Personal Trainer Certification Texas

personal trainer certification texasIt's shocking but there are very few personal training schools operating in Texas.

If you are living in Texas and interested in starting a personal training career, your choices are a bit limited but there are strong local players in the market. Most notably, Cooper Certification which is a Dallas based certification provider is a dominant force in Texas. You can read our review of the Cooper Certification. The downside to Cooper is that it is not well known outside of Texas. So if you think you may go out of state you may want to consider some of the decent online programs that allow you to self study and attend hands on training in a major Texas city or Las Vegas.

If you are in the Houston area, NPTI is your best choice. With 30 locations natiowide, NPTI consitently turns out high quality personal trainers.

Make sure you shop around and compare programs. Choosing the right certification is one of the biggest factors for determining your success as a personal trainer. I have seen so many trainers take short cuts on their certification. They always end up lacking confidence and struggling to retain clients. That is not a long term recipe for success.

My top pick for personal trainer certification in Texas would be NPTI for the great hands on training, but if self study is your thing then Pinnacle's online program. Pinnacle has a broad curriculum, you can go at your own pace, and includes a brief but intensive hands on component.

So here are some of programs available for personal trainer certification in Texas.
