    Your Workout PERFECTED ebook

    • Continuing education exam

    Every workout is intended to do one thing: maximize results. Whether that result is fitness, function and performance, fat loss, or physique improvements, you want your efforts to pay off. What if you had the opportunity to have the NSCA Personal Trainer of the Year show you how to make every workout better? Now you do have access to that expertise with Your Workout PERFECTED.

    Nick Tumminello, author of Strength Training for Fat Loss and Building Muscle and Performance, knows that a “one size fits all” approach can’t work for yourself or your clients. That go-to program you love may be more harmful than beneficial. Or maybe, with some slight alterations, it’s exactly what your client needs. That’s why he developed Your Workout PERFECTED. It’s a unique and cooperative approach—one that works to improve, not replace, your routine.

    Inside, there are 243 exercises and 71 programs, including beginner workouts for those who are just starting and even alternative home or hotel gym workouts and bodyweight workouts. Plus, you’ll learn the following:

    • The mistakes you may be making

    • Minor changes to techniques that can produce big results

    • Why certain exercises are preferable over others

    • Whether men and women should be trained differently

    • Exercises to avoid

    • Proven principles to follow

    • Combinations and sequences to maximize results

    Upon completing the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.

    Learning Objectives

    After reading the book and completing the exam, you will be able to do the following:

    • Explain why a client’s training objectives (fitness, function and performance, fat loss, or physique improvement) determine what training program to use.
