Yeah, I was surprised at how small the percent the trainer gets from what the gym charges.

I don't think they do and that's my point. Silly thing is, it would only matter if I went back to working at a gym and if I did that, I'd be making MUCH less $$ per hour.

I feel the same way.

Eh, I don't know. I worked my ass off for ACE and honestly, since I work for myself, having another certification isn't going to make a difference. My clients don't know what ACE is. As long as I'm certified, it's okay.

And really, I'd rather spend the money/time on continuing ed.

Would you consider it? I'm not into studying all that material again but ACSM is better than ACE anyway or at least seen in better light.

Nope, haven't gotten it yet. I think our certification is going downhill, Jean. Maybe it's time to start researching ACSM. :P
