THE BEST TRAINING MODEL. THE BEST TRAINERS.
For over 25 years, the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM®) has set the standard in personal training certification, continuing education and tools for health and fitness professionals. We offer a wide range of opportunities for you to learn, grow your skills, build your business and apply your knowledge in real world settings to help your clients reach their fitness goals.
THE TOP CHOICE FOR TRAINERS AROUND THE WORLD
The NASM® Certified Personal Trainer, NASM-CPT, is the most sought after personal trainer certification in the industry. Our certification sets the standard in fitness, requiring a comprehensive knowledge of human movement science, functional assessment, and program design. In addition to our NASM-CPT, we offer a progressive career track with advanced specializations and continuing education courses - which keep our personal trainers at the top of their game.
“I would highly recommend all trainers seeking a professional certification to look no further than NASM®. It is my foundational certification that has set an amazing ground work for all the other methods of training I currently have.”
Joe Drake, NASM-CPT
Co-Owner of Gravity & Oxygen Fitness
The NASM Certified Personal Trainer Certification and specializations are developed with NASM’s exclusive Optimum Performance Training (OPT™) model™, the industry’s first comprehensive training system based on scientific, evidence-based research. It takes the guesswork out of program design and helps you produce consistent and remarkable results for your clients.The OPT model was developed to concurrently improve all functional abilities, including flexibility, core stabilization, balance, strength, power, and cardiorespiratory endurance. OPT has been extremely successful in helping clients from diverse populations to reduce their body fat, increase lean muscle mass and strength, and improve performance and overall health.
