Bonnie is a Certified Personal Training Specialist (CPTS)
Fitness specialists who successfully complete all five courses of the Fitness Institute International are awarded the ‘Certified Personal Training Specialist’ (CPTS) credential which is a ‘Registered’ mark. Having passed this quintet of rigorous courses, these individuals have gone the distance to establish their competency as personal trainers; and their CPTS certificate documents that they are not just ‘certified’ but rather truly ‘qualified’. They can display this credential with pride, for it reflects a greater knowledge base and skill level than any other personal trainer certificate available today. For this reason, it has been recognized as the most legally defensible personal trainer certificate in the industry.
The uniqueness of the Institute’s personal trainer program lies in the fact that it bridges the academic training of university courses with the practical experience found only within facilities. For this reason, the Institute provides the obvious training ground for the most highly skilled personal trainers in the country.
The past president of the National Strength & Conditioning Association who is currently the Executive Director of the NSCA Certification Commission was the keynote speaker at the Institute’s graduation and awards ceremony in 1996. As Dr. Baechle stated: “If trainers throughout the United States possessed the knowledge and qualities of Fitness Institute students (CPTS graduates), the status of personal training would equal that of physical therapy.”
A West Palm Beach publication noted that Gold Coast residents were fortunate to have a graduate school for fitness professionals right in their own backyard. The article closed with the statement: “The next time you need to confirm a personal trainer’s credentials, look for a ‘CPTS’ from Fitness Institute International. It is the choice of qualified fitness professionals.
