    Default Studying personal training or info on becoming a personal trainer

    Just seeing if I can get some opinions on what course to study. I am wanting to run my own exercise classes in parks, gyms, halls, etc. which certificate would i need to do? As I noticed there are different levels.

    Any recommendations for places to study through? I have googled and there a lot to choose from but I can only study online.

    Also what are the general costs?

    Any insight you have will be very helpful as I start my research.

    I don't know the specifics sorry, but DH went through MAX Fitness College in at Bowen Hills (he's taking a break at the moment). It's a fitness qualification coupled with a business diploma so you've got some business smarts when you start up your own business. DH hasn't finished yet but one of his friends from there has started a very successful business and is doing amazing things. From what I understand the team there are very motivated and want everyone to succeed.

    I know DH has looked in to running boot camps in parks etc and I don't think you HAVE to have a permit, but if someone does have a permit for a particular space, then basically you can't run your sessions there. So that side of it would be worth looking in to. Good luck!
