I am almost in Trainer Zone, I have shadowed a few sessions and I am really excited about getting clients and creating programs. The trainer I've been shadowing suggested I attend the ACE Training In Practice Workshop. She said it was really great, that it taught her some tips and tricks to make her indespensible in the industry. Sounds like a good investment to me.
For those of you in the fitness industry, their is a personal training workshop coming to Atlanta.
