Premier Global NASM continues to add value to its Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training Certification, offering learners and graduates free access to Archon’s world renowned fitness testing and profiling software platform. Speaking of the partnership, Dan Rees, MD at Premier Global NASM, explains: “Regular fitness testing and profiling provides fitness professionals with an evidence-based means of helping clients understand the return on their training investment. A client who is able to understand and witness the fruits of their hard training labour is much more likely to remain engaged and motivated. Fitness testing, therefore, needs to be an integral component in any fitness professional’s arsenal. The Archon platform provides a premium service to fitness professional and is accessible anywhere, anytime via the Archon app.”
The Archon FitPro testing and profiling software enables assessments across six core performance disciplines: Anaerobic, Power, Agility, Aerobic, Strength and Bodyweight. The unique Archon training performance algorithm analyses results, gives instant feedback on current performance and provides workout recommendations that will drive performance improvements.
Matt Ford, Founder and CEO, Archon, says: “It’s fantastic to team up with Premier Global NASM. Both Kate Ford (Co-Founder and COO, Archon) and I launched our careers in fitness after gaining certification with Premier Training, the brand that became Premier Global NASM when the company was acquired by US based, Ascend Learning. To now be able to collaborate with the brand and support current and future fitness professionals is really rewarding on both a personal and professional level.
“We have developed this market leading software to provide trainers with an automated, scientifically-based means of accurately administering fitness assessments. Our software is fully endorsed by iconic brands that include: British Weight Lifting, British Rowing and Wattbike. We are delighted to now also add Premier Global NASM to our portfolio of best in class partners.”
The partnership went live in June 2021. All Premier Global NASM Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training learners and graduates will be offered free access to the Archon fitness testing and profiling software for a period of 6 months, after which they will be offered a discounted subscription to continue to access the platform and an opportunity to enlist on the Level 4 Archon Fitness Profiling Certification, taking advantage of their Premier Global NASM exclusive discount.
