The knowledge you will acquire from this course will give you a solid base of information to progress into our program to obtain a Special Strengths Certificate. If you own or operate a gym, this knowledge is also a stepping-stone for your gym to become a Westside Barbell Certified Gym.
I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to acquire the knowledge that will earn you the Westside Barbell Personal Training and Athletic Coaching Certificate. This will ensure your own personal success in achieving optimal results from strength training, as well as the success of those athletes and lifters who may rely upon you for guidance in their training programs.
I look forward to your success in obtaining this certification and, hopefully, in the immediate future, continuing to provide you with more in-depth knowledge for additional Westside Barbell certification.

First the content of the material is great. The knowledge you get from this certificate is absolutely worth it. There were some contradictory statements in the Study Material (the correct percentage for the load on dynamic days for example) but in general they were very good. If you want to boost your understanding of the Westside Methods and want them implement them in your training, you can't go wrong. My problem is that as a certified personal Trainer, i want to document when i acquire new knowledge. The certification that you get after the successful exam is very disappointing. It looks like made by a 5-year-old with Windows Paint. It has no official look at all. As a trainer who needs to prove his qualifications or want to use this certificate as a document to show that he can call his gym a Westside Certified Gym (as advertised) this simply isn't enough. I don't understand why you get a real certification with the special Strength course but only this absolutely bland looking simplistic piece. You can't use this in applications or if you hang this out in your gym people would just laugh. Even if Westside don't want to give out a Hard copy, there should be a decent looking official digital certificate. So my resume is if you want this certificate for yourself to boost your knowledge about Westside go for it. If you want it as a trainer as a additional qualification or prove your gym is Westside certified, it's a very mixed bag.
This program gave me a great understanding of the conjugate system while giving me the ability to relay this information and coach my clients. The test showed me how much I have retained the information while not being too easy. If you study the material good enough you will be fine. Even though it was open book, I never felt the need to look at anything. Overall, I rate this program five stars.
The exam was definitely not easy nor difficult (if you studied/read). There were some small spelling issues and grammatical issues on some of the questions but I learned a lot. My only complaint is that the Certificate doesn't really look "legit." It could use some work. Maybe the Westside logo as a watermark or stamp? Not sure. I just felt that for studying for a week or two and paying $300 plus dollars I would expect a better certificate. Maybe I'll take the Strength Systems one next and find out since it is hand mailed. Overall, decent test.
