Action-Packed Live Education to help you get Certified as a Personal Trainer (NESTA, NASM, NSCA, and ISSA CEU/CEC’s)
Quote of the Day:
“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
Today’s Training Tip:
Are you “excited” about exercise? That’s why you do it. You enjoy lifting weights, or yoga, or running, etc. You want to exercise but don’t enjoy it or you don’t get excited about it? Find an enjoyable activity. If an enjoyable activity can’t be found, find someone who enjoys exercising to do it with. If you can’t find the will to exercise, find someone with whom you enjoy spending time who has the will to exercise, and they’ll keep you on track (great personal trainers make exceptional workout partners). You can have any goal in the world of losing weight, getting stronger, gaining muscle, etc., but it’ll never be accomplished until you get excited about exercise. Oh, you may make some progress for awhile with big goals and some determination, but this effort cannot and will not continue for 99% of people who haven’t found the excitement in exercise. That’s why P90x, CrossFit, and Warrior/Mud Runs have become so successful. They are not necessarily the best or right choice, however, they have succeeded in breeding excitement and that is why each has a very strong following. If you’re the trainee, find a trainer who can make the experience exciting and something to look forward to doing. Find someone who brings you an exciting experience (this doesn’t mean it has to be crazy or intense). If you’re the trainer, work on your understanding of communication, motivation, and understanding of behaviors, so that you can breed the excitement in others (you, not the exercise, should be exciting to be with). This will bring the consistency of exercise, leaving only the exercise plan to determine, not whether exercise will happen. Now stop reading or thinking, and take action.
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 personal trainer certification. 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 in personal training. Getting certified 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 to take 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.
“Work is doing what you must. Play is enjoying what you do.”
