WhyYouStillNeedaPersonalTrainerinaWorldofFitnessApps.jpgThe fitness world is evolving very quickly. Today, acquiring helpful exercise data is possible thanks to the variety of fitness apps on smartphones and tablets. One might even think these apps could replace a personal trainer, as they offer workouts, recommendations and track progress. 

But is it really that easy? Are personal trainers in danger of extinction? My answer: definitely not!

Last month we talked about how the personal training industry is growing rapidly around the world. It’s a great profession that I am proud to be a part of as an in-home trainer and Life Fitness Academy Master Trainer. But what does it take to be a great personal trainer? Many of the skills that make me successful today, I learned on the rugby pitch. 

Some of the most professional personal trainers I have seen operating on the gym floor have been present or ex-rugby players. It’s a sport where you have no place to hide! You are one of fifteen team players with a very specific skill. You might be a speedy winger or you could be a powerful front row player.

Why you ask is this relevant to personal training?
