Coach Boyd Epley, NSCA Founder, would like to invite NSCA members to drop by Headquarters in Colorado Springs for a workout. That invitation goes out to all NSCA members, but especially the Associate Members who may not be as familiar with all the great things the NSCA has to offer.


Whether you are a sport coach, physical educator, personal trainer, fitness instructor, tactical instructor or an avid athlete, you can begin your strength and conditioning career with Associate Membership. This introductory membership has many benefits including a free Basics of Strength and Conditioning Manual, which features a safe, effective 12-week program for athletes. The following online quarterly publications are also available to Associate Members:

  • NSCA Coach provides valuable takeaways for coaches and athletes.
  • Personal Training Quarterly (PTQ) is designed specifically for the personal trainer.
  • TSAC Report is comprised of exclusive content for tactical facilitators and athletes.
