I think no matter what you do, the most important is your passion....if you are just trying to get a piece of paper to proof you are qualified then that defeats the whole purpose. Fitour provides comprehensive information, but even if you get it from an accreditate institutions, I believe very soon you will forget the information you learnt. But with passion, and have the clearance of basic knowledge through an assessment, a person will go much further....I think many times we think expensive institutions certification are much better....these institutions are tapping on the consumer's perspective to charge more so that their profit margin is high....

Fitour is great. All their educators like carol An in the videos have masters degrees. +. Top of the line education, follows exercise guideliness of ACSM and AFAA Approves them for CECs. As well as others. Insuance companies accept them with exercise programs. Most certifications that you get in 1 day assumes you know your anatomy. They all recommend you have this. These educators spent years in school. Spent a lot of money on education. And due to economy and everyone wanting fast quick internet career certificates for as cheap as possible.. most fitness certification companies who for years only did on site workshops.. for at least 300.00... had to offer online and cheaper to stay in business. I went to college for my pt certificate . A 2 year program. You want to learn everything i learned in 1 day. Well you dont have enough education under your belt to judge fitour. I have studied under paul chek and much education. I have the education to back that Fitour is good quality. I highly recommend them. IDEA even aporoves. IDEA SHOULD REMOVE THE ABOVE BAD REVIEWS. THEY R WRONG.

I would not recommend Fitour, for these reasons. I feel they are misleading when they say they are accredited, and are not. When you get your certificate, I actually printed mine out at home right after taking the test, there is no accreditation or credentials listed. So who is going to accept this? Answer, no one. A facility you apply to wants to see who is backing your certificate. I personally would rather spend an extra $100 or more (Fitour is an extremely cheap program) to get a certification which has more on it than just Fitour Official certification and my name on it. On Fitours web page they say they are accredited by ACFE, but why isn't this on the certificate I printed out? I personally am unhappy that I didn't pay the money I spent with Fitour and apply it to a more prestigious and accredited certification program. My 2 cents, enroll in a better program.

Well, FITOUR its a legitimate organization, but unfortunately its not yet nationally recognize. but should be!!! because its great, you learn A LOT with FITOUR.
Some Health Club will accept this certification as enough credential to teach in their facility , but probably most Health Club, will not.
But ANYWAY, I recommend FITOUR, because its a great TOOL to help you to become a better instructor.
Anyway get FITOUR but also get AFAA or ACE in addition!

I recently was interviewed for a personal training position and was told that the FITOUR certification was not nationally accredited and that I should go to a 3rd party testing facility to take a Proctor test. Anyone any insight on this?

I have Senior Fitness and Advanced Personal Trainer certs from FiTour. I appreciate them as CEC providers and for being affordably priced. I wish they were more comprehensive in their exams, most especially because there is no practical component, but I realize that not all certifying organizations utilize written AND practical sections. The Senior Fitness cert was actually superior, IMO, to the Adv Pers Trainer cert, with regards to exercise selection, variations & modifications.

I truly recommend FITour! The programs are great, straight forward & precise information, easy to grasp & understand and what I enjoyed the most was taking the exam online & getting my test result fast, you also know which answers you got wrong so you can learn.
I LOVE FITour, it's great for beginners - advance instructors, affordable and challeging!!!!

I've done online certifications with NESTA, but I enjoyed and liked FITour so much better thats why I only recommend FITour!
