As an NASM Women’s Fitness Specialist (WFS), you’ll help women meet their health and fitness goals by creating individualized training programs specific to their needs during each unique life phase.
Grow your career. You’ll be able to expand your expertise and help women—from adolescent to senior, pre- and postnatal to overweight—safely meet their health and fitness goals while also teaching them how exercise can positively impact their health.
Confidently work with pregnant clients. Apply recognized programming guidelines to keep your pregnant clients feeling fit, strong, and ready for the role of motherhood. Use exercise modifications for safe positioning and comfort, especially in the second and third trimesters.
Teach younger and older women. Younger women may be concerned with body shape and skill acquisition, whereas older women may focus on avoiding the physical decline that can accompany menopause. Whatever their life phase, the NASM WFS credential will give you the knowledge to successfully and safely address the needs of your female clients.
Tap the Optimum Performance Training Model™ (OPT™) model. You’ll learn to modify the OPT model to help women manage their weight, as well as apply corrective exercise training, cardiovascular training, and small group programming to female clients.
Help your clients succeed. Many women struggle with their weight, and the obesity trend continues to rise. You’ll learn to support your clients with nutritional guidance and weight loss approaches they can maintain for long term results.
