In our Online Virtual Personal Trainer Course you will Master the:
There is a lot more to this course, and we invite you to register to receive more information about the Certification – including launch date, what’s included, and a couple of free tools to help get you started.
Q: Why do we have our own Certification? Why don’t we simply hire trainers with one from the other guys?
A: The Personal Training industry is unregulated. I’ve been interviewing trainers since 2006, and it didn’t take long for me to realize there’s no magic Certification out there which delivers a qualified and strong trainer – one with all the skills and knowledge that Nielsen Fitness values!
Q: So what did you do about it?
A: To solve my frustration I decided to start my own in-house education process, and this evolved into our In-Home Personal Trainer Certification – we called it the Nielsen Fitness Academy. And today it has evolved or I should say pivoted into the Virtual Personal Trainer Certification.
Q: Do you only hire trainers with your Certification?
A: No, and if they don’t have it, I enrol them for free into my course. Because the process works, it transforms a good trainer into a fantastic one!
Q: So how do you take what you know as a teacher of in-home trainers and shift that to Virtual Personal Training?
A: Many of the fundamental skills, including hard skills (the knowledge) and soft skills (interpersonal) are nearly the same. However there are several differences.
Q: Such as?
A: First off the experiential value a client receive is much different – with technology you have many advantages (they can work with you anywhere there is a screen and internet), and also disadvantages (such as you can’t spot, stretch, or help your clients learn how to control their movements with tactical cuing).
Q: Tactical what?
A: You will learn in the course :).
Q: What’s included in the online Virtual Personal Trainer Course?
It is a series of 8 course modules – with video, pictures and written content to learn from. And each round includes a weekly live group coaching session, virtually of course :).
Each module is concluded with a quiz, and the final is administered virtually by Andre Orlando, he’s a major powerhouse behind this course and the Nielsen Fitness Hiring & Development Manager.
Q: Are there any perks?
A: Of course! There are also a lot of perks and bonuses included, such as a small business start-up tool kit – I know a little bit, as I started as a one man show, and have grown it into a business with millions in revenue – not to mention super happy and fit clients :).
Between what I’ve learned from my entrepreneurial experiences and through courses, books and mentorship from highly successful entrepreneurs, I have packaged several fundamental skills and tools as bonus material into this course.
Q: Any tips for aspiring entrepreneurs:
A: I have two of them:
#1 – In business it’s often is what you don’t know you don’t know that can hurt you.
#2 – And when it comes to training a client, it’s often what you don’t know you don’t know that can hurt them. So take this course for them (your clients).
Q: Can you expand a little on that one?
A: Yes – too often I’ve seen poor and unsafe instruction demonstrated by trainers to their clients – in a gym setting or when interviewing a potential trainer – it makes me cringe.
Q: What’s a key take-away you want to leave us with?
A: Free information is often the most costly. So if you want to be the fantastic Personal Trainer – which you know you are destined to be, then take this course!
