What are Online Personal Training Courses?

Online personal training courses are also distance learning courses that trainers can take that can be done fully or partially online to earn a certification. As you read through the pages on each of the major personal trainer certifications that are available, you would have noticed that most programs offer distance learning courses or the workshop approach.

Several Personal Training Schools offer online courses. Two of the most popular programs are Pinnacle and Penn Foster listed below:

How "Online" are the Online Personal Training Courses?

Of course, they vary. Pinnacle, Penn Foster and ISSA all offer 100% completely online personal training course. You can register, view your materials, take personal trainer practice tests, and take the real certification exam all online without every talking to a real person. But this is rare.

In reality, 100% online personal training courses are probably not the way that most of us prefer to learn. I will explore that in our next topic.
