Hi, friends! Sorry to leave you hanging about my exciting news, but it’s for a good reason since it involves my news. You ready?
I’ve spent the past two days at a live workshop with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) to get some hands-on experience with client assessment, exercise technique, and program design. Do you see where I am going with this? That’s right, friends, I’m studying to get my personal trainer certification through NASM!
This certification has actually been a long time coming. Remember when I studied for the NASM exam back in 2009, but never took the test? There have been a bunch of times over the years that I thought about studying for it again, but the time was never right. Well, the time is right now!
I started studying again for the NASM exam in late-August, so I plan to take it (and pass!) before the end of the year. I want to use my new fitness knowledge and credentials to better CNC, specifically by writing more fitness-focused posts and creating some really awesome workouts to share. I also want to do some personal training on the side.
Phew. I’m so glad that I finally told you guys. I felt like I was keeping a big secret! I’m on my lunch break right now, so I have to get back to the workshop, but I’ll be sure to keep you guys in the loop about getting my personal trainer certification and future plans. I’m excited!
