MMA Conditioning Association Certification Approved for Personal Training NESTA Credits

By Alan Gray

Mixed martial arts has become very popular, so much so that it has been integrated into some personal training and physical fitness programs.

This growth has been recognized by the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA), which recently approved the Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association's (MMACA) online certification program for 4.0 continuing education credits.

The Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association (MMACA), is the MMA certification division of the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA), and bridges the gap between sports conditioning science, MMA training methods and direct application from the ring, octagon, mat or cage.

The association's credits also satisfy the recertification requirements for the NESTA Personal Fitness Trainer program.

More than just an athletic program, the online Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association certification was designed for personal trainers, coaches, martial artists and MMA participants who wish to acquire both athletic and business skills required for successful mixed martial arts coaching.

On the athletic side, the program combines combat drills, plyometrics, mental training, TRX, use of kettlebells, aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, sports nutrition, and flexibility.

"Mixed martial arts continues to be adopted into a variety of sports as well as popular culture and national TV, so it only makes sense that this special online certification now qualifies for continuing education credits. We are pleased with this recognition of the strength and quality of our certification program." - John Spencer Ellis, Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association founder

The self-paced certified mixed martial arts conditioning coach program is provided entirely online, through a series of lectures, video demonstrations, a digital manual, audio lessons and more.

The Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association's certification earns NESTA continuing education credits, National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) credits, the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) credits and National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) credits.
