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.
Wow, that’s a tough one!
I would say a certification carries more weight ONLY because some
facilities may insist their trainers have an accredited certification but not a degree (for liability reasons).
Of course if you want a degree that’s no reason not to go for it!
There are many different paths to learning new things.
