Most health benefits occur with at least 150 minutes per week of moderate intensity physical activity e.g. brisk walking. Both aerobic and resistance training are beneficial. When you follow the above program health benefits will occur for all ages and also for the people with disabilities.

The core concepts of this model are program design based on client objectives and assessment results, and various phases of an exercise program and guidelines for cardio, strength, balance, flexibility and functional training.

As an ACE certified trainer I am bound by Professional Responsibilities and ACE code of Ethics, Client Privacy (The Personal Trainers should maintain confidentiality and privacy of each client’s personal information like health related information etc.).

As a certified ‘REHAB FX’ and ‘REHAB ESSENTIALS’ TRAINER I am authorized to be involved with the rehabilitation of clients who have low risk injuries. The REHAB trainer course creates a new breed of fitness professional who is able to more effectively assess, rehabilitate and prevent low risk injuries from developing during their training of clients. Significant injuries from a client’s history have been the root cause of Left/Right body asymmetry, which most in the fitness and rehab industries consider to be the biggest predisposing factor for future injury. The other two causes of body asymmetry are left/right dominance and extended periods of time engaging in sporting and/or work activities. The rehab trainer course deals with injury screening strategies, Myofascial release, loosening techniques, Corrective exercises, Risk assessment of different limbs and activation techniques in detail.

As a REHAB TRAINER, I am well versed with Injury screening strategies e.g,

  • 7 Most Common Injuries.
  • 7 Classic Harmful Movement Faults.
  • 7 Critical Biomechanical Screening Tests.
  • Corrective Exercises for Different Injuries.
  • True Functionality for Life and Exercise.
  • Techniques for Improved Activation and Stability.
  • Dynamic Stability Drills.
  • Risk Assessment for an Injury.
  • Evaluation of Movement – Pathomechanics.
  • Isolation Exercises.
  • Progressions and Regressions.
  • Activation/Rehab Drills.

Nutrition and Weight Management

It is within the ACE – Certified Fitness professionals’ scope of practice to provide nutritional guidance and recommendations to clients eager to improve health, overall fitness and body composition. While a registered dietician (R.D.) is required to offer a specific nutrition plan, the fitness professional can and should be ready to provide general nutrition information and advice about weight gain and weight loss.

Being familiar with basic nutrition principles will help the ACE-certified fitness professional to better understand the interaction between diet and exercise and help him design more effective exercise programs.

As a personal trainer, I can recommend nutrition strategies for achieving an ideal weight or body composition as well as for achieving top physical performance. Body composition and weight management are important parts of overall health and fitness. Poor eating habits can result in poor fitness, low energy levels and even to lifestyle-related diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and some types of cancer. Nutrition and athletic performance are also closely linked.
