I'm actually working toward this myself. I'm in desperate need of a career change and PT seemed pretty logical. I have the ISSA program sitting at home and the next test is in August I think. I have heard ACE certification is nice to have, looks good on the resume, but is kind of impractical as far as good, useful information goes. NSCA and ACSM certs are highly recommended but are also supposed to be very difficult tests. Good luck!

I was actually going to respond to this post that Naxis should become a personal trainer! Lots of great advice, I think I speak for most everyone on this board when I say that.
