  • Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist® (CSCS®)

    The CSCS is a certification provided by the NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) that is generally regarded as the "gold standard" of training certificates. CSCS Certification requires a minimum of Bachelor Degree who apply scientific knowledge to train athletes for the primary goal of improving athletic performance. They conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs and provide guidance regarding nutrition and injury prevention.

    The nature of a CSCS’s job is working with sports teams to develop safe and effective strength and endurance training programs. Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists have an extensive knowledge of nutrition, training techniques and injury prevention methods. Compared to Certified Personal Trainers, CSCSs have tougher standards when it comes to certification. CSCS may also work as strength coaches, physical therapists and CPTs.
