As a personal trainer in the UK, it’s not enough just to have a personal training qualification. You need something more. You need that ‘X Factor’. This is something that sets you apart from every other personal trainer out there. It shows that you are the best of the best and only choice for people who want to engage a personal trainer. To develop this X Factor, there are a number of pointers in terms of personal trainer professionality that you need to stick to when you’re in the gym.
WATCH YOUR OWN CLIENTS LIKE A HAWK
To be a successful personal trainer in the UK, you need to take care of your own clients as a priority. This means that while they are in session with you, you need to be watching their every move so that you can correct their form if necessary and encourage them during that last rep. Also, if other people see how you train your clients, and they are impressed by what you do, you’ll be at the top of their minds when it comes time for them to engage a personal trainer.
To help you achieve this, you need an accredited personal training qualification, like those on offer at Trifocus Fitness Academy UK. We offer the Level 3 Certificate In Personal Training as well as the Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training:
- The Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training teaches students the fundamentals – such as anatomy, physiology and how to design an exercise programme for personal training clients – that they need to be successful in their personal training career.
- The Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training takes your personal training career to the next level by building on the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training with more advanced modules. It’s also accredited by the YMCA Awards and is endorsed by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS).
PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS
As a personal trainer, you’re a walking billboard for your services. So, if you’re well-toned and take care of your body people will be more inclined to take advantage of your services as opposed to a personal trainer who is out of shape. This is because they’ll be more inclined to believe that you know what you’re talking about because you implement – what you teach others – for yourself.
