Apps or websites for potential clients to search for personal trainers or activities?

6 Answers | Asked by David Waters on Oct 07, 2015

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 07, 2015

Hi David, I only know of this one of the scope you are asking about. The individual organizations may have a list of their trainers but IDEA, to the best of my knowledge, is the only one where you can search so extensively. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com

Walk/Gait Assessment Question

5 Answers | Asked by Tom Borromeo on Sep 30, 2015

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 02, 2015

Hi Tom, I second Martin's answer. I have not found anything for personal trainers for gait assessments. This is the area for physical therapists.
