Personal Trainer Degrees and Career Training
One of the hottest and fastest growing career fields today, a personal trainer is a fitness
professional who can help his or her clients achieve their health, fitness and wellness
goals, including increasing muscle mass, losing weight, training for specific sports
events and much more. A fitness career path that tends to grow even when the
remainder of the economy falters, personal fitness training is expected to be a solid
career choice for many years to come. This is according to the U.S. Department of
Wexford University offers many degree programs for personal trainers.
http://www.wexford.edu to help prepare students for a successful career in fitness.
A good personal trainer can help his or her fitness clients reach both short- and longterm personal goals, offer unique success strategies, provide information on healthy
eating and nutrition, and offer encouragement and ongoing support – as well as a little
challenge. While some of these skills come naturally, getting the right personal trainer
education, degree and certification is also important. A personal fitness training
certification affirms a certain level of education and excellence, and this credential is
considered a must today.
NESTA http://www.nestacertified.com provided an NCCA-accredited personal trainer
certification to give students top quality fitness education and credentialing.
Personal Training Certification
To find a personal trainer certification program, it is important to first consider priorities –
do you want an online education or would you prefer to go to class? What are you
willing to invest? Would you prefer a two-year or a four-year personal training
certification? Would you also like to learn business, marketing and social media
outreach skills in your training or is that not as important to you? How do you learn
best? Are accreditations by other certifying bodies important to you? Doing a little
simple research can help anyone identify the personal training education that will work
best for their overall interests and their lifestyle. In addition, a CPR certification will also
be required as a component of personal training education.
Being the Best Personal Trainer
Beyond personal training education and certification, being a great trainer involves
commitment, personality and, sometimes, specialization. Some personal trainers
specialize in triathlon coaching while others prefer to work with seniors. A specialty can
help a personal trainer hone his or her business plan and increase clients as well. In
addition, learning the right marketing and business outreach strategies can also help
personal trainers of all levels and locations succeed.

the body, of the business and of the heart. So whether you are interested in working
one-on-one with clients, in small group settings, in a gym, in a martial arts studio, online
or in person, personal training is a diverse career path that offers a variety of challenge,
fun and opportunity – both today and tomorrow.
