Become a Specialized Authority in a Targeted Niche

Everyone has individual needs, goals and personal interests when it comes to fitness and wellness. Narrowing down your subject matter expertise will allow you to captivate a larger audience of clients who are looking for your niche-specific services. Becoming the master of a certain subset of fitness proves to others that you’re highly knowledgeable and can give clients the results they want.

If you are a fitness professional who wants to take it to the next level, adding a specialty certification into your arsenal is one of the fastest and most effective ways to become the trusted go-to personal trainer or fitness instructor.

The way my life has changed after getting the certification is like a complete 180, honestly. I definitely could not have counseled people the way I do now without AFPA. I was surprised the most when I just realized really how much I was learning. I knew I was going to learn a lot, and that there were so many different curriculum topics, but at the end of it, I learned even so much more than I expected."

Candace Bell, Holistic Nutritionist Certification

I looked at a lot of certifications out there. You name it, I’ve looked at it, but AFPA stood out to me. They’re out-of-the-box thinkers and so am I. The certification process was fairly easy, it was very effective, and fun to learn."

Andrew Schuth, Personal Trainer Certification
