    difference between a PT and a CSCS

    CSCS = certified strength and conditioning specialist. That is something I will be pursuing after college.

    Its no joke dude, you need to study your ass off for it... especially being in a deficit already of not having a degree in ES or Kin. The average PT doesnt need a CSCS.

    Thanks, I'll write a review on the whole test when i'm done with it for anybody thats interested in taking it. I've talked to some of my teachers with the cert and they have told me what the test is like and what to study (which is pretty much a whole text book).

    edit: retarded drunk post, but seriously if he wants to be a legit PT tell him to get the BEST one not the easiest one. It's kind of annoying hearing that somebody wants to take a job to help other people and they don't want to take the time to study the necessary stuff, but then I just realized you guys use PT to mean personal trainer, not Physical Therapist, so in this case yeah who gives a fuck what cert he has

    Maine, ISSA works with Bally's and the way they have it set up, as soon as you purchase the certification (but before you take the test and become certified), you can go ahead and start working for them as like an apprentice or something.. it's weird.

    PT does not equate to personal trainer

    I'm ISSA certified, ACE is much easier in comparison.
