Premier Training International is delighted to announce a new partnership with NASM - the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
This exciting partnership unites two truly world class brands. NASM is the authority on personal training certification worldwide, and Premier Training International is the leading provider of fitness education and training in the UK. Premier Training International will be changing its name to Premier Global as part of the collaboration - the new partnership will be known as Premier Global NASM.
"The vision of Premier Global NASM is to inspire and educate fitness and wellness professionals, empowering and supporting them in their goal of helping clients change their lives, ultimately becoming healthier and happier," said Premier Global CEO Nick Bradley.
"We're confident that Premier's Master Coaches, armed with NASM's proven and proprietary approach, will transform the UK market - creating the most effective and trusted model of fitness and personal training education. It's about high-level achievement and results - so fitness professionals can provide significant value within our industry, transform lives, and excel at their careers."
When can you sign up to an NASM course?
From July, Premier Global's fitness professionals and personal trainers will have exclusive access to NASM's world renowned Optimum Performance Training (OPT) model. Available NASM courses include Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), Performance Enhancement Specialization (PES) and Corrective Exercise Specialization (CES). The CES course is focused on injury prevention, PES on improving athletic performance.
The Premier Global NASM partnership enables trainers and fitness professionals to extend their knowledge, education and portfolio. For Personal Trainers, the opportunities are impressive, providing a chance to expand skillsets and develop into an elite level trainer who can work with any type of client, including top-class athletes and professional sporting teams.
What is NASM?
NASM needs no introduction to anyone operating in the world of physical fitness but it's worth a quick recap. Their credentials are second to none. For over 20 years, NASM has been the global leader in the industry, setting the standard in education, certification and solutions for health and fitness, sports performance and sports medicine professionals.
NASM was founded in 1987 by Dr Bob Goldman. Since then, NASM has become known as one of the world's most trusted sources of health and fitness information, credibility coming from its scientifically-backed approach.
NASM also has an impressive roster of clients, having forged partnerships with some of the most respected sports clubs, franchises and institutions in the USA, including New York Knicks, Phoenix Suns, New York Yankees, Stanford University, UFC.
These are hugely sought after certifications and the benefits to Personal Trainers are multiple - not just increased expertise and knowledge but increased salaries too; in the US, NASM-CPTs with an NASM-PES earn 59% more than other Certified Personal Trainers.
Premier Training International believes this link-up with NASM opens exciting new career opportunities for already qualified professionals. Courses will be available at Premier locations across the UK, and progressively launched on our courses page here. Alternatively, call 020 3432 1507 for more details.
