I was previously certified in cheap online personal training certification. It was terrible how easy it was. Since then I’ve realized the importance of having the right credentials and am getting certified online through AFAA. I would love some general advice about focal points. For example, do I really need to know the metabolic processes my heart? Any advice would be much appreciated!
I would advise you to be serious in your preparation. When you are studying, keep in mind that this something that you want to do. Ask your self, “Have I really put in my best effort for this exam?” IF the answer is yes, then take the exam and take it with the attitude that you are ready. Being nervous is a waste of time and mental energy. If you answered yes to that question, then you should be ready to kick some serious test butt.
And then, once you are certified and working with clients, that question changes to, “Have I really put in my best effort for this client?”
Congratulations on choosing to make a difference. I wish you all the success you can handle.
