Industry Leaders Look to Increase Educational Content, Resources and Certification Opportunities for Personal Trainers, Coaches, Educators, and Researchers
June 27, 2018 – TECHNOGYM, the leading producer of design, education and technology-driven wellness and fitness equipment and solutions, and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), the worldwide authority on strength and conditioning research and education are pleased to announce a 2 year partnership extension, which was created to support the continued education of thousands of personal trainers, coaches, educators and researchers.
Established first in June 2016, the partnership between TECHNOGYM and NSCA is intended to deliver exceptional educational content to the fitness world from two industry powerhouses. Per NSCA regulations, all coaches and trainers are required to fulfill a certain number of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per recertification cycle to ensure professional development and application of the most up-to-date fitness and health practices. TECHNOGYM has developed in-depth product workshops that will have been approved by NSCA for CEUs and ensure certified individuals are continually competent.
The renewed partnership will extend outside of North America. TECHNOGYM will work with NSCA’s International Affiliates which currently include NSCA Italy, NSCA Japan, NSCA Spain, NSCA Shanghai, and NSCA Korea, to explore ways in which TECHNOGYM can support the efforts and educational offerings of the NSCA around the world.
“We are pleased to continue to partner with TECHNOGYM and to support them as they build their national and global Master Trainer network” said Michael Massik, NSCA Executive Director. “TECHNOGYM’s work to build the most highly educated training force in the world creates a natural affiliation with the NSCA membership and provides flexible, freelance opportunities for our professionals. We think it’s a great partnership and appreciate TECHNOGYM’s support of the NSCA.”
“TECHNOGYM is proud of its partnership with NSCA and its positive impact in scientific knowledge, training techniques, and equipment competency across the industry” said Nerio Alessandri, Founder and CEO of TECHNOGYM. “By working with the NSCA to expand their continuing educational repertoire with TECHNOGYM’s product workshops, we are continuing to solidify our commitment to provide educational content”
The content produced by this partnership continues to enrich the NSCA’s collection of strength and conditioning resources. These will be utilized to support members with high-level continuing education options, career support services and diverse certifications for personal trainers, fitness specialists and strength coaches.
