Prescription for a Personal Trainer

» Posted on Sep 18, 2012 in Exercise, Health, Personal Training | Comments Off on Prescription for a Personal Trainer

Having a personal fitness trainer (PFT) will be as common as having a family physician.

The medical, insurance and fitness industries will increasingly interconnect, and more consumers will add personal training to their lives as part of a comprehensive preventive-care program. As the focus of personal training switches to a more preventive model and the link between healthcare costs and wellness becomes even more firmly established by statistics, companies will help defray the costs of training. As part of a more collaborative mode of health care, physicians will write prescriptions for personal training, just as they do now for physical therapy.
