Helping you Decode the World of CPT
As a NASM® certified personal trainer, you will be guiding clients through a fitness journey, which requires you to have a detailed working knowledge of the body, its skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, and nervous systems (and much, much more). This is no walk on the treadmill, my friends. The NASM personal training curriculum is a punishing mental routine … but Brainscape’s panel of health and fitness experts have the perfect tips and tools to help you master the content efficiently (and without spraining your brain).
Brainscape has partnered with a panel of health and wellness experts to help students like you ace the NASM® CPT exam. At the helm of this panel is lead author Cassie Laegen, a certified personal trainer, health coach, and performance enhancement specialist with a Masters of Science in Exercise Science and Health Promotion. Yas queen. The fruits of our collaboration is a comprehensive collection of adaptive, digital NASM® CPT flashcards and this study guide, which have been meticulously reviewed by NASM Master Instructors.
The best app for CPT prep
Brainscape’s collection of 1,100+ flashcards aren’t just definitions of terms (although, we have those too!). The NASM® CPT exam requires critical thinking, which was the premise behind the creation of these cards. By splitting the cards into decks that are centered around the NASM® curriculum, you can study more efficiently and trust that you have all the facts necessary to kickstart your career in health and wellness!
These flashcards have also been updated for the newest edition of the textbook with updated statistics, new research, and over 300 new cards that focus more on the information that NASM expects their trainers to know. This includes topics such as business and how to get a job in the future, improved anatomy and physiology with more information on various systems in the body, and improved decks on the updated OPT model and program design.
How Brainscape helps you learn faster and remember for longer
The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.
Our "secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of NASM CPT content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
