Athletic and Personal Trainer Degree - Online and Campus Programs

Athletic and personal trainers are on the cutting edge of physical fitness. Athletic and sports trainers not only recognize, evaluate, and assess injuries, but they also prevent, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate muscle and bone conditions. A personal trainer designs workout regimens for those trying to get or stay physically fit. A successful personal trainer must be highly independent and dedicated because they are often their own bosses.
