Personal trainers help their clients achieve their personal health and fitness goals.
To become a personal trainer you would first need to be a fitness instructor with a high level of experience and advanced qualifications.
You will also need good 'people' skills and an outgoing, friendly personality. Knowledge of the way the body works is important too.
As a personal trainer, you would first talk to clients to find out about their fitness level and health history. Following the initial assessment realistic short and long-term goals need to be set along with some nutrition and life style advice. During workouts it is your job to motivate and monitor health and safety with the client.
English and maths skills will be put to use when creating reports and analysis of the client's performance.
