PROPTA / The Private Trainers Association

I like your site, it is very informative, but I noticed something that is missing. You talk about certifications and you give your opinion and you have mentioned most of the major ones that are accredited? but you have never mentioned the Private Trainers Association.
They have been around since 1980 and they have the World Best athletes teaching, they are also World Wide in countries that most other or even none others exist.
I just finish a study program by the Private Trainers Association, I do hold other certification like the ISSA, AFAA, NASM, and I thought I was the man, until I attended the Academy program over in Los Angeles, I felt I was starting over, I have learned in six weeks more than I have learn in the past 15 years of training. The info is incredible and the practical is nothing like I have experienced before, I thought I really knew how to workout, but when I observed the PROS, I was in confusion, it is a science, and I have never ever knew that.
So what I am saying here, do some homework and check them out. they are the real thing, real people and they care about the trainer.
I will be going back to get re-certified by the PROPTA again in 2 years. So GLAD my money did not go to waste like before. Don't take my word, go check them out.
just a wise word of mouth!!!
