In addition to being selected as one of the most influential personal trainers of all time in 2012. Mr. Parise is an expert in all proper, customary and applicable personal training facility/industry standards, guidelines. Parise states common accepted practice mandates pre-activity screening(s) including an exercise readiness plan with formal reporting. Parise notes screening is to take place prior to any individualized prescription, hands on assessment(s), workout regimen or recommendations for any initial participant in sports, or fitness. Screening requires the use of a formal questionnaire along with medical history specific to any red flags, orthopedic concerns and any other relevant specific information prior to any touching or hands on assessment. Mr. Parise warns fitness and gym facilities regarding failure to have any operational system in place to monitor either manually or technologically any pre-activity screening. Mr. Parise states “you must provide a competent, certified and/or qualified personal trainer in order to personally train” at said facility, and in fact, those who titled herself/ himself a “Certified Personal Trainer” sometimes fail to have any required skill, experience that issue certificates or certifications pertaining to personal training. Further Mr. Parise will explain there are various programs where it is possible to purchase various titles relating to personal training, or sports coaching without actually receiving any adequate, competent or proper training that is necessary to perform personal training guidance, instruction and/or assessment as a Certified Personal Trainer. In this regard, Mr. Parise understands proper validation. Many credentials as a personal trainer are improper, without merit and do not certify anyone as a personal trainer. Many fitness trainers fail to properly receive certification and/or continue any education in order to qualify themselves to physically touch, assess and/or perform any hands-on training. The American College of Sports Medicine, The American Council on Exercise and/or The National Strength and Conditioning Association which involve and require more stringent testing policies. Mr. Parise states that working out or being in shape has no relevance to a qualified/certified professional. Parise states that there is a lack of safety, standard of care and/or any other necessary programs or policies in effect at the majority of facilities which gave rise to this very unfortunate occurrence and the harm/injuries that occur. This lack of proper training, monitoring, instruction, supervision and advice gave rise to dangerous and unsuitable activity, and negligence inside the facility. It is simple to ensure proper safety protocol to avoid the occurrence of injuries. Dave Parise’s expert opinions are based upon his expert’s knowledge, training and experience in the fields of personal training, and physical fitness including his knowledge of anatomy of the human body in addition to Parise’s education, post-graduate training, practice, experience and other appointments related to said field.
