I'd go through NASM if I were you. Before I became certified, I asked the owners of multiple gyms what cert they prefer the trainers to have. They all mentioned NASM, amongst others. It's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Their programs teach you how to progressively train anybody, and there are tons of continuing certs to get if you want to hone in on a specific training, such as the elderly, mma or group classes.
