I need a personal trainerLearn About Training From Infofit’s Elite

Infofit is recognized as a leading fitness education provider of the highest quality. For anyone seeking a career in the health and fitness industry, we provide certifications that are internationally recognized and respected.

The Personal Training Apprenticeship Training Program (ATP ) allows students to practice “hands-on” training with clients in a safe and supportive environment. This course is self paced with supervision from the ATP supervisor at each stage.

Hands on Experience with Infofit’s Personal Training Apprenticeship Program

ATP takes students through the entire personal training process; from the initial consultation to one-on-one training. Students will create a variety of programs, including actively training clients. Feedback will be given by both the client and supervising instructor.  By the end of the program, students are comfortable and competent in completing individualized client programs.

The ATP curriculum is comprehensive and ever changing to ensure that students receive the most current fitness research and information available. Students will have access to a large library of resources and be a working part of our elite training team. The only requirement for ATP is a set commitment of time and a passion for helping people live healthier and happier lives.
