Hey friend, Mike Demora, NCEP, National College of Exercise Professionals. And I'm here to talk to you a little bit about becoming a personal trainer, or if you already are a personal trainer, how about staying a personal trainer, keeping up with what they call CEC's or continuing education credits. What I wanted to do is talk to you a little bit about the whole training profession and how it works and how you get to become a successful personal trainer. So when we break it down, the first thing that almost everyone needs to start with is to quote unquote, get certified. Now you have so many options on how to get certified. You know, there's probably the most popular, most common one is the NASM, the National Academy of Sports Medicine. They charge between 800 and $1,500 to be certified. Well, here's, what's really interesting with that. Let's say you go for the deluxe package, $1,500 to become a trainer.
I'm here to give you some really challenging news. Do you realize that the national average, if you become a personal trainer, you won't even still be a personal trainer at the end of one year. What that means is that you won't actually be in the profession of personal training one year from now. That sounds horrible. Now here's some of the good news. The good news is, is that as personal trainers are growing between 10 and 15%, depending on who you read, each and every year, well, that's a lot of people becoming certified, right? And if there's a 10 to 15% jump every year, that's monstrous, right? That is monstrous. It's so many more people getting into the field and at the rate where one out of every two, if not 1.1 out of every two people that become a trainer, won't be a trainer, even in a year.
It's crazy numbers. So, so who does that benefit will benefits what the people giving out the certification. It doesn't benefit you. So let's say you want to be a personal trainer and you spend $1,500. You put it on your credit card. Now you pay it off over X number of months. But what say you don't want to be a trainer anymore, or let's say you don't even know how to become successful. Do you realize that you're still paying for that? It's sort of like the college education you pay, you know, 20, 30, 40,000, a thousand dollars. You're in debt at the end of end of going to school and you don't really even have a job to pay for it. So here's what we're going to do. We wanted to change the entire industry of personal training, and we're going to open up all of our courses.
That is all! Nutrition, personal trainer, advanced personal trainer, how to become a trainer online, all of our courses for one set fee, $17 per month, that's right. $17 per month. So let's say you're you want to be a trainer for a month, $17. Let's say for the second month, you want to be a trainer, 17 more dollars, but let's say the third month, you know, it's not working for you. You're not getting enough clients. You're not doing this. You don't want to train anymore. Stop paying. There's no contract stop at any time. $17 a month will keep you current and certified. And all the other courses are actually in there as well. So you want to get certified in all the different courses. That's up to you. You want to just keep, keep current, take a couple CEC's here and there. Continuing education credits to stay current $17 a month.
That's what we're going to do for you. We're trying to take out all, all of the excuses. Here's what else we're going to throw on. If you decide that you want to become a certified personal trainer, we're going to guarantee that's right. We are going to guarantee that after you're certified, you are going to get an interview, an interview with a major club. Now we work with most major clubs across the entire United States. And we are going to guarantee you that you get an interview. Now, look, we can't guarantee you they get a job. I know some organizations say, they guarantee you get a job, but if you read the fine print, what it means is if you don't get a job, they give you a hundred dollars back. I'm sorry. It's not really a guarantee. Our guarantee is that you are going to get an interview, but look, you know, there's an old saying that we can't fix stupid, right?
I can't, I can't control if you go into an interview with, you know, with a tank top and you know, start showing your guns saying, Hey, you need to hire me, right? I can't control that, but I can control you getting a job with an individual. That's looking for a trainer and we will guarantee! Guarantee that you get that interview. That's what we're going to do for you at $17 an hour. Now, what we're also going to do to you is every Wednesday, every Wednesday you can call in with whatever questions you have. And me personally, I will be on the phone to take your calls. I will be on a zoom call meeting so I can explain things, work through it, do whatever that you want to do for as long as you'd like for as long as you are a member paying your $17 a month, you can speak to me every single week.
I challenge any other certification agency for their CEO and founder to be on the phone every single week and have access to everyone. That's what we want to do for you. Look, guys, it is really challenging. It's really challenging that we do not have enough good personal trainers in the United States right now, the United States is fatter than it's ever been. It's disease written it. And now of all times with COVID and all this crap going on, people need us. They need us more than ever. And one of the biggest challenges I get from people is, but I can't afford it. There's no reason you can't afford $17 an hour a month. And if for any reason, any reason, you really, honestly, we cannot afford $17 a month. Give us a call and we'll see what we can do for you. Okay? Email [email protected] And we'll work that out for you.
So to recap, here's what we got going on. Whether you are currently a trainer and you need to get CEC's, or whether you are wanting to be a trainer and you need to get certified $17 a month. There's only one upcharge and that upcharge is well, there's actually two. I know I want to be very, very upfront. One upcharge is, if you want to go to a live class, a live weekend course, we have to charge you a hundred dollars for that course. We have to pay the instructor appropriately, and we have to make sure that everybody is taken care of. That's one upcharge the other upcharges is, when you are ready to take your exam, we have to charge you $25. And the reason is that we use an outside testing agency to keep up with all of our accreditations and we use an outside testing agency and we pay them $25 to actually proctor the exam with you.
Those are two costs. We cannot, we cannot get away without having, but without that, for all the courses, all the coursework in all the specialties and everything that we offer $17 an hour, $17 a month, not an hour, $17 a month. And you will get access to me on a zoom call once a week, every Wednesday. How does that sound? Well, I hope you like it, and I hope you share it with your friends. I hope you share it with everyone else. Because once again, we are setting the trends in the fitness industry. Everyone else follows us. Let me give you an example. You know, we have been teaching as our foundation, our seven primary movements, push, pull, bend, twist, squat, lunge, and gait. We've been teaching that since day one, since 25 years that we've been in business. Now we've gotten a lot of slack for it.
Oh, well, how come you don't teach? What muscle does? What, what muscle? It's all about the muscles. It's all about back and bi day to day. It's all about chest and shoulders day today, we have said since day one, that that's bullshit. That that doesn't make any sense. There's no functionality into it. Guess what our friends at NASM did this weekend, this weekend, we were given an email from NASM to say that they are changing the entire foundation, the entire foundation of their certification. Why? So that they can add in those movements, they are now going to teach fundamental movements, just like we do. I just had to share that with you because it's, it's been on my heart for a little while now. And you know, since this weekend. I kind of giggle a little bit. I kind of giggled because once again, we had had so much ridicule because we are the only ones in the industry that we taught that there are seven primary movements and these movements must be taught as the baseline for all exercise.
Right? And we were told that's crazy. No one else does that. Why would you do that? Blah, blah, blah. And now the biggest, the biggest personal training certification company in the world, the NASM has now followed suit with us. Yeah. I smile a little bit when I hear that, but guess what they haven't filed suit with. They haven't filed that $17 a month. So once again, we want to offer you $17 a month, whether you are a current trainer and need continuing education credits, or whether you are someone who wants to become a trainer for $17 a month, anyone that you know can become a personal trainer. Look, I know I'm crazy, $17 a month, but everyone is telling me the number one reason that they can't become a trainer is they just can't afford it. That they're already in debt, that they don't have a job.
Things are tough right now. They don't know if they're ever going to get clients at $17 a month. I'm taking out all those excuses. We need to help people. I'm going to mentor you every single week that you want to. I'm going to get on a zoom call and mentor anyone and everyone that wants for no added fees. I have mentored some of the most amazing personal trainers in the world. Some huge, huge, big names. People that have gone through the course with me, one-on-one people that have literally changed the personal training world. Not even going to drop names. I'm just going to tell you, I'm mentoring you for free. Well, not free, $17 a month. Anyone that wants to, I can't sleep at night. There aren't enough good trainers in the United States right now you can be that difference. You can change the world.
One person at a time, just like my goal is to change the world. One trainer at a time, you can change the world. One client at a time. I know you don't want to believe me. I know you think there's going to be tricks or tips, or there's going to be something that we're hiding. And we are not. It is $17 a month. The only time you ever add more money is if you want to go to a live class, 16 live hours where you go in person, right? We have to charge you a hundred dollars to do that. And once you charge it, once, you can come back as many times as you want no added fees, one-time fee a hundred dollars for a live course. The other addition is, if you're doing all the classes via online to take your exam, we have to charge you $25 because we have to farm it out to a testing center, to stay with our accreditations. And we charge you $25. Those are our only two upcharges, everything else, $17 a month. We're revolutionizing the way we do training. Please take advantage of it. We don't know how long we can do this. My business folks are already yelling at me saying, I'm crazy. I am crazy. I'm crazy to help you. I am crazy in my mind. I need to help as many people as I can. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. And please take advantage. $17 a month. Have a great day. God bless.
