Active in over 80 countries worldwide, The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), a top-notch world provider of fitness certifications, has made a valuable collaboration with Integrated Sports Systems. NASM is delegating the credibility of issuing their exclusive Certified Personal Trainer course to NASM Egypt, in addition to diverse educational programs, opening a window of opportunity for career and character upgrades for all fitness professionals across Egypt. Not only this, but the courses do come in Arabic-translated versions, augmenting its breakthrough into the fitness community.
In An Outbreak of Fitness
No wonder there was an outbreak of the fitness and bodybuilding culture that took the nation by storm over the last decade. Such a collaboration would diversify the training opportunities, reinforcing the vitality of fitness education among the blazing community. The potential outcome would immensely resonate as Egypt is the most populated country in Africa and the Middle East, brimming not only with Egyptians but residents of different nationalities.
Expanding Sports Wellness
“We are thrilled to expand the reach of our evidence-based and internationally-recognized programs to this region in the Middle East and North Africa,” said Laurie McCartney, President of NASM and Ascend Learning’s Global Fitness and Wellness Group. “This collaboration adds to our growing network in the region that includes Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates. It also enables us to support even more fitness professionals in their career growth with the tools, knowledge, and framework for success.”
A launch to Upgrade the Fitness Industry
“We are very excited to bring NASM – the most reputable certification in the fitness industry – to the region. This launch will upgrade our fitness professionals and educate the whole fitness industry in Egypt,” said Ahmed Senna, CEO of NASM Egypt. More details about NASM’s Certified Personal Trainer programs can be found at NASM.org and internationally through the NASM Premier Global website.
