PASS NASM w/ IN 30-days
COMPLETE REVIEW 2023
w/ Example test
The pass rate for the NASM CPT is 65 percent! That means that 35% fail. Which doesn't mean you're a failure, it means you don't perform great on standardized testing. Well guess what? Personal training is a career where we are working with our hands, not taking tests. The NASM-CPT 7th edition is a terrible test. It measures absolutely NOTHING when it comes to the capacity of a personal trainer. As a trainer, gym owner, and teacher of trainers, I can without a doubt say that passing this test will do very little for your career as a trainer, maybe even hurt it.
If you are outside of the 28-day window to get a refund, you don't care about what I have to say, you just want to pass this exam ASAP. Welcome to Show Up Fitness. We have helped more than 3,200 people pass this fitness certification. The goal is to pass it in as little as time as possible because time is money. DO NOT READ THE 7TH EDITION TEXTBOOK – you're chances of failing INCREASE. There is TOO MUCH information of which most is outdated i.e. text neck, scapular actions, iceberg effect, OPT model & stabilization. By focusing on the MAIN topics, we have helped people pass NASM in as little as 3-DAYS!
Topics to focus on: Chapter 4, 7, 11-13 & 21
Our study guide highlights the main areas that you need to know with charts & tables to memorize. You need to understand completely the OPT MODEL with all of the acute variables within resistance, overactive / underactive muscles, how to assess a client and the stages of change.
We have weekly zoom calls on Tuesday at 4pm pst and Thursday at 5pm pst. Being able to talk to instructors who will be quizzing you to see how competent you are with the main topics that you will be tested on. All of the calls are recorded and placed on demand within the Show Up Fitness APP. You can listen to students crush the quizzes and then compare yourself to see how ready you are. For example, in one of our recent calls I'm quizzing LJ and he knows the answers like nothing. 5-minutes into the call I say, “LJ, you're good to go, go take the stupid exam and pass so you can get back into the daily calls to focus on becoming a qualified SUF-CPT.”
One day later, I receive this DM&
The best tips for studying the NASM-CPT 7th edition:
1. Don't read the textbook.
2. Don't compare other study guides (fitness mentors, trainer academy, Sorta Healthy or the facebook group with Mark who hates show up fitness because we actually help trainers become successful.) They do not have the track record of 3,000+ people passing and suggest for you to read the textbooks – don't do that.
3. Don't take any quizzes on NASM website. We have had people get 50's on their quizzes and pass easily. It's too much of a system overload, FOCUS ON THE SHOW UP GUIDE AND YOU WILL PASS.
Once you pass, reach out to start the process on becoming a successful personal trainer via Show Up Fitness CPT. You get access to LIVE calls and successful personal trainers. Instead of reading a textbook, we focus on anatomy, programming and growing a book of business.
If you FAIL&. Ask yourself this important question& What would paying $200 do? Would you feel like you're a better trainer? The answer is NO, so why? We have helped trainers get hired at Equinox, Crunch, Lifetime Fitness with our SUF-CPT. We're in the process of getting accredited through the NCCA – it takes $16,000 & a 120-page application to be submitted – it takes time! We can help you with your resume and interview skills to get hired anywhere you want to go. It all begins by SHOWING UP!
