About the Personal Fitness Management Specialist (PFMS) International Business Development Position
A Personal Fitness Management Specialist is a fitness advisor and wellness consultant, proficient in weight and lifestyle management, cardiovascular and resistance exercise program development, stretching techniques/application and nutritional science. A Personal Fitness Management Specialist possesses expertise equivalent to that of a five year, full-time, certified master fitness trainer. The primary difference between the profession of personal training and the profession of Personal Fitness Management Specialist is the requirement of in person, hands on exercise equipment instruction. While certified personal trainers typically administer services within a fitness equipment environment, a Personal Fitness Management Specialist provides online consultation because of the absence of exercise instruction services. Individuals seeking assistance from the NHE Personal Fitness Management Specialist Program are educated in exercise equipment setup, operation and application. Hands on exercise equipment instruction is not a requirement.
An NHE Personal Fitness Management Specialist provides fitness, wellness and dietary solutions to NHE affiliate members (dependent of expertise). NHE affiliate members are individuals involved directly/indirectly with an NHE Personal Trainer Certification Program, an NHE Personal Fitness Management Program, an NHE Fitness Nutrition Development Program or other NHE service program both in the U.S. and abroad. This position is a WFH position. Fitness and/or dietary solutions are provided online. Personal Fitness Management Specialists develop fitness, dietary and wellness solutions by analyzing profile data submitted by participating affiliate members via an NHE Fitness Management Profile Form (FMPF). Once the Personal Fitness Management Specialist has analyzed the FMPF, he/she composes a detailed solution via an online NHE FMS Response Form. The online NHE FMS Response Form is designed to articulate specific, itemized solutions for client (affiliate member) review, consideration and implementation.
There are three types of Fitness Management Profile Forms (FMPF). FMPFs are assigned in accordance to the specific professional/academic expertise of the PFMS and market demand. Market demand does not affect workload, only FMPF type.

NHE- FMPF-N: Must be completed within 48 hours of submittal.
NHE- FMPF-C: Must be completed within seven business days of submittal.
