    How Heat Can Affect Young Athletes

    Last updated 2 years ago

    A personal trainer can be a crucial asset when training in the heat.  We all know the dangers of heat exhaustion and heat stroke in adults - now researchers are reminding us that hot weather safety is just as important in young athletes. Doctors warn that kids who play sports in fields need to keep safe - and the most important way is to hydrate. Drinking adequate amounts of fluid before, during and after practice or a game prevents heat related illnesses by keeping blood volumes high to support circulation.

    There are many ways a fitness trainer can help you train for sports in the heat, without overexerting yourself.  A broad understanding of the biological response to exercise and dietary intake will allow a trainer to service their clients to reach their goals. If you have an interest in expanding your fitness skills, then visit the American Academy of Personal Training. Our talented staff of professionals can get you started on track at the personal training school of your dreams.

    Personal training is a growing field with new jobs and specialization areas that continue to develop. As you prepare for your career as a personal trainer, know what to expect out of the job. Keep a positive outlook as you go into the field and consider the following tips as you begin your career: 

    1. Be Adaptable: Personal trainers work in a variety of environments varying from client’s homes to gyms and health clubs. You may work indoors or outdoors, so remain flexible to a changing work environment.
    2. Remain Confident: As a personal trainer, you are in a position of leadership. You may be responsible for one client at a time or a group of people in a class. Even when you start out as a trainer, having confidence in yourself as a trainer and as a leader is key to your success.
    3. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: You are the example for your clients, so staying fit and healthy is a big part of your job as a trainer. Don’t just diet, but develop a life plan for eating right and exercising daily. Your clients look to you for inspiration and motivation, so show them the good habits you want them to learn.
    4. Plan Your Career Path: Know what certification you want to get and consider picking a specialty for the type of training you want to do. Think about where you want to work and know what you have to do to get there. If you have specific goals in mind, it will be easier to achieve them.
