I have taken the NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist Certificate. I thought it was excellent. It had very good text book and on- line videos for each chapter.I found
the information useful and applicable with my personal training business.

I held back for a long time about taking a fitness certificate course due to the content that other fitness organizations put in into their course study that for me is not enough to compliment or support my Bsc in physical therapy. Finally, NASM delivered. There's no regrets about my decision to take PES and I feel more confident now in my fitness career that I could help more people with the knowledge I gained from NASM and be one of the best fitness pros in the market. Thanks NASM, you ROCK!

It's all about credentials, and NASM has all the answers!!
Having done both the CPT and PES courses, I can't tell you enough about how the programs get you ready to everyday work.
I highly recommend NASM to all those looking to go into a fitness career!!

You have 15 days to decide whether or not you want to continue pursuing the certificate program. I went for the WLS within that time frame changed my mind and told them to go ahead and cancel. I paid $99 for the course. They submit a request for a refund that takes 30 days to be reissued. The complaint is that they take 10% "restocking" fee. So instead of getting my $99 refunded for a trial I am being told I only get $64.14 back because of the restocking fee. The problem with this is that I'm being charged a restocking fee for a ONLINE course, something electronic. Obviously no one is restocking something that you're not even capable of touching, it is electronic in formation. They say try the program, you have 15 days, you'll get your money back. Then they take 30 days to reissue and take 10% to restock a virtual product.

If this is the area you want to pursue, great! My review is based solely on their ethical practices. The program was pretty cool and informative going through. I just think it is dead wrong for these people to be able to give you back what they want to give back even if you are not in the wrong and have proceeded correctly.

NASM is the ultimate program for functional training. As a martial artist I was interested in injury prevention and NASM had all the answers.

Most certifications skip the most important phase, which is the stabilization endurance phase and because of that we allow the weights and the environment to control us.

Now that I both teach and personally use the NASM principles, I have remained injury free, stronger than ever and I have much more control over my environment. I am very happy with the results.

I've done my NASM CPT exam!! I loved the course content, especially the OPT model. It makes complete sense and has helped me understand the importance of goal specific training and it helps to plan the workout programme specific towards that direction.

Great Certification! The science is nothing new, but the way it is presented and organized is very user friendly. If you are just starting out and are looking for a certification, you won't go wrong with NASM.

I cannot say enough good things about the professionalism of the NASM.
One slight problem I am having at the moment is that the Register of exercise professionals(REPs) in the uk will not except my Nasm credentials. This says more about Reps than NASM. The system in the United Kingdom is ridiculous. A 6 week below par course puts you at level 3 but they do not accept Nasm. Enraged with them right now:-(
Feel proud to be part of such a great organisation.
Can't wait to do CEX soon
