Call around or check out the web sites for the gyms in your area; that will give you a good idea of what's going to be accepted. That's what led to my decision to go with NASM.

Thank you very much! I will check those out!

The three most widely recognized and accepted are:

ACSM (gold standard personal trainer certifications)

The NASM is what a lot of chain-gym trainers have. The curriculum for that certification is taken from the ACSM's, so it's pretty rigorous.

I am not familiar with the curriculum for ACE, but it's widely accepted and respected.

I hope that helps.

I am looking to get certified as a personal trainer but am a little over whelmed with all the options. Any suggestions on which is the best or most widely accepted? Help of any kind would be great! Thanks guys!
