Community Job Survey: The median salary of a Personal Trainer is $54,200 per year*. Annual earnings of $100,000 have been reported for the top 10% of trainers. Employment of Fitness Workers is expected to increase 29 percent over the 2008-18 decade, which is much faster than the average of other occupations. These workers are expected to gain jobs because of an increasing number of people spending time and money on fitness and more businesses recognizing the benefits of health and fitness programs for their employees.
Certification: Upon successful completion of the NCCA-accredited credentialing exam graduates earn the distinction as a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) from NASM. Certification is only the beginning. When you become an elite NASM-certified professional, you open the door to numerous career path opportunities.
