After completing my personal training course from K11 which I thought was enough for me to start my career as a Personal Trainer. But with proper guidance from Mr. Sunil Kotian who belongs to K11 itself suggested me to do PT for Special Population which gave me the real in depth knowledge about personal training for different type of population, having various medical issues, postural abnormality, foot assessment, injuries by accident and sedentary lifestyle any many more.
The teaching techniques and language use for teaching is very understandable due to which I am able to understand different medical reports of various clients. After understanding pathology, I am able to design exercises for people with different medical history.
Today I am working with a fitness company as a fitness counselor in which I started as trainer and got promoted as a counselor as I was able to understand all medical deformity and prescribe them appropriate exercises, which helps them to improve their strength level and make them functionally active, so it helps in improving their quality of life.
Thanks to Dr.Mansi Astha the lecturer of PTSP Course who helped us understand the course very well. I will suggest everyone to be certified in both the courses PT and PTSP which will make them unbeatable in the fitness industry.
