How good is your Personal Trainer? I am a Personal Trainer.

Please pass comment on how good your Personal Trainer is.

Also if you are a Personal Trainer and would like to voice your opinion on the Industry, please do.

For example, a letter was recently published saying gyms were taking too much money off Personal Trainers in rent, increasing gyms profits, but hitting hard the Personal Trainer. possibly forcing the standard to drop to increase a higher number of clients, or forcing Personal Trainers into another trade for a higher income – would you agree? Or has the gym got it right?

Personal Trainers are welcome to post comments.

Training Tips for X Training (Cross Training)

The sport is growing and so is the need to train properly. Advice from the top X trainers to anybody thinking about entering a X Training event is something that is hard to come by. Maybe a taster to the way you train is something that anybody thinking of taking up the sport could well respond to. This may in turn lead them to change  their habbits of a boring monontenous mediocre regime they may have fallen in to and enter the next event in the Grand Prix series to spice up their training.

It is of course advice offerd freely and should only be considerd after taking appropriate advice from a suitably qualified person.
