Factors to consider when thinking about the best personal trainer certification

Blog by: Suryakant Tripathi

While it is not the easiest thing for me to choose the very best certification, it is easy for me to tell you which certifications to stay far far away from.

Most of what I would classify as “online” certifications are simply trying to scam you out of your money.

If a certification claims that you can get certified in a very short period of time, then they are definitely not legitimate.

If anyone could study for a few hours, take short multiple question tests and become a personal trainer, then everyone would be doing it.

To become a legitimate personal trainer you need lots of knowledge in areas such as anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and more. Very few “online only” certifications are legitimate. I will be discussing these in this article.

The main factors that you should consider while trying to find the best personal training certification for you are:

  1. The general focus of each certification
  2. Accreditation of each certification
  3. Price of each certification
  4. Test pass rate of each certification
  5. Industry recognition
  6. Continuing education requirements
  7. Average income of certification holders
