Sandip and Rohan from Team SRV Athletics are on their way to become ACSM Certified Personal Trainers! The four month, in-depth and thorough training will make them qualified to plan and implement exercise programs for healthy individuals or those who have medical clearance to exercise. The CPT facilitates motivation and adherence as well as develops and administers programs designed to enhance muscular strength, endurance, flexibility, cardiorespiratory fitness, body composition, and/or any of the motor skills related components of physical fitness.
The American College of Sports Medicine was founded in 1954 by a small group of physical educators and physicians who recognised that health problems were associated with certain lifestyle choices, especially smoking and lack of exercise. Since then, ACSM members from all professional backgrounds have applied their knowledge, training and dedication in sports medicine and exercise science to promote healthier lifestyles for people around the globe.
ACSM is the largest sports medicine and exercise science organisation in the world. With more than 50,000 members and certified professionals worldwide, it is dedicated to advancing and integrating scientific research to provide educational and practical applications of exercise science and sports medicine.
