College Degree in Fitness.Period
by Tim Lord
Certifications are over rated. I have one, big deal. I also have 2 college degrees in fitness, have taught in public schools in fitness, and taught personal training for 20 years. I will put my knowledge in fitness education above any cert learned in months or weeks.
NOTHING replaces good education, research work, and practical hands on training for months!
I am attaining a Doctorate in Sports Performance Psychology and this will allow me the title of "fitness expert" more than any certification you will find. Too many "gym rats" who are training or trying to train people. Fitness should be taught and the approach to personal training should be a teaching one, not a training one and that will get the best results.
