Personal training / Fitness - A career as fitness trainers,Physical Therapist,Healthcare | Ethics in Personal Training | Scoop.it

“Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness,” a fact well expressed by the British statesman Edward Henry Stanley years ago holds great importance in our day-to-day life. As we all know prevention is better than cure, maintaining a healthy body and mind will be the best option to build immunity. Physical fitness training programs have been a part of the modern life. What about physical therapy programs? Both the personal training and physical therapy programs focus on designing some training sessions to improve the health of their clients.

 

The difference is that fitness trainers work with healthy people who want to control body weight or get a better shape. On the other hand, physical therapists have to guide the people who have dealt with some sort of illness or injury. Personal trainers and physical therapists work in two different ways with two different categories of people to attain same goal. ie, better fitness for their clients. If you are interested in a healthcare profession, then you can choose either the career of a personal trainer or of a physical therapist.

 

A career as fitness trainers demands certifications from different accredited certification organizations. Since there are different specialization options, requirements for certifications also vary. But initiating your career as a physical therapist requires long term education. According to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), ‘physical therapist is required to complete a graduate degree - either a masters or clinical doctorate - from an accredited education program. A growing majority of programs offer the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree’. Students can even specialize in some specific areas such as cardiovascular and pulmonary, clinical electrophysiology, geriatrics, neurology, orthopedics, pediatrics, sports and Women's Health. Soon after the completion of program, graduates can appear for the licensure examination.


If physical therapy follows a holistic approach, then reflexology is an alternative medical practice. While physical therapy and personal training programs focus on health fitness, reflexology helps the clients to relieve from stress. This art of natural healing helps in regenerating the human body. Principles of massage therapy and zone theory are combined in this physical act. So individuals who want to be the part of healthcare sector and help others to live a health life can go for these career options. So start your search today and step into a rewarding career.

Always check credentials, if it doesn't sound right, it's probably not.

Chris Perkins's curator insight, August 17, 2014 6:14 PM

Explaining what trainers do wrong is a great way to weed out the trainers with no ethics. One of the biggest parts of being a trainer is to cater to your client. Give them what they need not what you need. Focus solely on that client and what works for them. This is all a part of being an ethical trainer and following the code of ethics.

Have some integrity as a trainer. Don't just put stuff out there that you haven't tried yourself. Just because your friends are promoting it that doesn't mean that you have to promote it. Marketing yourself is huge in the trainer world so do it the right way and have some ethics when doing it.

Steven Moodie's curator insight, October 17, 2015 6:33 PM

This is a great overview about the basic responsibility for a personal trainer. Although it is general, one reading this should get that treating all clients equally, not only means not discriminating against physical appearance or life style, but also financial status. One should also charge the same amount for each service provided, no matter the client.
