March 10th, 2017 – TECHNOGYM, the leading producer of design and technology-driven wellness and fitness equipment and solutions, and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), the worldwide authority on strength and conditioning research and education are pleased to share an update on the results of their partnership, which was created to support the continued education of thousands of personal trainers, coaches, educators and researchers.
Established in June 2016, the partnership between TECHNOGYM and NSCA marked an industry first, with the two leaders joining forces to create educational content for the fitness industry. The first of the series, launching this month, is the establishment of NSCA CEU Approved TECHNOGYM Product Workshops.
Per NSCA regulations, all coaches and trainers are required to fulfill a certain number of annual Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per recertification cycle to ensure professional development and application of the most up-to-date fitness and health practices. TECHNOGYM has developed in-depth product workshops that will have been approved by NSCA for CEUs. The educational content of these workshops will also be made available to TECHNOGYM customers and master trainers and industry insiders.
“TECHNOGYM is proud to partner with the NSCA to positively impact strength and conditioning as a practice and a profession,” said Nerio Alessandri, President and Founder of TECHNOGYM. “By expanding NSCA’s continuing educational repertoire to include TECHNOGYM product workshops, we are furthering our goal to support our customers and drive the industry through invaluable education, content and solutions.”
The content produced by this partnership continues to further enrich the NSCA’s collection of strength and conditioning resources. These will be utilized within its efforts to support members with high-level continuing education options, career support services and diverse certifications for personal trainers, fitness specialists and strength coaches.
