Happy National Personal Trainer Awareness Day!
Today we celebrate the dedicated and important role of fitness professionals
as they inspire people to live their healthiest and best lives, and helping make
New Year’s resolutions to improve fitness and wellness a reality!
If you like helping people and love taking fitness and nutrition courses, getting your personal training certification can be the first step in making a career out of something you are passionate about. If you love fitness and want to be your own boss and work the hours that you choose, getting your personal training certification will allow you to be your own boss with a flexible working schedule!
Personal trainers love the variety of different locations they get to work at with their personal training certification. Not all trainers or instructors work at a gym. Many will go to schools to help students get excited about getting fit. Some will go to senior facilities to help older adults maintain an active and independent lifestyle. Others will work with doctors and clinics to help educate individuals on the importance of having an active and healthy lifestyle to help prevent chronic and preventable illnesses or diseases. Many individuals are sometimes able to manage diseases or medical conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, depression, and obesity with fitness!
Fitness and nutrition coaching careers are on the rise and in demand across many different facets of employment opportunities. Having your personal training certification allows you to cross into these other dynamic careers. Many corporate businesses have noticed the positive benefits that fitness brings to their employees such as fewer sick days, increased productivity, and overall improved mental health. Having a fitness and nutrition consultant on staff gives employees access to creating a healthier lifestyle and a healthier future.
Getting your personal training certification is easier than ever with access to online classes. Many online certification courses allow you to do all of the coursework and testing online for maximum convenience to you and the greatest flexibility for busy schedules. Fitness and nutrition degrees and certifications can be obtained on your own schedule when you are ready to make that change.
Online training is perfect for those who are already working a full-time job and need to be able to study when they have free time. It also provides an opportunity for trainers and coaches to continue their education and gain additional knowledge and certifications to build their careers and take on new responsibilities.
