I am now a NASM Certified Personal Trainer!

The "secret project" I have been working on for the last 6 months is that I have been studying to become a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. I left bright and early this morning to take the test in Madison.

Overall, I think the exam was difficult and tricky, but I studied so hard and felt really good by the time I clicked "end." When I accidentally saw the computer screen said "pass" next to my photo, I just about did a little dance right there. It was a huge relief to be done with the exam and know I succeeded.  My hard work had paid off.

In a future post, I'll share more details on my studying experience, the test, and what this means for my career.

Now excuse me while I go rest and do something other than read the NASM textbook!
