At the American Academy of Personal Training School, we have partnered with the National Academy of Sports Medicine to offer NASM certification preparation in NYC.
There are other certification programs available, but we selected NASM after carefully considering the curriculum, the ability to provide a hands-on approach to training that would truly benefit our students, as well as the reputation of the curriculum and the competency and professional skills of graduates from the program.
Choosing NASM certification means that we offer a full 48 clock hours with hands-on instruction for our training program. This will prepare our students to complete the NASM certification exam.
Once the NASM certification is granted, students have the ability to pursue specializations within NASM in performance enhancement and corrective exercise. These are great additional classes to take that offer different employment opportunities or the ability for a personal trainer to market their services to a niche audience. Additionally, certification through NASM will allow students to obtain professional insurance at a reduced cost, which is always a consideration for those working on building their own business.
