Getting ACE Certified

I have always wanted to pursue a certification in Personal Training, however, due to other educational obligations, I've had to put that aside. I am now ready to pursue a certification in Personal Training and have heard that ACE is best for those like me (no experience in the field).

Should I go for it or do you think I should do some more research. I work full time and have not other obligations besides my M-F 9-5 job. I think I have a lot of time in my hands and would be able to complete the study program within the recommended 4 -6 mos timeframe.

My other question is...do you recommend attending the workshop?

Thank you for your time, Great website. Thank you for providing so much of this information.

I'm actually in the same boat as you. I grew up playing sports, a bit out of shape right now from a slight knee injury, but I'm in the gym like 4-5 times a week to get back where I need to be.

I am not sure how ACE's program compares to AFAA? Besides the obvious, more nationally recognized etc., I am interested in the actual program and will it make me an effective teacher of a class. I am interested in group fitness (such as step, kickboxing etc) and wasn't sure which path would be best?

I have college degrees (BA in Communications and MBA) but not in the fitness field and science is not my strongest subject but I am willing to put in the necessary studying for it. Any recommendations/suggestions for me would be awesome!

(P.S. Waiting for my money from taxes to come in and I'm ready to do this asap :) This website is quite informative and thank you Katie for it!
