Why Personal Training?

Military veterans are well-placed to succeed as personal trainers. The same qualities are in high demand in both professions—the willingness to push oneself, the ability to motivate others, an unshakable sense of duty, an emphasis on discipline, high levels of physical fitness, and dedication to serving others.


Military veterans and their families sacrifice a great deal for their country. The American Academy of Personal Training (AAPT) values their service. Our gratitude goes beyond words. We’re also dedicated to helping veterans transition to the next phase of their lives. At AAPT, we pay tribute to our nation’s heroes in concrete ways—by offering the best, most renowned military personal training curriculum for former service members who aspire to be personal trainers. If you want to be a leader in your field, AAPT can put you on the path to success.
