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 have always liked to check out what different certifiying organizations are doing and how they present and approach their material. I do like the ease of renewing my two certifications with ACE. And I do like what ACE is doing in our industry. I would recommend having at least one certification from ACE. It does have wide acceptance in the industry. And I would recommend having at least a group cert and a personal trainer cert.
