New Yorkers used to be stuck crossing the river to Jersey to attend personal training schools. But now there are a few more options to pursue certification in New York.
There is no doubt that certified personal trainers can pull in top dollar in New York city. But surprisingly, there are few options for new trainers to get educated in the city. That changed with the advent of AAPT's hands-on training course in lower Manhattan. AAPT have managed to fill a gap that has existed for a long time. And even if you are not near Manhattan, their weekend only option makes commuting for classes manageable.
Of course, if you are near New Jersey, you have several other choices within reach. And I have included them below.
And if an online course appeals to you, there are a few nationally recognized training courses to help you get your New York personal trainer certification. In fact, these online courses are the only feasible option for many people living in upstate New York.
