There is currently no licensing requirement for fitness experts/personal trainers in Pennsylvania. However, there is a non-profit organization, National Council on Strength and Fitness ("NCSF"), that offers certification program to fitness experts. It is strongly suggested that you get certified before giving people training advice. For more information on the NCSF, click on the link below:
