FAQ

Do I have to have experience as a trainer to apply?

Not necessarily! While we prefer trainers that have experience, we also look for individuals that have a passion for fitness, and the work ethic to build a business.

Do I have to have my CPT before I can start the process?

We require all trainers to have a current CPT certificate or be scheduled to test for their CPT prior to the signing of a contract.

What types of certifications do I need to become a CG Trainer?

We require all trainers to have current certifications. Camp Gladiator recognizes the following certifications: Academy of Applied Personal Training Education (AAPTE), Action Personal Trainer Certification (ACTION), American Council on Exercise (ACE), National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), National Federation of Personal Trainers (NFPT), National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association (NESTA), International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), National Exercise Trainers Association (NETA) and National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF), National Council for Certified Personal Trainers (NCCPT), International Fitness Professional Association (IFPA), The Cooper Institute (COOPER), Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), National Personal Training Institute (NPTI), PTA Global (PTA), Personal Training Certification Schools (PFTA) and World Instructor Training Schools (WITS).

I have a degree in this field, am I still required to have a CPT?

Yes. We require the same standards for all potential trainers regardless of background.

Is Camp Gladiator a full-time opportunity?

All Camp Gladiator trainers are Independent Contractors and most of our Primary Trainers choose to pursue this opportunity in a full-time capacity. The fantastic thing about working as an Independent Contractor is the flexibility to maintain other endeavors such as personal training in conjunction with the CG Platform.

Does Camp Gladiator provide CG Trainers with workouts and equipment?

Since our trainers are the best of the best, we encourage them to be creative and come up with their own workouts. However, CG does provide sample workouts and trainers share new ideas to keep things fresh. All workouts also have an overall theme that relates to the CG 4-Week Cycle. In terms of equipment, since CG trainers are Independent Contractors, they purchase their own equipment for workouts.

What benefits does Camp Gladiator provide to CG Trainers?

Camp Gladiator provides an opportunity that is unmatched in the fitness industry in addition to its amazing platform of behind the scenes support. We also host bi-annual meetings that provide our trainer force with approved continuing education units for their CPTs with nationally accredited organizations. The Camp Gladiator brand is unparalleled and provides its Independent Contractors with instant recognition and credibility. CG Trainers work together using the CG Platform to collaborate, share ideas and best practices, and grow as a fitness professional.

Do you offer franchise opportunities?

Camp Gladiator is not a franchise.
