Action-Packed Live Workshops to Get Certified as a Personal Trainer

Quote of the Day:
“In order to succeed your desire for success must be greater than your fear of failure.”
(Bill Cosby)

Today’s Training Tip:
How do I get the most out of my maximal/basic strength workout? Warm-up for at least 5-10 minutes using low or no load movements similar to the joint actions to be used in the workout. Then choose a load that is no more than 40% of your max ability to lift (something you could repeat 20 or more times) as your warm-up set. Rest 30-45 seconds. The next set should not be more than 60-70% of your max (something you could lift 12-15 times or so). Rest 60 seconds or so. Then you can proceed to a lift that is 80-85% of your max (something you can lift roughly 6-8 times), if that is your goal. Repeat the last set or increase loading, if you’re ready. Strength gains will not be maximized unless you wait at least 3 minutes between loading sets at 85% of max or greater (anything you can only perform 6-8 reps or less). Perform no more than 6 total sets (unless you are truly advanced) for the movement. And remember, if form fails, you already performed one too many. And if your face is ugly (straining), then so too is your form.

Live Training for Personal Trainers (Certification or CEUs)


    Yes, you can get certified as a personal fitness trainer in only one weekend. No, this is not the end of your education. This is only the beginning, or another step toward mastery. And oh what a beginning it will be!

    Training Made Fun is a sports and fitness training company focusing on the education and professional development of personal trainers, fitness instructors, and athletic coaches. The first step is obtaining certification to work as a personal trainer. Once you get certified, we know that it isn’t how much you know, or how many degrees or certifications you have, but what you can do with what you know that matters most. Getting certified as a personal trainer gets you the minimum education requirement for working as a personal trainer. The education you receive during the process of the workshop weekend will astound you.

There can be no such thing as too much education or knowledge. And there can be no such thing as being too fit or too athletic. But knowledge without proper application is useless, and being obsessive about fitness or athleticism often results in illness, injury, or chronic overtraining. At Training Made Fun, it is our goal to help the personal training experts and the individuals our experts coach and train to see the fun in training and working out. Training and working out are only fun and enjoyable if everyone has the necessary information, knows how to use and apply the information, and modifies each individual program intelligently and consistently toward continual progress.

This process is not easy, however, it is fun.

Training Made Fun is authorized by NESTA to offer 2-day personal fitness training workshops with an option to challenge the NESTA Personal Fitness Trainer Certification Exam and become a certified personal trainer and/or to receive continuing education credits (1.6 NESTA, NASM, and/or NSCA CEU/CEC’s). You can come to the workshop with the option to challenge the NESTA PFT Certification Exam, or you can come to simply learn more about the science and application of personal training than you ever thought you could receive in a single weekend. Your possibilities are endless, but you must first show up and take in all that you can.
