Thank you for your service!

You love to be physically active, have a desire to help others, and were born to lead. That's why you made a career doing just that in the military. The logical next step? It's time to utilize those strengths as a Certified Personal Trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine™ (NASM), the leader, and the gold standard in the fitness industry.

As a small token of our appreciation for your hard work and sacrifices, we are proud to offer all military members like yourself and their families an exclusive 30% discount on our certifications and specializations. Since 2017, NASM has been recognized as a Military Friendly School, and our Certified Personal Training program is also eligible for military funding reimbursement. That means you can start a new career in fitness that you'll enjoy at a price you'll love.


How Military Reimbursement Programs Work with NASM

COOL & CA for Active Duty Military

The Credentialing Opportunities Online (COOL) or Credentialing Assistance (CA) programs can, in part, cover NASM programs. The specifics of this coverage vary greatly depending on your branch and military occupation. If you want to learn more about these programs or would like help clarifying which programs you qualify, please fill out the above form or contact our dedicated Military Funding Liaison directly at [email protected] or call 602-383-1238.

MyCAA for Military Spouses

If you are a military spouse approved for MyCAA funding, you are eligible to apply it to specific NASM programs. To learn how you can and to review the necessary steps, please fill out the above form or contact our dedicated Military Funding Liaison directly at [email protected] or call 602-383-1238. They will review the available MyCAA program options and assist you in compiling the required paperwork for you.

GI Bills

Another option available to you as a military member is the GI Bill. How it works is we'll set you up for regular enrollment in an eligible NASM program of your choosing. Upon passing the exam, you'll file paperwork with the VA, who will then reimburse you up to $599 for the exam cost for NASM Certified Personal Trainer, NASM Corrective Exercise Specialization, or NASM Performance Enhancement Specialization. To get started, please fill out the above form or contact our dedicated Military Funding Liaison directly at [email protected] or call 602-383-1238.
