After 140 years of Democrats running State Goverment and leaving our State $3 Billion in debt, the Republican Party is now having to come up with ways to raise revenue and one of the ways is to License “Exercise Physiologist” or any one who prescrives “exercise” AKA “personal Trainers” and you must have a MASTERS degree, to practice. What do you think? Good or Bad Idea?
Thanks, Jason, for providing the link. I had not been aware of this bill, nor will it impact me in my practice as a personal trainer.
This bill addresses clinical settings where exercise testing is done, and this certainly should be done by a qualified person. Whether a licence for that is necessary, I am not to say. I hope that people hired for this process are well screened by the medical providers.
As for me, I work with people who have been cleared by their doctors to train. And I even have clients who are -appparently – healthy enough that I do not even require a physician’s approval to exercise. The bill does not describe this scenario.
