Why Choose an NSCA-Certified Personal
There are over 200 personal trainer
certifications in the country, many not so reputable. The top two are the NSCA
and the ACSM. Many personal trainers are not even certified and may not be
properly trained in issues such as
injury prevention, special populations (ie.
people with various health issues or special needs), or safety issues.
National Strength and Conditioning Association is a nonprofit,
educational organization established in 1978 that provides resources and
opportunities for professionals in strength and conditioning and related fields.
It is recognized as the worldwide authority on strength and conditioning for
improved physical performance. With more than 30,000 members located in 52
countries, the NSCA draws upon its vast network of coaches, athletic trainers,
physical therapists, educators, researchers and physicians to develop and
present the most up-to-date information on strength training and conditioning
and personal training practices, injury prevention and research findings.

Instruction is an eight-course, university level program.
