"If you are a fitness professional and have any interest in learning how to design home gyms from the ground up, I highly recommend the NASM Home Gym Design Course. I kept finding myself blown away at all of the factors I never considered about building a home gym . . . by the end of this course, you’ll know more about fitness goal alignment and equipment selection than you ever thought you needed to know. This is one of those “I didn’t even know what I didn’t know” experiences."
