Part of our base curriculum is a heavy emphasis on nutrition and how to implement a nutrition plan with the least amount of psychological or physiological stress on the client. Because we have an entire section of the course dedicated to nutrition we also issue a Nutrition Specialization Credential when you complete the program.

What Can A Certified Personal Trainer Expect to Earn

A personal trainer’s income in the US is between $42,000 and $72,000 with a national average of $59,000. If you are working part-time, expect to earn $25,000 to $35,000. The top 10% of trainers that work full time can expect to earn between $70,000 and $100,000 or more. The ability to thrive as a personal trainer is heavily dependent on a trainers ability to connect with others and convey a deep understanding of fitness and nutrition concepts. As with any job that involves sales,  you really get out of it, what you put into it.

Transferring From A NASM-CPT Online Course

As an official NASM Academic Partner, if you begin a NASM-CPT online course and decide that its just not for you, we can transfer you into our program and help you get a refund from NASM for your original purchase. Online courses can be slightly less expensive and more convenient at times, but nothing replaces a hands-on experience like we provide. Kid, Spouses, Pets, Chores and countless other things can be distracting during a home study course. When enrolled in our course, the 3-4 hrs you spend in class a week is the only commitment you are making and its completely free of life distractions.

*Keep in mind that the ability to qualify for a refund will depend on the how long ago you purchased your NASM online program. Contact us for more details.
