NASM OnPoint Academy was created by "Celebrity Body Transformation Expert" Yano Anaya who’s professional teaching journey started in 2011. He was approached by the Owner of Atlanta School Of Massage in regards to a position as her (Champion) Personal Trainer Program Director. This was an idea of hers for a couple of years but just never found the “Right Fit” to spearhead her project. The Owner loved to exercise because she had a trainer (By the Name Abby Johnson) that came to her house 3 days a week for almost 10 years. Abby helped her lose over 80 lbs in the first few years injury-free. The owner wanted to add a Personal Trainer Program to her school that was built on the vision of public safety.
In 2 short months, Yano was hired as the Education Director for The Atlanta Personal Trainer Program and chose the National Academy of Sports Medicine to be the foundational education for the future students.
Yano spent the next 6 months writing lesson plans, designing presentations, created the very first internship program in the State of Georgia, and then hired a staff for a 600-hour vocational Personal Trainer Program.
For the next 6 years, Yano successfully graduated 99% of the students that joined the program. He then wanted to pursue his passion to own his own Body Sculpting Studio and Integrate a NASM Certification Program. Truth be told that running the Studio was taking all of his time (He can’t wait to share his experience with you). So 3 years in he made a decision. And that was to Change his path ( more on this during class) and create a streamlined NASM Exam Prep Course that wasn’t just 2 weeks, or 6 months. 8-Weeks was the sweet spot to give the participant time to study at home and to be mentored in-person to reinforce you’re at home learning and learn the essentials to be a great trainer.
