Question about PT courses for women
My wife is currently undertaking a pilates teacher training course and has just passed her beginner level course.
she is also interested in taking on a personal trainer course to add to her reume. She is an accomplished climber and wants to be able to take cliients to our local climbing gym and basically use all the facilities.
Are there any courses that are suitable for her?
do any courses combine nutrition teaching as well?
Any help would be appreciated

Hey Fellow Trainers.
So I had a question and wanted to get suggestions from other trainers. I am currently deciding where I need to take my personal training career. I have worked with many clients who have seen great results, but I have a certification that is not well known. NESTA. I was thinking about going after my ACE or something with more name recognition.
I have plenty of clients so I am wondering if I even need to change anything at all. I am young -> 22 and also have fitness modeling aspirations. I am open to a lot of different possibilities at this point.
Any suggestions from QUALIFIED individuals would be great!

I will be graduating at the end of this year with a degree in Exercise Science and one option I am looking into is ACSM's Health Fitness Specialist or Clinical Exercise Specialist. Does anyone work in a hospital as an exercise specialist? I am mainly wondering what the job market is like because you don't hear much about it. Does anyone have any more information on these 2 career paths and what the major differences are? ThanksHappiness lies first of all in health.

Hey Alan ( I hope you get to read this soon because I really wanted advice from you). I love the thread and the info you've included.
I'm an ex-law student in Pakistan and I do have a good (if brief) idea of nutrition and training because of what all I've put my body through. I'm currently on a cut after a bulk.
Anyway, there is no nutrition related course or program or school here and I'm still very interested in getting to know as much as I can about the field. Other than online courses and websites, can you tell me where it would be possible for me to find such material and if there's any hope for someone who does not have a degree in the field of nutrition/training.
Do respond or PM me if possible please.

Good Info - Titles vs Real World Experience
Nice. I'm newly a fan of Anthony Colpo. Thanks for sharing this detailed info in your blog.
Re: Paper title vs Trainers - If people aren't Cut for the job, then it doesn't matter what alphabet soup comes after their name. Knowledge is power, but experience is key!
In a different industry that's also based on individual entrepreneurship: I've met Realtors with a string of credentials who were afraid to call a lead, and veteran Realtors who dominate their market with no extra titles.

I don't know if anyone else mentioned this as their are 11 pages, but the only question I ever missed on the practice test was about the movement assessment. If you look at the pictures where overactive muscles are red (pg. 122, third edition) it doesn't match up with the chart on the next page. I was always used to reading and memorizing in one go. I wasn't sure why I couldn't ingrain the right answer in my head until I realized I had memorized the book, but I had memorized both the right an wrong answers, because they were both in the book. The PICTURE is RIGHT and the CHART is WRONG. Feet turning out is a sign of a tight MEDIAL gastrocnemius (of course if they could both be overactive as well). If i remember correctly I also correcting the spelling of navicular a couple times as it missed spellcheck, but other than that if you know the book the test is simple.
