You’re Not Going To Believe This

For context, the only connection I have with NASM is that I’ve already passed the NASM CPT exam after taking their premium online guided course. I only began listening to & watching Richey’s podcasts after passing because I felt weak in knowledge in some areas.

You’re not going to believe this, but…I would’ve paid double or more for Dr. Richey to teach me through podcasts like this one. Just throw out the course and let Richey take over.

Why? Because Richey’s attitude & approach to learning makes learning fun. And he’d shrink the amount of study time needed by many hours. His positive attitude doesn’t make learning feel so dreadful (the course & textbook was pretty dreadful & uninspiring to me). He has helpful methods of learning and remembering certain things.

His knowledge is inspirational. I’ve emailed their student questions team about concepts he’s talked about (trying to reconcile perceived conflicts between what he said & the book and whatnot), and Richey has really helped me consolidate important concepts. He seems like a true role model for CPTs & everyone else & I thank him & the podcast team for being my MVP in my fitness career.

Informative and Interesting

I started listening to Rick’s podcast as I was studying for the NASM CPT exam over a year ago. I had no idea, most of the time, what he was talking about because I didn’t understand a lot of the terminology. However, the reason for listening was not to necessarily remember what he was saying but to become familiar with this new language. It certainly helped my studying immensely. Since then I passed the Exam and I continue listening to these podcasts every week but now I actually understand what’s being discussed. I love the humor, humility, and humanity that Rick brings to the table. He reminds me of my own sons and their love for people and their passion for their individual gifts. I appreciate and enjoy every topic and look forward to the next. I rate this podcast as a 5 star Triple A+. Every trainer and trainer should be listening.
