I’m a personal trainer (uncertified) working in the state of PA. Are there any requisites that I need to know of off hand (insurance, certifications, etc.) in order to be able to start working with clients either at their homes or at mine? I’m currently located in the State of PA.
Also, could anyone recommend me to a great masseuse (massage) insurance company that would cover a freelance masseuse without any certification/studies in the U.S.?
I really appreciate any answers with regards to the above questions.
While I’m not sure about the laws of PA, I do know you would be better able to establish yourself as a true fitness professional by getting certified (NCCA accredited is preferable). Then, prepare yourself for your in-home business (to get hired in a gym setting personal training cert. is likely required). You also should have CPR/AED certification, which you would need to get your personal training cert. Insurance coverage is also a necessity.
If you are going to run a business, I would take the time to prepare your credentials and do it as professionally as possible.
Best to you and good luck,
