Exercise is an essential component of good health, but not all exercise professionals are created equal. At Hoag Executive Health, we understand the importance of working with a qualified exercise professional who can help you reach your health and fitness goals. Let us help you learn more about the difference between an exercise physiologist and a personal trainer and why it matters.
Understanding The Difference Between An Exercise Physiologist And A Personal Trainer
An exercise physiologist is a highly trained and qualified professional who has a deep understanding of the body’s response to exercise. They hold a bachelor’s degree or higher in exercise physiology, kinesiology, or a related field, and are often certified by professional organizations such as the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). Exercise physiologists work with a wide range of clients, including people recovering from injuries, those with chronic health conditions, and athletes looking to improve their performance.
On the other hand, personal trainers are fitness professionals who typically hold a certification from an organization such as the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) or the American Council on Exercise (ACE). Personal trainers typically work with clients on a one-on-one basis, helping them to set and achieve fitness goals through exercise and nutrition.
The Benefits Of Working With An Exercise Physiologist
The benefits of working with an exercise physiologist include a more personalized and comprehensive approach to exercise. They are trained to assess your physical fitness, design an exercise program that is tailored to your needs, and provide ongoing support to help you stay on track. They also work closely with other healthcare professionals to develop a plan of care that addresses your unique needs.
While personal trainers are a great resource for helping you achieve your fitness goals, an exercise physiologist is a more qualified professional who can provide a more comprehensive and personalized approach to exercise. Hoag Executive Health offers the services of an exercise physiologist to help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
