Personally, I don’t think so. I can understand why others might champion the idea, but for me personally, the idea doesn’t sit well. If there was a hall of fame for personal trainers, why not have one for postal workers, sanitation professionals, truck drivers, etc. All of these people provide an important service just as personal trainers do. Do we really need a hall of fame for every profession? Note the word “service” I used in the last sentence. As a personal trainer, I feel that this profession is innately about serving others and helping them achieve their goals. My satisfaction comes from seeing my clients succeed. It’s not about me at all. My clients are doing the work – I’m just providing the appropriate tools and motivation to point them in the right direction. I’d rather see a client hall of fame.
