Personal Trainer vs. Fitness Instructor vs. Coach
The words a gym often uses in describing their staff – personal trainers, fitness instructors or coaches – tend to be general and interchangeable. However, the meanings of these words are very different.
- A personal trainer is a term used often in the fitness industry. It usually is considered a one-on-one method in traini
ng. It may be a certified position. Several certifications are available, some of the biggest ones are ISSA, NASM, and ACE.
- A fitness instructor often tends to be the definition of a person who leads group classes. Though they may mainly work with groups in specific type classes, they are not as often in individual fitness relationships as a personal trainer is.
- A coach is someone who teaches or trains an athlete or individual. Coaches manage a process and make decisions about the best possible means toward success. Coaches direct the training for a successful outcome. Coaches learn how to motivate and push athletes to achieve more.
How is Physiques Gym different?
With these generalized terms, how can Physiques Gym actually be characterized?
