Updated: Jun 10, 2023


Chose a Kinesiologist to be your Personal Trainer

Have you ever injured yourself when exercising? Are you living with pain in your feet, knees, hips, back, neck, shoulders? Do you have any preexisting health conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, past injuries or surgeries? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will want to choose a Registered Kinesiologists to be your Personal Trainer.


Why? Like a chiropractor, physiotherapist, massage therapist and dietitian, a kinesiologist is a Registered Health Care Professional. Kinesiologists use the modality of movement and exercise to help a variety of individuals including those with preexisting health conditions achieve pain relief, build strength and feel more confident in their everyday activities.

A Kinesiologists scope of practice is defined in the Kinesiology Act, 2007 as “the assessment of human movement and performance and its rehabilitation and management to maintain, rehabilitate or enhance movement and performance.”


In other words, if you have had difficulty moving or exercising in the past (have had reoccurring injuries), living with chronic pain, a Kinesiologist will get you moving with less pain and more often safely and effectively.

Ontario health regulators like the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario exist to protect the public. It sets and enforces standards of practice so that patients can receive safe, ethical, and competent health care. They ensure that Kinesiologist applicants have a minimum 4-year Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology or Exercise Science at an accredited University focusing their studies on human anatomy, biomechanics, psychomotor behavior, etc. The title “kinesiologist” can only be used by people registered, or licensed, with the College. To become registered, a person must pass the College’s entry-to-practice exam. The College develops rules and guidelines for the Kinesiologists' practice and conduct, including a code of ethics.
