Question
Posted by: Nina | 2006/10/27

Getting in back .... thanx(reply)

yes, I need someone to assist me with the training, while I'm training to give advise when I'm doing something wrong and how to improve. I've been training at the gym for the past 11 years, and If I look at the advice that the trainers give to the people its shocking! While people are training wrong the trainers will just walk by and look the other way, I think I just dont like their whole attitute towards the people training. But you r right I will take it up witht the management.

But I think now to that I should rather get a biokinets guy to help me and be there while I'm training. But there are SO many and I dont know who to get? Do you have any one you could recomend? I will travel to Stellenbosch to if I have to. I should have been more clear in what I was looking for.

Hi Nina

Thanks for the reply back to my response, i appreciate it!

I agree with your opinion - I think that what has happened is that the fitness industry in SA grew so quickly over a short time that a lot of people got into it as a the 'soft option', and so while there are some very good people in the business, there are some really weak ones too. I guess the trick is to pick them from afar and then avoid the weak and make use of the strong.

If you are after a biokineticist to assist and advise on your training technique (that is, in lifting or performing certain exercises), then try out the following list:

These are names of biokineticists who are registered with the South African Association. I'm sorry I can't provide a specific person I would recommend, but I don't actually know what particular services each offers. Remember, most bio's are in practices where they see people with injuries, and then they help with the rehab and recovery. They may not do what you are asking for, which is a kind of personal training job. This is why I suggested perhaps a bio in the Virgin Gym, because they are partly employed to do exactly that job.

So if your gym doesn't have one, then consider this list, otherwise it's the easiest option to see the gym's bio.

Good luck!
Ross
