    PERSONAL TRAINING study materials....WILL YOU HELP A BROTHER OUT!


    Hey guys, I am looking to get a job here in Mahattan and I want to get my personal training cert from an accredited certification. My only problem is that I don't have any incoming source of money to pay for materials, testing, etc. I know most certs are just a foot in the door and that experience is the best teacher, but I have been training people for years uncertified and getting them great results. This new gym is opening up soon and the bills are stacking up as well as the student loans. WOULD ANYONE HERE BE WILLING TO DONATE ANY RECENT STUDY MATERIALS THEY HAVE GOTTEN? IF NOT DONATE IS THERE A CHANCE OF SETTLING FOR A SMALL FEE? Again remember I am coming here because I just do not have the money for everything that is required and do not want some BS cert.
    I am looking for any NBFE accredited certification, pretty much any of the big name certs such as.... (the top four being the ones I am most looking after)
    ACE
    ISSA
    NSCA
    NASM
    IFPA
    AFPA
    AFTA
    NCSF
    ACSM

    It isn't going to help much bro, because, they still charge the same amount for the test. They basically make you buy the books, etc, too (unfortunately).

    honestly, Atlas, I don't see myself parting w/ the materials I have (the book & the videos, anyway - the rest is essentially worthless, can't see what use you could make out of it) - I expect I'll be using them for reference.

    The total cost of ALL the materials including a 2-day workshop was like $150 - the TEST was 500, all by itself.

    sorry to be unhelpful, man!

    NASM can be ordered with the book on a CD...I can't see why someone couldn't burn a copy or send it to you as a PDF. I would but I have the hard copy...

    JESUS H. CHRIST!!! $500 for a test! Thanks brother. I think I have a guy who is willing to give me the ACE and I believe someone else told me the test is $200 so that looks to be the route I am gonna go, but I gotta check out the price of NSCA as I here the price is similar to ACE and it is much more respected.....NSCA and NASM are my top choices. Thanks guys. Still looking around. If anybody wants to help out check out my RESUME thread.....thanks brothers.....will update once I get some certification. As a matter of fact will most gyms hire you with some bull**** like this.....http://expertrating.com/personal-tra...tification.asp

    Right now it's to get my foot in the door. After that I can save up and study for one of the more respected certs. I hear the lowest payrate at Crunch GYM is $29.50 for a gym!!!
