This fall Vatterott College is adding a Personal Fitness Trainer Diploma program in St. Louis to its educational offerings. Students enrolled in this program will receive training through hands-on and one-on-one experience with instructors who are professional personal fitness trainers. The 50-week Personal Fitness Trainer Diploma program begins every 10 weeks at 9200 Olive Blvd.
Students will be trained to perform a variety of exercises, assessments and tests for their potential clients. This personal trainer program in St. Louis teaches careful and effective fitness training, implementation of safe and effective weight loss/gain programs and proficiency in business-related skills. All students receive certification in CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), AED (automated external defibrillators), and preparation for taking the NASM-CPT (certified personal trainer exam offered by the National Academy of Sports Medicine Association).
Students gain knowledge not only in the gym but also in a classroom environment by studying anatomy and physiology, personal wellness, nutrition, and exercise psychology and physiology. Graduates will be able to seek employment as personal trainers in gyms, fitness centers, private studios, corporate wellness programs or use the knowledge they have gained as a jumpstart towards opening their own personal fitness facility.
“Personal fitness is a growing career field,” says Pam Bell, Chief Executive Officer and President of Vatterott College. “According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of personal fitness trainers is expected to grow 24% over the next decade. More and more we see our students encouraging us to offer a program in the fitness field. With today’s obesity rates climbing, this is the perfect time to introduce this program so that our students can make a difference in the quality of life of others.”
