This guy gives great, no BS advice. He really shits on NASM, which is warranted I believe. NASM was designed by a physical therapist and focuses a lot on corrective exercises and balance, which is not really necessary for the majority of clients that look for personal trainers. Strength fixes weakness, and PTs aren’t physical therapists. You’re there to coach your client for maximal results. Your clients will be dissatisfied after training with you for three months doing bosu ball balancing and body weight squats and not seeing a difference in their body or weight.

Can you also trust the other trainers there that they know what they’re talking about? Because a lot of trainers don’t, even after years of experience. Educate yourself by watching anatomy videos, learning the functions of every major muscle in every muscle group. Maybe look for an internship at a different gym if possible. If not, the author of that book has a business called Show Up Fitness and they offer online zoom classes or you can do an in-person internship if you live by one of his locations.
