Becoming a Personal Trainer
For a few months now I have been wanting to become a personal trainer. Meaning I have to study for it. But of course before anything I have to pick a program/school or whatever from where I will be getting my certification from.
My initial choice was to go with ISSA – International Sports and Sciences Association because I liked their oversees support and online learning. As you all may know I am not living in the States… nor have I ever been there. So going to the U.S. to get a certification is not an option for me. So my priority is distance learning. ISSA seems to provide a very good oversees support based from what I’ve seen and read.
But I am looking into other CPT programs as well. And my other choice is NASM – National Academy of Sports Medicine basically because I love the simplicity of their website and I think they are more well established and accredited. But the course fees are a bit too much for me though. Whereas the ISSA course fees are very frank and up front and it is something I can handle for the time being.
Do you have any thoughts on the two programs? I’d love to hear/read them. Leave a comment below or send me an email (<– which is oddly most preferred by most of T.J. readers).
