Afpa American Fitness Professionals And Associates Reviews
I’ve incorporated more of my sports conditioning knowledge into my workouts so not only will I have a fit physique, but an athletic one as well to continue competing in races. AND, I just started instructing a new Parent/Child fitness class at one of our middle schools! It’s a lot of hard work on my part, but I wouldn’t be where I am today and the opportunities I have in the future, without AFPA. I still have a few more certifications I’ll be purchasing in the future, but I’m very happy to have found such a great organization. Thank you AFPA!! -
I had a great experience with AFPA. I was able to study at my own pace and complete my course in my own time. I feel like I received a great wealth of knowledge that I can now share with others to help with meeting their lifestyle goals.
My learning experience while going through the AFPA Certification process was fantastic! The course was perfect for people with little or no previous experience while remaining challenging for a seasoned professional. I am the founder of The Better Health Network, an organization to help educate people worldwide about the latest advances in nutritional supplements and weight loss programs. My learning experience through AFPA helped me to better understand the clinical studies that I use on a daily basis, so that I am better able to explain their significance to my clients. I am looking forward to a long relationship with AFPA and will promote the certification process wherever possible. I feel the experience and materials were an excellent value for the investment cost. Thank you.
It was an absolute delight going through the AFPA certification process. I have received my certifications both in Personal Training & Nutrition & Wellness Consultant. I will recommend AFPA to anyone interested in the Fitness/Nutrition field.
I would like to tell you that after obtaining my AFPA Personal Trainer certification last year my training career took off. First of all, I learned a vast quantity of information at the seminar, but preparing the exam gave me the reinforcement of your information that gave me the confidence I needed to become successful. I work in a local community center where within three months of passing your exam I was given a supervisory position. Six months later I was promoted to the head trainer position at the facility. – D. Steinberg
