This is a vital question for someone who wish to be a personal trainer or a gym instructor. Of course, there are some personal requirements, even before you study for a qualification. First off, you need to be able to lead by example, which means that you are fit and healthy yourself, a good outgoing person, who is patient and encouraging.

Next, you could get a degree in sports science, or sports medicine. This would give you a very strong professional level academic qualification that could be used vocationally and would provide some serious credibility. Whereas it is possible in fact to get a coaching certificate from a number of different associations and colleges, some are more reputable than others.

Of course, additionally it would be good to have a medical related qualification such as St Johns Ambulance or other kind of First Aid or Emergency First Aid qualification that could really help.
