Many fitness corporations are hiring individuals with only a high school degree and are predicating their entire search criteria on sales experience and communication skills. Individuals who accrue a single personal training certification are calling themselves fitness professionals which is mind boggling to say the least. I also find that many managers have an overtly biased outlook on personal training certifications and place an emphasis on hiring individuals who are certified with the same organization.
I think that’s a really general biased comment.
This industry is run on integrity, education, professionalism and experience but just like any other industry there is nothing that is mandatory
If you want to be a desired trainer: you need to be smart and able to do the work.
It’s not just about the money
