American Council on Exercise (ACE)

I just received my ACE CPT certification. The materials provided were wonderful and although challenging, were not overwhelming for one coming from a non-fitness background. I learned things that my physical therapist and occupational therapist friends had studied. ACE has a great support network... more

International Wellness Institute (IWI)

Hello, Since we are located in Hungary, we currently offer only Hungarian courses, however as the education partner of NASM and Active IQ (UK) we have the possibility to run PT, PES, CES courses in English too.

The BioMechanics Method (TBMM)

This course was so well designed and presented in such a way that it made learning some crucial ways to help clients who have functional problems or injuries to do misalignments, over use or even the shoes they wear. Justin provides every opportunity for you to learn and practice what you learn by ... more

Health and Fitness Alliance (HFA)

Very bad experience with Health and Fitness Alliance. The owner or manager was a hostile female. When I refused to allow her to bully me, she threatened me and tried to intimate me. I almost paid 800 dollars. Good think I didn't. I highly warn you to keep away from Health and Fitness Alliance

National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)

You have 15 days to decide whether or not you want to continue pursuing the certificate program. I went for the WLS within that time frame changed my mind and told them to go ahead and cancel. I paid $99 for the course. They submit a request for a refund that takes 30 days to be reissued. The compla... more

National Exercise & Sports Trainers Assn. (NESTA)

Another thing that would be great is if NESTA would let us know what our mistakes were. I called and spoke to Susan (she was awesome by the way - very helpful), and she told me that I wouldn't be able to know what my mistakes were to protect exam integrity. I get it, I do, but I want to be the best ... more

National Exercise & Sports Trainers Assn. (NESTA)

I am really happy with NESTA thus far; in the process of doing the Master Trainer program (PFT CERT accomplished!) and I have just completed the GEI, and I have to be honest, the GEI was easier (but it probably also has to do with the fact that I have been teaching GroupX classes for years now), but... more

The Cooper Institute (CI)

Hello, I attended Coopers, back in 2000. The campus is beautiful and the atmosphere is all fitness and wellness. Doctor Cooper has a great understanding for health and healthy living. I plan to further my education, with Coopers as my point of reference as well as base of learning. Julius Rogers.

(ISFTA) International Sports & Fitness Trainers Association (ISFTA)

Just took the functional workshop. Have to say it was a great experience. Will recommend to others in my office.

International Fitness Professionals Association (IFPA)

Just came across this site looking for upcoming fitness conferences. I have been certified by IFPA for a few years now. Would highly recommend them. Was able to get a job right away, and I am very proud to have recently opened my own studio. If your looking at to become a PT, IFPA is a great choice!... more

International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA)

I chose ISSA certification because more emphasis is placed on learning, accredited by DECT, and not just testing. Memorizing for an exam is good, but if a trainer does not have a solid understanding on applying learned knowledge to actual periodized program development based on client needs and goal... more

National Exercise & Sports Trainers Assn. (NESTA)

I've had a great experience with NESTA thus far. I received my group exercise instructor certification last year and this year opted for CPT. I have given myself a break but I will soon complete my HRM specialist cert as well. I had previously tried and failed at NASM for many reasons, but having s... more

The BioMechanics Method (TBMM)

TBMM Level One is truly the best course I've ever taken. It has changed the way I train my clients and so much more. I've already helped a few of my clients get rid of their chronic pain. One of my favorite parts about the course is that it gave me so many tools to expand my business as a CES. If yo... more

(ISFTA) International Sports & Fitness Trainers Association (ISFTA)

As an educational provider myself I have a very scrutinizing eye for courses that I am willing to pay my hard earned money to attend. When I registered for my course I was pleased to see how dedicated the staff was to providing an unparalleled educational experience for its attendees. Everything f... more

(ISFTA) International Sports & Fitness Trainers Association (ISFTA)

Great Company! I got my ISFTA personal trainer certification and I couldn’t be happier. I also got continuing education credits for my physical therapy license. They are they only company recognized nationally by PT, OT, LMT boards. Clearly the most credible organization.

(ISFTA) International Sports & Fitness Trainers Association (ISFTA)

A must for any LMT (or any medical professional for that matter) needing CEUs! I have attended many CEU courses and been certified by many organizations during my 20 plus yrs of being in the health, fitness and wellness fields. I have never had a more pleasurable educational experience then what... more
