As we transition from summer in to fall, many people view this time as a natural opportunity to get back into a structured life routine. The whimsical fun of summer is over; kids go back to school; adults go back to their normal working-hour schedules. This transition back into ordered living – you might say – can also mean a recognition of the need to get back into the weight room. But, after 3 months of nothing but fun in the sun, it might be difficult to know exactly what path to take, and, more importantly, who to turn to in order to get the best advice on how to proceed most successfully.

It is in situations like this where you should be looking not for a trainer, but for a coach.

More specifically a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). A CSCS – the certification that every single strength and conditioning coach at any level possess – is an exercise professional that has a degree in exercise science, and has been tested on the principles of training that go far beyond what a general gym trainer is required to possess: 

  Minimum Education Requirements Academic Areas of Competency Standard of Practice Continuing Education Requirement Attributes
CSCS College bachelor degree in an exercise related field Anatomy, physiology, exercise physiology, nutrition, biomechanics, cognitive motor learning Health & exercise history assessment, movement mechanics assessment, ongoing periodized program design 3yr cyclical rigorous and audited re-certification requirement sport psychology education, learned motivational technique, practiced coaching cues, spotting technique
Trainer High school diploma N/A In-house course Not regulated Personal enthusiasm

 As you can clearly see, the difference and benefits of choosing a strength and conditioning specialist for your health and fitness needs is undeniable.
