Tony Ambler-Wright Review 5 stars

"I could probably say that I owe my career and where I'm at today to the Corrective Exercise Specialization . By implementing the assessments, programming, and solutions that I learned through the CES program, it allowed me to work with a wide variety of clients that I might not have been able to work with and help achieve their goals otherwise."

James Llamas review 5 stars

"You can do all the right things physically, and if you're not right nutritionally, it's a pretty uphill battle from there. Nutrition is also really key because, diet and exercise, those are the two components to being healthy."

Rick Richey review 5 stars

"I know when I first started training with the CES, that's when my business picked up and I started getting a lot more clients and a lot of people that I wouldn't have normally seen. I wanted to train a lot of the athletic folks, and it's been amazing that even with elite athletes that I've trained, I do more of corrective exercise with them than probably almost anything else."

Mike Fantagrassi Review 5 stars

"I'm very passionate about the Corrective Exercise Specialist because it's something that helped propel my career. In 2006 that's when I was exposed to the NASM corrective exercise specialization. I went through the course and it really transformed my business as a trainer. I became a lot busier because I knew I could work with a wider variety of clients. But on a personal level it helped me. I wasn't moving that great. I was in my early 30s, and I had some pain in my hip and also my shoulders from lifting heavy. And by following the protocols in the program I felt better. I became very passionate about corrective exercise, and I help teach other people how to get this as well."

Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) , Certified Nutrition Coach (CNC), and Group Fitness Instructor (GFI) are certifications, which means you must recertify every two years. NASM's Recertify for Life Program gives you the opportunity to avoid these renewal fees, as well as receive extra benefits.

On the contrary, the Corrective Exercise Specialization (CES), Performance Enhancement Specialization (PES), and Behavior Change Specialization (BCS) are specializations, not certifications, which means they do not need to be renewed. Once you pass your final exam for these specializations, your certificates never expire.

In order to recertify, NASM-CPTs and GFIs are required to earn 2.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every two years. Both the Corrective Exercise Specialization and the Nutrition Coach Certification are worth 1.9 CEUs, meaning that after completing these courses you would already have more than enough CEUs to recertify!

You have 6 months to complete the NASM-CPT final exam, and 1 year to complete your NASM-CES and CNC final exam. Each course is typically completed in just 8-12 weeks, and the NASM-CPT course is completed in as few as 4 weeks. Extensions are available for each course for an additional fee.

Although the exams expire, you will maintain access to the NASM-CPT content for 1 year upon purchase and access to the NASM-CES and NASM-CNC content for 5 years or the life of the product; whichever expires first. This allows you to go back and reference the rich course content during the beginning of your career.

The OPT® model is our 5-phase training model that starts with Stabilization and ends with Power. The NASM-CPT program utilizes the Optimum Performance framework to ensure that all NASM-CPTs are well-versed in our training methods. Read here to learn more about the OPT® Model.

The Corrective Exercise Continuum (CEx) is the foundation for the entire Corrective Exercise Specialization. It is a 4-step process for assessing and correcting human movement for clients. The 4 steps are talked about more in depth in our guide to the CEx.

CPT and Group Fitness Instructor (AFAA-GFI) are NCCA accredited certifications, meaning you must pass a live proctored exam, which can be administered online or in-person. On the contrary, the other final exams are administered online and can be taken from the comfort of your own home, or wherever you prefer to take tests.

Don't fret! A free retest is included as part of the NASM-CPT Guided Study program. For more details, please refer to your Candidate Handbook.
