There were several decisions that led me to choosing this certification, one of those being cost; I wanted cheap, but not too cheap, and I felt ACE’s priciest bundle fit that. But there were several other reasons as well:
I’ve also read a few horror stories of people who have taken the exam but have failed it a few times, mostly because they can’t nail the application questions. Also, even if you have a degree in exercise science, if you don’t know their model, you’re likely not going to pass the exam. From what I’ve read online, several people with degrees in exercise science skipped reading over the manual and went straight to the exam…only to fail.
But, at the end of the day, it’s the trainer that makes the cert.
