University and tertiary education is no longer the be all and end all when it comes to being an industry leader. A qualification does not guarantee expertise, and experience is becoming much more valuable across all sectors.
Perhaps you are a personal trainer. You completed the basic courses to become certified and now you take short courses to keep your certification.
Constant learning is key, but more importantly, it’s important to understand who you are learning from, and whether they are teaching you quality content that has seen proven results. Why would you want to learn from a personal trainer or educator who does not walk the walk or has no experience? There are many courses available that are certified, but are you getting your money’s worth? At the end of the day, finding a quality company or educator with a wealth of knowledge and experience is worth the extra research, when you consider the impact on your own training, your business, and your client’s wellbeing.
Perhaps you are a client. You never knew that your personal trainer spends thousands of dollars every year to remain qualified and keep up with current research to ensure your progress and success.
Invest in a personal trainer who will invest in themselves. A winning bodybuilding competitor is not always going to know more or know how to apply knowledge more. Having said that, it is important to find someone who has applied and understands their own training methods. When finding someone who you trust with your health and fitness goals, you should be confident that they have had results with their clients and want the same for you. It may also be worthwhile educating yourself so that you have a solid foundation to keep you on track. There are plenty of courses available for the general population, and may even give you a foot in the door of the fitness industry…
Entry level personal training courses teach basic fitness instruction. If you want to go beyond and have a deeper understanding, studying exercise, nutrition, psychology, health, and business from industry leaders is key. If you are looking for courses in 2018, Australian Strength Performance has released the dates for the next few months of courses worldwide, and we are excited to be speaking at many conferences this year.
