Exercise training programs are often based largely on past experiences of those designing them. Although experience is always an important quality to have in any field, including personal training, it is not the only nor, in some cases, even the most important qualification to have. Designing safe and effective exercise training programs requires a variety of skills, including knowledge gained through education, personal interest in exercise, the ability to communicate effectively with clients, and experience in working with other more experienced trainers, as well as past experiences.
Personal trainers need to develop the right blend of exercise training knowledge, experience, and skills to be competent at designing integrated training programs for a variety of clients. Program design means putting together a purposeful system or plan to achieve a specific goal. The purpose of a training program is to provide a pathway to help clients achieve their health and fitness goals.
This one of my projects that I am working on. I plan on being the fitness guru of Personal Training through practice, training experience, and through education.
