For the personal trainers in Canada:
where did you certify?
how long did it take?
do you train private clients, or work in a gym?
did you need some additional certifications to be able to become a personal trainer?
The reason I’m asking is I just started university and wanted to earn some extra money. Being a kinesiology student, I figured personal training is the way to go.
I wanted to certify with CanFitPro, but you need a CPR certification. If you want to train private clients, you need to pay for insurance. I wanted to know if the companies that you certified with had similar requirements.
Also, could I avoid the insurance thing if I have my clients sign a waiver form?
