It's a fitness game changer.

The OPT Model

The OPT Model, or Optimum Performance Training Model, is a fitness training system developed by NASM. The OPT Model is based on scientific evidence and principles that progresses an individual through five training phases: stabilization endurance, strength endurance, hypertrophy, maximal strength and power.


NASM Optimum Performance Training (OPTTM) Model

With the power of OPT, you can take what you learned in NASM's Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT) program, and apply it quickly and confidently from the moment you start working with your first client.

With this easy-to-use model, you'll be able to help clients achieve their fitness goals, no matter their age or athletic ability - from beginners, to pros.

The OPT model - and NASM as a whole - is simply powerful.

OPT has been extremely successful in helping clients from diverse populations reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass and strength, and improve overall health and performance.
