A personal trainer is an exercise professional with the knowledge and experience to offer advice and guidance in the areas of exercise and fitness. These professionals can assist you by designing a safe and effective exercise program to help you reach personal goals. A personal trainer can assist with weight loss, exercise performance and improved wellness.
It's usually about a Six Month Certification Program. IDK if there are pre-rec's

In contrast to an ATC...
athletic trainer: an allied health professional who, with the consultation and supervision of attending physicians, is an integral part of the health care system associated with sports. Through both academic preparation and practical experience, the athletic trainer provides a variety of services, including injury prevention and recognition and immediate care, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic trauma. . Athletic training has been recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA) as an allied health care profession since 1990.
At minimum a BS in AT, National Cert & State licensure - an ATC can also do personal training b/c exercise expertise is part of our cert.
