I know a lot of instructors that do personal training too. My question is if you do both do you find that it’s worth the cost? I know you have to pay the renewal fees for both as well as get CEC’s for both. Can the same CEC’s count towards both group for and personal training? Thoughts about the cost of doing both?
most organizations will accept the same CECs for both personal and group fitness. And those usually have a petition process and will recognize them after all – for a fee 🙁
With that in mind, the only extra cost is the renewal fee. If you go with the same organization for both, such as ACE, you will receive a reduced rate for renewal.
Whether it is worth it depends on you. Teaching group fitness exposes you to many more people than does personal training, and you are likely to get clients through that avenue.
