A message from Nic Bartolotta, Founder and CEO, NRSA
I want to thank you for taking the time to discover how the NRSA (National Resistance Stretching Association) can help you achieve your goals in becoming a successful Resistance Stretching Practitioner in a world full of conflicting views and modalities of training.
We are not your typical professional fitness association, get certified, pay dues, go to con-ed… rinse and repeat… oh yea, and buy stuff from us. No… we’re different… and done on purpose.
I built the NRSA to stand out among the many associations and certifying bodies that exist in the so-called health & fitness industry to build community with very like-minded professionals that understand the importance of relieving muscle tension, fascial tension, preventing injury, and the important role in the use of body work to solve body integrity issues.
Like you I was compelled to seek a higher level of interaction with the integrity of the bodies muscular, fascial and skeletal system (most directly the joints). This brought me from being a Holistic Health Practitioner to enduring the curriculum to become a leading Physical Therapist in mobility, flexibility and strength and creating the innovative Dynamic Contraction Technique (DCT) as well as top products in Myofascial Release and Trigger Point therapy.
Almost everyday bodywork practitioners, chiropractors, massage therapists, athletic trainers, strength coaches, personal trainer and physical therapists from around the world contact us to help them discover how the viability of eccentric contraction loading and active stretching can build a more successful practice and career.
The NRSA is dual functioning association. At our two yearly Symposiums we laser focus our curriculum on two specific platforms… Practical Application and Business Development. Each symposium (held at different times of the year) identify the key components in the new and innovative approaches to the practicum of Resistance Stretching and the Business building elements that will help you reach far beyond your intended goals.
Many of our certified practitioners and association members are personally and professionally fulfilled and earn quite a good living. Many are entrepreneurs, best-selling authors, have there own tv shows, workout videos, podcasts, award winning blogs and one has even one an Emmy.
As Founder and fellow practitioner I encourage you to be part of the next generation of Professional Wellness Practitioners as a Resistance Stretching Practitioner.
Welcome to The NRSA.
Founder and CEO, NRSA
