What does a Personal Trainer do?

A certified personal trainer can accurately assess your current physical condition and based on that information plan an effective training program in the areas of fitness such as strength, speed, endurance and power. A personal trainer often works for individuals, typically working one-on-one as the name suggests. The exercise sessions take place at varied locations - at the client’s home, the trainer’s place of employment or business, or at a another fitness facility. A similarly trained strength and conditioning coach may be associated with a weight training gymnasium or sporting team, and is responsible for developing the physical side of the athletes.
