Personal Trainer Testimonials
at PFTA Personal Trainer Certification School because I knew I needed more structure than just studying at home. With my athletic background, I knew my way around the weight-room, but now-a-days experience isn’t always enough. I looked at other options but PFTA was what I was looking for:
a great program at an affordable price. The best part was the
sports nutrition and how the body adapts to resistance and aerobic training. By taking this class, I have become more aware of my fitness level and I have been able to
improve myself as well as many of my clients. Thanks again PFTA. I would definitely
recommend this program to everyone!

was a big risk quitting my job to become a personal trainer; but, helping people
with exercise and nutrition is my passion. Not only have I made personal training a rewarding career,
I have also learned a lot about myself and my workouts. After tweaking my
workouts the last few months, I have grown bigger and stronger than ever.
I can't wait to for my bodybuilding show in November!!

trapezius muscle is a large diamond-shaped muscle that covers most of your upper back. It sits on top of other important muscles such as your latissimus dorsi, teres major, and rhomboids. The large trapezius muscle can be divided into three sections: the
upper traps, the middle traps, and the lower traps. In order to strengthen the entire muscle, you and your clients must perform 4 different movements: scapular
elevation, scapular depression, scapular
retraction, and scapular upward rotation.

It was only a matter of time before a
wrongful death lawsuit was brought against a personal trainer. This case has finally shed a light on the personal training industry. It seems that for years, gyms have been cutting corners and hiring anyone to fill personal training needs at their gyms. Now more than ever, there needs to be some regulation on the personal training industry. It appears that legislation is moving towards more educated, more experienced trainers.
Most gyms do NOT accept online certifications and it's only a matter of time before the government shuts them down too.

triceps brachii consists of 3 heads: the lateral head, the medial
head, and the long head. Along with the anconeus, the
tricpes brachii is primarily responsible for
elbow extension. All 3 heads of the tricep are
active during all tricep exercises; but, there are some exercises
that seem to
emphasize one particular head over the other two.

The goals for the
post-workout meal is (1) get into anabolic state, (2) eliminate metabolic waste, (3) replenish
glycogen, (4) start building muscle, and (5) bolster immune system. However, the window of opportunity opens and shuts very quickly so
you need to act fast. After 1 hour, the window begins to close; after 4 hours, the window is shut! And these goals are for everyone...not just bodybuilders!

personal trainers, we get lots of questions about the
"fat burning zone"; but, as Fitness Professionals, we need to make sure
we are educated before we begin to educate our clients. One myth that has been
floating around for years is the "fat burning zone". It was
once believed that exercising at a lower intensity would burn more fat
than exercising at a higher intensity. This misinterpretation or myth spread
after several studies concluded that high intensity exercise relied more on
