Levels of Certification

RMAX International has a 5-tiered educational platform to provide students with more sophisticated mastery of the Circular Strength Training System.

  • CST Head Coach: Certified CST Head Coaches craft complete periodized training plans for teams, organizations and agencies through education in the Training Hierarchy Pyramid™. Becoming a CST Head Coach requires the demonstration of significant leadership abilities. Head Coaches are the physical and intellectual representatives of RMAX, embodying its mission of community-fostering mentorship and its vision of “leading from the front.” As aids to the RMAX Faculty, they undergo apprenticeship in conducting certification seminars so that they become qualified to add certifying CST GX Instructors to their benefit stream. The most significant quality in becoming a Head Coach is joining the Head Coaching Staff: a professional team actively developing co-venture, co-promotional and collaborative projects with direct support and supervision from the RMAX Faculty.
  • CST Coach: Certified CST Coaches are qualified in our signature client assessment process, Poise Analysis™, and as a result, Component Learning Technique™. The ability to screen, assess, deconstruct and debug movement efficiency sets a high premium of success for our CST Coaches, distinguishing them from the high volume of personal trainers. Coaches join the RMAX Coaching Staff in tapping into an organizational mind-share library of professional and personal development mentorship. CST Coaches sub-certify for free in any of the system’s increasing array of sought-after programs, and receive extensive support in professional workshop development, marketing and networking.
  • CST Personal Training Instructor: Full CST Instructors receive personal trainer certification through an intensive hands-on education in the science of Circular Strength Training®. Instructors focus on how the “Tri-Ring Integration™” of Joint Mobility, 6 Degrees of Freedom, Progressive Resistance, and Compensatory Movement Technique™ acts as an integrative method of program design. CST Instructors are provided with a spectrum of stock programs that allow them to begin sharing CST with their clients immediately, while simultaneously deepening their development on the road toward CST Coach.
  • CST Group Exercise Instructor: CST GX Instructors receive base level certification in specific programs in the RMAX fleet of peak performance classes. Our programs have been implemented in the “Best Gyms in America” and can be found worldwide. You need the cutting-edge to gain the competitive edge, and the Circular Strength Training® System consistently produces the most innovative and effective programs in wellness, fitness and athletic conditioning.
