    Trifocus Fitness Academy was always there to help, irrespective of doing a distance learning course. I could still phone them and they would help the best they could.  I learned a lot that I didn’t know before even though I’ve been involved with bodybuilding for a while now. It was very informative and it really educated me in terms of my perspective about the things I already knew and how I do my training etc. It’s a definite go-to college if you want a qualification in fitness.

    I realised that everybody’s body is different you got have to try different things with your clients.

    My local gym suggested a few institutions through whom I can obtain the qualification I wanted. I researched all three the institutions and because Trifocus Fitness Academy provided me with the option to obtain my certification online, I chose Trifocus Fitness Academy. This meant that I can obtain my qualification at my own pace, without impacting on my travel obligations – it suited my situation 100%. I found the learning material to be structured in a manner that allowed me to work through the material progressively. Since becoming qualified through Trifocus my own lifestyle has taken a step in the right direction.

    I googled fitness courses and found Trifocus Fitness Academy website. It was user friendly, well-advertised, and I really liked the idea of doing a correspondence course. Courses are accredited so I trust the quality. Plus you have flexibility and a good student support team.

    I would definitely recommend Trifocus to people I know, because I had a good experience. Learning about fitness and nutrition really helped me to support a good conversation. Plus I apply everything I’ve learnt for myself.

    Where Can I Do A Fitness Course?

    There are a lot of options that you can choose from when deciding on a fitness course that is right for you. For instance, you can choose to go for a course that is taught in a classroom where you’ll have the opportunity to interact with your instructor and other students face to face. This option is great if you live near to the college and is also superb for networking. As a fitness professional, it is essential to have a strong network so that you can draw on your colleagues’ expertise and trouble shoot issues in your business, which you may find challenging, with them.

    The other option, when choosing a fitness course, is looking for one that is taught online. Although you will not have the benefit of the real-time interaction with your classmates you will be able to study at your own pace, when and where you want to do so. The only proviso is that you would need to have a steady internet connection. This means that people who still need to work, but want to make the transition to the fitness industry, still have the ability to study.

    The type of fitness course that you choose needs to fit in with your lifestyle but we strongly recommend that the programme you choose is accredited, both nationally and internationally. Also, it needs to involve a period where you will shadow an experienced fitness professional so that you can put the knowledge you’ve gained in the classroom into use.

    Where Can I Do A Fitness Course?

    Trifocus Fitness Academy is indeed internationally recognised. Our academy of fitness and our fitness courses are REPSSA accredited and accepted throughout Europe, Australia, UK and New Zealand. We also hold the ACAP accreditation through ICE which is accepted throughout America and Canada.
