FITA school of Hawthorne, CA

by Kimakaze
(IL)

I read someone's comment on the Fitness Instruction and Training Academy based in Hawthorne, CA and it sounds phenomenal!... the best that I've heard about yet! Of course, that could have just been a biased comment of some sort. Also, is this school well-known or just starting out? If it was one of the major schools and is as good as it sounds, I figured that you'd have information on it posted on this site. Please post more information on this school if anyone knows more, possibly from those who have actually been through the program!

FITA Fitness recommendation
by: megan, newport beach

My experience with FITA (Newport Beach CA location) far surpassed my expectations. Joe's knowledge of the subject matter and his many years of industry experience is invaluable to anyone wanting to work in this business! The curriculum was a good mix of subject matters and the time spent in the gym gave us the opportunity to learn new exercises, ensure proper form, create exercise programs, and practice spotting techniques. Much of what Joe taught us cannot be found in the books and this is the critical information and experience that really sets FITA students apart from trainers who just simply take the test to get certified. Not only did he give me all the knowledge and skills needed to become a great personal trainer, but he inspired me to build a home gym and start my own personal training business. Joe was there every step of the way, consulting me about everything from what equipment to purchase to what size mirrors I should use. I would highly recommend FITA to anyone looking to pursue a career in the health and fitness industry!

FITA Fitness Academy, Newport Beach and Hawthorne, CA

FITA Fitness - Fitness Instruction and Training Academy in Newport Beach & Hawthorne, CA offers a 500 hour Personal Training Certification course that include 200 hours of in-gym practical application. The curriculum is so comprehensive, it is like getting a 4 year degree but it only takes 6 months.

Founded on the ACSM exercise science and techniques with a concentration in Anatomy and Physiology as it applies to strength conditioning including muscles and their action. It encompasses Assessment and Program Design, Rehabilitation and Core training techniques as well as Nutrition, Industry theory and practice.

Upon completion of the course I was able to read a Doctors MRI report and speak the language of PTs and MDs as it relates to the body. Anyone graduating from this course is ready to enter the field with the expertise and confidence to start their own independent consulting business.

I can't say enough good things about the founder, Joe Dolci and his course. You graduate with the FITA Master Personal Training Certification and FITA Nutritional Consultant Certification and you are prepared to sit for the ACSM CPT and FITA will reimburse the test fee upon passing! They will assist in job placement and provide financial assistance. It is truly a quality institution!

Best Training in OC, CA
by: April

Wanting a career change, I called up FITA Fitness. After speaking with Joe Dolci on our first meeting, I knew I wanted to be one of his students. I was attracted to his passion for fitness and nutrition, his wealth of knowledge, and, of course, the small sized part-time classes and the one-on-one training he offers. Class was a joy. Joe lectures and then there's discussion -- as many as it takes for everyone in the class to understand -- and then there's demonstration. There was never any question he could not answer and explain in layman's terms so that everyone was able to comprehend. I have completed my course with Joe, passed my examination and am now certified with the FITA certification and National Strength and Conditioning Association and will be taking the American College of Sports Medicine because of the FITA course study. I was hired at the first place I applied and have begun my career as a personal trainer. FITA has given me the confidence and the guidance to set my goals, which is to compete in an amateur body building competition next year and build my own PT business.
