The cycling certification is completely bogus. A 75 question multiple choice test, no id verification, no classes, no time limit, you can google while taking it. It took me 15 minutes to get 85% on the test, then you pay $99 for a piece of paper. I think online certification can be effective to guarantee knowledge, but this is not how to do it.

Excellent organization with an incredible curriculum!! I am a certified martial arts strength and conditioning coach under ASFA and I can tell you the education is VERY comprehensive, very in depth, and I learned ALOT of new things!! In fact even after getting certified 6 months ago I am STILL using the ASFA study materials for reference!! Very good organization for continuing education, to specialize into a niche market, and to learn more advanced exercise science and program design principles beyond a basic personal training text!!

Good organization with good certification programs. Their programs are a good complementary credential to other certifications.

I got my certification from ASFA some years back as it was expensive paying for certification from other bodies. It okay as long as you are in the fitness industry and you stay up to date by reading books. If other bodies want us to join them, they should bring down their fee. Well done ASFA

I am a fitness professional certified in personal training, sport specific trainer, and sports nutrition. I've been certified with ASFA since 2010, and had many doors open up to me. I have all of the human kinetics books that have been recommended by ASFA, it keeps me studying and staying up to date with the fitness industry, so I can be effective as a fitness professional. Thanks ASFA for your part in my success!!

Review:

Looking around for different certificaitons and CEUs, I ran into ASFA. I checked on their site references and to see what they said. Human Kinetics, Bodybuilding.com and a couple others I contacted said they endorse ASFA. Also, they are partners with an insurance company for their members to get CPT insurance.

All my Exercise Science books were written by Human Kinetics and I always order from BodyBuilding.com. They seem on the same page, so that's cool.

Works for me! I'm a fitness manager and I use it for all my trainers to keep current and establish more credibility with our client base. We've used them for years with no problem.

I did my Master Trainer and Indoor Cycling certifications with ASFA. It helped me get more clients and a raise -- can't complain.

I've used ASFA for years. All the Group Ex. and bootcamp instructors use them to keep an active cert. for classes and most of the trainers use them for CECs and/or advanced certs. They work great! Awesome and convenient! Thanks!

I picked up 2 certs that counted for my cont. ed. for my PT. It kept my PT active and I got a raise for the additional education. You guys rock!

I've been very pleased with ASFA. My studio has used them at least 3 - 4 years with no problems. They've been a good resource for me.

I've tapped into several new niche markets by earning certifications from ASFA that I wouldn't otherwise have had access to. My business is doing great thanks to ASFA's commitment to providing cutting-edge continuing education options for people like me who don't have much time to research every trend out there.

I've had excellent experiences with ASFA. It has minimized the time I have to spend away from training in order to pursue my continuing education goals, and the resources ASFA recommends are fantastic!

I've been an ASFA member for years. They've gotten me discounts on supplements and insurance. Almost all the trainers in my gym have their cert. in addition to others. They work great for marketing and my primary accepts their tests as CECs. I have no complaints.

I've been very impressed by ASFA. I've never had a problem using their tests for CEUs or screening. Their customer support usually gets back to you within a day and they have offered sponsorships the last couple years for members in good standing.

Also, as a Master Trainer, you can publish blogs on their site. They've helped my business a lot.

I strongly disagree with the person above. ASFA's site clearly states that these certificates "are for those already qualified and working in the fitness industry" and are for "continuing education and niche marketing solely". I've been using ASFA certificates for years to keep CECs for my primary cert. active and to pre-screen trainer applicants.

These tests are ideal to keep up my CECs. People who complain like the person above clearly did not read the homepage or any of the certificate pages. My company is on their partner page - and they are endorsed and partnered with many others including HPSO, Bodybuilding.com and Human Kinetics.

ASFA makes getting my CECs and pre-screening my employees and contractors fast and simple. To me, that's easily worth a hundred bucks.

The Childhood Obesity Specialist Certification is NOT real! There was nothing more than a 75 multiple choice question quiz, with no prior instruction or materials! In 5 minutes and $125 later, I could have received this 'certification'. Shame on you for introducing such a scam into our industry! I hope all PTs realize that easy isn't better when we are dealing with such a complex issue as obesity and especially with children! I also hope no gets hurt! SHAME ON YOU ASFA!!!!!
