Yes, I am a C.O.R.F.I.T. graduate and I can recommend you the program with all my heart:) You will learn interesting things and the team is very friendly (not vegan though :D). I don't know if it's offered in Boston. I know there are classes in Montreal, New York I think and other parts of the US. Check the website at www.corfit.com

I went through NASM. From what I saw, it required the most understanding of the body and nutrition, including requirements for certifications in CPR and defibrillator training. The others didn't seem as "science intense" or completely anal about this stuff, which is why I chose NASM.

I may argue that ISSA does require CPR/AED, and first aid.


And most gyms won't let you make nutritional observations on clients unless you have a degree in nutrition, not just part of your certificate.


NASM isn't any more science intense than the NSCA either. I went through the NSCA already, and my current college program uses NASM texts and certs. The information is very similar. You could probably damned near pass one test by reading the text for the other. I think most of the information is the same, at least throughout the ISSA, NSCA, NASM, ACE and ACSM. I think they all require CPR/AED certs.

My personal trainer cert is from NCSF. The National Council on Strength and Fitness. The course is also approved for college credit.

It was very cheap...or shall I say, inexpensive compared to the others I researched. It was accepted by both my gym jobs. Xsport accepted it...and now the University of Chicago.(I am a pt at the gym on campus.)
