My back up plan is become a personal trainer so I wanted to know what courses I should take for that career. #physical #physical-trainer #physical-fitness #career #college #career-counseling


Yes getting some fitness certificates is definitely recommended. Actually, I think taking some classes on nutrition science, physical education and health promotion can provide you some basic understanding on fitness training. Jennifer H.

Exercise science, health promotion, nutrition and athletic training, etc. I would also recommend getting certified by a fitness organization such as ACE or NASM.

A personal trainer is an individual who has earned a certification that demonstrates they have achieved a level of competency for creating and delivering safe and effective exercise programs for apparently healthy individuals and groups or those with medical clearance to exercise. They motivate clients by collaborating to set goals, providing meaningful feedback, and by being a reliable source for accountability.
A number of certifications are available in the U.S. Most require a high school diploma, but having Bachelors degree in sport sciences makes it easier to clear tests.,cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) certification, and some type of examination. The United States Registry of Exercise Professionals (USREPS) is the official registry of exercise professionals in the United States
The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) or the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) certification) facilities only accept personal trainers with certifications recognized by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) if recognized either by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and/or the U.S. Department of Education (USDE). As of now, NASM, ISSA, AFAA, ACSM, ACE, and NSCA certifications are among the 16 accredited certifications recognized by IHRSA (International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association)
