Ok…so sometime last year I decided to bite the bullet and start a very slippery slope of getting qualifications for being a personal trainer in the UK. Typically one needs to be insured via Public Liability Insurance, which doesn’t happen easily unless you’ve got qualifications from either REPs, CYQ (Central YMCA Qualifications), FIA, NRPT etc. etc.
There’s no *one* governing body for fitness professionals, though obviously some are seen in a better light than others for a gazillion and one reasons. But this isn’t the point of this
I decided to get my quals from Future Fit training and I’ve been slowly going through the modules. Mostly having to disregard what I know from my own background and up bringing, and reading out of books/journals. What’s really gotten frustrating is going through part 1 of 2 nutrition modules. A LOT of what is written is obviously from “guidelines” from the government and we all know that those guidelines are archaic at best.
