Accredited Degree Programs for Personal Trainers

 

Accredited and Respected Degree Programs for Fitness Industry Professionals

If you’re looking to get the training you need to begin a career in the personal fitness industry, you will be glad to learn that degrees in exercise science, personal training, exercise physiology, kinesiology, and athletic training are more abundant than ever.

The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) are the recognized accrediting agencies for bachelor’s and graduate-level academic degree programs designed for professionals in the personal fitness industry, from fitness instructors to strength and conditioning coaches to athletic trainers. A bachelors, master’s, or doctoral program accredited though one of these two organizations is sure to meet the highest standards, and will undoubtedly prepare you to be a leader in your field.

However, because program accreditation has not yet become an educational standard required to earn your specialty or general professional certification, just a fraction of the high quality degree programs available in the field are listed on the CAAHEP and CAATE websites. This has created a situation where aspiring personal fitness professionals researching education options, along with existing professionals looking to earn advanced degrees, are largely left to fend for themselves.

Here at PersonalTrainerEDU.org, we decided a solution was long overdue, so we stepped up to provide our visitors with the resource so many in the personal fitness industry have been asking for – an extensive list of schools offering high-quality degree programs in exercise science, kinesiology, personal training, exercise physiology and athletic training.

We’ve organized this guide by state and by degree program so you can easily identify the best options available near you. We will continually update this list with the goal of providing a comprehensive resource that can be used to kickstart or advance a career in the personal fitness industry.
