Certified Personal Trainer?

On Monday I passed the NASM test to become a Certified Personal Trainer. Hooray! Studying is over! Now just because I passed the test does not mean I am the next Jillian Michaels yet

With that being said, there is a huge sense of relief that the test is over and I don't feel like I need to constantly be studying my text book. Here is a list of things I am excited to do now that I have free time again! 

//Finish reading this book 
//Start this book 
//Play on Pinterest - guilt free 
//Workout in my free time
//Create new workouts for the blog
//Practice being more like these two
//SnapChat even more
//Read all the Buzzfeed 
//Go to brunch 
//Start Sherlock on Netflix
//Look at pictures of puppies online


//Make up names for said puppies -this guy is Gus 
//Go see Frozen 
//Perfect my Elaine Benes dance moves


//Figure out what to do with my CPT

//But most importantly...I can now wear these pants when I train people. 



Cheers!

<3 BB, CPT

CONGRATS!!! That's so exciting! My cousin just got certified as a personal trainer in October and he's so happy to be doing what he loves now.

I have been pressured by a couple of my friends to start watching Sherlock, too. It's all I hear about!

So basically the take away is that you are the next Jillian Michales?

CONGRATS! I am obviously not a very good blog stalker because I didn’t even know you were taking that test. I've heard it's pretty freaking hard though. In December, I passed a test to become a patent agent and good lord, I acted like I had just been released from prison. I just felt like running through the streets like “LOOK AT ALL THE FREE TIME I HAVE TO JUST RUN AROUND WEEEEEEEEEEE” and then I started taking brunch a lot more seriously, obviously. Thanks for linking me, by the way. I owe you one!

Angi said...

Ahh congratulations! That's super exciting. Are we allowed to solicit you occasionally for free workout advice? ;)

And yes. Start Sherlock. You won't be disappointed.

Awesome!! Congratulations!! It feels so good when studying pays off ;)) and LOL at "look a puppies online" cuz I spend probably more than I should a day doing the same thing :)

Brit @ Wine, Cheese, and Workout Capris said...

Yayyyyy!!!! Huge congrats! :)

Also, funny story, I'm obsessed with the Elaine dance. I would do it at every dance in high school as a joke and all my friends were mortified but the teachers got it and laughed with/at me.

Also, I own this: http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/de/f6/de/def6de5442ec849d4f0563e2693322f0.jpg
