Working on Final Year Project - Update II

I'm glad to tell you that my final year project progress has been going very smoothly, credit goes to my supervisor who has been giving all the necessary guidance and pointers to me. My project proposal was given the approval in August, with slight change on research title, with " Health Related Fitness Knowledge and Physical Activity Frequency among Malaysian Undergraduates " as the final title.

Pilot study has been conducted for the past 2 weeks and the data was presented this morning, it shows a good reliability analysis reading at 0.837 .

Thus I was given the green light to collect my data without the need to amend my instrument. The real data collection begins NOW with YOU.

If you meet the 3 criteria below, I really need you to be part of my research. It would take up less than 10 minutes to complete 36 questions related to health and fitness.

  • a Malaysian undergraduate who is studying for your first bachelor's degree, diploma or certificate.
  • Aged between 18 to 35 years old.
  • Have not taken or currently not taking any Sports Science, Exercise or Fitness courses prior to this.

Please write me an email at GetFitWithJasonLee(at)gmail.com if you are interested to be part of this research.

Athletic Certification & Training Commision


I signed up to be a beta tester for Athletic Certification & Training Commision (ACT) when they first launched in September 2009. The ACT is relatively new in the fitness industry as an organization that provide opportunities to fitness enthusiast to be a Certified Personal Trainer. Above all, they provide their Personal Trainer course for free, on a Basic Plan. People have an option to upgrade their Basic Plan to a Pro Plan for a small fee of one time payment $65.

The Pro Plan include pre-recorded lectures, online lectures with live instructors, practice exams and many other benefit that are useful. You may click here to view and compare the Basic Plan and Pro Plan.

In case you are wondering what's the catch behind ACT offering free fitness certification, you may read them all here. You may also think, how good can ACT's course be in terms of education quality? Especially when it's offered for free (unless you upgrade to a Pro Plan), I'm sure you who is currently reading this would be skeptical. I admit, I was skeptical too.
