The Fitness Trainer Academy

The Fitness Trainer Academy (FTA) is the best personal trainer certification program in Texas. Our mission at FTA is to provide those looking to become certified personal trainers a nationally accredited certification, and much more. Not only will each student receive one of the industries top most recognized personal trainer certifications (NASM), but in addition they will undergo 40+ hours of both classroom and gym floor training. This provides each student with valuable hands-on experience that can’t be found anyplace else. The knowledge and experience that is provided through the FTA personal trainer certification course is above and beyond other programs.

Personal Training + Sports Nutrition

In addition to the personal training curriculum, we also cover sports nutrition during each student’s program. In our minds, students cannot become effective trainers without having a mastery of both subjects. We spend two weeks covering nutrition science (bioenergetics), metabolic calculations and client behavioral support. At the end of the program, an additional sports nutrition specialization is issued to each student. Our sports nutrition certificate lets clients and employers know you have additional training in sports nutrition.
