Michael’s Answer

Hi Fernando - for both of these careers, you will likely need to go attend a certificate program instead of a traditional 4-year college. Barbers are trained by Cosmetology Schools, and typically attend for 2 years. Personal trainers are often certified by independent or government certification boards, but the safest bet is a technical college or state school.

For personal trainers, many universities offer a degree called Kinesiology, which is the study of the human body and movement. You can use this degree to enter rehabilitation, physical therapy, or classic personal training.

For any 4 year degree, it's always important to consider the cost of the education vs. the quality of the opportunity it will provide. If you have the chance to study at a great school with a national or regional reputation, it can pay off big time as you move forward in your career - but, if the school is expensive and people don't know much about it, you may be better off with a technical degree from a community or technical college.
Thank you comment icon thanks for all your help i appreciate it! Fernando

Instead of being a personal training, you should look into becoming a physical therapist. This would be much more rewarding and stable job,

Hello Fernando, I believe Marino answered the barber question well. I will recommend The Citadel for becoming a personal trainer. It is a military academy but there is no military obligation upon graduation. They offer an exercise science degree as well as an MS in exercise and sports science with concentration on tactical performance and resiliency. Great school and my alma mater.
