Abstract

Exercise professionals need to have extensive knowledge and technical skills in order to be safe and effective. In Italy and in most of European and non-EU countries, individuals working in exercise settings such health and fitness clubs, were not necessarily required to have specialized education and training in exercise science. However, survey research indicates that a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a professional certification are strong predictors of a professional’s trainer knowledge. Aim of these preliminary study is to compare some non-EU personal trainer certification.
