I am so torn between getting the ISSA cert. and the NASM cert…. I know NASM is more well-known and accepted, however, I really like the idea that ISSA will give you a website. Am I understanding that correctly? How does that work (and how well) and does NASM or any other certs give you a benefit like that?
I know you are in the decision making process, and I just wanted to throw out one more additional comment (although not on the website front). NASM is NCCA accredited and holds a higher standard in the fitness industry. It is well respected and nationally recognized. I hold ACE certifications, but would also do NASM just because they are so highly regarded in the industry. Just my 2 cents for what it is worth… 🙂
You can do your research on the two and make your decision based on cost, recognition, standards, etc… You will choose the one that is right for you.
Best wishes to you on your decision and endeavor!
