I want to be taken seriously as a Personal Trainer. I’ve obtained my certification, but I want to continue my education so I can be a better trainer especially for those clients that are just starting their fitness journey and those that have had injuries or trying to lose a lot of weight. I am wondering what experienced trainers consider the best education a four year degree or numerous certifications.
If it was down to only those two options, I would say the Bachelor’s degree. However, experience is the greatest education a trainer can obtain. I’m not saying you have to “give it time”; you can learn from those who already have. Ever had an experienced trainer train you? The 1st time I did, it was quite a humbling few weeks for me. It can really enhance your education quickly and give you some insight as to how an experienced trainer got that way. Still, if a degree is within your grasp, go for it. Its all just additional ways to gain experience, and you can never learn TOO much.
