Your peers had the same questions We’ve streamlined it for you

I'm an existing personal trainer. Why is it necessary for me to get certified?

Yes! While experience is important, equipping yourself with a well-recognised personal trainer certification that is based on research and client experience. NASM will not only increase your credibility as a personal trainer, you will gain fundamental knowledge to safely and effectively design fitness programs that help clients achieve their goals. 

As you gain a strong grasp on the fundamentals of fitness, movement, exercise science, training, and coaching, through the NASM-CPT certification, you will be empowered to train clients of all fitness levels and conditions, and thus expanding your earning opportunities. 

What differentiates NASM Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT) from other fitness certifications?

The NASM Optimum Performance Training (OPT) model sets NASM Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT) apart from the rest of the industry.

NASM’s Optimum Performance Training (OPT) model has been extremely successful in helping clients reduce their body fat, increase lean muscle mass and strength, and improve performance and overall health.

Do I need to re-certify? How often and why bother re-certifying? How much does it cost to re-certify? 

NASM Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT) graduates are required to undergo re-certification every 2 years. This ensures that NASM-CPT professionals are current with the best-practice guidelines and the specific knowledge, skills, and abilities. There is much to learn  when it comes to fitness so the re-certification requirement is just another way to ensure that trainers stay on top of their knowledge because when it comes to your career and your clients, don’t settle for less.

NASM-CPTs are required to complete 2.0 CEUs (Continuing Education Units) every two year certification period. This includes 0.1 CEUs from the mandatory CPR & AED certification.

There are 2 options for recertification,
Renew for 2 years - RM689
Renew for life (RFL) - RM1749

NASM’s Recertify for Life gives NASM Certified Personal Trainers (NASM-CPT) the opportunity to avoid bi-annual renewal fees with a one-time fee of RM1749. NASM-CPTs are still required to submit a recertification application and show proof of 2.0 CEUs (including a mandatory copy of a current CPR & AED cert) every 2 years.

“Over the past 3 days, I’ve gained a lot of useful knowledge on how to train clients properly and safely to improve posture and allow optimal performance. Not only that, I’ve also learnt effective communication skills when it comes to working with clients.

I’ll definitely recommend this fitness trainer course to my friends especially those who are passionate about fitness and interested in learning more about personal training. I am glad to be a part of the NASM family. Thank you Team PFC for everything you’ve done for us. Really appreciate it.”

Zi Wei
NASM Certified Personal Trainer

“I always love to challenge my limits. In 2017, had two painful lower back fractures and a rotator cuff injury during my preparation for my bodybuilding and men's physique competitions. It made me eager to learn more on how to keep training my best in every training session while staying injury-free. Searching online for the best personal trainer certificate that teaches the science behind training our body and how to keep improving without injuries, I found NASM-CPT which taught me how to train different body types and various conditions with proven scientific methods. Through Facebook, I found PFC Studio, they provide NASM-CPT program and after the live workshop from NASM master trainer Jeremy Ng and his team, I gained a better understanding on the personal training course and it has helped me a lot in passing the tough final exam. I'm thankful for master trainer Jeremy and the PFC team that helped clarify all my questions and even though I asked a lot, you guys still helped answer my questions clearly. I feel satisfied completing NASM-CPT but I know learning never ends and I will definitely keep coming back to learn more at PFC Studio."

"I really enjoyed the fitness course from a more scientific perspective and I absolutely loved the atmosphere of the workshop! It helped me gain a deeper understanding of fitness and the exercises in terms of why we should do it in certain ways.

The live workshop was very well organised, clear instructions, very detailed, and very enthusiastic coaches!”
