Despite the intense demand for youth fitness programming, much of today’s health and fitness literature focuses on adult populations.
Developed with the understanding that the youth client has different responses and attitudes toward exercise in comparison to adults, NASM’s Youth Exercise Specialisation (YES) aims to educate health and fitness professionals on how to design safe, effective and fun training programmes for youth clients aged between 6 and 19.
This programme makes educating today’s youth on fitness and nutrition seem like child’s play with the specialised course covering the science behind the programme and precautions for this age group.
The YES arms you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to assist youth clients in attaining their health and fitness goals by applying the Optimum Performance Training™ (OPT™) model.
We recommend that you have at least a Level 3 Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training, NASM- CPT qualification or a high level of working knowledge of the fitness industry.Enquire Now
