Are They Certified?

And is it a legitimate certification? There are respected certifications like those from The American Council on Exercise (ACE) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), and then there are gimmicky certifications that don’t actually mean anything. Avoid trainers that aren’t certified by respected institutions and make sure they keep up with renewing their certification and knowledge of the industry. You can check their certification status with each organization, or look them up on the IDEA Health & Fitness Association website.
