Certifications & Education for Personal Trainers in Alberta
The Benefits of Earning a Personal Trainer Certification in Alberta
Working as a personal trainer in Alberta – essentially helping others achieve their health and fitness goals – can include everything from training celebrities to working for a local health club franchise, to creating outdoor boot camp classes to helping teens prepare for their favorite sport. As a career, personal training offers the flexibility of setting your own hours, the creativity of planning varied workouts, the ability to connect with individuals and small groups, and the satisfaction that comes from helping people reach their health and wellness goals – not to mention a healthy paycheck.
But you cannot succeed as a personal trainer without a quality personal training certification in Alberta.
A personal training certification attests to the fact that you know what you are doing – that you can create a smart, safe and successful training program for clients, that you can help everyone from weekend warriors to hard-core Alberta AB athletes take their workout and fitness to the next level, that you can listen, coach and encourage. Likewise, it shows that you have a level of intelligence, dedication and interest.
Personal training certifications are now available through both online and in-person programs, based on your schedule, budget, needs and interests; you can also find online fitness universities in Alberta dedicated to higher education in personal training, health and fitness.
When seeking a certification in Alberta AB, it is important to ensure that you find an accredited personal training program that has a track record of success, good ratings from successful personal trainers who have completed the program and a schedule that fits your lifestyle. Certain programs offer specialties in certain areas, such as senior fitness or training for athletes, which may also be of interest.
Once you receive a personal training certification, you can apply for positions at local gyms and health clubs, create a phone or online training or nutrition program, work with individuals or small groups, teach classes or write ebooks on health topics, or coach at a variety of levels – the opportunities are limitless.
Even better, personal training and other fitness jobs remain some of the hottest around with the best growth prospects over the next decade: While many college graduates struggle to find a job, let alone their dream job, you can find work with a variety of companies (from gyms to corporations that have wellness programs) or create your own position and be your own boss. And personal trainers are well paid – far more than group fitness instructors – and can enjoy the flexibility of setting their own hours and schedule.
To take your personal training or fitness career to the next level, find a personal training certification program that works for you, give the program your all, and then really put that certification to work for you in a fun, lucrative, flexible and creative career.
