Personal trainers at Dynamic Fitness Management (DFM) in St. Louis, Missouri are now hitting the “books” at Missouri Baptist University, thanks to a new partnership and a new MBU Health and Sport Sciences offering that’s preparing DFM trainers for the prestigious NSCA CSCS national certification.
“The National Strength and Conditioning Association’s (NSCA) Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification is one of the most respected certifications in the strength and conditioning field. We are impressed Missouri Baptist University has specifically designed a course for such a reputable certification body in our industry and we are very excited to partner with MBU,” said JC Sibala, Marketing Director at Dynamic Fitness Management. “MBU is truly helping DFM and the industry as a whole, raise the standards.”
One of only eighteen schools in the United States nationally accredited by the Commission of Accreditation for Exercise Science (CoAES), Missouri Baptist University’s new Principles of Human Performance course will prepare the DFM trainers for the rigorous CSCS exam, which is considered to be the gold standard of certification in the field of strength and conditioning. Course highlights include labs, a convenient sixteen-week online format, a CSCS practice examination, video analysis and earned graduate/undergraduate credit.
“We are thrilled to partner with an outstanding organization like Dynamic Fitness Management as it is a strong MBU initiative to build bridges between higher education and the practitioner and to make hands-on experiences available to our students,” said Dr. Paul Gregory Comfort, Missouri Baptist University Division Chair, Health and Sport Sciences. “CSCS credentials are the ultimate certification for strength and conditioning professionals. The majority of professionals working for national sports organizations and for major college and university athletic departments are required to have these credentials.”
