How can this makes you different from your peers and improve your business?
Like personal trainers and group exercise instructors, strength and conditioning coaches help others to improve their fitness.
But strength and conditioning coaches differ from the others in one very important way: the clients they work with are focused on improving their performance or skill in a sport. This is why strength and conditioning coaches work primarily with athletes and serious, motivated individuals.

You will attract clients that are enthusiastic, hard working and want to work with you on a long term basis. 
You might also even have the opportunity to work with a Sport team or club. In a nation like Singapore where the Sport Culture is growing exponentially, the possibilities are endless!

How to make the first step towards becoming a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist?
FIT Singapore is offering for the first time a four (4) day course that will be a preparation for the NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) exam.

The course will be held on Monday to Thursday, 22nd – 25th August 2016

(please note that there has been a change of date, previously 1-4 August)

What are my prospects for jobs?
Other than commercial gyms, there are so many places a Certified Personal Trainer can work from: health club, hotel, cruise ship, resorts, etc The sky is the limit.
Our academy partners up with TMP Fitness, a gym situated at Revenue House in Novena (this is also where the academy is situated). Through TMP, we offer a program of apprenticeship, meaning that after completing your certification, you can work with us, with the help of a mentor, to kick start your fitness career.

How can I deal with the competition?
 The Fitness industry is competitive, but remember that your confidence and individuality is what gives you this unique selling point that will attract potential clients.
Einstein said it “Knowledge is power”. Surrounding yourself with great role models and constantly upgrading yourself through continuing education will truly help you to make your fitness career a successful one. All courses we offer are instrumental in making you a successful personal trainer.
