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.
Hello Patricia Slauson-Marcussen,
The more education the better, of course. Then again, it depends on the person and how much they choose to learn and what to do with that knowledge.
A degree does not make the person, their actions do.
Whatever you decide, do your best and the clients will be able to tell that you are a professional.
