Why Earn Your NASM – CPT

Becoming a certified personal trainer (CPT) qualifies you to work with many different populations of people and allows you the proper credentials to work just about anywhere. Not everyone is hiring someone with only a group fitness, yoga, Zumba or boxing certification, but almost every fitness facility or program is looking for a good certified personal trainer. Of course its a plus to have a specialty, such as group fitness, yoga or boxing, but these minor credentials that alone typically will get over looked in a resume pile. Your CPT lets employers know you understand how the body works and what type of exercise programming is required to help a client achieve their goals safely.

Sports Nutrition Specialization

Exercise is really only 25% of the whole picture when it comes to health. The other 75% is nutrition! 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.

The Course Format

The average completion time of the course is (10) weeks, however you may accelerate this timeline by working ahead to finish early. The curriculum covers all your NASM CPT material as well as a special section all about goal specific nutrition.

Job Placement Assistance

There is no lack of employers that want to hire our graduates in Houston. From large commercial gyms like Golds, 24 Hr Fitness and LA Fitness, to out door boot camps like Camp Gladiator, they all want a qualified and knowledgeable Fitness Trainer Academy trainer to join their team. We allow employers to schedule presentations for current students, we have live job boards, we can even help facilitate interview with your idea employer after graduation. The support from us doesn’t end when you finish your course. We are your lifetime resource.

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.
