Thanks for the input to all of you. I have already been in the Group fitness industry almost 15 years first certified by NDEITA and then AFAA and MAD DOG with some workshops through FiTour. I teach Tabata style classes, bootcamp, Pilates, SPIN, Senior Strength, I am a Personal Trainer and I’m a Running Coach for kids. I asked about the move from AFAA because it seems there’s no connection between them and IDEA and I’d like to apply my CEUs from Idea to maintain my certifications. Also I’ve taken just about every course I am interested in eAFAA and I like learning from other sources.
We are military and move frequently and while I agree that it’s more about the passion and energy you put into your clients and classes, every gym has different requirements for which certifications they accept from their trainers and GroupX so maintaining certifications from well established organizations is extremely important when I’m in a competitive area.
ACE seems to have advance courses which interest me very much so I will look into their programs. Seems most people I talk to feel the same way about ACE.
Thanks again for our input….
