NCCPT is to determine entry-level competence of the Personal Trainer who will provide safe and effective personal training programs to the public
We believe health and fitness is like the three legs of a tripod: exercise, rest and nutrition. When programming exercise for a client, we believe it's important to consider these three factors. It doesn't matter how much exercise we intend to do, or in which stage of training the client is in; if they're exhausted or malnourished, performance and even health, will suffer. Therefore, the type of exercise, the amount of exercise and the acute variables of sets, reps, weights and rest periods are all dynamic, depending on each individual client. We teach trainers to perform a thorough assessment to each of their clients prior to exercising.
