The NSCA Certification Commission has developed an alliance with 24 Hour Fitness Worldwide to provide a discount on the NSCA-Certified Personal Trainer® (NSCA-CPT® ) exam to 24 Hour Fitness personal trainers. This will allow all 24 Hour Fitness personal trainers to register for the NSCA-CPT certification exam at a discounted rate and receive discounts on exam preparation materials.
The agreement, commenced in December 2006, allows 24 Hour Fitness to host exams for its personal trainers, which gives 24 Hour Fitness personal trainers the convenience of a local exam site. Because the NSCA-CPT credential is the most respected and preferred certification in the fitness industry, the NSCA Certification Commission and 24 Hour Fitness see this alliance as an opportunity for 24 Hour Fitness to demonstrate their personal trainers' expertise.
The NSCA-CPT credential is for personal trainers who work with both active and sedentary clients in one-on-one situations. NSCA-CPT credential holders work in a variety of settings including health and fitness clubs, schools and clients' homes. Today, more than 9,600 fitness professionals hold the NSCA-CPT credential. The NSCA-CPT was the first personal training certification to earn accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) in 1996.
24 Hour Fitness Worldwide began as a one-club operation in 1983. Today, more than 375 clubs in 16 states and around the world are privately owned and operated. 24 Hour Fitness multi-sport fitness centers offer affordable access to people of all abilities and fitness levels 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The alliance between the NSCA Certification Commission and 24 Hour Fitness enhances 24 Hour Fitness' commitment to its employees and members.
