Congratulations Craig Schmit! Craig, a Montana Athletic Club member, recently earned his Certification as an AmericanCollege of Sports Medicine Personal Trainer.
The gold standard for Personal Training Certification, the ACSM is an on-line program that includes a three day workshop in Denver, all culminating in a 2 ½ hour test with 150 questions. Craig passed with flying colors. But, it hasn’t always been easy for Craig.
In February of 2010 Craig suffered a traumatic Stroke leaving him with major speech and physical challenges. “Basically,” said Craig, “ I had to totally start over; I had to learn to walk and talk. But, you know what? When I think about it now, having a stroke has made me a better person.”
With exhaustive therapy Craig got himself in prime condition both mentally and physically. He continues to work out at the MAC several times a week and raise his two sons. When Craig decided to change careers and become a Personal Trainer it is
not surprising he succeeded.
Great job Craig.
