Build A Recession-Proof Training Business
By Becoming
A Certified Personal Trainer
...
(Probably the ONLY sure way to thrive EVEN in hard times like these)
Why becoming certified has never been more important
than it is TODAY? 
Why becoming certified
has never been
more important than
it is TODAY? 
The economy is collapsing, people are hiding in quarantine, and personal trainers are terrified of what the future will bring for them.

So why in the world would you even think about becoming a certified personal trainer during these challenging times?

You want the harsh truth? 

Because nothing else pays off. 

I mean, sure...

You could earn a couple hundred dollars under the IRS's radar by being dependent on four or five flaky clients, which are paying you way less than you deserve...

But is that REALLY what you want? 

Since you stumbled upon this page, I'll make an educated guess that you want something more.

You'd much rather have a profitable personal training business, full of reliable, well-paying clients that allow you to support you and your family in living the lifestyle you want.

Lucky for you, this website shows you everything you need to make this dream your reality.

Okay - you are probably wondering...
With all the different certifications on the market... WHY trust us?
Fair question.

Let me give you the facts, then you can decide for yourself whether you want to trust us or not...

And no...
I'm not telling you all this to brag.

The best part?
We make the process of becoming a certified fitness professional, straightforward, and painless.

What exactly is the IFPA Personal Trainer Certification Course?
(and is it really the shortcut to your success)
What exactly is the
IFPA Personal Trainer Certification Course?
(and is it really the shortcut
to your success)
Let me be blunt..

The IFPA Personal Trainer Certification Course is the most comprehensive personal training course on the market. It is designed for those who'd like to become excellent (and respected) personal trainers.

So...

If your goal is to be an average personal trainer, constantly panicking about having enough clients, never be 100 % sure you can pay the bills or stop working to take a vacation...

Then it's probably better you close this page right now and continue looking for easier, less extensive, and cheaper programs.

But on the other hand...

Suppose you want to build a profitable business that will grant you endless freedom, being your own boss and never having to worry about money again. In that case, the IFPA Certification Course might as well be what you're looking for.
What can you expect in the IFPA program?
More than you think!

Through an interesting, interactive, and highly professional course, you will gain the knowledge and skills that every personal trainer needs.

You will learn how to successfully train clients who have no significant health restrictions and monitor clients in the areas of fitness, exercise, and health.

In other words...

The ONE missing piece of the personal training success puzzle...
The ONE missing piece
of the personal training success puzzle...
There's one factor crucial for success in this line of work.

One factor that the vast majority of certifications either completely avoid or even intentionally leave out.

And it's this one factor that will determine whether or not you will be able to turn personal training into a profitable business allowing you to live the life of your dreams.

Of course - I am talking about business skills.

But not just any business skills...

You need a toolbox of business skills explicitly tailored to starting & running a successful PT business, whether you do it on your own or under the umbrella of your employer.

And that's EXACTLY the knowledge the IFPA Certification Course delivers.

We deep dive into learning all the crucial aspects of self-promotion (that gets people to know you), smart marketing (that attracts potential clients), and no-pressure sales tactics (so you can sign them and get paid).

knowledge they have ever learned!

Remember - There are 2 TYPES
of personal trainers today...
Remember - There are
2 TYPES of personal trainers today...
The ones that the COVID-19 crisis will break - mentally and financially...

And the ones that will not only survive, but THRIVE during these times.

Join the IFPA certification course and make sure that you will be among the winners when all this is over. 

I've done everything I could, now it's your turn...

Frequently asked questions and answers...
1... I have won dozens of titles in nodybuilding including Mr. Universe, why do I need the certificate?
Congratulations on your achievements and dedication to excellence. Once you become a personal trainer, your experience will definitely give you an edge over other personal trainers. 

However, club owners will not hire you and insurance companies will not insure you if you are not a certified personal trainer. Despite a wealth of practical experience, you will need a certification to prove you understand the science behind training to ensure you will DO NO HARM to the public you will be charged with training. Training a 60-year old with osteoarthritis has nothing to do with bodybuilding! 

Likewise, training a 40-year old, overweight individual has nothing to do with bodybuilding. Personal Fitness Training has little to do with the type of sports conditioning required of a competitive athlete. 

Your athletic achievements, though a well-earned source of pride and display of dedication and discipline, do not prove your competence to train others safely and effectively. Your IFPA certification shows a level of professional competence far superior to any championship when it comes to becoming a successful personal fitness trainer.
2... I have a Masters Degree in Exercise Physiology - Do I really need the certificate?
Congratulations on completing a very demanding course of study! Once certified, this education will set you apart from other personal trainers. 

However, you do need a certification. Even with a Masters Degree most gym owners will not hire you and most insurances companies will not insure you. Despite 2 (or more) years of dedicated academic study, most gyms know that you have little or no practical application in fitness. Certifications satisfy this demand.
3... How do I become an IFPA member?
Once you purchase and pass a certification exam, you are a member. 

At the end of two years, you must renew your certification by purchasing either 12 CEUs (continuing education units) that will renew you for an additional year or 24 CEUs that will renew you for two years.
4... Where do I have to go to take the IFPA Personal Trainer Exam and what is the process of setting up a testing location?
The IFPA Personal Trainer Exam is a closed book, proctored exam. When you are ready to take the exam, you will contact your local library/college/university or testing center to set up a time and date for you to take the exam. 

After you have setup your testing location, call the IFPA and give the information to our Testing Department. (If you have a difficult time locating a testing center, the Testing Department will help you pin down a location.) 

Our Testing Director will call the testing center and after confirming the location, will send out the exam. After you take the exam, the exam will be sent back in an IFPA prepaid envelope by the proctor. Once we receive your test, it will take up to 4-6 weeks to send you your results by email. It is very important for you to give us an accurate email address.

URGENT NOTE:

Please be aware that our testing protocols may change due to the COVID-19 situation. We're doing our best to cover all exams through an on-line proctoring procedure and get you the Exam results as quickly as we can. If you need your Exam results ASAP, you can take advantage of our rush processing as previously described.

We will provide all necessary information upon your registration.


We do not discuss results over the phone. If you need results ASAP, we offer a rush processing for $25. You will receive your results in three business days by e-mail from the day we receive the exam.
5... What score do I need to pass the Personal Trainer Certification Exam? 
You need an 80% to pass the IFPA Personal Trainer Exam.
6... What materials are provided when I sign up for the IFPA Certification?
The materials you receive will depend on what package you purchase. We have three packages to choose from; Premium VIP, Classic and Exam only. 

Information for all the packages and what they include can be found by clicking HERE. 
7... What is the format of The IFPA Personal Trainer Exam?
The IFPA Personal Trainer Exam is a multiple choice closed book exam. Five of the questions are not graded; they are for statistical purposes only. 

You have 1 hour and 40 minutes to take the exam. Just like any important exam, make sure you get a good nights sleep, a nutritious breakfast and lunch depending what time you chose to take the exam, relax, breathe, you’re going to do great!
8... What do I need to bring to the Personal Trainer Testing location?
Bring pencils, and your driver’s license. You will not be able to take your bag, books, or any study materials into the room where you are taking the exam. The Personal Fitness Trainer Certification Examination is a closed book, proctored exam.

URGENT NOTE:

Due to our online proctoring service, you'll need to have a computer equipped with a working camera and a microphone. Take care that there are no computer issues during testing, like operating system updates or other updates that might cause a restart during testing.
