- You practice routinely (and adore it!)

- People frequently ask you, “What’s your mystery? How might I get results like you?”
- You want to help other people accomplish their wellness objectives.

On the off chance that these 5 articulations concern you, at that point it’s time you think about turning into a fitness coach!
How to Become a Personal Trainer in Toronto: Do You Need to Get Certified?
The main thing to comprehend about the individual preparing industry is that it’s unregulated. In contrast to some different callings (for example nursing, bookkeeping, instructing, and so on.) that require a particular instruction and assignment, anybody can consider themselves a fitness coach, regardless of whether they have no involvement or certifications.
From the outset, this may sound like something worth being thankful for since you could begin your own preparation vocation at the present time. You have been practicing for a considerable length of time, so why not print up some business cards and begin today?
There are 3 astounding reasons why you should put on the brakes and complete the best close to home preparing confirmation (for you!) before you take on your first customer:
- Protection – Yes, you can visit customers in their homes, carry them to yours, or meet them in an open spot (like a recreation center) to start their instructional meetings. It’s impossible that anybody will ever scrutinize your capabilities, BUT working as an uncertified fitness coach implies that you are additionally uninsured.
You can’t acquire individual preparing protection without confirmation of owning a perceived accreditation (this will be required during your protection application process). Working as an uninsured fitness coach is a VERY hazardous suggestion!
Each exercise you get ready, paying little heed to how safe you plan it, will be brimming with potential for genuine customer damage. Without protection, you will actually be at risk for any claim that could emerge because of such damage. The hazard is basically not worth taking.
- Believability – If you work as a sole owner, implying that you work autonomously from any gym or wellness association, there is minimal shot that anybody will get some information about your capabilities. All things considered, your own wellness (judged for the most part by your appearance) is the thing that customers regularly use to check your power as a fitness coach.
On the off chance that you look fit and can enable customers to get results, that is all a great many people will think about.
Nonetheless, quite possibly an educated customer will get some information about your accreditations. In what capacity will you answer that question genuinely?
Or then again, you may have a chance to talk at an occasion or compose an article for a paper or magazine. By what means will you portray your certifications when they don’t generally exist? Expressing, “I’ve been working out for more than 10 years” doesn’t convey much weight, regardless of whether you truly know your stuff.
- Profession Development – Let me be straightforward: Obtaining the best close to home preparing accreditation won’t mysteriously change you into a superior coach. Indeed, what you know before you get affirmed, essentially from your very own involvement in the exercise center, is likely more down to earth than a lot of what you will realize in an individual preparing affirmation course. In any case, turning into a guaranteed PT will open numerous entryways for future discovering that will build up your profession tremendously.
As you manufacture your own preparation business you will probably find that you work essentially inside a particular specialty. Possibly you will prepare sprinters, or new mothers, or older customers, or occupied business officials, or customers who are recouping from malady or activity… it doesn’t generally make a difference who, yet chances are solid that you will cut out a particular specialty for yourself as a fitness coach.
With the goal for you to lift your abilities and incentive inside this specialty, you are going to need to learn. This is the sign of a top fitness coach: He or she is a long-lasting student who will consistently be searching for approaches to improve the customer experience.
Obviously turning into an ensured fitness coach or personal trainer in Toronto is the best approach.

An interview with Andrew Perry, General Manager, Polar Foods International Inc. (Souris and Morell Divisions)
The PEI fishery has undergone significant changes since the 1990s. We have had the cod closures, plant downsizing and the offshore trawler deployment. Despite these changes, our mussel and oyster harvesting and processing have done well and the lobster industry has remained strong, with many licensed fishermen and processing facilities.
Polar Seafoods International, a PEI-based company, is the largest seafood processor on the island, employing approximately 1,500 people in and around all of PEI’s lobster fishing grounds. It also has a large mussel facility in Borden, close to the Confederation Bridge.
Polar’s lobster products are shipped worldwide and include canned products, brine packs, raw tail production, meat packs, live shipments, and bisque by-products for chowders and so forth. It also produces mackerel, herring, flatfish, rock crab, spider crab, snow crab, silversides and smelts.
I had the opportunity to meet with Andrew Perry, General Manager for the Souris and Morell Divisions. Andrew has been involved in management training for 15 years and represents the second generation of his family to work in the seafood industry.
Andrew believes that a motivated, skilled supervisory and employee team can improve the productivity and efficiency of an operation, and that a highly skilled workforce will bring a team-building component to the workplace.
For the coming year, Andrew has several human resource budgeting priorities. His primary concern is the safety of all employees. His other priorities are supervisory training, operator efficiency (critical positions), labour-management relations, coaching and team-building, basic skills training and orientation training for new employees.
“The events of September 11, 2001,” Andrew says, “have resulted in greater restrictions and regulations with regard to the Canadian seafood processing industry. We have to address the concerns of our US and Asian customers in order to grow as a business, stay competitive and meet all import/export requirements. Polar Foods International has a QMP and HACCP program up and running, which has international acceptance.”
The need for training and upgrading of employee skills is ongoing. As the new General Manager, Andrew is committed to continuing the trend towards increased training. He says that this has become a more urgent priority with the many guidelines now being issued regarding the cross-border shipment of seafood products.
According to Andrew, only a motivated and skilled-based work unit can meet this challenge, which is a condition not only of the US market but also of the global market.
I would like to thank Andrew Perry for his time and his comments. For more information about Polar Seafoods International, please visit the company’s
It is common knowledge that providing training to both employers and employees benefits our industry at several levels, including the quality of our workforce and products. In this two-part series we will discuss how in-plant training can be cost-effective and how easy it is to implement. If you meet the following criteria you could qualify to become an accredited NSSC training instructor.
· Did you take the NSSC’s Instructional Techniques course, or can you demonstrate that you have successfully completed a similar course?
· Do you have additional training and experience in the subject being taught?
· Do you have industry knowledge and experience?
If you answered yes to the above questions, pick up the phone and call us now. That’s what Jonathan Slattery did and he is now an accredited NSSC training instructor.
Jonathan an employee of the Browns Bay Packing Company in Campbell River, BC, met all the criteria and is now equipped to deliver many NSSC courses as his plant.
Jonathan has been an instructor in the seafood processing industry for the last four years, and in his opinion we have a prosperous sector consisting of many specialized areas that require formal training. Formal training represents an opportunity for employees to learn about and keep on top of new trends as they emerge in the industry. It also allows seafood processing workers to add knowledge and skills to the hands-on training they have already received.
If you look at in-plant training you will quickly realize that it is a cost-effective solution. “The cost of bringing in instructors or sending employees out of town is just not realistic,” says Jonathan, “specially if it has to be done on a semi-regular basis. In-plant training has been very cost-effective for us, mainly because we are using our own facilities for course delivery. We also see cost savings resulting from fewer accidents and fewer issues related to quality control, which of course have a direct relation to production. Well-informed and well-trained workers have a greater sense of responsibility and ownership because they understand why things are done the way they are.”
Jonathan has noticed many other advantages of in-plant training. It helps to create a team atmosphere, for example, because everybody is learning the same thing at the same time. In addition, the courses are usually plant-specific, and since they are delivered on-site they are truly accessible to employees.
If you would like to find out more about the NSSC’s In-plant Training Program, call and you could soon be implementing your own in-plant training program.
In the next issue of The Seafood Trainer we will follow Jonathan as he implements his first NSSC course. Jonathan will be sharing his experiences as an instructor and we will also be highlighting the experiences and points of view of his students.
Members of the Canadian seafood processing industry will be delighted to learn that the new HACCP DVD they have been waiting for is finally here. The NSSC has been working for several months on this initiative and the product is now market-ready.
This interactive and up-to-date tool has been designed to support Canadian seafood processors as they implement their HACCP plan. The project was guided by a steering committee comprising industry leaders and a representative from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. The committee’s role was to ensure adequate representation of content and images in addition to verifying that regulatory standards were met.
The DVD follows a typical seafood processor as it implements an HACCP plan for the production of a new product. The DVD uses a step-by-step method, which makes the plan easy to follow and implement.
The DVD, which is available in both English and French, costs $34,95 plus applicable taxes for non-members and $27,95 for non-members.
Processors and employees will soon have access to four other new courses:

Common causes of fish-borne illness are also addressed, as well as the importance of sanitation and hygiene.

Provision will also be made for a presentation by a health-care professional on the prevention of soft-tissue injuries, proper stretching techniques and ergonomics.
