Personal Trainer Sued for Woman's Death
In this particular case, the personal trainer in question had no business training anyone! CBS has reported that he did NOT have a personal trainer certification nor did he have a nutrition certification so he had no business training anyone or giving them nutrition advice; especially, advice on supplements like ephedra.
If you are thinking about becoming a personal trainer or hiring a personal trainer, please check the credentials of the certification. Only a small percentage of actual trainers today are qualified to give advice on training and nutrition. After this tragedy, it will not be long before all personal trainers are required to attend a school and pass a statewide board exam.
