Arizona Personal Trainer Certification

arizona personal trainer certificationA few personal training schools are popping up around Arizona. And of course there are several online programs to choose from. Check our listings to find an Arizona personal trainer certification program that is right for you.

Remember that your education and your certification are two different things. With a good education in personal training you will be prepared to pick up multiple certifications. But everybody has a tendency to jump straight to the certifications even though they know nothing about being a personal trainer.

The major certification programs are guilty of perpetuating this situation because they offer weekend workshops periodically in major cities. But they don't tell you the obvious, that a weekend of hands on training might help you pass the test but won't adequately prepare you for a new career.

So it can really pay off to invest in your education. We are only talking about a few months and hundreds of dollars, not years and massive student loans. You don't have to get a college degree when there are so many schools offering programs to prepare you for Arizona personal trainer certification.

If live near Phoenix, you have three strong contenders in SETS (School of Exercise Training and Science), NPTI and Apollo College. All are reputable programs. In Tucson, Apollo is an easy choice. And if you want to become a certified athletic trainer which is a step up from personal trainer, the A.T. Still program in Mesa is worth a look. If neither of those options work for you, or if you need flexible class schedules, then one of the online programs would be a good fit for you.
