My Amazing Reason for Silence

Posted: December 26, 2012 in Uncategorized

Ever since I began my fitness blog journey only 5 months ago, I was extremely enthusiastic to demonstrate my knowledge of human physiology, nutrition, and general fitness and to hopefully engage my readers and lead them towards healthier, more-knowledgable choices. I was posting daily in hopes of garnering as many readers as possible in the shortest amount of time. I wanted nothing more than to teach–to provide no b.s., unadulterated, no strings attached information to the masses so that each reader may come to love the fit lifestyle as much as I do. The thing was, I was merely a health freak with no title and no backing.

But my last post was months ago and I am glad to, now, tell you why. For the past three months, I have been studying incessantly to transform a loved hobby into a lifelong career. I have sought the best available benchmark in fitness, strength, and nutrition, the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and reached for the furthest star by seeking the most prestigious fitness certification available. I am very proud to say that I am now a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA-CSCS)!!!

I pledged three months ago to not provide a single piece of advice until I had the distinction under my belt. I didn’t want to become Joe Shmoe delivering all kinds of broscience to my audience. Now I can truly claim that I know what I’m talking about and I sincerely hope that you will listen. Thank you very much.

    First and foremost, congratulations on your certification! I fully understand what it takes to study and prepare for such a certification. May this be simply a stepping stone for you in your future fitness endeavors. Best wishes and thank you for liking my post on “Looking back, Moving forward”. Stop back again soon!

    • Thank you very much for your encouragement. It truly has been a whirlwind experience finding my own niche in the business and initially getting my foot in the door. But it is words like these that will make the transition easier. I will most certainly be stopping by regular and I hope you will do the same. Happy Thursday!
