If you're interested in becoming a certified personal trainer there's a couple different ways to go about that. A lot of people look to ACE or AFA as getting started getting their foot in the door. I myself am certified through AFAA Aerobic Fitness Association of America, and in terms of getting started with that, what I had to do was go online, look for a three day course, look in your area, whatever your demographic area is and see where they offer a course. I think for ACE you can do an online course and take an exam, submit it in, and get started, get certified initially. With AFFA I had to go to a three day workshop in New Hampshire. And you can actually, they have them all across the country and they have them at all different times throughout the year. So you look up, you know, whatever is closest to you, or if you are willing to drive, I'm sure they have one every month they continually cycle through them. So, sign up for a workshop, go in, do the three day class. With AFFA what they had us do was they gave us the study material ahead of time, you have to pay it's about $500 or so to do this, and that includes your certification as well as your study materials. And you go sit through the workshop, they explain all the materials, and you have to do a "prac app" where you train another person, go through ten exercises, explaining, you know, how to do these different motions with a partner, then you actually do a "prac app" where you have to demonstrate some of the things that they taught you as well as take a written exam afterwards, at which point they'll grade that and if you get 80 percent or higher you'll get your certification in the mail within about a month or so after that.
