BECOME AN NASM INTERNATIONAL CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER


Make money empowering others to change their lives!

 
 

WHY NASM-CPT?

NASM is one of the World’s most respected Personal Trainer certifications, having been a leader in the field since 1987 and the inventor of the widely respected OPT Model™.

The OPT model creates a framework for you to use with yourself or clients of any starting point, background and goals to create effective programs that are scientifically relevant, effective and useful.

Yes, it's known around the world for being one of the BEST Personal Trainer Certificates.

But that's just what it is. The real question is, what can it do for you?

AVERAGE Vs. OUTSTANDING

There are two types of people who want to be Personal Trainers.

1 - They want a piece of paper that will let them slack off in the gym all day, sometimes helping clients take selfies and counting reps using a "cookie cutter" program.

2 - They strive to demonstrate the level of passion and knowledge that will empower them to change lives in meaningful and permanent ways.

If you're number 1, don't feel bad, you're in good company. 90% of the Trainers out there are the same as you. There's plenty of places you'll be welcome, it's just that Evolution isn't one of them.

If you're number 2, you came to the right place. We're revolutionizing the world of fitness education, one person at a time.

There's an expression in the fitness world

Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care

We're not only going to teach you what you need to know but also HOW you need to deliver it so that you inspire passion to change in others.

The world is getting fatter, sicker and less active. The "traditional" fitness industry has failed, catastrophically, to help people.

But we are part of a cohort of Renegade Trainers that throw away all of the old doctrines and take a holistic approach that actually gets results.

If you want to stake your claim in the vibrant future instead of the decaying past, reach out and get in touch, we'd love to hear from you!

GOT QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NASM-CPT COURSE?


The only stupid question is one you didn't ask...

FAQs

1

What Is The CPT Course?

Let’s start out by telling you what it isn’t:
  • We don’t teach you specific exercises, or specific ways of achieving specific goals.
  • We won’t tell you that one way of exercising is better than any other.
  • We won’t spend hours on end lecturing you on the names of body parts like a High School biology class.
  • It isn’t a course where you’ll be sitting and listening to the “experts” every day.
Here’s what it is:
  • You will learn a framework that you can apply to any person, in any condition, with any goal - and accelerate their progress while keeping them safe.
  • You’ll be taught some knowledge and then you’ll be getting up, practicing and adapting and using it for yourself.
  • It’s a safe environment to experiment and grow as a Coach and athlete, asking any questions you want as we go along to ensure you can apply it instantly for better results.
Whether you’re entirely new to the industry or a veteran, you’ll come away with a clear framework and solid foundation for success.

Why Should I Take This Course With Evolution?

Because we believe it’s the best!

Well, we would say that, wouldn’t we?!

But in all honesty, we really try to do everything we possibly can to make that a reality.

We selected the course in the first place because it fits with our mantra of “don’t sell bullshit”. With so much junk out there, we wanted to bring something to the market that actually benefits the Coaches and most importantly, the clients in a real and genuine way.

Our students are our best asset. When they feel like something is interesting, or needs improving, or could be adapted in another way - they tell us!

That’s why we’ve created a whole host of additional material to make your learning experience better.

This material is exclusive to people who take the course with us and takes us a lot of time and effort to put together, but we don’t charge you a single Baht for any of it.

Why?

Because your success is the best form of return on investment we could ever ask for.

Where and when do I take the exam?

The final exam must be taken at New Moves in Chid Lom, as this is the registered exam center for Thailand. You get 3 attempts at the final exam included in your course cost. We regularly run "exam days" and spaces are on a "first come, first served" basis. If you'd like to get booked in just send us a message and let us know and we will book you in.

How Long is The Course?

The course is really split into two sections; live teaching and self study.

Live Teaching

The live teaching part of the course is 24 hours of teaching usually taught over 4 days (6 hours per day).

The purpose of this is not only to give you a good introduction to the NASM OPT model and why/how you will use it to bring value and results to yourself or your clients, but also to add hugely valuable practical experinece working with clients (which will be your fellow course participants and instructors).

While having a solid understanding of the scientific fundamentals of WHY you do what you do with a client is extremely important, it is nothing without knowing HOW to do it. Making a client feel understood, relaxed, confident and successful is absolutely pivotal to your success in the industry. Learning these lessons from your NASM Master Trainer and one of Thailand's most saught after Coaches is value that money just can't buy.

Self Study

The second part of the course is the self study.

There is a lot of knowledge that you need to know to really be able to bring value to your clients. At Evolution and through NASM we strongly believe that just using "copy and paste" templates and helping people take selfies is absolutely unacceptable.

Being a trainer means that a person has entrusted not only their hard earned money but most importantly, their safety and health, to you. You should be committed to increasing your knowledge to the point where this trade is equitable.

In the self study section, with help from the provided textbook and multimedia online content, you will learn the scientific principles and information you need to ensure that what you're doing with your clients is safe, effective and useful to them.

Depending on your commitment and how quickly you can pick up the knowledge, most people complete this part and are ready for the exam within 1-3 months.

Once I've finished the course and passed the exam am I qualified to work as a Trainer?

This question isn't as easy to answer as you might expect. We're always honest with our students, so we'll tell you straight!

The Personal Trainer industry almost everywhere in the world is unregulated. This means that there are no minimum requirements required to work as a Trainer (whether employed or self employed). This is even the case in some places where insurance is essential.

For this reason, you don't necessarily have to have a CPT certificate but in the real world both employers and clients will require one almost all the time.

In most cases, employers will expect this as a minimum and require you to do further on the job or formal training. If you're serious about helping people you should be excited about this. If you're not, don't bother going into the industry at all. The last thing we need are more low knowledge, low motivation trainers. If making a living posing in the gym and taking selfies is your dream, go be an "influencer" on Instagram; the value to the industry is about the same. If however you really want to make a difference in people's lives, read on.

For those employers and clients who expect you to invest enough in yourself to be knowledgeable before stepping in front of trusting, paying clients, they will expect to see a valid CPT and CPR/AED certificate (see next question for more info) from a reputable provider, of which 4 are the best known and NASM is in almost every review number 1 or number 2.

So the short answer is "yes", you are likely to be able to go out and get work once you've passed your exam.

Are There Any Pre-requisites For Doing This Course?

The only pre-requisite is that you hold a current CPR/AED certification from a recognized issuing body. These skills are invaluable at knowing how to act if someone around you suffers from sudden cardiac arrest (the biggest killer of adults).

If you don’t already have one, don’t worry, we usually offer a course with each CPT class and you can do it together with your fellow students. The cost is 6000 Baht and you'll take the exam on the day of the course.
10

When and Where Is The Next Course?

The next course is on January 26th, 27th and February 2nd and 3rd 2019 (total of 4 days) from 11am to 6pm each day at New Moves studio, right off of Chid Lom BTS station.
