Why Personal Trainers Need Anatomy and Physiology

Personal Trainers Need Anatomy and Physiology

If you’re thinking of becoming a personal trainer, unless you’ve a sports science degree tucked up your sleeve already, you can expect a lot of ‘bang for your buck’ from the anatomy and physiology part of your course.

Our students who complete their personal trainer certification with us feedback a feeling of fascination and curiosity at delving into so much about the human body and its function. They enjoy being on a new learning curve and the challenges this presents telling our tutors how much they feel they’ve accomplished when they’ve acquired so much relevant skill and expert knowledge.

What You Will Learn

During your Level 3 personal trainer course you will be taken on an exciting journey where you will learn about;

  • The circulatory system
  • The respiratory system
  • The human skeleton and its joints
  • The muscular system
  • The life-course of the musculoskeletal system along with implications for special populations
  • Energy systems
  • The nervous system

Anatomy and Physiology Hold the Key

Stick with it. This course module is a pivotal part of your learning for a number of reasons:

1 – It’s your backbone

With this talent stored away in your repertoire you’ll be transforming the lives and well-being of your personal trainer clients.

2 – You will be able to walk the talk

Clients will enlist your support for a wide range of reasons. They will talk about medical issues and with your sound anatomy and physiology know how you’ll be readily able to understand and converse, with the skills to shape programme design and exercise accordingly.

We develop these skills further during the practical elements of the course, in London, where our students experience first-hand how their theoretical knowledge and client facing skills merge together in the delivery of an expert personal training session.

3 – Stand out as the expert

Your clients will be truly impressed and feel in safe hands because you are demonstrating understanding of how their body works.

4 – Warning signs and exercise contraindications

You’ll be confident in what to ask your client, and look for both before, during and after a personal training session to maintain your clients’ well-being. Examples here include blood pressure testing, medical questionnaires and GP referral.

An experienced personal trainer pulls on their anatomy and physiology skills all the time. In fact it’s such an ingrained part of what they do that after a while it becomes second nature. The fascination the top personal trainers we know have with the human body and helping others means that in fact they never stop learning. There’s always a new client with a different condition or problem to research and strive to assist with improving their fitness and health.
