For those of you who don’t know this, I have been studying hard for the past 4 months (God time flies!) for my National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) exam that will allow me to A) acquire liability insurance so I can B) START TEACHING KETTLEBELLS AS A FULL TIME GIG! Get ready! The New Year is going to be EPIC!
I wanted to take some time to review the NASM program in terms of how it prepares you to be a trainer. NASM is an online Personal Training Certification program that really focuses on the bio-mechanics, anatomy, and biology behind personal training, not to mention that it has a inside look at marketing skills you’ll need to be a successful personal trainer. I chose NASM because it has the best record for establishing aspiring personal trainers into the fitness industry. If you are looking to get ahead of the game in terms of understanding the science behind personal training and need the extra knowledge about how to market yourself as a trainer, then look no further, NASM is for you!
Over the past four months, I have learned more about nutrition, physiology, anatomy (my God, the anatomy you will learn in this course!), ethical business practices, and have I mentioned the exercise modules? Because WHOA! There is a TON of information regarding how to properly train clients through stabilization, strength and power phases of physical exertion. Overall, I am very happy with what I learned from NASM and have studied hard enough now that I am confident enough for the final exam.
So…it’s EXAM TIME!
I have put in the time and effort for this puppy and I believe I am ready now to bring on the New Year with this certification under my belt! If you are not currently a certified personal trainer and are looking for a solid program to give you the knowledge on how to train clients properly, effectively, and professionally, then NASM is for you! Take a look at the certification requirements for yourself and feel free to call up the agency to discuss any questions you may have about the program!
That’s all I wanted to say today. As always, remember to eat smart, train hard, and enjoy your life!
