How do I sign up for certification training?

3 Answers | Asked by Colleen Coco on Jun 30, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jul 01, 2014

Hi Colleen, ACE also has a Senior Fitness specialty. However, they require that you have an NCCA accredited certification to be recognized as a Senior Fitness Specialist. It appears that they would sell it to you, though. https://www.acefitness.org/fitness-certifications/specialty-certificatio......

2 Answers | Asked by Rachel Sedwick on Jun 30, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jun 30, 2014

Hi Rachel, at 2 months after that surgery, I would not change anything. Chances are that her weight loss will pick up again in a short while. It is generally a good idea, though, to modify her routine from time to time and include circuit type training such as the peripheral heart action syste...

Have a client with overdeveloped calves. I would not want to advise any weight training. Any other suggestions?

6 Answers | Asked by Christina Cotsiopoulos on Jun 30, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jun 30, 2014

6 Answers | Asked by Louise Schollaert on Jun 26, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jun 27, 2014

Hi Louise, I would follow Paul's advice and talk to your employer. I have known of cases where trainers were taken to court for violating the non-compete clause, and they did not come out on the winning end of it. An owner of a small business will not be very motivated to take legal action, an...

3 Answers | Asked by Beverly Hosford, MA on Jun 26, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jun 26, 2014
