Many personal trainers start off by earning a nationally accredited personal training certification through NESTA’s flexible online program and then realize that they want to pursue fitness further, through a degree program that will offer more income and career growth opportunities. Both organizations help students with a step-by-step success blueprint to building profitable fitness businesses. More information on both programs is available at

We’re thrilled to bring NESTA and Wexford together to help more people enhance their fitness knowledge and credentials.”

In addition, some fitness fans choose to go directly into Wexford University’s associate of arts degree in fitness training program, earning a NESTA Personal Fitness Trainer certification as part of the degree.
