Testimonials from AMFPT Graduates

"Thanks so much for the great course. I found this course to be very thorough, with high-quality information presented in a concise manner. As an emergency physician and the director of a cardiac rehab and fitness center, I found the course very helpful. The personal fitness and training information presented in this course is far beyond what most physicians are taught, yet Greg Ladd presents the material in a clear and understandable fashion. I heartily recommend this course!"

John Carson - MD. Yuma, AZ

Jennifer Karasick-Masulis - Cleveland, OH


"Thanks to AMFPT, I have received the confidence and the necessary certification to become a personal fitness trainer! At first, I was timid about the certification, thinking that the ones that require a weekend retreat were crucial to my career. Of course, those certifications are NOT necessary to land a job as a personal trainer in almost all the gyms! I have just been offered three job offers the same day I received this certification. Thanks to Greg and his excellent course, I am now able to train clients with the added benefit that Greg has given me numerous techniques and secrets in a way that is very easy to understand."

Nivedita Jerath - Augusta, GA

"Dear Mr. Turull (NY City Class Instructor),

Want to say thanks again for everything. I just want to say that it's because of you, I've found new success.

I have my own clientale now, even have some at Trump Plaza, where I've trained with Derek Jeter training right along side of me. Halle Berrie was on her way in as I was on my way out, so it's been quite exciting for me to see the other side of celebs when they’re not in the fashion realm.

Again my success is contributed to you and I know your used to the glitz and glam of PT."

Thanks, Sincerely,

"I just wanted to thank you and your staff for the efficant and competent way you handle business. Whenever I do business online, I always have reservations, especially when it involves a credit card transaction. Your organization is obviously well organized and I'm a very satisfied customer. I feel privileged to have received my PT/Master PT certification from AMFPT. Thank you also for answering all of my questions about the exam. Your patience was greatly appreciated.

I don't consider personal training a job, but a career that I take seriously. I competed in my first NPC Figure competition in November '04, which was no easy feat being a single mom, but it paid off. I came in third place and walked away quite pleased. The knowledge I acquired from training for my show will improve the quality of my business, and I plan to take it as far as I can. Thank you for being a part of my journey !"

"I very much enjoyed your course so very understandable and a concise interpretation. Being a retired,natural bodybuilder (I did my last show in '99), I wanted to stay in the fitness field. Whether I want to train here at my cabin on the lake near the highest point in Alabama -- setting up my own training facility -- or starting off with Gold's gym, I now have the certification to do both. I went in a couple of weeks ago to use the rest room at a neaby Gold's Gym and just happened to ask about personal training, they exclaimed that they needed one now and said when I receive certification come on back."

Retired natural bodybuilder,

Michael Ray Luker - Lineville, AL

This has been a huge help I would recommend this course to become any type of physical trainer to anyone, its knowledgeable, quick, and non expensive."

Again, thank you.

It is beneficial to have access to colored pictures of various exercises along with a brief review of human anatomy that are target areas of Pilates. A feature of this training that includes establishing a business is a special bonus!"

Camille Williams - Gulfport MS


"I loved all the courses that I took through AMFPT! I have been practicing natural health and exercise therapy for years as well as doing personal training and still found the courses challenging and enlightening. I felt that they gave me a broader view of my field and offered up to date info that my clients as well as myself could benefit from.

My favorite part about the courses is the fact that they are practically designed for adults and expect the trainer to take full responsibility for their continued education and success.

Overall, I have to say that the experience I ahd with AMFPT has been exceptional."

Thanks so much!

Jennifer Kornberger MFT, RMT - St. Louis, MO

Training other people who want to excel in fitness has been a great honor for me. Thank you!"

"I also wanted to let you, since getting certified I have only had a few clients all good and all were very happy with the results. Once I got certified I put my logo and phone number on the back of my SUV. Well today driving to my office a guy 2 cars back called me to see if I would be willing to train him and his wife in their home. Something as simple as a window sticker for $30.00 paying off in a different state after a relocation.

Anyways, thank you for updating my info and I am looking forward to building my PT business here in Florida."

Ross Semplice- Ft. Lauderdale, FL


"Thanks Greg and AMFPT for the Sports Nutritionalist Certification. This is just what I was looking for to help my clients and earn extra income. A great learning experience."
