Mary Baum


I made a small update to the blog this morning. It is pretty hard to notice it, unless you are really looking for it. Can you guess what it is…?

My disclaimer went from this:

To this:

See the difference?! Yep, I passed my NASM personal trainer exam!!

I have been studying for this for the past few months, and I am thrilled to have completed (and passed!) the exam. I will share with you all my thoughts on the program and why I chose NASM over other programs, but for now, I am going to throw these out and enjoy the rest of my Friday!

Have an amazing weekend!

    Yaya, Mary! Congratulations! (Not a surprise, obviously. ;)) Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the program. Can you talk a bit about your studying philosophy and the time commitment it requires? I’ve been thinking about getting certified, but I’m not a good test-taker, which makes me nervous.

    […] for starters, I really buckled down on my studying for my NASM exam, and I passed it. Woo hoo! As for running, I have had a lot of people who knew what I was up to when I was training […]
