Another thing to consider is, are there specific places that you’d like to work? If so, what certifications do those potential employers value?
ACE is a great cert. I don’t have ISSA, but I’ve never had trouble getting a job with my ACE personal training cert.
The training model I find to be the most elegant of all is NASM. I’ve read their book cover to cover and appreciate their OPT model.
Hello Clint Ashford,
Good luck with your new career; I love mine. I am certified through ACE and have not regretted one minute. I went with ACE because the gym in my area suggested them. That is my tip; go to where you hope to work and see what the employer requires.
Enjoy the studies,
Natalie aka NAPS 2 B Fit.
