As a personal trainer and registered nurse, I think it's very, very important for trainers to self educate and learn how to work with various conditions, especially diabetes and high blood pressure (medicated). Since so many people have diabetes or some type of medical condition - this is what's going to set you apart from other trainers. It will be your expertise on working with those special populations. I specialize in training clients with medical conditions/injuries (it's one of the reasons I became a registered nurse after I was already a trainer). One thing I think that should also be mentioned for diabetic clients - be sure to have glucose tablets and 100% juice available at your facility. It's a must! When a client's glucose takes a sudden drop, you need to know what to do in those circumstances. So read up on interventions. Cold and clammy need some candy. Juice and glucose tablets are especially important for you diabetic clients also your regular clients too. Sometime you'll have other clients come to work out without eating. So those things are important to have nearby. Great post though, very in-depth! Louben, http://www.repkefitness.com/... see more
