Yeah Me!

To all of you waiting anxiously to hear the results of my personal training exam….


I passed the National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Personal Trainer examination and am now, as the exam title alludes, a cerified personal trainer.

The test is for those with a bachelor’s or associate’s in a related field, like physiology, sports science, etc. They said that if you don’t have such a background, buy about $300 worth of exam prep materials (videos, practice tests, etc) and give it a shot anyway. I bought the main text and just read and re-read and I passed!

Now whether this certification will lead to employment is unclear, but there is nothing wrong with having something like this in your back pocket. Remember that I’m a firm believer that one should not do something in the hope for money. That’s crude. You do it for braging rights. And being ”an interesting person.”
