone I work with and it is important to always keep that standard high. I always strive for excellence with every session every client every time.
I am committed to staying up to date and always learning to ensure I deliver the best service and product possible to my clients. Read below for more details.
