The official NASM CES study guide thread

I find this to be much more difficult than the CPT, yet we can take the test at home on our computers, open book unlike the CPT.

Can You Negotiate Fees with Personal Trainers

Looking for some input from PTs.... I currently workout with a trainer that owns his own independent training facility (not really a gym, but he does 1/1 training). I've been a loyal customer for over a year now and I really enjoy going there. Would it be rude to ask for a discount? I'm...

Hello all my fellow personal trainers. How do you feel when a new (potential) client has NEVER worked out a day in their life, needs your help, but cannot afford 1 session let alone 10 or 20 for an effective package. I experienced this many times in the past and am curious how you would handle...

How many training sessions do you work per week?

Hi, I'm doing a bit of research. My assumption is that the average trainer is doing about 15-25 sessions per week. How many do you do? Are you trying to currently do more sessions than you currently do? Are you exactly where you'd like to be? Are you purposely doing part-time?

body fat calipers. 4-site or 7-site?

I typically use the 4-site body fat caliper test on my clients. However this evening I've been playing around with the 7-site test. On me there was a huge difference.
