Our personal trainers have to meet high standards of excellence in exercise physiology, nutrition, anatomy, training program development, exercise application, health screening, and fitness assessments. But most importantly, we expect our personal trainers to excel at applying their certifications, knowledge, and fitness experience to all walks of life, from student athletes to senior citizens.
Gold’s Gym requires that anyone who seeks employment as a personal trainer must have a CURRENT Personal Training Certificate from a nationally recognized agency (NASM, NCCPT, ACE, or ACSM) preferred. After being hired, you have 90 days to obtain a certification from one of the four agencies.
Gold’s Gym will also accept applications for personal training from those who might not have certification, but have a four-year degree in an exercise-related field. However, the same rules apply and successful applicants need to get certified within 90 days of employment with one of the four nationally recognized agencies. Although there is no in-house certification at Gold’s Gym, we are partners with the NCCPT and can help you get credentials to become certified through the NCCPT www.smartfitness.com along with many other industry must CEU’s such as cross-training programs, coaching guides, sales training, and personal training manuals for new employees. Continuing education also is necessary to maintain your credentials throughout your personal training career.
