I am starting a business teaching group fitness (specifically, but not limited to, teens), but I can’t decide what certification I should get. Does group fitness certifications teach you as much about proper fitness as Personal Training Certs? I want to learn as much as possible about fitness without going back to college!
Hello Jessica Bowman,
To answer your question if GFI teaches as much as PT…the personal trainer course will teach you more about kinesiology. The GFI will teach you more about instruction styles for the group setting.
I am glad I studied for personal trainer first, then the health coach and group fitness instructor third. They all complement each other, but the personal trainer lays down the foundation.
Good luck to you.
