Vic Spatola was essential in my success as a personal trainer and certification through NASM. I entered the CPT career without any sort of exercise science degree and spent countless hours with Vic in an internship setting. He helped bring the NASM textbook to life, showing me how to apply the concepts to real-world client situations and properly utilize corrective exercise within a program. I wouldn't have the confidence I do as a trainer without Vic!
