    Personal Trainer Online Classes


    What's everyone PT classes and how did you like the class? I'm looking to increase my knowledge more into training starting with basic personal training and moving into plenty of others. I have searched and found many different sites some more expensive with better benefits, some cheaper with less everything. I have a full time career and do not plan on changing it to become a full time trainer unless I run into Jessica Alba she requests me, or I have a huge change of heart which has been known to happen. I am always seeking more knowledge of the weight training, personal training, nutrition, and physique world.
    Someone just asked me today at work, "So why do you still work out 6 days a week and diet like you do?? Your in great shape!" My instant reply was, "it's no longer about how I look to people, I love what I do, it's how you drink beer or some people shoot heroin. It is my high every day I walk in the door and here the weights banging around and people screaming tryin to push theirselves. Plus I'm never satisfied when I look in the mirror I see the change I need to make happen that even my girl wouldn't be able to notice hah."
    Back on subject I want to take classes online. Where do you recommend?

    Nothing beats hands on experience.

    Do you want to work as a PT with a particular population, or just learn new cool things that you can apply to your self and your buddies that also lift?

    If the former, then I suggest looking into getting your NASM personal trainer cert. If the latter then you should check out many of the regional conferences put on or sponsored by the NSCA. Check out some of Mike Boyle's stuff for starters.
