I am looking at the choices in certification. I want to work with seniors; I’m in my early 50’s myself. But looking at the different programs, I don’t know if it’s best to do group training or personal training? I would like to do both, but I can’t find the right combination geared toward seniors. Group training seems to be focused on classes for younger folks, not what seniors would do.
Hi! You can actually do BOTH! Many trainers, including myself do this. Nowadays, personal trainers are conducting small group training classes that offer ‘personal training’ in a small group setting. In my opinion, going the Personal Trainer certification route will give you a bit more flexibility to do what you want to do (train in both a group and personal training setting).
Good luck! I hope that this helps.
