…I have just completed the IFPA Personal Fitness Trainer and IFPA Sports Nutrition Certifications. I just wanted to write to you, for whatever it is worth, and tell you I thoroughly enjoyed these two courses. Also, the IFPA Staff was very friendly and personable when I called with questions. 

I have “been in-the-gym” for over 12 years and finally decided to become a personal trainer. Personal Trainer and Sports Nutrition are two areas I am fascinated with and can not seem to get enough literature to quench my thirst for knowledge. I was already a believer in some of your theories and principles and found it refreshing to hear your lecture on them. I love to talk to people about this and now that I’m “officially IFPA certified” they listen! I am currently training with Darby Hait, “Ms. Fitness World, 1997” we are learning a great deal from each other. Her theories and principles parallel yours – thus her great results! I also want to thank you very much for providing us working wives and mothers, who sometimes financially and otherwise can not travel to take these courses and tests, the opportunity to take a course and test like this, through Independent Study on our own time, well, for me, it has changed my life…Thank you for providing the platform to begin a career!
