Personal Training Certification?

I was wondering if anyone at Collage would if AFAA certification or ACE certification would be best for personal training.

A person is a person no matter how small.

    I have AFAA and I found out after I got it that some organizations dont accept it so if you want to take a course with them you may have to take something else first. Sort of like a pre-req in college. Take a look at NESTA and ACSM before you deside.
    Look at the profiles here on Collage for the instructors you like and see who they are certified  by...that might help you too.

    Oh, I'm doing well. I am almost half way through my undergrad work. It is exciting buy scary all at the same time. I have made the decision to become a personal trainer. Life is really crazy right now with dealing with "grown up" situations for the first time. It is a crazy ride!

    Glad to hear you're doing well.  Hope the "grown up situations" you're dealing with aren't too major!  Good luck on becoming a personal trainer.  That's awesome!  Take care of yourself! :)
