Which is more valuable a Bachelor's degree or specialized certifications?

17 Answers | Asked by Patricia Slauson-Marcussen on Apr 08, 2013

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

I agree with those who suggest that a college degree holds a lot of weight. Specific certifications on top of that add to your credibility and to your commitment to your profession. Certifications without a degree bring in a question mark.

Ok silly question but which CPT program is the best or more widely recognized ?

9 Answers | Asked by Kerri WIlson on Jan 06, 2016

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

Karin's answer is right on. I agree that ACSM, ACE and NASM are widely recognized, deservedly so. Your signature will not be the initials behind your name, but will be your character as a personal trainer, in the gym and beyond. Take care.

I'm looking for an attorney to go over my liability forms for PT (online and in person). What seems like a reasonable fee?

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

In my experience and in conversation $150-250/hr is typical. If you're give a flat rate it's up to you to determine if the cost/benefit ratio makes sense. Good luck

Opinion on ACE vs ACSM????

18 Answers | Asked by Madeline Williams on Jun 21, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

ACE and ACSM are both well-respected certifying bodies. If your intentions are to work individually, or in a fitness center environment either certification is well accepted. If your intention is to work in a clinical environment (hospital, clinic, research) ACSM is perhaps the more appropriate ch...

ACSM, ACE, NASM are Nationally Recognized Respectable Organizations. Does the Cross Fit Certification hold the same standards?

28 Answers | Asked by Sue D'Alonzo on Sep 12, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

Many good answers. Certification does not a trainer make. I think Cross-fit for the highly trained, very fit individual could be an enjoyable break in his/her workout routine. It's certainly not for the untrained, or even moderately trained. Certification suggests education, not practice.

CrossFit: What is your opinion on it?

14 Answers | Asked by The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon on Jan 02, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

Good answers. It's only for the very fit and highly trained. It's certainly not for the untrained. High load, high intensity, perhaps a nice break in the training routine for a very well conditioned individual.

Ok, give me the low down on Cross Fit. What I've seen, heard, and read about I would never support!

8 Answers | Asked by Priscilla Moore on May 31, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

Interesting answers. I think that for a very well-trained, fit individual it might be an interesting break in the workout routine. It's not for the untrained, or even moderately trained, but it is certainly challenging.

Have you seen the CrossFit Video that many pros are upset about?

23 Answers | Asked by Laura Myers on Dec 19, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

I certainly wouldn't recommend it. I agree with most of the responses. Too intense and not well designed nor choreographed. As Sue suggests, what's the point?

pros and cons for isogenics?

9 Answers | Asked by Larry Perlmutter on Oct 21, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

All good and interesting answers. You can buy carrots, potatoes and beets at the grocer. I am generally not an advocate of an eating plan that promises financial gain as an incentive. It's not necessary and may be deleterious in the long-run. Take care.

Have any fit pros hired a business coach?

9 Answers | Asked by Jennifer Cavallaro on Jan 04, 2016

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jan 06, 2016

It would certainly be worth considering. With the complexity of business issues and the lack of time many of us have to investigate, a business consultant may well be worth the investment. Take care.
