So, you’ve made your decision. You want to become a personal trainer. You love fitness, you love talking about health and you want to help others reach the maximum of their potential while making a full-time (or part-time) income.
There is one single most important thing you need to be aware of before “jumping in” to this sector and below we present it to you.
You need to become a certified personal trainer
It doesn’t matter if you are the Guru of Fitness, if you have over 10 years of experience in weight lifting or if you devoted your life to learning the secrets of health and well-being. If you are not certified, people will not trust you.
The “average consumer” loves to see certificates and diplomas hanging on the wall because it builds trust inside them. It’s the same thing, doctors are doing. They have their certificates and awards hanging on a visible place (usually above them) for their clients to see.
Also, it will be much easier for you to land new clients if you present yourself as a Certified Personal Trainer as a Certified Nutritionist, etc.
Finally, your competitors will not be able to use the certification absence against you.
What you need to do
You must obtain a certification from a reputable and trusted source. A reputable and trusted body of obtaining certifications in the health & fitness industry is NESTA.
