Biggera Waters Women’s Personal Trainer Reveals the Truth Behind the ‘Uneducated’ Fitness Industry
QUEENSLAND, Australia December 2013 – Today, the Internet has made it very easy for anyone to find a personal fitness trainer offering extremely low prices as they try to stay competitive in an oversaturated market which seems to be birthing new personal trainers every minute. What most people seeking some support with exercise and nutrition don’t know is that it’s easy to for someone to obtain a ‘certificate’ in a few short months and say they’re a qualified professional, but they don’t really understand the body and can cause their clients injury by creating and supervising workouts without the proper knowledge.
Biggera Waters women’s personal trainer and ‘Super Gran’ of Fitness Lyn Collett weighs into this subject as she speaks out about the ‘uneducated’ fitness industry. The owner of a women’s gym in Biggera Waters, Curves Ladies Only Fitness, Lyn says, “When fitness training became a 12-week course, the industry started getting a bad name, more injuries, and less results simply because some - but not all - of the people trained at these short courses were there for the wrong reasons. Many of them saw it as a way of boosting their own self-esteem and making some money instead of being there for the clients. Plus, the structure of the course made it easy for anyone to do as little as possible of the course and get qualified quickly so they don’t learn much. When you get that combination in this industry you’re asking for trouble.” www.lifeskilltraining.com.au/
Lyn says, “I have had first-hand experience with this in two ways. Firstly, as a trainer working in a fitness centre, I was in charge of looking after the students when they came in for their work experience. And without quoting any one of the stories I have from that time, it was very easy to see the lack of knowledge amongst these new trainers. Secondly, when I needed to hire trainers for my own Biggera Waters women’s gym – it was a nightmare! I had trainers saying how wonderful they were and how this is the area they really wanted to be involved in, only to find out they were on medication for depression themselves and just didn’t bother turning up for sessions, and disappointing the clients.” www.lifeskilltraining.com.au/
Lyn says, “One reason I went from being a Biggera Waters women’s personal trainer to also training the personal trainers myself was to help up and coming trainers with all the information and knowledge I had to share. It was getting too scary with all the trainers that have limited knowledge getting around thinking they know it all.”
