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.
Hello Eric Waldron, Jr.,
You can start by asking at your potential employer what they require; that’s what I did. I personal train in PA with the recommended NCCA certification, which there are many. The employer suggested ACE; so, after doing some research, I found a good nursing school and took the ACE course there. I have never been happier or looked back. The ACE site lists what you need:

Good luck to you,
