What does namsit mean when taking a gym instructor course

NAMSET/NAMSIT is a logical approach to resistance exercise introduction.

The acronym NAMSET/NAMSIT helps to offer this logical approach to introduce gym machines.

N = Name of the Exercise

A = Area of the body worked

M = Muscles used

S = Silent demonstration

E = Explanation of the exercise; I = Instruct the exercise

T = Teach the exercise

This approach can be used no matter what resistance machine or free weight exercise is being used. The emphasis should always be on good form and technique.
