ACE vs. NASM?

by Tom
(IL)

Wondering which certification is best for a first time accreditation? Both ACE and NASM seem widely-recognized and accepted. I am undecided whether to use my PT cert for training individuals on my own, or within a fitness club. Would like to keep my options open either way since this would strictly be a part-time "hobby" for me (i.e. <10 hrs/week). Anyone have advice?

ACE VS NASM
by: Glen Edward Mitchell

They both are great! But I have them both and I think that the lastest and greatest is NASM hands down ! More practical, more functional and more reasoning to why answered!

What Is A Part Time Trainer ?
by: Jeff Moore

I chose NESTA for my cert agency (NCCA accredited). But the real reason I am responding is to the part time comment. I work a full time job and decided to get into training part time. Boy was I surprised at the time invested in my clients. It's like this. If you please a few clients, many will come. And trying to make a name for yourself, you dont want to turn down prospective clients. So now I have enough clients to keep me really busy, but not yet enough to transition into training full time. In the PT field the benefits like insurance and vacation time and such are not there. The money is good, but not good enough in most regions. But the main thing is helping people achieve their potential. To me thats the best thing, long story short. There is no such thing as a part time PT. The days are long but rewarding but only a few strike it big in big markets. Good luck in your training

I have NASM and it was the best thing I could do for my career as a fitness expert.
