What kind of education should my personal trainer have?

Education for Personal Trainers

When evaluating a potential personal trainer's education, it is important to go beyond the basic certifications. In addition to a well-regarded certification like the ACE or ACSM, women should look for trainers with college degrees in fields like kinesiology, biology, or sports medicine. Finding a personal trainer with a degree in a physical-fitness related field will help insure that the trainer is knowledgeable and professional. A highly qualified and educated trainer is more likely to be familiar with the injuries women are prone to and will be able to offer tips and advice on how to avoid injury.
