When it comes to personal training certifications there are hundreds of programs to choose from...so why did I choose the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)???

1) Accreditation 

NASM's certified personal trainer program is accredited by the NCCA (National Commission for Certifying Agencies).  It was important to me to earn a certification from a recognized and accredited organization.

2) NASM's OPT Model

The Optimum Performance Training (OPT) model is the fitness industry's first training program founded on scientific, evidence-based research.  It allows a client of any level to concurrently improve flexibility, core stabilization, balance, strength, power, and cardiorespiratory endurance.  I love the systematic approach and the techniques work.  Using these principles, any client can achieve optimal levels of physiologic, physical, and performance adaptations.

3) Education

NASM is well-known for their quality of education.  They offer many progressive specializations which will allow me to continually increase my knowledge in health and fitness.
