About this course
NASM is the abbreviation used to describe the US-based National Academy of Sports Medicine. The organisation has been operational for over 20 years and their health and fitness, sports performance and sports medicine training courses are among the most highly regarded in the industry, and internationally recognised.
The NASM certified Personal Trainer Bridging Course enables those already qualified as Personal Trainers to further develop their knowledge of exercise science, and their Personal Training skills. It also provides a method to learn the application of the NASM ‘Optimum Performance Training Model’, which is considered to be one of the most effective methods to achieve client progression and increase goal-achievement.
At the centre of the OPT™ model is a thorough kinetic chain assessment, and during the course learners will have the opportunity to explore the head-to-toe fitness assessment that is the ‘Overhead Squat’ – a systematic approach that evaluates an individual’s strengths and weaknesses in the areas of posture, movement, strength, and flexibility The NASM certified Personal Trainer Bridging Course is aimed at individuals who would like the recognition of being ‘NASM certified’ to accompany their current Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification.
Due to the number of CPD points available for the NASM certified Personal Trainer Course, undertaking the NASM certified Personal Trainer Bridging Course along with the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training is an approach to becoming NASM certified whilst also being recognised in the UK as a REPS Level 3 Personal Trainer. This qualification is therefore ideal for individuals who have already obtained the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training as a means to enhance their CV’s and reputation, progress their careers, and potentially increase their employability and earning potential.
