AFPA feels like more of a family. I can always email or reach out if I have any questions and I get a response immediately. It’s a very caring organization. I’ve been certified with other organizations and that’s not always the case.”
I searched left and right for something that was accredited, affordable, and was really extensive. I found AFPA, which checked all those boxes and then some. I loved that they have been around for over 27 years. It was great that the certification was flexible and I could still homeschool my kids while studying.”

Great course, fun and scientific way of thinking about nutrients and what to eat. I actually learned a lot! Just wish it was longer and more in-depth. The supplemental study handouts were great in-depth info!
I'm so glad I finally took the plunge to take this course. I've been researching courses for years and decided on AFPA because I like that they are working to become an approved course for NBHWC. I also like that eligible graduates can become board certified through AADP.
The videos are VERY in-depth and I am able to listen to them while driving. The simulated coaching sessions are extremely helpful and help you learn how to put everything into practice. The handouts and recommended reading has also been valuable. I truly feel that upon completion, I will be able to build a successful health coaching practice. Thanks AFPA!
This course is way better than NASM. It’s understandable and easier to do. I also love the books this program recommended. I think one of the best parts of this course is it gives you a syllabus and you can always get a hold of them by calling them if you do have a question, but so far no need to do this because of how easy it is to understand.
I love the new Certificate Renewal process. Simple, easy, smooth and FAST!
Love it! The information will lead to a lot of health for many people.
This whole experience has been great. I love yoga and this course has given me more knowledge on it. The fact I can take my time and really let it all sink in has been a great experience. When every I have a question I get a response very quickly.
My initial forays by looking at the textbooks and opening materials in this class seem to indicate that the course is of high quality.
Best decision ever! I love their quick response. Very much so! By far the one of the greatest decisions I have ever made in my life! Thank you to all the Instructors, & the whole staff on leading me to one of my biggest desires & accomplishments.
Thank you ,
I am currently studying this course and the materials are in-depth and extremely helpful with illustrations and full descriptions. I know when I finish this course and take the exam that I will be ready to be a nutrition consultant, having full knowledge in all covered areas and will truly be an asset to my clients.
I'm about to finish my study and very glad that it's a lot of information !
As a new trainer I have used this book as my training Bible. If you've been a trainer for years and can’t easily adjust your sessions or have a structure on how you plan I would highly recommend this!!
Every time I needed help with anything, they helped me quick. I love AFPA
I have been in a place of personal reset and since I took your training with holistic nutritionist and continue to certify it's been hard to market myself. But I learned to apply what you taught me and coupled with some other things I have learned I know the next move is the personal trainer certification. So thank you for the chance to be able to begin to mentor people. I'm trying to put my own personal testimony together called my personal Reset I had this started seven months before I ever checked into this and so imagine the encouragement I received when the beginning of the class they talked about reset. Thank you for your continued guidance have a blessed day.
I am thankful - this summer has been very hectic. I am excited to continue in my studies
