I am very interested on a personal level in fitness and nutrition, however I have no certifications or background in either field. I am 55, in good shape physically, workout out regularly but do have some “normal” issues like arthritis that can come with age. It seems that there are so many PT’s out there and most/all seem to be young and in super shape. With these resources for clients to choose from, would it make any sense to pursue an education in either/both fields with an eye towards trying to it for a living some day?
Yes I think it’s a great idea. I am 54 and have had a personal trainer for a few months. My trainer is only 30 but has an amazing ability to relate to anyone of any age. If I didn’t have him I would certainly look for someone closer to my own age. I think women in particular at my age would benefit from this.
