Meh. I’m a lifelong athlete and decided I wanted to train so I went online and found the best bang for the buck. I chose ASFA…GOT the Master Trainer Cert..then went out and got the first Trainer job I applied for with one of the biggest fitness chains in the nation. When it comes to training most of the valuable stuff you know comes from having been an athlete and studying on your own. For years. Like me. For knowledge on Sports Science I’ll myself up against any newly minted little ACE or NASM girl who was never a athlete and didn’t spend thousands of hours in the gym like me.
