Learn the Latest Training Strategies and (Most Importantly!) How to Apply It

Don’t be taught outdated information! Our course is decades ahead of our competitors, and is by far the most comprehensive the industry has ever seen. This course uses the most accurate and up-to-date science, then teaches you how to transform that science into real-world application.


Build a Successful Fitness Career

Learn everything you need to build a successful fitness career working in a gym, or even being your own boss and setting your own hours. The industry’s best personal trainer certification will prepare you for a long and lucrative career working with everyone from weekend warriors to professional athletes.


Train Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime with NASM’s World-Renowned OPT™ Model

The foundation of NASM’s certification is the exclusive Optimum Performance Training® Model. It’s your blueprint for success. The OPT™ Model provides you with a systematic approach to developing personalized and unique training plans that allow you to see predictable outcomes for every client. It’s a flexible and comprehensive system that allows you to create individualized training plans for any client, any time.


Master Accurate, Effective Client Assessments

Assessing, instead of guessing, is critical to successfully training a client. By understanding where the issues in their body are, you can then begin to figure out how to properly address underlying problems that could prevent them from reaching their end fitness goals.


Learn the Art of Behavior Change

Having a plan for your future personal trainer job is great, but knowing how to convince your clients to stick to it is even better. That’s where behavior change comes in. Within our course, you’ll learn the keys to helping people alter behaviors that prevent them from becoming the ultimate version of themselves.
