The National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA) has just approved the Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association’s (MMACA) online certification program for 4.0 continuing education credits, which also can be applied toward recertification for the NESTA Personal Fitness Trainer program.
Health professionals of all levels have teamed up with best MMA athletes around the world to make an effective and comprehensive online certification program to educate personal trainers, coaches, and martial artists with the physical and professional skills to start and maintain a successful MMA business.
The MMA certification teaches you important combat drills, plyometrics, mental focus, TRX kettlebells, conditioning, sports nutrition, and flexibility. The program to become a certified mixed martial arts conditioning coach includes online lectures, video demonstrations, a digital textbook, and audio lessons. The program is 100 percent online and there is no time limit, so the training fits into your schedule, no matter how busy you are.
Mixed martial arts has exploded in popularity in recent years as a fun and effective way to get into shape, build confidence and gain strength. “Mixed martial arts continues to be adopted into a variety of sports as well as popular culture and national TV, so it only makes sense that this special online certification now qualifies for continuing education credits,” said John Spencer Ellis, founder of the Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association.
In addition to the NESTA continuing education credits, the Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association’s certification credits can also be applied to certifications with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
