Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2012
As many people prepare to celebrate the start of summer this month, the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA) also has something to celebrate: its 20th year of offering fitness training and education throughout the world. With more than 55,000 members across the globe, NESTA is recognized for its fitness education, certification and business programs.
The National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association was created in June 1992 by Dr. John Spencer Ellis, who channeled his passion for fitness, athletics and wellness into the certifying organization.
“Celebrating this 20-year milestone is incredibly rewarding for me, everyone involved in our business, and the thousands and thousands of people who have found a new career, thanks to a NESTA certification,” said Ellis, founder of NESTA. “We are very proud of the quality of our certifications and our longevity in a business that is always changing and evolving.”
In particular, NESTA’s Personal Fitness Trainer online certification program includes a four-year certification and accreditation through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), rather than a typical two-year certification. Other popular NESTA certification programs include Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Coach Certification, Triathlon Coach Certification, Fitness Nutrition Coach Certification, Heart Rate Performance Specialist Certification, Sports Nutrition Certification, Sports Injury Specialist Certification, Functional Training Specialist Certification, Sports Yoga Certification and many more.
All of the online certifications include interactive education, online training videos, downloadable information on demand and more. In addition, the certifications are recognized and accepted by many leading health clubs and organizations in the United States and abroad.
“With their 20-year legacy of success, these NESTA certifications are designed to help people reach their career and health and wellness goals with a great combination of practical education and business skills,” added Ellis.
