Professional Competency and Risk Management for Personal Trainers, Part II
By Anthony A. Abbott, EdD, FACSM
The number one priority of any personal trainer is the health and safety of his/her clients. Should there be an emergency, the trainer must be able to respond in a timely and effective manner. Although trainers may ensure that their practice adheres to an acceptable standard of care, there always remains the heightened possibility of an injury or a death due to the stress placed upon the human body during exercise. Therefore, it is incumbent upon the trainer to extend the practice of risk management through the use of assumption of risk forms as well as the purchase of suitable liability insurance. With these cautionary measures, the trainer should enjoy not only a personally rewarding career but also a bright and sunny future free from the ominous clouds of litigation.
