Mobile Personal Training

Mobile Personal Training

Mobile Personal Training has been an attractive service for many years to people who aren’t keen to use traditional gym offerings, and offers Personal Trainers a potentially lower cost way of running a business along with more control over how you run it when compared to working in someone else’s gym environment or owning your own facility.

For the purposes of this course we are classifying ‘Mobile’ as anyone who either visits clients, has clients visit their home, or works from a community based location.

Chris Burgess will take you through how to market and generate leads for your mobile business, with a look into which people are better suited for the services you offer and how to target them.

Gregg Slater will take you through practical training and programming to ensure that you can run an incredibly high level service that is usually associated with needed flashy kit and facilities.

By the end of this course you will have knowledge and skills to grow and deliver a fantastic mobile personal training business on your terms that fits in with your life. 25 videos 2-20 mins long, total course length approx 4 hours (videos only, allow extra time for learning, note taking and application).

Working With Injured Clients

Working With Injured Clients

As personal trainers, it’s never our role to diagnose pain. However, when working
with the general population we will regularly encounter clients with aches,
pains and niggling injuries that require management and exercise modification.
Working alongside the relevant medical professional, this course is designed to
help you better understand modifiable principles such as volume, intensity, force
management and exercise modification to help your clients work around pain (where
possible) and continue to move towards their goals whilst staying within our scope
of practice. This course is not about rehabilitating clients post-injury, it’s about
understanding how we can help clients continue to exercise and do the things they
love in the presence of everyday aches and pains.
Not only will we explore these principles, but we have also provided you with a library
of POSSIBLY suitable exercises for clients with common aches, pains or injuries.
We should note there is rarely, if ever, a “best” exercise for pain management.
Sometimes exercises can be modified, and other times they may need to be removed
completely. It is therefore important to understand some of the underlying principles
before we select the appropriate methods (exercises) from the library.
Before undertaking this course please remember your first duty as a personal trainer
is to DO NO HARM. Pain is a complex topic and, to reiterate, your role as a trainer
is never to diagnose pain. If pain is persistent in a client do your due diligence and
refer out to a trusted medical professional in your network, then work alongside that
professional by utilising the principles outlined in this course to help keep your client
active despite their pain or niggle. 14 videos 2-17 mins long, total course length approx 2 hours (videos only, allow extra time for learning, note taking and application).
