The National Strength and Conditioning Association

What is the NSCA?

As a worldwide authority on strength and conditioning, they support and disseminate research-based knowledge and its practical application to improve athletic performance and fitness.

Who They Are

The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) is an international nonprofit educational association founded in 1978. Evolving from a membership of 76, the association now serves nearly 30,000 members in 52 countries. Drawing upon its vast network of members, the NSCA develops and presents the most advanced information regarding strength training and conditioning practices, injury prevention, and research findings.

Unlike any other organization, the NSCA brings together a diverse group of professionals from the sport science, athletic, allied health, and fitness industries. These individuals are all in pursuit of achieving a common goal—the utilization of proper strength training and conditioning to improve athletic performance and fitness.

Central to its mission, the NSCA provides a bridge between the scientist in the laboratory and the practitioner in the field. By working to find practical applications for new research findings in the strength and conditioning field, the association fosters the development of strength training and conditioning as a discipline and as a profession.

Headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the NSCA serves as a valuable resource for its members, the fitness industry, general public, and the media. The association provides a wide variety of resources and opportunities designed to strengthen, build, advance, and unify.


More than 500 NSCA members volunteer a total of 5,000 hours each year as member resource volunteers, committee members, state/provincial directors, and Board of Directors members.


The nine-member Board of Directors oversees the growth and development of the entire association. The current Board collectively has more than 100 years of experience in the field and lends this great knowledge to the advancement of the association.
