What is your name?
Yasmin

Give a little background history of yourself.
I am from Spain. I started seriously working out 10 years ago. My favorite type of working out is weight lifting. I worked in a gym in Spain as a weight room monitor and I like it. That is when I realized I wanted to be a personal trainer.

What made you decide to pursue this area of study (i.e. Personal Fitness Training)?
I wanted to specialize in personal trainer and have a better knowledge of exercise training after I received my Sport Technician certificate in Spain (so that I can be a more knowledgeable professional).

What made you to decide to pursue this interest in the Personal Fitness Trainer program at ACC?
Most universities do not offer the specific program that I was looking for. ACC offered it and it just as good as if I were in a university program (in my opinion).

What was the hardest part of the program?
The hardest part of the program was some specific subjects were you need to study a bit more an dnot missing the explanations and theory of some classes that have both theory and practice.

What was the best/most beneficial part of the program?
When I finally got to train a client.

Are you currently employed as a Personal Fitness Trainer? If so, at what capacity? If not, why not?
I am not currently employed as a Personal Fitness Trainer because I am in the process of getting my US residency in order to work legally. I am not currently working because I am still an International Student.

If you had a single piece of advice for someone interested in being a Personal Fitness Trainer, what would it be?
Do not miss a class and enjoy the program. Do not give up!
