Legal Boundaries

Legal boundaries are relatively easy to determine they are limits that your municipality, county, state, or some other political entity specifies. Zoning laws and certification requirements are two examples of legal boundaries.

Your legal limits as a personal fitness trainer may include issues such as whether you can make a diagnosis or sell health related products as part of your work.

Additionally, remember that as a personal fitness trainer you are not qualified to diagnose a client or recommend pharmaceuticals as a form of treatment. Doing so would be out of the scope of your legal boundaries. If you suspect a client has physical or mental problems that are beyond your scope of practice, refer him to a qualified professional.
