Cool - I forgot to answer about the NSCA-CPT. It's the National Sports Conditioning Association - Certified Personal Trainer.
There are lots of personal trainer certs out there (ACE, IFPA, NSCA, National/regional ones), but the NSCA is the most comprehensive, difficult one around. It's also recognized worldwide. You study for the exam for what seems like forever, and then go write it at specified sitting each year. It's very hard to pass, and it's like 3 hrs long.
My goal is to use my nursing and personal training for cardiac rehabilitation and helping unwell clients to get started being fit/nutritious, but my MAIN goal is to train and prepare competitors. So along with the nursing, studying for the NSCA, I'm also getting my provincial personal training cert. I find that while the NSCA is most prestigious and 'better', many local gyms still want you to have the provincial certification... so I'm doing both.
My hubbie is american, so if I ever want to go live/work in the states, the NSCA is recognized everywhere, whereas my provincial one wouldn't be. So it's a win/win.
Hope that explained it better.
