To enhance the skill set of quality-seeking personal trainers, the Cooper Fitness Center recently unveiled its Cooper PT Mentorship program. The 40-hour weeklong training program offers classroom education, hands-on practical labs, business development tips and continuing education credits. “The mentorship was developed from years of learning and experimenting with different training methodologies,” states Carla Sottovia, PhD, Cooper PT Mentorship director and 2005 IDEA Personal Trainer of the Year. “We now have a ‘winning system’ that brings together the best the industry has to offer.” For more information on the program, visit
