In what do personal trainers do part 1, I talked about what our role is and what is our scope of practice. In part 2, I wanted to get the opinions of people. What do people think a personal trainers job is? I asked my Facebook friends to answer this question and am very thankful for the time spent in helping me out with this project. Here is the question:
Have you ever asked the question, what can a personal trainer do for me and why should I hire one? What do personal trainers do?
Today’s guest blog is with physical therapist Bill Jones. Bill has been a physical therapist for 20 plus years and is still going strong! He understands the value in exercise especially with the older adult population. He has a unique perspective on movement that I wanted to share with everyone. When it comes to injuries and pain, Bill is no stranger to it and will tell you why it shouldn’t keep you from moving. After watching Bills response on video or reading our interview, you should come away with some reasons why you should start to move more and challenge the notion you are too “old” !
Tired of feeling “old” and not being able to do the activities you did in your 20’s? Want to be in better shape and feel better about your body? If you want to maintain independence, have fun, stay strong and keep moving keep reading till the end. The answer will reveal itself, but let me make the case and give examples for why you should do the perfect workout.
Growing old is a fact of life. I was contemplating why I never see many fitness programs for senior citizens. We have a generation of baby boomers who are independent and want to stay that way. Far too often we find a lack of information being given to senior citizens why exercise is essential to maintain independence. Question is why we don’t cater our services to this population? Do older adults not value living with less chronic diseases?
To help answer some of these questions we have fitness expert Greg Mikolap to give us some insights about training senior citizens. Greg has the same questions as I do and understands why older adults need exercise. He has been a fitness professional for over a decade and has seen the value in senior citizens who regularly exercise. He is so passionate about this issue he has a course designed for trainers because he knows more trainers need to understand the needs of this population.

Looking for a personal trainer but don’t know where to start? Good thing you are reading this blog, because I probably just saved you a lot of wasted time and money. Personal training can be expensive or sometimes you’ve had a bad experience in the past. These 3 rules should help you find someone who is professional and that fits your needs.
Nutrition Trends are doing more harm than good for many Americans. Promising quick fixes for weight loss and optimal health, we all see the appeal. Every couple of years there are diets that promise us the world, but hardly if ever deliver the optimal health and weight loss that is promised long term.
The problem is the weight loss and diet industry that has confused many Americans. They understand health and weight loss is a very emotional and intimate subject for us all, and they capitalize on our fears in the tune of billions of dollars. Once you understand why nutrition trends have you running in circles, you can then make the beginning changes that are necessary to stop the cycle.
