Although a large number of gyms which I have visited in the past few years didn’t offer any such programs, I believe that this is changing. Fitness facilities starting to either have a Registered dietitian or nutritionist among their stuff or they contract with one. The problem is that when gyms and other facilities are looking to hire trainers, they expect from them to have a great amount of knowledge about nutrition as well as training. I agree that a trainer does need to have a good understanding of nutrition, but there is a fine line between that and recommending diets and meal plans. As we know, unless the trainer has a certification or a degree in nutrition, giving out diets is not recommended. I’m glad that fitness facilities owners today begin to realize that having a RD on stuff is the best option to this issue.
