First, the education element of becoming a personal trainer is fairly straightforward. A high school diploma is generally required along with certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and automated external defibrillator (AED) certification, of course there is an exam needed should you want to become a certified personal trainer.

It takes about six to eight weeks to prepare for the certified personal trainer exam. However, unfortunately not all personal trainers are certified. It is by personal choice as to whether a personal trainer becomes certified. Yet, if certification is achieved the person trainer can expect better pay from their clients. Furthermore, there will be more respect and admiration with a certification, not to mention there is more knowledge of how the human body works and adapts to training as the studies for the exam will enlighten and teach several different wellness subjects.

If you want to know how to become a personal trainer, there are many programs available for the serious student. Anyone who wants to become a personal trainer has the option to go online and search the many web pages that are dedicated to the personal trainer certification exam. There are programs for studying at home, and the local fitness centers can also point you in the right direction if you are interested in studying close to home. Just remember, there is a venue to fit your lifestyle if you are serious about becoming a personal trainer.

Taking the exam is only the first step in becoming a personal trainer. Becoming a personal trainer is more than ordering someone around, and making them do exercise and stretches. It also is more than giving health advice on taking vitamin supplements and proteins. It entails caring about your clients, and sincerely wanting them to succeed at becoming healthier.  So, becoming a successful personal trainer isn’t about becoming certified, it is about being passionate in relation to what you do and how you affect and help your clients’ lives.
