The Alternatives

OptionsWe realize there are many, many choices out there for fitness trainers to earn certifications in varying subjects and specialties, and many of them are wonderful programs.

However, it is important to beware of the “buy your certification here” programs that substitute ease and price for quality. Two things you will want to consider when deciding upon a certification program:

  • Many states do not regulate the personal training and nutrition industry, allowing for some unsound, unreputable programs that will take your money despite failing to deliver a quality educational service and certification.
  • The price of the certification program is not necessarily indicative of its quality: A $99 fitness course may contain a wealth of valuable, scientifically-based information that will help increase the services you can offer your clients, as well as improve your reputation in the community. Conversely, a $6,000 program might give you a pretty certificate at the end, but it doesn’t necessarily guarantee a quality return on your investment, whether personally or professionally.
