NASM Live Workshop

I’m very excited about today because I’m going to my first personal trainers live workshop.  There are several conferences and workshops put on throughout the year and this one is put on by my certifying agency: the National Academy of Sports Medicine.  I learn by doing so this will be a great refresher for me and I’m hoping to not only pick up some new ideas but meet some new people!

Eventually I would REALLY love to go out to one of the Perform Better Summits or their Learn-By-Doing Seminars, but I just haven’t gotten the funding to go yet.  I live down at the bottom of the country by the ocean which, while it has its perks, also means there isn’t a large metropolitan area or airport nearby and everything is far away.

If you haven’t heard of the Perform Better Summits before, you should really check them out.  Here are a breakdown of a few of them:

Three Day Functional Training Summits

    Great post Angela, these events are very important. In our industry we’re constantly attending training events such as this. Actually, we’re trying to get together with NASM right now to show them our new fitness software for personal trainers and clubs to manage their clients, and for clients to be “plugged in” seamlessly with their trainer and/or gym… it’s called FitnessMgr.
