FITA school of Hawthorne, CA
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 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!
