Vocational
Personal Training

Personal trainers are a type of fitness worker that engages with clients in a one-on-one setting to help the client achieve his or her fitness goals.

Students interested in becoming a personal trainer will have to take courses and become certified in order to practice. Students that are trained and certified through a reputable organization, such as the National Academy of Sports Medicine, or the National Federation of Professional Trainers, have the best options for entry-level personal training positions.

Students will often study under another personal trainer, especially when employed at a fitness center, before working with clients on his or her own. Students may go on to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in kinesiology or physical education.

Not only do personal trainers help clients maintain optimum fitness, but also will spend time educating clients in exercise methods, nutrition or overall health. Trainers keep track of a client’s progress and will spend time designing specific fitness programs to help the client meet his or her goals.
