The most important qualities that a personal trainer should have is passion, compassion and knowledge. A personal trainer should also have a realistic pathway in mind for helping their clients reach their goals and ultimately, see the results that they are looking for. One of the best things about the fitness industry is that it is not ageist, meaning that you can become a personal trainer from the age of 18 or 40 and remain an excellent trainer.
Perhaps one of the most rewarding benefits of being a personal trainer is helping people to reach their goals. Obviously these goals will vary from weight loss and gaining muscle to helping someone recover from a serious injury.
