I am a NASM certified PT and I want to get a specialization for CEUs and to improve my marketability. I want to be able to help the people around me, in addition to my clients, lose weight and pick up healthy lifestyle habits, and I can’t decide whether the weight management specialization or the behaviour change is more practical and useful when applying what I learn to my clients/close friends. Also, would I be able to give comprehensive programs that they can follow (and some advice in a non-gym setting, like one-to-one consultations in an office setting), or will I only be giving general guidelines to my clients at the gym/studio?
Hello Raghad Anas,
Behavior change is more rounded for all clients to make better decisions. Weight management is geared for the people with obesity. Do you remember hearing your clients ask for help with one or the other more often? That would be the way to go. You can always take the other course later.
