You’ll also find important information on the certifications offered by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, American College of Sports Medicine, American Council on Exercise, Cooper Institute for Aerobics Research, and National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Part II helps you avoid common business mistakes, describing how to create, market, and manage a personal training enterprise.
Part III offers techniques for becoming an effective personal trainer.
