There are many Personal Trainers in Sydney, but finding a good quality Personal Trainer can be difficult. The over saturation of Personal trainers in Sydney has been brought about by two primary factors:

1. An increase in the number of private colleges offering personal training, leading to a downward pressure in the cost of course thus increasing demand.

2. A reduction in time to achieve qualification has reduced significantly with some providers handing out Certificate IV in fitness (the current minimum industry standard) in just 12 weeks. 

The existing trend in the market place is worrying and demands stronger government regulation. Given that exercise can potentially cause significant harm if performed incorrectly and the complexity of human physiology it is not unreasonable to ask that the minimum educational bar necessary to participate in the industry be raised.
