I entered the fitness industry holding two highly regarded certifications. However it was not until I took the leap and got certified by PTA Global that my training business really took off. PTAG is a great group of people who will help transform you into the trainer you aspire to be. I'm taking the Advanced Course now and its is wonderful, it has really opened my mind up to a new way of thinking of movement. They have helped me to find my pathway. I look forward to joining PTAG for one of their mentorships in the future. The material in PTAG is career changing! Throughout the past couple of years I have kept learning amassing 6 certifications. Throughout all this learning I feel that PTAG has been the most transformative! I highly recommend their educational system, it is an investment that you will not regret!

PTA Global was terrible. I just finished the course, and it was awful. The online lectures are extremely hard to follow. They give you way more information and test your knowledge on corporations and personal injury law (VERY outside the scope of a personal trainer's expertise). The program itself was extremely overwhelming, and poorly organized. They don't even go over how to train individuals in different ways, instead relying on their "Program Design Tool" which spits out work-out plans for your clients that are impossible to understand. This program will probably be amazing in a few years when they work out their kinks, and revise their numerous typos (including wrong test questions).
Also, the program misstates and distorts scientific studies and reports. NOT worth the price.

OK look, new to the industry knowing very little about personal training, I had the opportunity of a lifetime, the PTA Global Cert, offered at AHCP. I was so exited when I started the cert for many reasons; fun, science, tool to make me a great trainer, and most importantly able to communicate with my clients, and thank God I found what I was looking for with PTAG. It was such a life and career changing experience that I had to take the Advance course. Oh yeah and just for the record in the next few months I will be attending the Mentor-ships offered also by PTAG...
THANKS PTAG!!! for life and career changing experience....

Going through the PTAG bridging course was the first step to significantly enhancing my abilities as a fitness professional. Applying communication and behaviour techniques is imperative to understanding your client(s). Learning myofascial lines and 3DC has blown the doors off of my functional exercise vault which I can confidently say is now infinite, and completely malleable to what my client(s) want and need. A fresh look at energy systems has helped my training become more efficient, and more importantly effective. And how about blending it all into truly enjoyable, dare I say FUN, format for both learning and applying on the floor.
The best in the world have one-upped themselves. Definitely the most formative step in my career.
