Just passed the AFAA Online (written portion) Personal Trainer Exam

I could not have done this without Katie's Exam Prep Course. It really made everything come together for me.

The AFAA exam mostly covers Joint Actions, Anatomy, Fitness Assessment, Legal Responsibilities, one question on HRR, and several questions on risk factor classification. Review Kinesiology and Physiology right before the exam and you will be okay.

There was not as much math as I expected, but one question comes to mind regarding fat calories.. Know there are 9 fat calories per gram of fat.

If you purchase Katie's exam prep course, complete it to where you are scoring 90-100%, you should pass the AFAA PT course.

The AFAA course is challenging, but use common sense and select the "most safe" answer. If it gives you the option to refer to a physician, I'd select that answer.

Read each question carefully and use process of elimination and common sense to answer. If fitness is your passion, most of this will make sense to you. If you are in it just for the money, you will bomb with flying colors...

Glad the course helped
by: Katie - Admin

I am gratified that so many have benefited from the course. But I find the people who are willing to put in the work do much better than those who are looking for a shortcut.

The course is here:

good luck,

AFAA / NASM Personal Trainer DVD
by: Anonymous

I am considering going for AFAA Personal Trainer Certification and wanted to know if anyone has ordered the AFAA Personal Trainer Assessment DVD? Is it good- detailed? Is it worth purchasing? Would REALLY APPRECIATE anyone's feedback... FYI - the NASM DVD is TOTALLY worth the purchase!

Being a certified personal trainer should not be about guessing answers
by: Michelle

The information on this website has helped me to decide to do the online AFAA personal training program. Based on other comments I feel like the exam will be challenging and that's what I want. I am glad that Katie made a comment regarding putting in hard work to pass the exam. Because who deserves a personal trainer who is just guessing at answers?? Nobody! I want to become a certified personal trainer so that I will have the knowledge, skills and abilities to help people achieve their fitness goals, not just to have additional credentials.

Thanks Katie!
