Every Personal Trainer Needs to have a Solid Knowledge of Nutrition
Benefit from a sound understanding of nutrition requirements. Help clients to reach their potential or nurture a more intimate relationship with your own dietary requirements.
Shahla Wunderlich at the Department of Health and Nutrition Sciences, Montclair State Univeristy, USA, agrees. She says that this is especially true for older adults:
“As the population of older adults continues to increase, there is even more urgency to establish nutrition assessment standards to evaluate the nutritional status of this vulnerable population, and to provide appropriate nutrition education and intervention.
“There is a high prevalence of undernutrition among seniors, and the cases of insufficient energy or micro and macronutrients are alarming. Unfortunately, this nutritional state is often misdiagnosed because of inappropriate assessment. The nutrition diagnosis needs to be accurate in order to provide effective intervention.
“The nutrition assessment of older people is sometimes challenging because older adults are often dealing with chronic medical conditions that require multiple pharmaceuticals for therapy. Therefore, drug-nutrient interactions are a prime concern among this population group.”
Trifocus Fitness Academy’s Specialised Nutrition Course will not only give you a sound understanding of nutrition plans, which you can design for a variety of nutrition needs, but will also give you insight into legal and illegal substances surrounding performance enhancement.
Every Personal Trainer Needs to Know About Core Strength

Aerobics: A Great Place to Start for Any Personal Trainer
There will always be a need for community-based, or group, exercise classes that focus on aerobic and development. Let your clients benefit from the motivation and competition generated by group aerobic classes that are professionally conducted thanks to plenty of training and experience. A form of aerobics, says Dan Harriman, that comes highly recommended is dance aerobics:
“Dance aerobics is generally a high-energy workout that aims to improve your cardiovascular endurance. Workouts are typically set to fast-paced music that determines the pace and rhythm of your movements. This approach to exercise helps optimize the amount of calories you burn by keeping your heart rate elevated throughout a session.”
Become the centre piece of your group fitness class. Empower yourself to motivate others with the aerobics courses that will make spreading the joy of health a professional reality.
