Sorry for the lack of posts the past few weeks- it’s midterm week in my final three prerequisite classes before my Doctorate of Physical Therapy program starts in August so I have abandoned the blog to study the cranial and spinal nerves, chemistry words that I can’t even pronounce and the physics behind electricity in a circuit.
Speaking of studying, I decided to take the plunge on something I have been thinking about for the past several months. This weekend I ordered my study materials to become a certified personal trainer (CPT) through the American College of Sports Medicine!
It is in line with my future profession and a great way to make some cash while in graduate school. The certification is no joke- its a standardized test that ACSM recommends you spend 3 to 6 months studying for. I plan to take the test in the beginning of the summer so that when school starts in late August, I can focus all my energy there. I am really looking forward to studying and learning all about creating exercise plans for anyone from athletes, to people with health conditions, and people trying to get into tip top shape.
I’m so excited about where my life is heading career wise!
Ill be back with an update about marathon training (or lack thereof) after I kick ass on all my midterms this week!
