Discover why legislation may be changing personal training certification requirements in some states, making a qualified education more crucial than ever before.
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) July 29, 2009 -- Personal training has become a way of life for many in today's fast-paced world of commuting, cube-dwelling and couch sitting since it's a convenient and healthy way to get fit and get those endorphins flowing. As a result, personal training has become one of the fastest growing segments of the health and fitness industry*. But with new regulations developing in the personal training industry, Natural Healers (www.NaturalHealers.com), the Internet's top natural health degree resource, provides up-to-date personal trainer certification standards and state legislation changes to keep its fitness readers and professionals in the know.
According to MSN Health and Fitness, "Unqualified personal trainers are putting your life at risk," and you need to know "how to protect yourself from this emerging national exercise epidemic." There have been many lawsuits over personal trainer negligence and lack of expertise, resulting in stricter personal training certification standards to protect clients, trainers and the gyms and wellness centers that employ trainers. As a result, many personal trainers have to renew certification, and prospective personal trainers have to complete stricter certifications in some states.
Natural Healers provides students and personal trainers with abundant personal training certification and education resources, with a directory of qualified certification schools and information on the developing personal trainer certification legislation changes. "Personal trainers need to be more careful than ever before when choosing their certification program," says Dana Larsen, career researcher for Natural Healers. "There are more state requirement hoops to jump through, and Natural Healers is a great resource that will help save personal trainers both time and money in their personal training certification search. This will, in turn, make them more desirable candidates when it comes time for them to find a job."
