Who Should Use this App?
There are three types of users for this App, Fitness Professionals, Fitness Clients and Exercisers:
- Fitness Professionals are personal trainers and others who hold a current and active NASM-CPT, CES or PES credential, or hold a CPT credential from another accredited certification body and assist people with implementing a fitness plan.
- Fitness Clients are the individuals who engage Fitness Professionals.
- Exercisers are individuals who use this App without affiliation with a Fitness Professional in order to participate in workouts delivered via the App.
Monthly Subscriptions. Monthly subscriptions are on a month-to-month basis. Your subscription begins on the day you subscribe. For example, if you subscribe on March 9, that subscription period will expire on April 7, thirty (30) days later. If you have purchased a monthly subscription, every thirty (30) days your subscription will automatically renew for the next month unless you cancel your subscription. Monthly subscriptions may only be purchased through an App Store. Your App Store will process the renewal automatically, using the payment form you provided to the App Store. You should receive a monthly account statement from your App Store reflecting these payments. Please note that you will not receive a notice that your subscription is about to expire or that it will automatically renew.
If you are a Fitness Professional, you may use the App for free provided that you have only one Fitness Client also using the App. Once you add a second Fitness Client, you will be required to enroll in subscription plan. You may choose the monthly subscription plan, as described above, at the published monthly rate for Fitness Professions (charged monthly) or a yearly subscription plan at the discounted yearly rate for Fitness Professionals (charged in full once annually). Both subscriptions plans allow you to add an unlimited number of Fitness Clients. If you want to cancel your subscription plan, you can return to the free “one client” use of the App, either by selecting the one Fitness Client you wish to maintain or by adding a new Fitness Client.
If you are an Exerciser, each workout program, such as the Wake-Up Workout, is provided for a monthly period as described herein (each a “Workout Program”). Once enrolled in a Workout Program, you will receive daily workouts for the month and, when the month is completed, automatically will be enrolled for the next month of the Workout Program until you cancel your subscription for that Workout Program.
We anticipate offering different subscription types (for example, annual subscriptions) in the future. As these new subscription types become available, we will provide you with information concerning the terms and conditions of each type of subscription.
Payments: Monthly subscriptions may only be purchased through an App Store. All payments for monthly are made and processed through your App Store. The Company does not collect monthly subscription payments directly and does not keep your payment information. Payments are made in advance for the next thirty (30) day period. If you signed up through an App Store, you may change your payment method through the corresponding store account.
As new subscription types become available, new payment methods also may become available, such as online payments or phone payments made directly to the Company. If you provide payment directly to the Company, you authorize our third-party payment processor to receive, store and encrypt your payment information. If your payment provider determines that there are fraudulent charges on your account resulting from the payment method you provided to us, please contact us immediately.
Refunds: We do not offer refunds on monthly subscriptions. If you cancel your subscription mid-month, you will continue to have access to the App through the end of the subscription month. If you purchased your subscription through an App Store, please review the policies of your App Store to determine whether they offer refunds.
Cancelling Your Subscription: If you have a subscription purchased through an App Store, you can cancel your subscription using the process provided by your App Store. We do not have the ability to cancel a subscription purchased through an App Store on your behalf. If you have purchased your subscription directly from the Company, please contact Customer Service at 800-460-6276 for assistance.
If you are a Fitness Professional, we will attempt to preserve your historical data and client list for a minimum of one year after you have cancelled your subscription. If you elect to re-subscribe, you should use the Account your previously established. If you do so, you will be able to access the data and client list from your prior subscription. Please note that we may not be able to provide access to your historical data if the data is inadvertently corrupted or lost. We reserve the right to change the retention period for data linked to an inactive Account.
If you are a Fitness Client, you do not need to purchase a subscription. You will receive access to the App by invitation from your Fitness Professional. If your Fitness Professional has cancelled his/her subscription, you will continue to have access to any Program developed for you by your Fitness Professional through the last day set in the Program. For example, if your Fitness Professional gave you a 4-Week Training Program and then cancels his/her App subscription in the second week, you will be able to complete the 4-Week Program using the App. Additionally, you will be able to log into your Account even after your last Program ends. You also might want to transfer to a new Fitness Professional; please see the section on “Transferring Between Fitness Professionals” below.
If you are an Exerciser and you have enrolled in more than one Workout Program, you will need to cancel each Workout Program separately in order to cancel your subscription. You will not have access to your historical data if you cancel your subscription and subsequently re-subscribe.
As an Edge subscriber, you may have the opportunity to make in-app purchases of instructional content on a one-time basis. Such content will be offered at a fixed price and the content will be available to you for the period of time you maintain your subscription. If you allow your subscription to lapse, you risk losing access to the instructional content. Notwithstanding the foregoing, NASM reserves the right to withdraw any content that it determines is out-of-date, inaccurate or otherwise should be removed from use.
If you purchase content that is intended to help you study and prepare for an accredited certification examination offered by NASM or any other certification provider, such material is designed to refresh your knowledge. Use of such material does not guarantee success on a certification examination.
All App users will need to complete an account registration (“Account”). In creating an Account with NASM, you will be required to provide certain information. When establishing your Account, you agree to:
- You agree to protect your username and password, as well as any access codes and product codes provided by the Company, and not share them with others or permit any unauthorized use of the Products and Services.
- You certify and represent that you will be the person using the Products and Services for which you have registered.Sharing an Account is not permitted and can lead to termination of your right to use the App.
ESTABLISHING A FITNESS PROFESSIONAL/FITNESS CLIENT CONNECTION
In order to create a connection between a Fitness Professional and Fitness Client, the following steps must be completed:
- Both the Fitness Professional and the Fitness Client must obtain the App;
- Both of you need to have set up an Account;
- The Fitness Client must provide the Fitness Professional with his/her email address;
- The Fitness Professional will send the Fitness Client an invitation email through the App.
- When the Fitness Client “accepts” the invitation, the connection is established.
Once the connection is established, the Fitness Professional can work with his/her client to perform assessments, set training programs and communicate. Both the Fitness Professional and the Fitness Client will be able to review any data about the Client and how the Client is performing. That connection will remain in place until, if ever, the Fitness Client arranges a transfer of his/her data to a different Fitness Professional.
To be clear, all fitness data about a Fitness Client is kept in the Client’s Account. Access to that data by a Fitness Professional only occurs if the Fitness Client accepts an invitation from the Fitness Professional. A Fitness Client may only connect his/her Account to one Fitness Professional at any time.
TRANSFERRING BETWEEN FITNESS PROFESSIONAL
If you are a Fitness Client and you would like to transfer your fitness data (such as past assessment results or program details) from one Fitness Professional to another, you need to follow these steps:
- Confirm that your new Fitness Professional has a subscription to the App;
- Provide your new Fitness Professional with your email address;
- Your new Fitness Professional will send you an invitation email through the App to become a client.You will receive a warning that when you accept the invitation, your data will be switched to your new Fitness Professional (in other words, you cannot give more than one Fitness Professional access to your data at the same time).
- Complete the transfer by “accepting” the invitation.
SUSPENDING APP ACCESS
We reserve the right to suspend a user’s access to the App if the App is being misused or if the Fitness Professional’s credentials (NASM CPT, CES or PES) are revoked due to violation of the Code of Professional Conduct or other rules and requirements set forth in the NASM Candidate Handbook (available on the NASM website). We also reserve the right to periodically confirm the status of a Fitness Professional’s credentials and to take such actions as it deems appropriate should a credential lapse or be revoked, including cancelling a subscription to the App.
We reserve the right to temporarily make the App inaccessible when conducting maintenance. Reasonable efforts will be made to schedule maintenance at non-peak times but this may not always be within our control.

We generally will not provide refunds or credits for service disruptions but reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to evaluate each occurrence to determine whether an exception to this policy is warranted.
