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.
Christine gave you a great answer.
If you are going to run a business, training and insurance are critical.
Fitness: What if someone gets hurt while you’re training them? Most insurance companies won’t cover you unless you’re certified. I don’t think you’d be breaking a law to personal train without a certification in your state.
Massage: Similar answer. However, I think that’s an even greater risk for you to do massage without a license because there are state standards for massage therapists whereas there are not state standards for personal trainers.
