A course can fill in a gap year between high school and college, provide specialization for a hobby or job or teach potential career skills. Courses are available in-class or online depending on the college, university or institution attended.

What is a course in personal training? Courses focus on nutrition, physical fitness, exercise science and anatomy and physiology. Learn to design, plan and implement fitness programs for group and private settings. Client communication, motivation and client screening to work with individuals with their weight loss and fitness goals are also common course focuses. Business acumen is taught in most courses. Options are available part-time and full-time as well as domestically or abroad and take roughly 12 weeks to complete.

Business skills taught with a personal training perspective can be applied to all aspects of life beyond fitness. Skills in communication and motivation can assist individuals beyond helping their clients and in their own interpersonal relationships, businesses, communities and volunteer work.

For a comprehensive assessment of costs, research the intended course program before making a financial commitment. Enrollment counselors or course websites should contain the needed information.

Personal training can be an excellent career choice for those seeking to maintain physical fitness and a flexible working schedule while helping others with their fitness goals. Work for yourself, a corporation, a fitness center or a gym as a personal trainer. To further your career as a personal trainer, individuals can pursue a college degree all the way to a PhD. Beyond personal training are jobs as strength and conditioning coaches, Pilates teachers, exercise specialists and group exercise instructors. Outdoor fitness, swimming complexes and sports clubs often hire those with personal training certifications.

Balance a busy schedule with the flexibility offered with part- or full-time enrollment and online classes. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
