    my gym is offering a ACE certification program and i was wondering is it worth it to take it? its a 12 week program and they help you study for the test.

    For your information, when trying to get hired at a gym, most gyms could give a fuck if your "huge" or not, ACE is ok if your just tryin to get a PT job at a fitness or yuppie gym, its accepted by most major gyms i believe, 24hr, ballys, golds etc. Look into NASM, its a bit harder than ACE and is probably the MOST well known out of all certs.

    right. Most of the personal trainers are skinny little girly guys that don't know a damn thing about lifting. Getting a girl more toned by doing 39484 reps of no weight

    you need a 4 year+ degree to be anything in the athletic training field

    well, that is where connections/networking comes in play

    I'd look for a better one if you were wanting to actually learn something from this. Poloquin's certification actually looked pretty interesting/good. Though his costs like 2k.
