Wai Teik was one of the participants of the National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer (NASM CPT) Live Workshop that was conducted by DSI Academy in December 2014. He felt that it is crucial for all personal trainers to be certified to improve their knowledge and professionalism. He wanted to learn more about different training techniques so that he can impart the knowledge to his clients. He found the NASM CPT course to be very well structured and conducted. All the concepts and terminologies were explained clearly and effectively. He was very impressed with the Optimum Performance Training (OPT) model that allows him to cater to different clients with various needs. He encourages more people to take the course as part of a learning process, and not just to obtain another certification. A keen sense of interest will boost the learning process.
