I am trying to finish up a home study course for a personal trainer certification. I want to have that as something to fall back on.
I am done with all the parts except the 2 interviews of cert.personal trainers that can be done through e-mail. Any certified personal trainers out there that can help me? I just need to ask them 7 questions. Thanks.

I was once told that my U.S.A. Weightlifting Club Coach Certification was not from a "nationally recognized organization".

:rofl:

It's funny Lincoln. You probably ran into some "muscleheads" who didn't know any better. For my purposes I need someone with ACE, NSCA, NASM, ACSM, ISSA or the like. After I embraced the Crossfit philosophy, I am not sure I want to work in a commercial "fitness" center and show people how to do bicep curls and leg extensions. However, since I started the process of certification, I want to finish it. Maybe I can add it to my list of credentials later, when it's time to organize Crossfit Midwest. Who knows? So, any personal trainers out there willing to help?

George-
Feel free to shoot me an email and dont forget to be creative when training your clients! You can sneak a bunch of Crossfit into comercial fitness situations. You will be drowning in clients because your folks will love thier training and get results.

I am an NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and a Certified personal trainer with a Master's in HHP. Shoot me the e-mail if you still need assistance, I would love to help.
