Muay Thai School USA has launched the Muay Thai Personal Trainer (MTPT) certificate program! Muay Thai Personal Trainer is an innovative new program providing skills for personal trainers to add to their toolbox and receive CEUs. This program is all online and adds a whole new dimension to training clients, whether virtually or in person. Trainers can fully renew with NASM and AFAA by taking the Muay Thai Personal Trainer certificate course!

Muay Thai Personal Trainer certificate course was created to bring all the benefits of the incredible martial art Muay Thai to the fitness world. Muay Thai School USA recognized that the physical and mental benefits of Muay Thai could be taught to personal fitness trainers in a step-by-step method and therefore add a whole new dimension to clients’ training.

Robin Hart, co-founder of Muay Thai School USA and an NASM trainer for over 20 years, says, “Especially now with the need to be as flexible as possible to accommodate the client’s preference whether to train virtually, in home, outdoors or at a gym, a Muay Thai workout allows for that flexibility with little or no equipment and can be performed both indoors or outside.”

Muay Thai, also known as the Art of Eight Limbs, is a martial art that originates from Thailand and uses the whole body with punches, kicks, knees and elbow strikes. Therefore, Muay Thai creates a fantastic cardiovascular workout and helps to improve balance, agility, strength and flexibility, to name just a few of the physical aspects. Muay Thai can also be used as a great way to relieve stress, which most people could benefit from now more than ever.

By becoming a Muay Thai Personal Trainer (MTPT), trainers will learn the art of Muay Thai, including the history of Muay Thai; step-by-step instructions on Muay Thai strikes for punches, kicks, knees and elbows; Thai pad holding techniques; how to create combinations; and a variety of drills, real-time workouts and quick reviews. This course also includes cues and corrections, FAQs, sample quizzes and a multiple-choice final quiz (2 attempts included). Upon passing the course, the trainer will receive a downloadable certificate of completion. Trainers will be able to fully renew with NASM (1.9 CEUs) and AFAA (15 CEUs) by earning this certificate.

Once the trainer has completed the course and becomes an MTPT, there is no need to continually renew the certificate, however. Muay Thai School USA will be providing more courses in the near future for those trainers who would like to continue to develop their skills and knowledge and accumulate more continuing education units!

The step-by-step tutorial videos, along with downloadable text, will allow trainers to teach the art of Muay Thai confidently, effectively and safely to people of all ages (children and adults) and to all fitness levels.

“Creating Muay Thai Personal Trainer course and bringing the benefits of Muay Thai to the fitness world has been a dream come true! I look forward to creating many more CEU courses in the near future.” says Hart.
