They conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs and provide guidance regarding nutrition and injury prevention. Recognizing that their area of expertise is separate and distinct, CSCSs consult with and refer athletes to other professionals when appropriate. This certification is the ONLY strength and conditioning certification recognized by the NCAA, MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL.
