I have been in the fitness industry for eons (really, cuz I am 65) & have accumulated numerous certifications after an academic base. None were ever mandatory for my teaching, lectures, writing, workshops,etc., but I did them to be self- challenged. That was until many certifying organizations became money grubbing & I rebelled. What a fresh concept with ACTION offering their certification for free. Yes, that will change with accreditation but for newbies & those of us who want a brain jolt w/o the cost for basically the same material as the expensive others, I commend ACTION. Serious text kinks need to be addressed such as incorrect info--a typo is annoying but misinformation is troubling. However, that will be rectified, I am sure. Those of you embarking on this new career....continual education is imperative but free if you want, be cognizant of liability in every situation, perfect your social/client skills, & truly, be empowered that your knowledge is positively affecting others. Lastly, remember, the workouts are for your client....not you. Kay ACTION-CPT (marathon runner in Florida) kswimfit@aol.com
