Hey everybody, I am thinking about becoming a personal trainer and in looking at the personal training certification. Does anybody have the certification? Is it difficult to pass?
I am looking for in the study tips to help me out. Thanks for all the help!
Ideally you need to do the level 3 as it will open up more doors, the advanced anatomy and physiology is probably the hardest part of the course, go with an established company, mine took about 18 month to complete and included an 8 week nutrition case study as well as gym instructor, circuit class, and PT, mix of online learning and practical workshops, I wouldn't say it was super easy, but manageable.
I would shy away from the 8 week courses as I not understand how anyone can gain enough knowledge on those courses, but that's just my opinion. I trained with future fit.
once you have qualified you need to make sure you take out indemnity insurance which is about £80 a year.
