CHANDLER, Ariz., April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- An exciting new show debuts on NBC this April and the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) is a part of it. Hosted by NASM-certified personal trainer and fitness celebrity Gabby Reece, STRONG premieres on April 13. The show, which has Sylvester Stallone on-board as an executive producer, pairs 10 of America's top trainers with 10 everyday women who want to fulfill their fitness potential.
NASM is proud to be associated with the show because the program highlights the added value a personal trainer can bring in helping others achieve their fitness goals, "Qualified personal trainers have the knowledge and skill to help clients lead healthier more active lives," said Andrew Wyant, president of NASM. "With the help of a certified personal trainer (CPT), people are better able to overcome challenges and obstacles on their way to stronger physical and emotional health. You'll see this on the show and at your local gyms that invest in the best certified trainers."
By using science-based training techniques proven in the world's top gyms and in the professional arena, NASM-certified personal trainers (CPTs) are well equipped to help clients achieve maximum results. NASM-CPTs can feel confident knowing they have the nation's premier certification. "The trainer-client dynamic is critical. When trainers and clients work together as a team and trust one another, amazing things can happen," said Wyant.
"Becoming a personal trainer and making a difference in people's lives oftentimes starts with an awareness of being passionate about fitness," said Gabby Reece, the show's host. "Next is finding a respected program that is worthy of the investment. A NASM certification has worked out really well for me."
NASM is celebrating the show's premiere with a special offer. People that have contemplated the possibilities of being a personal trainer like Gabby Reece will have the perfect opportunity to start now. More details can be found here: nasmstrong.com.
