Summary How healthy is the fitness industry? Is your personal trainer ripping you off and endangering your health? What do you hear as the sun is rising? Is it birds chirping and crashing waves, or is it a voice yelling "10 more ... Push through ... Keep going!"? The fitness industry in Australia is booming with boot camps and personal trainers filling our parks and beaches. It is now estimated to be worth over 800 million dollars per year but how qualified are the people who are pushing us to our limits and could potentially cause us serious injury? The minimum qualification for a personal trainer can be attained in eight weeks and many veteran trainers and allied health professions feel it is no where near long enough. Should we be looking to personal trainers to help us move the extra pounds? Or are they simply ripping us off and endangering our health? Australian current affairs forum program, presented by Jenny Brockie. (An SBS Television Production, in English) CC WS
