Should a personal trainer know all of the medications you are taking?


I mean everything.

From water sources.

To any medications.

In the first session with my clients, I screen them and discover every detail about everything the consume and any injuries they might have.

We trainers in Australia work closely with doctors, psychologists and other health professionals to create and deliver the best health outcome to our clients.

And yes certain medications impact on fitness programs, results and can cause severe side effects.

So please disclose all your medications to your trainer if you haven’t done it so far.

And if you decide to take any medication the same thing applies.

Your trainer must be advised.

As you can see, group fitness classes don’t cover it and that is one of many problems of training people like they are numbers and not like individuals.

Your health matters to me.

Yes trainers should know about everything you are consuming.
