I was wondering about Nasm Pes before enrolling, but after went through manual I was so eager to take part of it since the information in the text book really useful practically. It had given what we use in daily training program than more theoretical. Easy to understand and apply in reality. Thank you

I found the material to be informative and very detailed. The reading and studying was very organized and the guides were very helpful. I think that this is a great plan for someone to get better trained and certified for a career in performance training.

In my opinion, the Performance Enhancement Specialist (NASM-PES) and Corrective Exercise Specialist (NASM-CES) are an absolute must for anyone new to Personal Training. After completing the NASM-CPT course, I felt that I had a good base, but after completing these two courses, as well as the Certified Nutrition Consultant (NASM-CNC) course, my confidence definitely increased. Within 3-weeks of being on the job in my first personal training position, I have already utlized what I have learned from all of these courses.
