 Build upon everything you learn in the NASM-CPT program and take it to the next level with NASM’s Corrective Exercise Specialization Self-Study program. Help clients prevent injuries and how to refine and advance your skills by identifying little issues before they become big issues for your clients. Then use that information to craft specific and individualized workout strategies and routines for any client to help them move better and avoid injuries.

Finally, tie it all together with our Stretching and Flexibility Coach course (NASM-SFC). This comprehensive offering dedicated to corrective exercise teaches you to master the techniques needed to help clients stretch better. From assessing their needs to providing stretching plans to enhance their mobility and training safety, you’ll help clients live a more fluid and flexible life.

When complete, you’ll be able to harness the combined power of NASM’s OPT™ Model and Corrective Exercise Continuum (CEx) to create an individualized fitness strategy for each client. Expand your knowledge, stretch your earning potential, and better help your clients!

Why Combine Personal Training,
Stretching & Corrective Exercise?

  • Increase your earning potential by offering a unique, specialized skillset
  • Reach a wider group of potential clients
  • Start your fitness career off right with the knowledge to fully address your clients' needs
  • Program more efficient and effective workouts
  • Create unique and tailored fitness programs for each client
  • Earn enough Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to recertify your Trainer Certification


NASM’s Personal Trainer Certification (NASM-CPT) is an NCCA accredited certification, meaning you must recertify every two years by earning Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

The Corrective Exercise Specialization (CES) and Stretching and Flexibility Coach (SFC) are specializations, not certifications, which means they do not need to be renewed. Once you pass your final exam, your NASM-CES and NASM-SFC specialization certificates never expires.

In order to recertify, NASM-CPTs are required to earn 2.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every two years. As part of this bundle, you will automatically earn 1.9 CEUs upon passing of your Corrective Exercise Specialization final exam. These are all the CEUs needed to recertify, as the remaining 0.1 CEUs are fulfilled by maintaining your current CPR and AED certifications.

You have 6 months to complete the NASM-CPT final exam and 1 year to complete your NASM-CES and NASM-SFC final exams. Extensions are available for each course for an additional fee.

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 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.

NASM’s Personal Trainer Certification (NASM-CPT) is an NCCA accredited certification, meaning you must pass a live proctored exam, which can be administered online or in-person. On the contrary, the Corrective Exercise Specialization (CES) and Stretching and Flexibility Coach (SFC) are specializations, not accredited certifications. The Corrective Exercise and Stretching and Flexibility 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. For the NASM-CES and NASM-SFC courses, you will have 3 attempts to pass the final exam.

Trainer Testimonials

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."

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."
