ACE Personal Training Exam Tips
Hey there! If you're reading this, it sounds like you're about to take the ACE (American Council on Exercise) Personal Training Exam. If you have already, click the video above if you prefer the video format!
As a dietitian & newly certified personal trainer... I've learned one major theme when it comes to exams - it's not just WHAT you know, it's practicing how you play, e.g. studying how to take your test, in the format your test is given!
Of course you do need to KNOW your test, however, I find once you learn your stuff & get a general feel for it, it's time to practice in the form your test is given (typically, multiple choice, or for some, short answer).
I saw plenty of great videos on youtube on this topic, so I don't want to be a repeat of them all! I want to give my own separate set of unique tips, and let you watch the other great videos on your own time :)
