I started to learn the tricks of our trade in personal training 12 years ago. That’s the time when I met most of my mentors in the industry. But along the way, I’ve learned to choose wisely on who I should be looking up to for me to progress professionally & personally. With a bachelors degree in physical therapy in hand, It helped me to see and separate the ‘outstanding’ from the other trainers who could have been my mentors based on their knowledge, personality & fitness service. So, i don’t think that there’s something wrong in the picture to have physical therapists as fitness leaders – as long as we learn from these mentors how we can safely and efficiently help our clients achieve fitness goals then I’ll give my two thumbs up for them… but, if these mentors can also help me to be a better trainer, then all the respect and gratitude is there for me to give them.
