Should I stick with AFAA, there is a workshop in my area soon, but I get so nervous about the practical part of the test. I know ACE has only the one test, but cost more for premium package and no review workshop. Also I have the 2002 Fitness Theory & Practice and I wonder how much difference there is between the 2002 and the 2010 book?
I am registered to get certified as a GFI with both ACE and AFAA. AFAA seems to be more practically oriented and ACE includes more anatomy. I am going to take the AFAA course in August at the Zumba Conference so I can start looking for work. I have until November to take the ACE test, and can get an extension if necessary. ACE seems to be the gold standard, but I know a lot of people who are only AFAA-certified.
