The certifications matter when selecting a personal trainer.
Kinesiology is a health related field focusing on the human body in relation to anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.
When you are choosing a personal trainer it can be overwhelming. There are a lot of options out there and it is difficult to know which to choose. When someone has a Kinesiology degree, it separates them from Certified Personal Trainers.
Certified Personal Trainers are often required to take a written exam as well as a practical exam. The process takes about 2-6 months to complete. Many in home personal training companies hire large quantities of Certified Personal Trainers to service their clients, and follow-up irregularly meaning there can be limited accountability from the company and lack of formal training from their trainers.
When someone has a Kinesiology degree, it separates them from Certified Personal Trainers. Trainer knowledge translates into better results for you!
Kinesiology is a 4 year undergraduate Bachelors of Science degree encompassing various subjects such as biomechanics, human anatomy physiology etc.
Fitness and Health promotion is a college diploma involving the practical component of the dual degree involving labs and internships providing real life application of scientific theories.
The combination of these two programs means you will be in the hands of a highly knowledgeable, educated individual who has the ability to not only train you, but assist with the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries.
