    Agreed.

    Granted, most of my experience with NASM trainers is through 24 Hour Fitness--a gym that I actually really appreciate--and almost all of their trainers are all about the NASM and they are...

    A valid question I guess, but I don't have to have looked at other certs' materials to know that the NSCA both offers great material and is intensive. The increase in my knowledge is proof enough of...

    Thanks for the input. That does sound like an insanely good deal. Did they refer clients to you at all or was that totally up to you?

    BTW, I noticed that you're NSCA-CPT certified. How difficult...

  • If you're going to work at a chain gym, which should it be?

    In all my time lurking on this board I've noticed that you consistently give the least helpful replies. I've also noticed that you apparently think you know everything about everything.

    Well one thing I can tell you is that trainers aren't scientists. They have to get their information second hand from the research that scientists are doing. So you're only as good as your source.
