About Trainer Academy
Trainer Academy was created because of the need for high-quality study materials in the fitness industry. Our team members hold various personal trainer certifications and have years of experience. We all come from slightly different training backgrounds, which makes our combined knowledge something special.
I noticed that some of the personal training certifications had as low as a 50% pass rate. That was unacceptable. I had to do something about it.– Martin, President of Trainer Academy
Through years of experience and countless hours of research, Trainer Academy has become the leader in providing premium study materials for many major fitness certifications.
The Trainer Academy Mission – “Trainer Academy provides aspiring fitness professionals the resources they need to get certified for a successful career in the fitness industry. From our own NCCA-accredited CPT program to our award-winning study materials, we ensure our students excel as personal trainers, coaches, and group exercise instructors from day one.”
We adhere to the high standards that we set in the creation and administration of our Trainer Academy CPT, as well as throughout each and every fitness article our team comes together to create.
It is essential that Trainer Academy live up to this mission and provide each and every one of our learners and readers with quality studying and writing from the minds of fitness professionals.
