How do i become a personal fitness trainer?

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

Hello, I am 15 years old and I am obsessed with fitness and nutrition.I have no idea what to take in high school to become a personal trainer and maybe even a nutritionist. The only thing I am taking in High School now is Food for Fitness and Food and Nutrition. What other things do I have to take to become a future Fitness Trainer.

You’ll need to be an experienced athlete yourself (which you probably are, with all the athletic activities you are doing) and you will need to take some courses after you finish high school.

You will need the following:

1. AFAA (Aerobics and fitness association of America)

2. NSCA ( National strength and conditioning association)

3. ACE ( American council on exercise)

4. NASM ( American college of sports medicine)

5. A degree from a post secondary institution in one or more of ( Physiology, exercise science, kinesiology, physical education, sports medicine, fitness management.)

6. Experience (two years normally)

I got the answer from my source below.

What are the health requirements to obtain a private pilot’s license?

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

I’m thinking of taking flying lessons and wondered what the health requirements are. I am color-blind. Would that affect my eligibility? What are any other health requirements?

You should be in good general health and free of any medical conditions which might cause you to become incapacitated in flight, such as epilepsy, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, hypertension (because of the increased risk of incapacitating heart problems or stroke), etc.

You can get a license if you are color-blind. If you can pass any one of about two dozen approved color vision tests, you can get an unrestricted license. Otherwise, you’ll generally get a license that doesn’t allow night flight or flight without a working radio.

That’s how it works in the U.S. Other countries may differ.

In general, the medical requirements for pilots are still very strict and somewhat inconsistent—if you’ve ever had a seizure in your life, you might be disqualified, but if you take a drug like ethanol daily, no problem. The FAA claims that at least 95% of all applicants can obtain a medical certification allowing them to fly.

If you can’t get a license, you can still fly, but only with a licensed pilot who acts as pilot in command. So you could fly a small Cessna with yourself and a licensed pilot friend on board, for example.

How do you start a nutrition committee in your school district?

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

And who would I contact in my school district to start or join a nutrition committee in the district?

In the food services dept. there should be a dietitian or other specialist in nutrition to comply with federal and state laws about nutrition. Usually there is an office designated for that person to work out of, who is ‘in charge’ of the cafeteria workers and what they make.

What are the fitness requirements for achieving excellence as a footballer?

Friday, November 19th, 2010

I know that a footballer needs to have a very high level of fitness to run around for 90 minutes but could someone explain the fitness requirements?

They do things like run up and down step stairs – in a 10 storey building several times a day as well as rigorous training. There is also sprinting, running backwards and other gruelling training.

How do you get certified as a health teacher?

Friday, November 19th, 2010

My mom is a teacher, and I think she would be a good health teacher since she already teaches Food and Nutrition, and several other classes. The school needs a health teacher and she already knows a lot about health, but what would it take to become certified as a health teacher for a teacher?
We live in Utah, any info will help.

it depends on your state’s department of education…they should have a website where you can check it out. in Missouri she would just have to take the Praxis for health education to be certified.

What is the best weight loss supplement?

What is a career that combines both nutrition and nursing?

Friday, November 19th, 2010

I have completed all of my undergraduate coursework and have just applied to nursing school. After I graduate nursing school and become an RN, I am planning on applying to a masters program (either a nurse anesthesia or nurse practitioner program).

Are there any careers out there that combine both nutrition and nursing? Especially ones that require a masters degree? I have a HUGE passion for nutrition and would love to incorporate that into my profession.

Any ideas?

I finished a nursing program, as this is where my passion lays. However, I encourage everyone to look into a better field. Nursing has no shortage and there are literally NO jobs. I am in NYC and know BSN nurses who have been out of work for almost a year. When you DO find a job, 9 times out of 10, it will be abusive. Nurses have to deal with an incredible amount of stress, harassment, bullying, and degradation.

This is coming straight from the nurses mouth. If you have any level of self-respect, you will absolutely regret your decision to go into nursing. The suffering is tremendous and most nurses have conditioned themselves to accept the abuse. They are in flat out denial and will viciously defend their career. I am humble enough to say that I LOVE helping my patients, don’t mind the dirty work, but I actually have a self esteem and realize that, in this field, human beings are treated well below their worth and it’s not natural, nor healthy.

Here are a few fields that I have personally researched and very few people are aware of them. They are currently stable and will BOOM incredibly in the next few years as we have about 60,000,000 baby boomers retiring:

- Occupational Therapy Assistant…go for your COTA (Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant)- average salary $50,000-$65,000/year to start.

-Physical Therapy Assistant- average salary $40,000-55,000/year…but they are needed a little more than COTAs because most people do not want to go to school for PTA. It’s a little more difficult of a program and you usually don’t go back for your Bachelors. You would make this your career. It has a HIGH rate of job satisfaction, though.

-Health Information Technologies- $50,000-$100,000/year (depending on how large your facility is and what state it’s in). Ask yourself, HOW many people do you know that specialize in this? That’s right, probably NONE. Why? It’s a newer major that was created as health care expands/grows and systems are being updated. Being a computer major will not be enough. Hospitals and Health Care institutions have elaborate billing/coding/medical systems that are updated CONSTANTLY and they need someone who has the specific knowledge to handle them.

-Health Care Administration- $40,000-$85,000/year. This is the person that RUNS the show, per se. They have a vast knowledge of codes, laws, policies, and some payroll and human resource experience. They are the go-to people when there are questions to be asked…they are the jack of all trades. Desk job= LESS harassment, stress, bullying. But don’t be fooled, you will have to put in effort and actually know your stuff…very rewarding once you do.

-Diagnostic Sonographer- $35,000-$75,000 This person is trained to look for cancerous masses, cysts, etc. Very rewarding career, works alongside doctor and saves that doctor a DRASTIC amount of money.

I’m just saying..keep your options open.You don’t have to go into Health can do whatever you want! :) Have a great day and feel free to message me if you would like!

Do you think the players in world series are taking advantage of using HGH b4 MLB starts testing?

Friday, November 19th, 2010

We can only imagine what they are doing to get an edge..
But do you think the entire lineups are loading up on HGH to take advantage of there being no test for it?

Not as much as in other sports like football, but some probably are…

Is there a good health insurance for college students?

Friday, November 12th, 2010

I am a sophomore in college and have not had health or dental insurance since I was a little girl. I can’t be on my mom’s insurance cause the price will sky rocket. I have a part time job so I don’t get health benefits at work. Is there some type of health insurance that has good coverage but also doesn’t cost too much since I don’t make too much?

In some states, there is no "health insurance that … doesn’t cost too much", period. In some states, all health insurance, for everyone, costs "too much".

In other states, there is health insurance for someone your age that does not cost too much. However, it is not specifically for college students; it is for anyone your age who lives there and meets the medical criteria, whether or not they are a college student.

Finally, some, but not all, colleges offer their own insurance, which may or may not "cost too much", depending on what that particular college offers.

There is good health insurance for college students who attend colleges with good health insurance or live in states with good health insurance. There is not good health insurance for college students who attend colleges without good health insurance and live in states without good health insurance.

Try asking this again with the name of the state where you live, the name of the college, and your age.
