Aced the ACE!

I'm an American Council on Exercise certified personal trainer!!!! Woohhooo :D

All of this:
finally paid off.

And I don't have to feel like this:
anymore.

   Plus I can get back to blogging, reading and commenting regularly again :)  

  I thought the test was pretty darn hard and I thought my heart was going to come out of my chest as I pressed submit; I really had no idea whether I had passed or not based on the questions.  But I did it!! :D :D :D

  I still have anxiety feelings in my stomach (I finished 1 hour ago) because I was so so nervous before & during the whole test.

  Random fun fact that I noticed while studying the ACE manual:  The names of the people in the case studies were: Phyllis, Stanley, Oscar, Kelly, Jan, Andy, Meredith, David and . . .DWIGHT!  That is no coincidence and I was highly amused by it :D I guess I'm easy to please :)

No Jim though. . .

   I plan to continue studying my Kinesiology and Anatomy at the beach this summer, even though I passed I didn't feel confident enough answering many of those questions.  I'm also thinking of pursuing another cert over the summer, probably NASM.  As well as ACE Lifestyle and Weight Management coach certification.  Ohhh and RRCA running coach cert (just looked it up, cert course in NY on Sept. 10-11th, I'm on it!) :D  

CRAZY excited about all this ish!!

    Need to go workout and get rid of some nervous energy I still have, I should be posting more now that I'm not studying during every available hour.

congrats Katie!!
I felt the same way after I passed the NASM test. I had NO idea if I had passed or not. It was a really weird feeling not knowing because you usually know, right? I did shitty or I did well. You have a feeling.
This test I had NO CLUE what the outcome would be.

I'm glad we both passed :D

Congratulations! Do you think you'll be an online trainer, one on one trainer in your area, or try to get a job at a gym? Maybe combination? Just wondering.

Nice work, I really hope it pays off, and the clients are soon lining up out the door.

I did a level one middle distance course a long time ago, and could have level 2 and 3 as well, but I'm not making money out of my coaching so I never did any extra course.
So when do you start 'working'?

Keri said...
