I am not opposed to learning, but people attending the conferences walk out with CECs.

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 21, 2013

That is true, and it does not seem fair. But I still maintain that you are the winner after all because none of the attendees will have your depth of knowledge, and that is still a very positive outcome for you.

Has anyone taken the NASM Fitness Nutrition Specialist exam??

5 Answers | Asked by Rachel Koester on Jan 21, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 21, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 21, 2013

9 Answers | Asked by Lawrence with Gym Insight on Jan 19, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 19, 2013

If I were a member at a gym where I had signed such clause but it had not been implemented for 3 years, I would be EXTREMELY (could not make it bold) unhappy if I was all of a sudden charged with an extr...
