Hi, I am a first time visitor and what a good headline to grab my interest in your site ! I have been a professional trainer of athletes and weight loss consultant. (14 years). I enjoyed to a certain degree working with weight loss clients as much as. sometimes more than with athletes. One reason is that there is greater potential for transformation with the overweight, physically incapable. eg from not being able to walk 200m without puffing to becoming a 10km fun runner and faster than the trainer (myself!)

However, I quit this work that I mostly enjoyed with weight loss clients 8 years ago due to reasons that your article points to. I became uncomfortable with the fact that I was not appropriately qualified. You can be a designer and prescriber of the most brilliant diet & exercise programmes, however I realised that the value of this was at a guess about 10% of the success in the client meeting their goals, let alone holding onto them permanently. Diet & Exercise is just “mechanical” tinkering, skirting around the real issues. I was required to be a psycho-sprirtual counsellor to a degree for which I was not qualified. All coaches must be “psychologists” and motivators but I was treading in areas with people out of my depth. For their “safety” and my own I withdrew from that work. I may go back to it sometime now that I am older, having got myself more together , and with a better idea of relating to people in this way.
Regards
KJG
