Its amazes me to see how many so called fitness guru’s are out there giving advice on how to train and how they hook people into there offerings based on there social media following(with no formal qualifications).
I have seen first hand the damage a unqualified PT can give to there client. Even if they claim that they have a certification , it’s fair to want to see it for yourself.
