At Positive Shift we have BCAK members on staff who offer personal training. BCAK stands for the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists. They represent movement experts in athletics and rehabilitation.
First of all, anyone can call them self a Kinesiologist. It is 100% up to you to check and see if they have appropriate training or their skills are recognized. In British Columbia, the BCAK insures and recognizes kinesiologists who have a bachelors degree in a related field (usually Kinesiology or Human Kinetics). They require people to do continuing education to maintain their membership. So, if someone is a “BCAK Practicing Member”, the BCAK has checked their education and is making sure they stay current.
Simply put, a BCAK member will have some formal education on movement, fitness, rehabilitation and health.
