My girlfriend desperately wants to become a certified personal trainer, however she doesn’t want to be like all the other personal trainers at the gym.
My girlfriend particularly wants to be a certified fitness expert as well as work in a body as well as wellness center.
The steps to become a personal trainer is a little more involved than I thought. First, you need a highschool diploma. Next, a college degree in exercise science, physical fitness and athletic interests medicine is required. You also need CPR as well as AED training to strengthen a potential trainers portfolio as well as also helps with certification. After that, a fitness specialty such as group fitness training, one on one training body recovery is selected. Once the potential trainer chooses this, they have to pursue certification. They can do multi step training, rely on their college degree in the field, or certification classes. Finally once this is all said as well as done, the trainer needs to work for some gyms. They have to start small as well as work their way up to build a portfolio as well as show results. My girlfriend has been gym hopping for several years now. She is technically a personal trainer, but only for a gym in town. Ideally, she would like to work in a bigger fitness center that only offers personal training, whether it be group fitness classes or one on one time. She has the education as well as plenty of in-field experience. The issue she’s having, is finding this the best gym for her to work in! I’m willing to transfer as well as change jobs just so she can achieve her dream.
