It’s official! I’ve purchased all the supplies to become an NASM certified personal trainer. I’m super excited. The materials are on their way and this is going to happen, because I’m finally going to make it happen.
I don’t have any plans of quitting my day job. This certification is something that I’ve been dying to have for a long time. I’m doing it for my own health, personal enrichment, expanded knowledge, more clout as a health and fitness writer, and perhaps online personal training down the road. I’m toying with the idea of getting a second job as a PT at a gym, but I’ll cross that bridge later.
This was an impulsive, yet planned, buy that I know I won’t regret. I will be entering a new decade of life in about 6 months (exactly the amount of time I have to take the PT test), and I wanted to do something big to take me running strong into this next decade. I kept thinking about how you never regret things you try, but you do regret things you never tried. I am not going to regret anything this time.
I’m so excited to take you along for the ride. I’ll keep you posted on progress, testing tips, workshop updates, and how it’s all going. In the meantime, I can hardly stand the wait until those books get here!
