What Does an Athletic Trainer Do? with Priscila Medina
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between an athletic trainer and a personal trainer? And what about a physical therapist?
Unless you work in the health or fitness industry or have had to seek out the expert advice of these professionals, you may not know the difference. You aren’t alone! I was surprised to learn about some of the educational requirements too.
Priscila shares her experience as an athletic trainer as well as educates us on the difference between a true health professional and a cheerleader.
BONUS insight in this episode is Priscila’s personal struggles in her own fitness journey. Most people assume that people who work in the health and fitness industry just looooove working out, and that it’s somehow wayyyyy easier for us. Priscila shares with us how proximity to athletes and workout equipment isn’t a magic pill.
