Talk is really cheap. Do not believe anything the admissions employees say. You ask them a question to only find out the information they give you is misleading. All they want is your money. This school trains you on "how to look like a personal trainer" because the school only offers a "diploma" which won't get you far because you still need to get your certification after the program is complete but you won't know that until you attend the first class, and by then it is too late. The school will want 25% of the tuition for only attending a few hours of class which is $1290.00. That is one exspensive workout. With that being said, they do not even help you get certified. You have to pay more money and take an online exam. You matters well just take out the "middle man," grab study material, and take the online exam. This will save you $5000.00 and lots of frustration. DO NOT ATTEND AAPT!!!!

After students graduate AAPT they are prepared to train clients. Personal training certifications are often required by the employer they chose to work for...t... more less
