This semester I will be shadowing a personal trainer. A personal trainers job is to educate clients about the safety and effectiveness of exercising. Your personal trainer is someone who is there to help motivate you and coach you through physical activity. A trainer can be thought of as your own personal fitness coach. A personal trainer is someone who can help you set and achieve goals that you want to accomplish when it comes to weight loss or even being overall healthier in your life.
I choose this specific occupation, because I personally find it enjoying to work out. I try to stay in shape as best as I can. Personal training is also one option I am looking at for a possible career. I find it very important to keep up with exercise and I used to be very athletic before coming upon some injuries. I think personal training is a very interesting career to pursue.
The person I will be shadowing for my project is Monica Ehlers. She is one of my closets friends moms. She built a gym in her backyard. She teaches a fitness class once a week at 24 hour fitness. She also is a life coach. A life coach is someone who can help you discover things about your life that you did not even know existed.
