Your fitness career starts here.

For over 30 years, NASM has been a first choice around the world, with over 500,000 enrollments and counting1 - people just like yourself who honed their passion for fitness to become an NASM Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT).

And were they satisfied? Absolutely. In fact, 93% of NASM-CPTs were satisfied with the information and quality of NASM’s personal training certification program2.

Certified Personal Trainers can set their own hours. Work every day in gyms instead of offices. Do what they love every day with people they enjoy. And work in an industry that's expected to grow more than 16% through 20203.
