Which online personal trainer certification?
(Louisville, KY )
I am having a lot of trouble choosing a personal trainer certification program. It seems that NASM, ACE, ACSM, and NSCA are the most recognized to choose from. My concern is that I want plenty of time to prepare and really learn the material, not just study to pass a test.
I've noticed most all of these certification options only give you 60-90 days to study and take the test. Not to mention I live in Kentucky and would have to fly somewhere to take the test and check out seminars since none seem to be local.
I would like to order the materials and learn at home at my own pace without stressing about flying somewhere to take a test in 3 months, as I will also be starting school to get a degree in Exercise Psychology.
I noticed the ISSA doesn't seem to be the most talked about method but do seem to provide the best option for materials, study time, phone and online support, testing options, and price. I don't want to waste time and money learning material to take a test from a online company who's certification won't get me a job in my career. Any help would be highly appreciated as I am tired from endless research and want to start learning.
