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?
Joanne and others,
I believe there is no magic solution. However, we have to look at the “big picture.” All professions
have good and bad apples.
However, when a personal trainer is making $50, $60, $70/hr or more without a degree or significant knowledge on how the human body works, energy systems utilized, muscles contracted, prior injuries…Having regulating is the way to go and it is on the way here in DC which will affect all states.
So at the end of the day, the more knowledge you have, the MORE IT WILL HELP YOU!!!!
That will only solidify the professional that you are and the profession of personal training needs
a face lift..
