The three most widely recognized and accepted are:
ACSM (gold standard personal trainer certifications) NASM ACE
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!
