1) I am a cert pilates instructor and cert health coach, and I’m starting my own business offering both health coaching and fitness training…in order to privately train individuals beyond pilates (using weights, cardio, etc), am I required to get a Personal Trainer certification? 2) I have registered my business as an LLC…am I required to get additional liability insurance or is the LLC sufficient?
Bradford, thanks for your quick response. My gut tells me to go ahead and get the CPT, so I’m going to do it…it will only benefit me and my future clients and I could use the refresher since I’ve been so single-track with pilates instruction and knee-deep in nutrition/health info.
What are your thoughts on reputable CPT associations out there? I have been told it’s important to go with an NCAA-accredited program…do you agree? Specifically, I have been directed to check out NASM, ACE, NSCA, or ASCM…any thoughts on these?
Lastly, if you have helpful information on where I can get a good liability policy, I am definitely interested. Thanks!
