Exercise Physiologist or Personal Trainer?
Exercise Physiologists specialise in prescribing exercise to those with disabilities, they study for 4 years at University to be able to provide the best possible care. Unfortunately, Personal Trainers are not trained to work with people with disabilities and can usually become qualified with 8 weeks!
