reason to register
registration is all about insurance. organisations like recomp (peak bodies) define what insurance covers.
personal trainers can get fitness insurance without registration. but bodybuilding training & diet is excluded. to coach the public & athletes with heavy weights, pt’s need recomp registration for valid insurance.
fitness is about preventing illness from inactivity; not creating good bodies.
recomp is about creating lean, muscular bodies; not preventing disease.
fitness registration is for instructing aerobics, yoga, pilates, cardio, boot camps & group fitness. recomp registration is for coaching bodybuilding.

we care greatly that personal trainers are competent & developing. therefore, we assess competence; not how much is spent on courses.
