Hello, I am an 18 year old female and I am dedicated to becoming a fitness trainer not only because its a great career, but also because I love it. I think it would be a great place to start I love working with people and I love fitness. At times it is hard because there are so many different routs to take and so many things to learn but I am convinced in going through with this. I would love any imput that I can get good or bad. Thank You
I thoroughly encourage you to earn at least a two year degree in exercise science even if it is at your local community college and progress from there.
Without being presumptuous, from your name I am assuming you are a Latina. As an African American fitness professional, I urge you to earn the best credentials in the industry by FIRST earning your degree and then earning fitness credentials.
I suggest this as there are not many Latino/a degreed fitness professionals who know their craft well and there is a HUGE market in the spanish speaking community.
I am very passionate about seeing more “minority” fitness professionals excel in the fitness industry. If this is what you want to do go BIG early and set yourself apart from the rest.
I wish you all the success you dream!
