On the rise, childhood obesity is of vital importance to the health and wellbeing of the future adult population. And not only that—the quality and enjoyment of childhood itself is suffering as children confront more and more health challenges even at a very young age.
With the right training and experience, fitness trainers can help bring health and happiness to the lives of children and strengthen family relationships in the process. Armed with wisdom on nutrition and fun, low-pressure ways to bring greater activity and exercise into children’s lives and routines, physical trainers can help even their youngest clients implement healthier habits that can serve them for a lifetime.
ASFA has launched many certifications geared toward trainers seeking to expand their continuing education credentials—and one of those key certifications is on Childhood Obesity. With an ASFA certification, experienced trainers can increase their earning potential while serving the health and well-being of our nation’s youth through this growing and increasingly critical niche market.
