Simon, my dog, thanks u for the compliment!
As for the Personal Training, I went to the National Personal Training Institute... they have them all over the country. It's an awesome program, tho rather expensive. But it's worth it, for it's a lot more comprhensive and practical than those on-line certs (like ACE). NPTI is a 6m program where graduates receive a diploma and cert in PT and Nutritional Counseling. The day is divided into 2 parts: 2.5 hours of lecture and 2.5 hours of practical experience training actual clients. So, u leave the program with over 200 hours of Personal Training experience. Check out their website if u want more info.... I highly recommend it!
Due to school (I'm trying to get into a nursing program), I took a break from PT for now, but I did apply to Cardinal Fitness and it looks like I'll be hired soon. Not only that, but the manager hinted at the possibility of me becoming the Head Training! How cool is that?!
) It's Independent Contracting there, but they take 30% of what I charge. So, i'm employed by them, but at the same time, I'm not... kinda confusing, isn't it?
Thats awesome that u are studying to be a teacher! What do u want to teach? Are u almost done with school?
