Online Sports & Fitness Degrees and Careers


Personal fitness trainers and certified personal trainers work with people to help them set and achieve fitness goals. As a personal fitness trainer or a certified personal trainer, you must be motivated to help people and willing to work with them one-on-one. Trainers usually work with people at gyms, fitness centers or in their homes.

Certified personal trainers are regulated and must complete a certification program and be licensed. Certification may be offered in various areas of exercise such as personal training, weight training, and aerobics.

There are many organizations that offer certification testing in the fitness field. An increased number of employers are requiring a bachelor's degree in a health related field.

Certified personal training programs may also include specializations such as working with disabled or elderly patients or rehabilitation. Certification generally expires after two years, and continuing education is required for recertification.
