Why Anatomy and Physiology is important as a Personal Trainer
Most trainee personal trainers study anatomy through necessity rather than pleasure. Which means that once the exams are over, the book gets closed and Anatomy and Physiology becomes a distant memory.
I’m going to share with you 2 reasons Why Anatomy and Physiology is important as a Personal Trainer.
It’s not just about the exercises!
When we train in the gym, we are not just doing a series of exercises, we have chosen these exercises for a reason, and that reason is anatomy and physiology. When you do a bicep curl, you are not just doing a bicep curl you are adapting your muscle fibres, energy systems, and nervous system.
Every level of the fitness industry builds on the previous. It’s not just about having the correct piece of paper that allows you to progress to the next level. It is also about having the underpinning knowledge to make the next level achievable.
Knowing the hormones, the nervous system and the cardiovascular system gives a platform to learn about the 14 common clinical conditions studies at Exercise Referral and the medical treatments used.
