If you wanna be a personal trainer...

by Tiffany

ACTION is totally worth reading! I read it (didn't test over it though) before I got started with NASM, and as much as I love NASM, I liked the way ACTION was easier to understand...(in my opinion). By the time I started on NASM, it was a piece of cake.

It might be free but its good info! I read most of the same stuff in my NASM text.

As far as getting a job with an ACTION's not ncca accredited, so basically pointless to the job industry.

New NCCA Accreditation Standards exam
by: Rebecca

Hi Tiffany

Glad you like the program. I am a customer service rep for ACTION and noticed your post.

While I agree with almost everything you mentioned, there are two things you might not be aware of.

1. ACTION Certification released our exam built to NCCA Accreditation standards in September 2011. The exam is available at over 250 PSI/Lasergrade testing centers across the U.S. and Canada

2. We have ACTION Certified Personal trainers working in every major gym chain and countless independent locations. You should read some of the testimonials on our site from students that talk about getting their first job as a personal trainer.

Getting a job in a tight economy will always be a challenge. But if you are relying on a piece of paper (your certificate) to get the job for you, you will likely fail.

Instead, we teach our students that it is their knowledge and experience that is going to get them the job. And specifically, how that knowledge and experience will benefit the hiring manager directly. Using this approach, you can easily overcome the manager's personal preference or favorite certification.

Thanks for reading,

ACTION materials rocks!
by: Anonymous

I passed ACSM using the the quiz material from this site and the ACSM books. However, after passing the ACSM exam, I purchased the affordable ACTION pro plan and I have not been disappointed!

Their videos are awesome! As a newby to the fitness industry, the ACTION videos give my learning a real world flavor that is hard to find when just studying a textbook. It is sooo helpful to hear a professional trainer explain and elaborate on the topics.

Someday I might take the ACTION exam, but for now I am satisfied with the extra reinforcement I get from the ACTION materials.
