Can I hire a personal trainer that is certified even if Im not?

9 Answers | Asked by Ivelyse Figueroa on Oct 21, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 21, 2016

Hi Ivelyse, I don't think there is any reason why you cannot hire a personal trainer to work for you even though you yourself do not have a certification as long as you have proper liability insurance for your studio. If you hire those trainers as independent contractors, then they would have to ...

What is the average percent asked for from an Independent Contractor per session?

7 Answers | Asked by Anne Peterson on Oct 13, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 20, 2016

Hi Anne, an additional consideration is that trainers who bring their own clients expose those clients to your facility, and they may start using services that you provide (or recommend you to their friends). A well-established trainer can be a great asset to your facility in which case you can f...

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 13, 2016

Hi Rebecca, I am not aware of any legal requirements. I hold on to my record for a very long time because I often found that clients come back at a later point in time, and it is great to refer back to the original notes. I only throw records out when clients have passed away. Karin Singl...

I have close friends and family who want to train with me although I am not yet certified. Are there waivers that cover this?

6 Answers | Asked by Dana Spitz on Oct 11, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 11, 2016

Hi Michelle, I really no not do push-up assessments at all. They are for the fit and healthy, and the assessment alone could to more harm than good. I often have clients stand against a wall and bring arms overhead and out to the side to see range of motion, whether the client can bring the a...

6 Answers | Asked by Michelle Phy on Sep 29, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 30, 2016

Hi Michelle, beyond the obvious physician's approval which I assume you have. Why does an assessment not work? I try to take all my clients through the NASM assessment, often quite modified as necessary but range of motion assessments and static postural assessments are always possible. You ca...
