Hey D'Andrea, personal training normally requires certification...although there are a few universities that offer it as a major. I have posted a link below. If you want to take related courses in college, you could focus on kinesiology, nutrition, rehabilitation, weight training and physical education. This link will help you learn more about the requirements to become a certified personal trainer: https://www.acefitness.org/.

I wish you the very best!
