You might think that weight management is just a matter of losing the fat and getting down to a feather weight. That’s typically the goal of people who want to lose weight or go on a fitness regime, as the average nonathletic individual actually needs to do just that.
The truth is that this along with an understanding of nutrition, is not just about losing body fat and being skinny.
There are actually several ways in which a body holds weight besides fat, to begin with.
And the truth is that it’s just as possible for an athlete to be underweight as it is for them to be overweight.
While a weight management course addresses all concerns regarding weight loss or weight gain,
nutrition for athletes is another thing.
A certified personal trainer must
have correct knowledge of nutrition for an athlete and hence any training course is incomplete
without asports nutrition course.
Different sports and athletic pursuits have different ideal weight ranges, both for efficiency, ease and safety. You can’t sure enough send a 350-pound barrel of a man out on a basketball court any more than you want to send an ultra-thin 110-pound man out on a football field. These are hyperbole, but the point stands nonetheless.
Also, depending on what the athlete is training for, attempting it without a certain amount of weight, or with too much of it can result in injuries or even worse. This is why weight management is another big part of the personal training overall skill set.

which from anywhere else as a single subject would cost a fortune, as just a single step in this affordable platinum personal trainer certification.
