Good personal trainers need to take a holistic approach to personal training, with the emphasis on the clients overall fitness goals. Large percentage of the Australian population tends to spend majority of their day in the office engaging in very little physical activity. When designing any workout plan, personal trainer must ascertain client’s goals but also strengths and weaknesses. Thus, workout plan should incorporate, improving balance, flexibility, muscle tone, core strengths, and posture, as part of working towards overall clients desired fitness goals.

Personal training implies that each workout plan will be designed for and unique to each individual client. However, too often personal trainers take short cuts or do not have enough experience to manage each work out plan to suit various clients’ needs. Big fitness chains tend to be the biggest culprits of this practice, simply due to the large volume of the clients that personal trainers working for the big chains tend to manage.
