NCSA Trainer Pay?


I have been considering becoming nsca certified as a pt and was wondering what I could expect to earn as a yearly salary.

I am a college student looking for a source of income and will probably pursue a career in strength and conditioning. Thanks in advance for any info or input.


I'm wondering this too. I like money, but I'm not a huge fan of busting my ass for very little payout. Getting into the DPT program at U of I requires a 3.5 to even be considered competitive, so I'm wondering if it's worth it.


All the letters do is get your foot in the door. What you do after that is up to you.

Besides, dudes like this have made gazillions and I don't see any letters after his name!


By the way, I'd advise you NOT to show up at your college weight room wearing an outfit like that.
