Mobility Courses for Personal Trainers
If you’re looking for a Mobility Certification, check out our Mobility Instructor Courses below! These courses are internationally recognised and registered with NASM and AFAA so on completion you’ll receive CEUs. Courses are tailored for Fitness Professionals who want to learn more about Mobility and potentially become a Mobility Coach.
HOW DO I BECOME A MOBILITY COACH
To become a mobility coach, you will need to have a strong understanding of human movement and be able to communicate effectively with your clients. Aside from that, you’ll need to obtain a mobility coach certification, which our online courses can assist you with. Once you have these things, you can start your own business or join an existing fitness facility that offers mobility coaching services..
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MOBILITY COACH AND A MOBILITY INSTRUCTOR?
The two terms are often used interchangeably, however a Mobility “Instructor” is usually referring to a Fitness Professional who takes “classes” and a Mobility “Coach” is usually referring to a Fitness Professional who takes personal training clients.
HOW DO YOU COMPLETE A MOBILITY COACH CERTIFICATION COURSE ONLINE?
Once you register for your Mobility course, you will be sent your log in details. You then work through the course at your own pace, watching the videos and reading the materials. At the course there is an assessment (both theory and practical). Once you submit your assessment, allow our team 3 business days to grade your assessment. Assuming your assessment is successful we will also send you over you completion certificate along with your CEUs / CECs. If unsuccessful, you are able to resubmit your assessment free of charge.
HOW MUCH IS A MOBILITY CERTIFICATION
Our Mobility Certification Courses range from $110-$197.

WHY SHOULD A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL COMPLETE A MOBILITY CERTIFICATION COURSE?
A Fitness Professional should complete a Mobility Certification Course if they plan to do the following
- Use Mobility in their own training
- Use Mobility in their Group Fitness classes
- Use Mobility with their Personal Training clients
Mobility Training isn’t covered in depth during your initial Personal Training Certification and therefore chances are you haven’t been trained in how to use Mobility. This can result in the exercises not being performed properly which leads to less benefit and an increased chance of injury.
Completing a Certification ensures that you can both perform the exercises correctly yourself AND coach your clients on how to perform the exercises correctly.
WHY SHOULD A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL COMPLETE A MOBILITY CERTIFICATION NASM RECOGNIZES?
NASM is considered to be a global leader in certifying fitness professionals and has been around for over 30 years. If a course is recognized by NASM – it has gone through a strict accreditation process.
WHY SHOULD A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL COMPLETE AN ONLINE MOBILITY CERTIFICATION COURSE?
There are numerous advantages to completing an online Mobility certification
- You can take as long as you like to complete the course
- You can watch the videos over and over again
- Even after completing the course you log back in and review the course material
