Standards of Care For Personal Trainers
Updated: Sep 10, 2021
Too many times do you go seeking a trainer and they are brand new with no experience charging an arm and a leg.
Or they beat you up and expect you to pay for that. Or worse you do and you're unhappy with the training because they throw you on a machine, not explaining exactly why they are choosing a certain exercise for you or you get injured!
The healthcare industry is broken and trainers are at the forefront of healthcare and we need a high standard of care. We're here to help people get (scientifically verified) results. The personal training industry needs to do better! We need better education and mentoring/internships. And that's what Vida Fit provides.
For internships you must DO! (not just sit down and study)
Say the principle, do the principle. I.e Progressive overload, time under tension, instability/base of support.
Write 10 programs
Take 10 people through a workout

Secondary mastery: rotation + power moves, the 20-30 other main moves
Tertiary mastery: accessory moves, creativity.
