Anyone a trainer?

I am seriously considering becoming a personal trainer. I have been on an amazing weight loss journey and I have discovered so many amazing things about myself that I think it would be fun to help others in this same way.

If you are a trainer where did you get your certification and is it easy to find jobs? Have any links or advice for someone who is wanting to start out?

  • I am currently working on getting certified through ACE and AFAA. I took a workshop not long ago and those two were what I was told to get certified with. My goal is to be a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. ACE and AFAA offer those and much more. As the person above me said you may enjoy being a Beachbody Coach. I'm one as well and I love it!

  • Well I'm not a personal trainer but I was looking into too, the better certification you have the better job you can get. You may want to look into becoming a Beachbody Coach you don't need certification and if you've lost a lot of weight you really could get paid a decent amount of money for coaching through Team Beachbody. I've looked at the program several times and just haven't had the nerve to just do it.
