What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Since I got certified in Germany I don't need to take continuing education courses to keep my license active (even though I think that is a great idea to ensure you keep up to date with what's going on in your field). However, I do read a lot of the newest research that's coming out, I visit seminars, and I am planning to become certified in nutritional counseling, so I can assist my clients even better.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
In a personal trainer - client - relationship you share a lot of very personal information. Therefore you should make sure you find a trainer you can trust and who makes you feel comfortable.
