Jan. 18, 2010 - PRLog -- Now is a great time to be a Fitness Professional. According to the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau publication Occupational Outlook Handbook, overall employment for personal trainers is expected to increase 44% from 2002 to 2012. In addition, baby boomers will start retiring in 2011, and there will be an increased demand for qualified trainers to help them stay active and healthy.

Educational Fitness Solutions, creator of the online Certificate Programs in Nutrition, Fitness, and Health in partnership with accredited colleges and universities nationwide, has the following Online Certificates available for Spring registration:
