Are any of you a certified personal trainer? If yes, what organization are you accredited (sp?) by?
I was thinking about trying to become one a couple of years ago. I completed a group fitness theory program over 2 years ago. Then I changed my mind and didn't continue with it.
I am a PFT I did the Mount Royal College Certification, in correspondance it
took approx. two years. The college is in Calgary, AB. There is also an ACE
certification out of the States that you write an exam and pay annually I think.
Also there is an organization in Alberta called Alberta Fitness leaders, probably
one for Ontario as well. Here you can take the classes thru the YMCA and get
their designation at the same time.
The course I took was group fitness theory with the YMCA. There was another part that I was supposed to take after that where I would learn the actual class instruction. Shortly after that I found out I was pregnant and gave up on my plans to be an instructor.
