Excellent for Practical Knowledge!!!

I chose IFPA because of the hands on experience from their field leaders and teachers. Everyone knows that hands on experience will tell you much more than a book will. I appreciated the extra tidbits about running that you can only learn from a marathon runner, the extra tidbits about bodybuilding and firing different muscle fibers from a pro, and the extra tidbits about healthy eating and nutrition from those who are living the lifestyle.
It's these extra tips coupled with my own personal experience with fitness and in the gym that really make training other people come alive. When you can work with a person and see ONLY their body mechanics and posture, you have become a Trainer. You can only truly appreciate this if you do what you teach. Lead by example, life the lifestyle and eventually, you will feel comfortable training anyone.
The DVDs were great, definitely recommend the workshop, and study because the test will make sure you know your stuff.
