Ok so I have just gotten my CPT through NASM and I want to keep the momentum going on my learning. For those on the NASM track, which specializations are the best ones regarding information and value?
Looking at the list you should be able to see that the prices are comparable to the entry CPT price so I want to make the best informed decisions. Any information regarding your experience with these especially the Senior Fitness Specialist and Corrective Exercise packages would be great.

Look into the CES. Im studying for it right now and it is awesome. A majority of the people you will train (and who can afford a trainer) are older and usually female. Usually that is just the way it is and almost everyone will have some pain or past injury. The CES will really help prepare you for this and it will help set you apart. Also if you think about it most athletes will become injured at some time in their career as well. It is a very valuable certification in my opinion.Obssession is a word lazy people use to describe dedication.
If your not nervous before going to the gym your probably not working out hard enough (my new favorite quote)
B.S. in Exercise and Sports Science
Cooper Functional Trainer Cert.
