Im a lienced Physical therapist assnt for 8 yrs what would I need to become a master personal trainer ?
I have been y helping my clients recover from various sports related inj, or rehabing from surgery. Plus I volunteer with a local high school football for 5 yrs. I believe I have all the knoweldge & experences required to become a master in personal trainer.
I believe the "master personal trainer" cert. is no longer available however, you are on the right track once you receive your PT certification. Glad to hear you are also doing volunteer work!
I hope this Helps!
you certainly have a background that speaks well for possible future success. Your profile is not completed so it says nothing about you.
You need to get a personal trainer certification and obtain liability insurance if you plan to work for yourself.
Also keep in mind that there is more to personal training than dealing with injuries. You also need to consider the marketing aspect of the business. I assume that you work at a physical therapy company where clients are assigned to you. In personal training, you have to go out and find them even though your PT background certainly gives you a leg up.
Good luck, and welcome to the profession.
