-- Already recognized for its global online personal training programs and certification, the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA) recently expanded its local, personal training workshops from coast to coast. As a supplement to its online programs, the personal training workshops, provided by Training Made Fun, are now available in Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Kansas, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
The two-day personal training workshops offer the NESTA Personal Fitness Training certification, which is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and is valid for four years, unlike most two-year certifications. Continuing education credits are also awarded for current personal trainers looking to expand their knowledge base.
"To complement your online training or to take your personal training career to the next level, these live, local workshops can help you with everything from exercise progression to developing a successful personal training business," said John Spencer Ellis, founder of NESTA and John Spencer Ellis Enterprises, a leading national fitness and personal development solutions company.
"We are pleased to expand options for high-caliber, in-person training to so many new states and locations and look forward to working with even more outstanding personal fitness trainers this year."
The personal training program includes education on anatomy, exercise physiology, kinesiology, biomechanics, program design, hands-on instruction, progressing and regressing exercises, and more. The cost ranges from $389 to $409, with discount rates available for club chains and through referrals; the price includes an exam study guide, workbook, the workshop and the NESTA Personal Fitness Trainer Certification Exam. Payment plans for the workshops are also available.
Workshop provider Training Made Fun is a sports and fitness training company that focuses on the education and professional development of personal trainers, instructors and coaches.
Since 1992, the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA) has been a leader in innovative solutions for fitness, nutrition and wellness professionals, as well as club owners. Founded by John Spencer Ellis, NESTA now has more than 55,000 members in 55 countries, and it is one of the largest fitness associations in the world, as well as the fastest growing association of its kind in the United States.
