For the past number of years I've been an educator working for the largest personal training certifications: the American Council on Exercise (ACE) where I helped create a wide variety of education to support how fitness professionals work with their clients, and the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) where I teach online courses for people preparing for the NASM personal trainer certification exam.
