Personal Trainer Certification - Three Expertise Levels
A personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in developing and implementing an individualized approach to exercise, nutrition and flexibility. The basic components involved in the profession of personal training include: muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, and body composition. Other components such as speed, power, balance and sports conditioning may also be addressed. NHE personal trainers possess the knowledge to address these components and also have minor training in exercise physiology and sports rehabilitation. Due to their extensive training, NHE personal trainers may also provide other services; such as health/fitness seminars, wellness programs and nutritional consultation.
