Many trainers are doing a great working with clients. The key thing is that if you don’t have the proper license as a Physical therapist and/or degree, the trainer shouldn’t prescribe the exercises. It’s OK to be trained by someone who meets the criteria and works under their supervision. As trainers, we should be an extension of the PT and other license professors.
Since law suits have increased against fitness professionals, they have to be careful to not work work beyond their Scope of Practice.

She is a true example of a Fitness Professional role model
