If you’re looking for more information on the organizations I have studied through, you can find their contact information here. I have also posted a few other useful links for people interested in more in-depth knowledge on any topics covered on this site:
ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) – A world leader in exercise-related research. One of the largest certifying bodies in the world, the ACSM is responsible for setting guidelines and protocols for countless exercise and health standards that are used throughout the world today. Also the largest certifying body in the field of clinical exercise physiology and a top researcher in preventable hypomobility diseases. Their ACSM-CPT was my first personal trainer certification.
NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) – Renowned for its dedication to ongoing contributions in the fields of strength training research and exercise technique, the National Strength and Conditioning Association is the certifying body behind the highly respected CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) distinction, which is used throughout the U.S. and beyond by collegiate and professional-level athletic strength coaches.
RTS (Resistance Training Specialist) – A program that provides a unique and eye-opening perspective on the human body and how exercise ACTUALLY affects it. With biomechanics education that is second to none, the RTS organization is committed to providing a superior understanding of how the human body responds to the forces that go through it, as well as how those forces can be strategically manipulated. One of the best classes I’ve ever taken!
ISSN (International Society of Sports Nutrition) – A wonderful organization that promotes the advancement of sport nutrition science and works to develop professionals in the fields of exercise science and sports nutrition. These are truly some great people, and I’m proud to be friends with a number of very active members within the organization. If you have an interest in nutrition, you owe it to yourself to check them out!
