look dog, if you want to pass the cscs then just order a book called "The Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning" and you will pass guaranteed. One of my mentors is Dr. Jeff Chandler and he is the dept head at Jacksonville State University where I played football and got my b.s. degree and he is also the Editor and Chief of the NSCA Strength and Conditioning Journal. We are really close. If you need a copy I have one. I passed it on the first attempt and to tell you truth, if you have been doing this for a while, it aint that hard. trust me. if u need anything, just holla. We all in this together. by the way, i have a great friend that played at Prattville. His name is Zach Woodfin and he played linebacker at UAB. I coaches Ty Griswold at JSU when I was a student assistant there after playing football. Cool people man. Zach is working at a facility in Los Angeles. He is on this website as a matter of fact!
i have my CSCS, USAW, USA TRACK AND FIELD AND I am taking the CSCCA this summer. I have a B.S. in Exercise Science and M.S. in Exercise Physiology. I couldnt find a job as a strength coach so I got a Grad assistant position at UAB working for Coach Martin and Coach Torman. I am getting another MAE in Health Education, but really dont want to. I thin it is a waste of time. I am ready to start working man. I am very active in the NSCA and I have been to both of the NSCA National Conferences ('07 in Atlanta and '08 in Las Vegas). I just dont know what else to do man!
hey man. i am a grad assistant at UAB in Birmingham. I am trying to get my first job at the collegiate level. I personally know Coach Bill Clark. He coached me at Piedmont Middle School when i was a kid. He also coached my brothers in High School. Any tips?
I can't imagine trying to change careers while have a wife and 3 kids good luck to you. I actually got my start as an intern and G.A. at Penn State in the football weight room. I did that for about a year and a half, got hired for a year by Duquesne and then eventully came to La Salle. I have been here for 4 years. I played football in college at Bloomsburg, we didn't have a strength coach so I started doing research on training myself. Did this for a while and really liked it so I change from Bio to Exercise Science and got my degree.
If I were you, I would get a job using my degree and train, volunteer on the side, if you have time. I'm single so it's easy for me to say. Good luck on your test, if you have any questions about anything don't hesitate to ask. This is a tough field to get into and stay in, good luck.
That is cool, good luck on the test, I'm sure you will do well. I will call you very soon man, and I look forward to talking to you. Hope you and your family are doing very well. Talk to you later, God Bless
Thanks for your interest. All I have is volunteer positions here, but if you are interested in gaining DI experience, give me a call. I am always looking for help. I'll be in the office until 7 p.m. today. 215-951-1820.
