    Best and most widely accepted Personal Training Certification?

    I am taking this semester off b/c of personal life issues, but I am on my way to become a Phsical Therapist.

    In the mean while I want to become a personal trainer and was wondering which of these programs are the best and most widerly accepted and approced...

    AFAA, ACSM, ACE, BSMI, Cooper, NCSF, NASM, NSCA, ISSA, NFPT

    I was more os so llokin at NASM or NSCA or ISSA but not sure which is the best out of all of them

    AFAA, ACSM, ACE, and NSCA are the top four in the world. So I would first start looking at these orginizations.

    It's pretty much felt that the ACSM is the "gold standard" for PT certifications. As far as "widely accepted", ACE will probably get you in the door of any gym. However, any gym that truly knows their stuff will take ACSM over ACE anyday, all things being equal.

    After ACSM, I'd recommend either the NSCA or NASM. Whatever route you choose, make sure it is at least accredited by the NCCA.

    My thoughts are just that; thoughts. Take anything I say with a grain of salt.

    My old gym required ACE, and it's not too hard to get. But yeah, I'd say ACSM is what I'd go for if I had to choose one.
