PTs report increase in number of clients with mental health and wellbeing concerns

There has been an increase in the number of people seeking mental health advice and support from personal trainers.

According to a survey conducted by fitness training company The Training Room, more than half (55 per cent) of PTs reported they are seeing more clients approach them with mental health concerns and worries, which they say are largely caused by work-related stress and financial concerns.

The survey, which was carried out among The Training Room graduates, showed that PTs are also having to work longer hours and spend more time counselling clients.

Other findings include that a vast majority of PTs (78 per cent) currently spend up to five hours a week responding to clients’ messages and giving them help and advice outside of their paid for one to one sessions.

“The fitness industry is becoming much more diverse, with a strong shift towards overall wellness and this feedback from our graduates shows just that," said Greg Slade, head of health and fitness at The Training Room.

"The implications for PTs and gym operators are interesting and will require PTs to demonstrate greater levels of emotional intelligence and empathy for their clients.”
