If you are an aspiring fitness professional, certification through the American Council on Exercise (or ACE) could be very important to your career and your business. You may want to look into ACE prep classes and one-on-one tutoring through Varsity Tutors.

The health and fitness industry is booming and growing every day. Professional certification that comes after an exam with ACE can help to show the outside world that you are knowledgeable about the industry you're entering. Delving into your studies with personal tutoring can help you clarify the certification you're interested in.

ACE offers several certification options that might match your professional aspirations. Those certification options include personal training, group fitness instruction, health coaching, and medical exercise specialist. The table below outlines the different options, and what a professional in the different programs can often expect to be able to do.

ACE Certification Exams Focus
Group Fitness Instructor Certification Ability to teach fitness classes at all levels
Health Coach Certification Ability to help others in weight management, lifestyle coaching, and customized exercise programs.
Personal Trainer Certification Ability to offer personalized and small group instruction.
Medical Exercise Specialist Certification Ability to work with the healthcare community by providing fitness and exercise programs to patients and those in post-rehabilitative stages.

There are five steps to obtaining your ACE certification, and although an ACE class may not be explicitly stated in the list below, that sort of preparation can be a very helpful tool to use in the first of the steps - doing your research and picking a specialization in the health and fitness industry. Guided and supported ACE classes may be helpful, especially if you're someone who has trouble focusing on one topic at a time.

Your time spent in ACE courses with a tutor can be customized to focus on the certification-related topics you're interested in, A tutor may be able to design a specific plan that addresses your knowledge, whether you need more clarification in some topics or you have a good grasp on others. They can create personalized study guides that make ACE prep classes more helpful for you. Because they're focusing all of their attention on you, they can help you to concentrate and work through your ACE course, completing modules on all the important topics, unlike what might happen in a group classroom setting.

The list below outlines the suggested steps to take to obtain your professional certification.

ACE Suggested Certification Pathway

  1. Research and study
  2. Register for the exam of your choice
  3. Pass to earn certification
  4. Choose a specialty such as weight management, functional training, or youth fitness and complete those programs
  5. Maintain your certification with continuing education credits

Taking an ACE prep course with a tutor can help in a variety of ways. Your tutor can help you to prepare for the exam itself, by focusing on content, study aids, and tips, or they can help you to identify strategies you may need to focus on, like time management or to reduce test anxiety. Not all ACE prep courses are so flexible.

We look forward to helping you reach your certification goals. We work to pair you with a tutor who can meet your specific needs, whether that's in scheduling, or specialized content in sessions during an ACE prep course. We offer a Live Learning Platform that makes your physical location irrelevant during a tutoring session, because you don't have to be in the same place as your tutor to conduct an ACE prep class.
