NASM PES or ACE's Sport Conditioning Specialist...I'm torn and the PES is so expensive

6 Answers | Asked by Darcy Broadbent on May 14, 2015

Answered by Paul Thomas on May 16, 2015

Hi Darcy, I just checked out your IDEA profile - it looks like you're pretty qualified already to do sport conditioning. Why pay for another certification (that clients don't care about) which you most likely don't need? You should be good to go as it stands now. Paul Thomas www.homeworkou...

12 Answers | Asked by Samantha Kellgren on May 10, 2015

Answered by Paul Thomas on May 11, 2015

Hi Samantha, Every workout I write out for a client is done in a Word file. As yes, I keep them forever. When they ask me for a new one, I just go back & update the previous one. It's easy to include illustrations of each exercise - just search the exercise & hit images - a million come up. T...

6 Answers | Asked by sidhant sethi on May 08, 2015

Answered by Paul Thomas on May 08, 2015

Hi Sidhant, No - don't worry. You're at a perfect age to be strength training - nothing will affect your height. When you say "hanging," do you mean that you're hanging upside down? If that's the case, you don't need to be doing that. You need to get some good advice and instruction on workin...

Answered by Paul Thomas on May 08, 2015

Hi Mohammed, When deciding on a business name, you just have to make sure that it's available to use and won't be confused with another company that offers similar services. You need to do a search on that. You're usually safe using your own name for a business name, but in your case, there mig...

11 Answers | Asked by Kimberly Hawkinson-Hellyar on May 06, 2015

Answered by Paul Thomas on May 07, 2015

Hi Kimberly, I'm with Karin on this one - the actual training on acclimating your client to use a walker should be conducted by a PT or an OT. Once they’re comfortable with getting around, he/she should be ready for some training. First off, I would get input from both their Physician & P...

What are recommendations for kids to be unsupervised in a gym area?

8 Answers | Asked by Pam Owens on May 05, 2015

Answered by Paul Thomas on May 05, 2015

Hi Pam, Good question but I don't think you can attach an age to that. It all depends on one's level of experience with training. I'd be more comfortable with a 15 year old kid who's been training for 2 years while well-supervised versus a 40 year old novice on their own. But to answer your qu...

4 Answers | Asked by Missy FitzSimons on May 03, 2015

Answered by Paul Thomas on May 05, 2015

Hi Missy, If you want to specialize in training athletes, I highly recommend the CSCS certification from the NSCA.
