Personal Massage Therapy
Massage & Personal Trainer Certification (NASM) Course
Our 800-hour Massage Therapy and Personal Training Program contains both classroom teaching and supervised, hands on gym/massage time. It was developed to accommodate the growing need for qualified health and wellness professionals. Together, this gives the student one of the most comprehensive courses to date. This program is also suitable for those who are adding skills to their current profession as health care workers in nursing, massage or other health-related fields.
Upon completion of this program, graduates will have received extensive knowledge in the art and science of human movement, nutrition, exercise and bodywork. You will also have the ability to perform massage for wellness and sports, the testing skills to assess a client’s state of fitness, and the knowledge and practical experience to recommend and implement a safe fitness, nutritional, weight management and wellness program in a variety of settings.
All graduates who successfully complete the program will receive an Institute for Therapeutic Massage Therapy and Personal Training Certificate, be prepared to take the national certification examination given by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and The National Certification Exam for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCETMB). They will also qualify for New Jersey State Licensure as a massage therapist.
Financial aid available for those who qualify.
If you’re looking to become certified for personal training only, the course can also be taken as a stand alone option without the licensed massage therapist program. To learn more and find out what the best options are for you, speak to a knowledgeable ITM representative by calling us or filing out the form on this page to get more information.
