In 1990 the health and fitness craze swept America. More people than ever engaged in programs of exercise, thus the need for Personal Trainers and Instructors of Aerobics was born.
The National Academy for Health & Fitness recognized the necessity for instructors of fitness to be educated in these areas. NAHF was then, and still is, determined to provide and education that is thorough enough to have our members develop effective and safe programs for their client's health today, but to also realize that the client's health in the future as well. Because the fitness professionals will encounter numerous medical limitations and disorders as well as medications the client may be taking, NAHF exclusively developed and trademarked "Exer-Therapy©". Exer-Therapy© teaches the professional what the different medical disorders/medications are and then takes this a step further by teaching how to develop a therapeutic program of exercises for the situation. In many cases, Exer-Therapy© can be used to prevent disorders that may be in the health history of the client, or this form of therapy can be utilized to provide a better quality of life for the client.
