Do We Need More Certifications

I wrote this last week for the Perform Better Newsletter

“The past five years has seen a large rise in certification courses in the fitness industry. All kinds of fitness companies are jumping on the certification band wagon. You can get certified in any number of things by an ever-increasing number of groups.

This leads us back to the question in the title. Do we need more certifications? My answer is no, we don’t need more certifications. I’m sure you think that’s a strange response as Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning has just launched the Certified Functional Strength Coach certification. To be honest, I don’t think we need more certification courses, we just need better certification courses.”

  1. Amen! I could not agree more. Lots of acronyms but too little practical skill. People realized that cert courses could be money makers and we lost our way in a sense.

    Still lots of good certs out there and the cream shall rise to the top. I’ll be attending in the coming months.
