What Should You Do After Being CPT Certified?

There are many certifications out there, which further makes choosing the one that is best for you. Once you have your basic CPT certification, you need to start thinking about choosing a specialty. This will not only help you gain more knowledge of your interests but also help you earn a higher salary. All in all, by opting for such specializations, you can take your career to the next level. Here mentioned are a few of the most common specializations you can consider choosing:

  1. Corrective Exercise:

The most popular specialization program personal trainers sign up for is the NASM’s Corrective Exercise Specialist program, more popularly known as NASM-CES. This program further offers a more thorough understanding of how to assess fitness. By attending this program, you can help your client’s better mobility and strength with the Corrective Exercise Continuum (CEx). CEx is an easy yet highly efficient process that personal trainers can use on athletes to improve and subsequently correct movement issues.

  1. Performance Enhancement:

If you are more inclined to develop speed, power, and agility for your fitness-driven clients, you should choose the NASM Performance Enhancement Specialist (NASM-PES) certification program. With this certification at hand, you can work with athletes who want to improve their sports performances while increasing stamina.

  1. Personal training for the elderly:

As you get older, the body’s fluidity of movement can considerably worsen. This makes exercising more vital for this age group than any other. With the advent of medical science, older adults have started realizing how maintaining fitness can be beneficial for their health. It, in turn, has made personal training for the elderly a smart choice. Opting for this comprehensive course also provides discounts for many exams, such as the American Senior Fitness Association (SFA) or the Aquatic Exercise Association (AEA).

  1. Fitness Business Management:

This program is best suited for you to become an independent operator or health-club manager. It provides knowledge about strategy, how to maintain customer relations and marketing, and a couple of other fields in the curriculum designed by IDEA Health and Fitness Association.

Final Lines

As you spend more time being a personal trainer, you will figure out many career options you can choose from. You should try getting these certifications from recognized organizations that are well-known and reputed in the industry. Rest assured, before choosing a certain program, just think of what you are interested in and how you want to help your clients. Following your passions will surely lead to a more rewarding and fulfilling career.
