A Personal Trainer’s Role Goes Beyond the Gym Floor…

BODYCORE Training is committed to the personal and professional development of our trainees. We aim to build strong, successful, and inspiring Personal Trainers, PT MENTORS™ and health practitioners.

Once you are a qualified PT you will be stepping into a demanding but rewarding role. The ability to multitask is vital to your success.

Check out some of the duties you can expect to fulfill on a daily basis:

Health and Nutrition advice

Your clients’ health and wellness journey isn’t confined to the gym floor, you need to ensure they are taking their nutrition and lifestyle choices into consideration too.

It is up to you to educate clients about these areas in order for them to obtain real and long-lasting results.

Regularly conducting client fitness assessments will allow you to track their progress and to identify any areas they may be struggling with.

You are responsible for analysing all the data and delivering the results to them in a clear and concise manner.

If your clients have any underlying health issues, you will support them with information and resources on how to manage them.

Mindset Management

As a PT you will need to be proactive and focused. When you are training your clients in a one-to-one capacity, you will need to be 100% present and committed to them in order to create a trusting relationship.

You need to be vocal with your clients about the health and fitness plans you put together for them. This will enhance their motivation and encourage them to future proof their success.

Your client is relying on your expertise to improve their confidence, fitness and lifestyle.
Portraying a positive attitude at all times will inspire your clients to adopt the same mindset.
A fitness journey is one to be enjoyed.

Reminding clients of their successes, and of how far they have come, will ignite their self-esteem and make them hungrier to reach their goals.

The BODYCORE team is here to help you unlock your potential, we want you to succeed and fulfill your passion of becoming a PT.

We will provide you with:

  • 1-2-1 / Small Group Mentoring
  • Live & Recorded Education Webinars
  • Exclusive Trainee Facebook Group
  • Mindset to Success Online CPD
  • Job interview guaranteed on completion of your course

Beginning your journey…

You know what your end goal looks like: a diary packed with PT sessions, a contact book full of satisfied clients, but you are at the beginning of your journey without a clue how to get to that point…

Here are some pointers to get you started!

1. Do your research

The internet is your oyster!
Put aside some time to look into training companies who have a solid reputation. Don’t look for a quick and cheap way into a personal training career. This is an important commitment, so invest your time and money wisely.
When researching, be mindful of the company’s ethos!
Will you be treated like an individual? Will you feel appreciated?
If you know anyone who has completed a PT course, don’t be afraid to speak to them. Ask questions and take notes. Don’t rush into making a decision.

Create a business plan

A mistake we often see new personal trainers make is that they run headfirst into their training without clarity or focus.
What do you want from your PT course?
Begin your journey as you mean to go on: with structure.
Planning in the early stages of your career will allow you to identify your strengths, weaknesses, and what particular niche you may want to focus on.

Speak to established personal trainers

Head down to your local gym and get talking to the PTs there. Find out how they began their journey. They might be able to offer you advice on how to kickstart your career.

Find your niche

This will help you stand out!
What area of personal training are you interested in?
It could be anything from: group classes, 1-2-1 sessions, strength and conditioning training, athletic training, amongst other areas.
Once you have established this, you can ensure you are choosing the correct PT course for you, one that is specific to your niche. You don’t want to commit to a course and later down the line realise it doesn’t focus on your desired area of expertise.

We hope you find the above tips useful.

Why is being a Personal Trainer so rewarding?

BODYCORE was founded in 2013 by managing director Tobias Moir. His education in life coaching, counselling skills and behavioural change, inspired him in the creation of the PT MENTOR™ led, personal training course you’ve heard so much about! 

Are you thinking about becoming a personal trainer?
Here are just a few benefits that come with a career as a fitness professional:

1. Bringing out the best version of your clients

The journey you take as a PT is both fulfilling and meaningful. 

It is your duty to build a safe and trusting environment between you and your client. Once they feel comfortable around you, and confident that you are the correct match for them, they will place their trust in you and open up about their health and wellbeing struggles and goals.

Together you will create a plan of action that will fire up motivation and inspiration within your client. As you both begin to see the results of your commitment to one another, the hunger to excel to the next stage of goal setting will take hold of each of you. 

The relationship between a personal trainer and their client is built upon honesty, determination, and pride.
As a client’s confidence grows, their mental wellbeing, health, and lifestyle will begin to improve. To know that you are responsible for this change, is truly heartwarming.

2. Meeting new people

The role of a PT allows you to connect with people from all walks of life.

You will get to learn from the experiences of your client and likewise, your client will learn from you too.
Meeting new people will open your eyes up to a world of new opportunities as well as potential referrals. 

Often you will strike up a working relationship with someone you wouldn’t necessarily come into contact with outside of the gym, this can encourage you to adopt new perspectives on topics you may have previously had a particular view on. 

Being a PT is a fantastic way to broaden your horizons in various aspects of life.

3. Offering guidance

Is there anything more gratifying than imparting your knowledge into someone else?

This is something you will continuously do as a PT. You are responsible for educating your client around fitness, nutrition and wellbeing. You will listen to their requirements and design programs and sessions around them. 
A client looks up to you. 

You are the person who is going to ensure they are performing exercises correctly and making the best lifestyle choices.

Do you enjoy seeing others succeed in achieving their goals?
If you answered yes, then BODYCORE is the training provider for you!
