Summary: Good Study Book
Comment: This book is straight from ACE. It is complete with a section in the back that breaks down what the Ace test will cover. I have not taken the Ace test yet and so I cannot comment on whether or not this book alone will be sufficient enough as a study aid for the Ace Group Fitnsss Instructor exam. I found it extremely informative and very well organized.

Summary: Satisfactory reference book
Comment: Satisfactory reference book. Would recommend American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Reference Manual instead.

Summary: Reference book or not - still boring
Comment: The level of information in this book is outstanding. However it is delivered in a very monotonus way. I know the material presented and I utililized other reading and documentation to support the ACE book. With my education and background and supplemental information I would have still passed the exam. However if the ACE reference book was my first and only encounter with the subject matter the exam would have been a nightmare. The book is a good reference guide. As I have completed my graduate coursework in the kinesiology area, this book has been of great value.

Summary: Very thorough
Comment: While it is true that this book is "boring", one must understand the nature of the beast. This is a "resource" book, not intended for leisure reading. It is a preparatory text written to prepare fitness enthusiasts to gain a full understanding of the many requirements of BECOMING a group fitness instructor. This book is sold on the acefitness.com website along with a preparatory guide book and sample test. The purpose of such a text is to prepare an individual to take an ACE exam to become certified as a group exercise instructor. This book does so quite exhaustively, but, yes, it is dry reading. I write this only to inform potential buyers that the book is an excellent resource for would-be professionals in the fitness industry, but if you are looking for leisure reading, this is not the right book. I AM an ACE-certified fitness professional and happen to know that their exam is one of the top 2 in the nation. So, if you're thinking of becoming a fitness professional, you need to read this.

Summary: chemistry, anatomy, nutrition and more
Comment: I have never read a book that was so boring. It was like reading a college text book. It's a book you have to know if you want to pass the ace certifications and I don't envy the people taking the test. It is a big book with definitions you wished were more broken down.
