Wonderful site!

by Karen
(Pennsylvania)

Hi Katie, This is a fantastic site and extremely helpful for both new and experienced trainers. I visit the site several times a week and have downloaded much helpful information.

As far as suggestions, I think any discounts on certification exams, etc. would be extremely helpful as some are very pricey and when you add in study materials, etc. it can add up fast - and in this economy - every dollar makes a difference!

Keep up the good work!!

Thanks for the Education

by Peter Lillyman

Hey Katie this is a super website I am really impressed. I just moved here from Australia where I actually just got certified as a personal trainer. This website has educated me well in the differences of certifications and cost (there are sooo many) thanks

Great Job Katie!!

by Dani
(Lancaster, PA)

I just wanted to say thanks for this sight, I just found it today and have been researching personal training certifications for almost a year. I work fulltime so it hasn't been easy sorting through all the programs you can get certified through. I keep going back and forth about doing this and your site has been a help, Im still on the fence, just not sure if I can make living doing this in my area. I've alway been an avid exerciser and love working out with friends who ask for my help staying slim but have never worked as a fitness prof. Its kind of scary to make move or invest alot of time and money (I dont have alot of either) if Im not sure I can really do this for a living but Im at point in life where I don't want to work in office anymore and they say the key to happiness is to be doing something your passionate about, which I always have been about exercise, but Im still not sure if I can go from office manager to fitness instructor. Im going to keep researching but just wanted to say thanks for the helpful sight. Great job!!!!

I want to help

by Dinos Papoulias
(Silver Springs, MD)

Hi Katie!

Wanted to thank you for starting and supporting this website. I've been active my entire life but have always been a website consultant at heart. Several years ago I got burned out with technology and wanted to use my motivational abilities to help people. Your website is one that has helped me do my training. I started my own website biz in 2000 so I already knew a lot of the business aspects of starting a business (just not the fitness/certification stuff).

So, thank you for helping me. I'd like to become more involved here. Heck, I'd help out with the website if you need any.

Anyway, thats all...thank you. Hope you have a great day!

Good site

by Ensieh
(North Vancouver, BC Canada)

Hi Katie,

My name is Ensieh . I fund your web site today while I was looking to find some personal training resume samples. I am a personal trainer I started this carrier 4 months ago at a gym and I have been very successful by getting more and more happy clients. However it seems I need more challenge than just being at a gym for 8-10 hours a day 5 times a week I’m so energetic and love outdoors. I was kind of uncertain about my decision and very down today until I find your web site. Hay lady, I was on that website for hours, I really need resource since I am new in this career .I just want to say thank you, every thing in this site is really useful and valuable and more, your friendly face gives a shine to the site.



Cheers

Ensieh

This site ROCKS!

by Christine B
(Fallbrook, CA)

Thank you so much for doing this! You are providing very valuable information for people like me preparing for the exam (ACE) and looking forward to a career as a trainer. I hope you are finding ways to get this site out there and known to those who would be interested.

I am thinking of some ideas of stuff to submit as articles for you. I am a writer--though don't get much time to actually write! I'll also plug your site on the ACE message board next time I'm on.

Thanks from Down Under

Hi Katie,

Thanks again, you have put together a great site,
thanks from myself and from all the budding trainers out there! If you are ever interested in starting something up in Australia email me anytime, to me there's a big opening in Australia for supplements, 5lbs of a decent whey protien here runs about $80-$100. Creatine, Nitric, all those things are quite expensive. Also Gyms for quality are very expensive.

Anyway I'm rambling! I'm sure your busy.

Kind Regards,
Matt Roberts
