Hi Fit Chicks! I apologize for being absent on my blog this past week, but I have been studying for my Group Fitness certification exam and guess what?! I PASSED! This past Friday I took my exam and passed! I’m still in shock! I had been studying hard the past six months and trust me, it’s not a walk in the park- piece of cake-kinda thing! BUT, if you truly want something bad enough you will do whatever it takes to get there and this is a huge accomplishment to me.
I’m very excited to be certified through ACE (American Council on Exercise) Fitness and there are many more awesome certifications through nationally recognized exercise associations and organizations. (If you are looking to become a fitness instructor, I would recommend doing research first or if you have any questions about doing it through ACE, ask me and I’ll be happy to tell you about it!)
Before my exam, I came across a quote that read “If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.” This was so true for me after I found out I had passed my certification exam! I was so scared I was not going to pass the entire time, but seeing “Congratulations” flash across the screen at the end of my exam made it all worth it! It goes to show you hard work with anything will pay off!
I wanted to be in the fitness and health industry to help others live a healthy and happy lifestyle and this certification is just another step toward my dreams of helping others. I enjoy teaching my clients at work & thankful for the experience I have been receiving through training and teaching classes, as well as putting on a six-week bikini bootcamp this past summer. All in all, I hope this inspires you to go after your dreams, whatever they may be! With hard work and dedication, drive and passion, you CAN do it all and believe in yourself! That is the most important thing is to believe in what you can do! Never give up! So, what’s next on the fitness agenda for me?! Getting certified in TRX this September and starting my certification on life coaching/nutrition! Eeek! Thanks fit chicks for supporting my dreams! Xoxo
