Is the personal training industry oversaturated?
In my opinion ,personal training is a business , and every business is a good business.
It is depends on how you run it .
Let’s look at the current situation in the this fitness industry .The personal training industry is WAY too easy to get into.
You can go take a weekend course, or worse, a single-day course, and walk out with a certification.and start posting shit about how good u are .
Is this necessarily bad? Not really. Some of the best trainers I’ve ever worked with don’t even have any certifications.
People have been coaches for years,they do their own study , research and they need a certification only as a formality.In this case, then a one-day course is perfect.
The problem is that any bro who thinks they know about working out, just because they go
to the gym ,have a big chest and chicken leg, can also get certified in one day, and start training people , and start showing off their big arms.
Training people is more than making them sweat – you are literally taking their health and wellbeing into your hands . I always put myself in a way that , i am better that a doctor. As doctor works on the cure side , and as a coach i am working on the prevention side.
I prevent people to get diseases that caused by obesity or overweight by desinging a great weight management programe. I prevent my athlete from acl injury ,
by designing a good conditioning programme .
So, to that end, there are many, many trainers out there, but a whole lot aren’t very good.And i really mean it .
If you are good, or have a lot of higher education and actually understand anatomy, physiology, functional anatomy,
biomechanics, advanced nutrition, movement systems, and more, you’ll stand out above the competition.
So , the training industry is Over saturated but with low quality . If you want to be good , get your hands dirty,
study and learn as much as you can .the cream always rises to the top eventually.
