I went with the whole APTE package. It’s crazy expensive but I definitely feel it was worth it. After I passed the exam, they placed me in a local gym for the Associate Personal Training Experience. I learned a lot and I’m glad I did it. The Personal Fitness workshop was helpful as well. You can always go with one of the less expensive packages and add stuff on later if you feel you need it. I would recommend doing the eTeach course, however. It keeps you accountable and you also get a guarantee for passing the exam and I think a job guarantee as well. They do have occasional sales so you might want to wait instead of paying full price. Just sign up for their email newsletter and they will send you their promotions. They also have payment plans to make it a little easier.
