Warns against bad personal trainers

Personal trainer Per Helge Fjørtoft gets great exposure with kettlebells in this article on bt.no today.
Per Helge is a kettlebell enthusiast and competitive athlete based in Kristiansand, Norway. The article does not mention kettlebells at all, but the issue raised is interesting. And we guess that the article is not negative for neither kettlebells or Per Helge’s status as a personal trainer ;-)

“While the trend with a personal trainer is now starting to spread out of the center chains in major cities to an ever broader segments of the population, this increases the providers that offer both the service itself, but also education. The title of personal trainer is unprotected, it means that everybody can call themselves a personal trainer and charge, regardless of skills and education.”
