Reasons Why Trainers Not Affiliated With ASU are Prohibited from Personal Training:
In the State of Arizona, no regulations exist regarding the profession of personal training. This lack of regulation causes many underqualified or uneducated "trainers" to claim the title of "personal trainer." Due to liability issues and other reasons listed below, Sun Devil Fitness requires all trainers working within the building to maintain certification through a nationally recognized organization and meet specific academic requirements essential for quality personal training. We uphold this strict criteria for trainers in an effort to ensure that the personal training program remains a quality service on the cutting edge of this field.
Personal training for our purposes is defined as one-on-one fitness instruction to another individual.
