Welcome to the
Resistance Training Specialist® Programs

Since 1997, the original advanced exercise education
curriculum for the THINKING PROFESSIONAL!

Light Years Beyond Online & Weekend Certifications

RTS® is not a club or team to join.
RTS is not for followers of gurus.
RTS is not a weekend course.
RTS does not empower you to speak for it online
or confront people on social media.

RTS is first and foremost an educational organization.

RTS is for professionals who are committed to and focused on
evolving their understanding of exercise in order to
customize their design, execution, and delivery of exercise
to meet the ever-changing needs and tolerances
of each individual client/patient.

It is not for those who just want another certification to adorn the wall!

RTS is an incrementally progressive curriculum for the exercise professional
that is divided into three levels
wherein nothing can be memorized!

Foundational knowledge is vital!
And live practical/hands-on classes are the only way
to evolve professional skills!

Professionals don't paint by number!

Thinking, problem solving, and decision making are the key!

If you ONLY want a piece of paper,
there are dozens of less demanding options!

If you want to evolve toward the true professional your clients deserve...
then welcome to the RTS® body of students.
