The Myths About Being a Personal Fitness Trainer  October 12, 2017 Admin

Personal training is big business these days and people worldwide are preparing themselves for a lucrative career in this segment. However, since it concerns your future career, you may have some inhibitions and queries as the industry also spawns a few myths and misconception.

So if you have any doubts regarding the common myths pervading the industry, it is best to clear them before joining personal training courses on the Costa Del Sol – Spain.

Trainers Workout All the Time

Personal trainers certainly have to maintain a well toned body but this does not mean they have to train all the time. In between working with clients and maintaining a regular personal life, a trainer hardly has the time to work out himself.

Personal trainer courses teach you how to squeeze in just the right amount of exercise required to stay fit. Coupled with a healthy and disciplined lifestyle and hours of working with clients, most trainers usually look in top shape most of the times.

Trainers work Only at Gyms

Gyms do have dedicated trainers but that does not mean as a personal trainer, you MUST work at your neighbourhood gym. Gyms usually provide newbies with a ready platform for reaching out to clients and testing their application skills post personal trainer courses.

There are several trainers successfully running their own outdoor bootcamps, indoor small group sessions at home or office, training individuals or athletes and so on. The choice is endless and you can select a sector you like.

All Trainers can Prepare Meal Plans

The truth is that all personal trainers can offer some general advice on eating healthy as per preset the guidelines. Only qualified nutritionists and dieticians can prescribe proper meal plans after studying the client’s requirements and present condition.

Trainers can Train Any Person

Remember that fitness training qualifies you to help the healthy population become more fit and active. It does not qualify you to deal with people with special problems such as obesity; backache; sports injury; post-surgical rehab; geriatric complications; cardiac ailments or other lifestyle disorders and so on.

Such specialized training is best left to experts OR you may do a niche specialization yourself. Such specializations can be done as added qualification after personal trainer courses and help you target customers with specific needs or goals.

Personal Trainers are Experts in Rehab

As mentioned earlier, fitness certifications do not qualify you to rehabilitate people post injury or surgery. But if you are passionate about this, you can do a niche on rehab training and also join up with physiotherapists and health professionals to learn more on the subject.

Such professionals can also help you hone your techniques further so as to provide the best service to such clients who require special approach and care.

Only Young People can Become Personal Trainers

This is far from truth as is evident from the diverse age group joining personal trainer courses. If you love exercising and helping others stay fit, you can become a trainer at any age. All it matters is your own fitness and confidence in handling your clients.

5 Reasons to Hire a Personal Trainer March 30, 2017 Admin

According to the 2011-12 Australian health survey, approximately 70% of Aussie Adults have poor levels of physical activity or an all-together sedentary lifestyle.  If you’re one among these 12 million, you’d do well to know that the perfect prescription for workout (as per the Australian physical activity guidelines) is

2.5 – 5 hours of moderately intense exercise (or 1.25 – 2.5 hours of highly intense workout) per week.

Strength training on at least 2 days out of 7.

Yoga or stretching on recovery days.

While you may exercise alone at home, nothing can beat a gym session under an informed personal trainer. His experience as fitness professional and over a decade of online fitness coaching allows him to tailor the exercise program to suit your health conditions, persona and eagerness for improvement.

Still not convinced? Take a look at the benefits sustained gym activity gives you.

Puts a cap on BMI

A high BMI inflates your chances of becoming a diabetic, having a heart attack or (/and!) being afflicted with cancer. It’s no surprise then, that excessive body weight is the second highest contributor to disease in Australia.

Both cardio and weightlifting speed up metabolism, lead to higher calorie-burn and build you a lean, fat-free, healthy body.  In fact, anaerobic workout is proven to reverse aging-induced loss of muscle mass and strength.

Boosts heart and lung function

Endurance training strengthens your heart, widens its arteries and eases up blood flow. This apart, it also attacks the cholesterol and plaque deposits in your arterial walls and alleviates hypertension.

Periodic aerobic exertion enhance your ability to draw oxygen from the atmosphere, make your breathing more effective and add to lung volume.

Dan Clay, a Gold Coast personal trainer believes 80% of your results are due to diet, with the remaining 20% due to exercise.


Regulates blood-sugar

Recent years have seen more and more Aussies turning diabetic, with 280 persons being the yearly addition to the pre-existing pool.

When combined with a low-sugar diet, periodic HIIT helps your body effectively use insulin to reduce your blood-glucose levels.

Improves memory and sleep

Continuous physical training activates brain cells which, in turn, endow you with a better memory and a higher intellect. Naturally, your risk of getting old-age diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s is minimized.

Regular workouts ensure ideal working of your 24-hour body clock (AKA the sleep/wake cycle).  You, therefore, sleep well at night and stay active during the day.

Keeps you happy

Physical activity releases endorphins, the ‘happy’ chemicals, in your blood.  This not only elevates your mood during performance in the fitness centre but keeps it upbeat even hours there-after. A HIIT regime, in particular, makes you experience a narcotic ‘high’ and does a better job at keeping away the blues than your anti-depressant pill (sans side-effects!).

Habitual exercise also keeps in check the internal stressors,, adrenaline and cortisol; meaning, you don’t worry as much as you used to and, instead, focus on the positives in your life. Visit for a full library of fun and effective workout.

Hence, be sure to gift yourself good health under the expert guidance of a qualified personal trainer. You totally deserve it and much more!

Morocan Madness May 23, 2010 by Daisy Thomas (Surfer)

Hey People, Hope the season at home is going off! I have been holding off writing a blog as I have not yet uploaded any photos and as you can imagine Morocco does not have the fastest Internet time but I will give you a wee update now.

So I have started work with two weeks of Roxy Surf Weeks which has been crazy but really enjoyable, I am currently sitting very relaxed after a traditional Hammam and massage which consists of wearing paper underwear, getting scrubbed from head to toe and bathed. It is an incredible feeling and your skin comes out feeling the softest it has been since you were a wee tot. After two weeks of solid days in the sun, sand and ocean it was high time for a good relaxation.

It is interesting being a western woman in a Muslim country, at first I felt very vulnerable and out of my depth but as the days go by my surroundings are more familiar. There are not many women you see around the streets and when they are out and about they are covered from head to toe in their traditional jalabas and as you can imagine a western woman sticks out like a sore thumb but it has been nice covering up trying to fit into the culture.

The surf has not been amazing but its warm and I have been meeting some unreal people. Stay tuned for pics and more updates. Chur
