On to the Next Step

Well, I did it! I recently passed both exams to obtain my Personal Training Specialist certification through Canfitpro. One step closer to my goal of working as a personal trainer.

I’m not sure if it has really sunk in yet because now I have all these choices of what to do next. My options would be to work in a gym (big or small), train out of my home or to work as an online trainer. This last option is becoming more and more popular these days but I feel as though I would likeĀ to gain some experience working one on one with clients before attempting to train online. It is all very exciting and quite overwhelming.

Although I have enjoyed working out for the past twenty years, I never seriously considered the possibility of pursuing a career in the fitness field. Now, with me being at home it seemed like the perfect time to try something new that I might actually enjoy. I am so excited to be able to help others achieve their fitness goals!

As always, I have enlisted the help of my very supportive husband. He has the same passion for working out and is essentially going to be my personal trainer. We are working on perfecting my form and trying out some new exercises. Watch for a post about TRX suspension training very soon! I am loving some of those exercises.

The Canfitpro course was actually quite enjoyable and efficient. There was an online course, an in-class portion and two exams, a written and a practical. I tried to get the exams done as quickly as possible after completing the course so all in all I was done within a three month period. Now the problem is that I want to continue with my education but I can’t decide what to take next since the courses all look so interesting! I will have to decide on my niche so that I can move in that direction. I am so excited to check out the Canfitpro expo this summer to see what it has to offer.

All in all, I am very eager to see what the future holdsĀ and feel very fortunate to be able to pursue this dream.
