What is biomechanics? Why is this knowledge vital for all fitness professionals?
Biomechanics evaluates the motion and the actions of forces on that organism.
You will learn biomechanics as a combination of several different areas of study. This includes anatomy and physiology, kinematics (the study of motion without regard to its causes), kinesiology (the study of human movement) and kinetics (the study of forces acting on a system). Having this additional knowledge will give you a distinctive advantage over trainers and coaches who lack these special skills. Your clients will benefit by receiving better training, improved performance, and a reduction in injuries.
This course is comprehensive, and yet presented in a very easy-to-follow format. Human biomechanics and the mechanical analysis of human performance come down to how the joints and muscles interact during motion, and how the stress upon the joints hinders or helps movement during athletics.
1. Your interactive digital online manual to study at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home. Your manual contains 10 chapters covering an overview of the following sports sciences: Biomechanics, joint function, human kinetics, mechanical analysis, anatomy, kinetic chains & kinesiology.
2. Several comprehensive training videos with the extensive biomechanics study material in animated video format.
3. The biomechanics exam is taken online when you are ready. This professional training course is the fastest way for you to become a high-level fitness professional, start today!
This course is available at a significantly discounted rate as part of the Master Personal Trainer Certification Bundle.

"I am very satisfied with the course materials presented by NESTA for the personal training certification. I decided to pursue the certification for my own personal use and not necessarily as a working trainer. I love to compete in physique contests and am often asked questions about my lifestyle. I wanted to provide sound advice and learn further details pertaining to nutrition and exercise science for my own benefit. Thank you Nesta!"
"My name is Yvette, I re-certified my PFT Certification and am so extremely honored to continue being part of NESTA team! The staff (Suzan) has been AMAZING in assisting me with questions & or concerns. I will continue to proudly represent my NESTA education and values as a Personal Fitness Trainer & Coach. In good health,"
"Excellent program with up-to-date science. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an excellent fitness certification accepted everywhere."
