Faster Results with Better Program Design

As a personal trainer, understanding the elements that make up a fitness program is imperative. That is why all CPT Certifications provide a basic overview of what goes into program design. While these certifications touch on some basic skills like acute variables, they miss out on providing true insight into what makes a program work and why.

If you’re looking to take your fitness programming to the next level this course is for you.

Its time to take your current skills and build on them to become a program design expert for goals like increasing muscle size, improving body composition, increasing athletic performance and many more.

Starting by defining what a great fitness program contains, we take you through the step by step process of creating effective fitness programs including movement preparation, muscle activation, postural considerations, effective split routines, and resistance training systems. 

Then we pair proper volume and the primary and accessory fitness movement best suited for the specific goal, to teach you how to create an endless amount of perfectly periodized fitness programs for all goals.

This type of knowledge will lead to the best possible retention of your clientele as it will create consistent goal achievement with an emphasis on progression.

Over the last 15 years working in the health and fitness industry and over 10 years as a college professor and athletic coach, Eddie Lester, the founder and CEO of Fitness Mentors, has created and used the techniques presented in this course to assist thousands of personal trainers in building fitness and health programs that lead to optimal adaptation and results.

Not only is this course great for expanding your knowledge and enhancing your craft, but it allows you to gain the much needed Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to re-certify your CPT certification. (NASM 1.9, ACE 2.0, NESTA 2.0, ISSA 2.0, AFAA 15, NCCPT 2.0, NSCA 1.5)
