"This was an excellent course. I paid for the guided study and loved it. My instructor responded immediately if I had any questions. The online webinars provided great info, and the forums with other students were very useful. I’m glad I decided to do the guided study so I had access to all of those resources. This is the only certification I would get, because it is the best one out there. I passed in 76 days thanks to their excellent program!"
- Shannon Mateo

"I started my fitness career with another certifying agency as a Personal Trainer, Everyone I've turned to for employment or a chance to prove myself turned me down every time due to the fact it wasn't accredited or recognized.
With a unwavering desire for a career in the fitness industry, I turned to NASM, studying their CPT program, and passing the exam. While in the end of my studies, I had places wanting to work with me! "
