Missouri Personal Trainer Schools - MO

Get Educated - Campus or Online College?

Because personal trainers often work as contractors, they must be very independent and may not have mentors like others in health and wellness careers. For this reason, it's all the more important to get the most out of the Missouri personal training courses you attend that are designed to license personal trainers in this state.

One of the biggest advantages of pursuing a career in personal training is that it doesn't take long to complete required coursework and obtain the necessary licenses to begin working. There is a challenge in Missouri, however, that there are only a few educational programs available to aspiring personal trainers, so many are required either to travel to major metropolitan areas or study online instead.

Kansas City boasts two schools offering personal training degrees: Heritage Education and the Pinnacle Career Institute. And, although there are no programs currently in St. Louis (Missouri's second largest metropolis) Bryan College in Springfield has a very highly regarded program.

All programs last from six to 14 months depending on the level of specialty. For example, some personal training programs also include massage and physical therapy as well as sports as a business, office skills and other courses that can help you make a living as a personal trainer. As is true for nearly all educational pursuits, the more advanced the degree or the level of specialization, the better prepared a prospect will be for their career and the more desirable a candidate he or she will be. The ability to negotiate higher salary/rates goes hand in hand with this desirability.

Through campus based and online programs, aspiring Personal Trainers in Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield and Independence, Missouri may be able to prepare themselves for the possibility of employment in some of the largest hospitals and healthcare facilities in the state including the St. Johns Mercy Medical Center, St. Anthony’s Medical Center, Barnes Jewish Hospital and Missouri Baptist Medical Center.
