    I've never heard of that certification and I'm a CPT. Why are you getting one that's not well-respected?

    Practical and contextual reasons. I live in Japan where, it so happens, NESTA is more recognized than other ones. If I were living in the States, my choice would have been different.

    Good point... I got NASM because that's the one that will get you a job at most gyms in the US, but I respect a CSCS or ACSM credential more than a NASM one...and I don't have those yet icon_razz.gif

    For mine, they offered a practice test you could take unlimited times, and I also just went through the textbook. For me it was all a review and more memorization of NASM's tenants they would test over.

    No shortage of green tea here. Japan lives on green tea. ;)
