A Personal Trainer is certified in fitness and exercise prescription and instruction. They help people with their fitness program and are driven by assisting people to reach fitness goals. A personal trainer will design individual and group exercise programs, they will allocate and supervise exercises, making the appropriate corrections and modifications, and typically look after their clients from week to week. A personal trainer is trained to train bodies.
A Fitness Coach’s responsibility is far more comprehensive, long term, interesting and involved. Like a Personal Trainer, they help clients with their exercises and technique; but they also give clients all the support, guidance and motivation they need to keep them on track. The results are much more than just a body trained to reach physical fitness. A great fitness coach will guide their clients through a journey of health, mental fitness and physical fitness. This is achieved through advanced fitness assessments, fitness programming, nutrition planning and continued advice aimed at supporting their clients through their different life stages.
Fitness Coaches work on changing a life. They’ll guide a transformation, not only of a person’s body; but also their habits, their mindset and their attitude, to achieve results that will last in the long term.
