Personal Trainer Certification Michigan

personal trainer certification floridaMichigan is fortunate enough to have a couple of options for pursuing personal trainer certification. You can do everything from a weekend workshop to a full four year degree to earn your personal trainer certification in Michigan.

Now that you have decided to become a personal trainer, you have some big decisions to make. The first decision is your education. Some people take shortcuts and get educated by watching a DVD or attending a two day course. Others pursue more extensive options like NPTI's 500 hour course or even an Associate's degree from a University. As you might imagine the career results you achieve based upon this first decision are drastic.

If time and money are no object then pursuing a solid personal training education up front makes a lot of sense. The popular six month program at NPTI consistently turns out qualified personal trainers. Passing the certification exam becomes just a formality because the education and practical experience is an integral part of the course. If you are in the Rochester Hills area (greater Detroit) then NPTI should definitely get your attention.

If NPTI doesn't work for you, you can always choose the flexibility of an online certification program. These programs are gaining in acceptance and popularity as the internet becomes a great tool for training. The programs offer live classes (no DVD's or recorded material), access to instructors, and classmates that can help you study.

You can check out all your Michigan personal trainer certification options below:

NPTI is a national program with 23 locations nationwide. The Michigan location is in Detroit (Rochester Hills).
