WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ATHLETIC TRAINER AND PERSONAL FITNESS TRAINER?

The main difference between an athletic trainer and a personal fitness trainer is in what setting they are working.

Both trainers work with individuals who are looking to improve their health and fitness level.

Athletic trainers work with other medical providers (e.g. chiropractors and medical doctors) to diagnose, treat, and prevent injuries. Patients receive help from an athletic trainer to rehabilitate muscles and other parts of the body to perform their best. Because they are working in a medical setting to help patients improve health outcomes, they must be licensed and complete continuing education on an on-going basis.

Personal fitness trainers may be certified by a third-party organization, but they are not required to have any certifications or be licensed.
