Back in 2012, the idea of creating a fitness education business sounded exciting, but far fetched with so many big corporate players dominating the market. Could a strength coach and a personal trainer from South East Pennsylvania create a successful continuing education business? Well… It was worth a shot. After months of batting the idea around, researching the competition, and polling local trainers Fit EDU was born. The concept was simple… Get all of our tried and tested coaching and fitness skills/tools on paper to share with fellow trainers and coaches. Our concept is to make fitness professionals better at what they do by providing current, high-quality, local, and affordable seminars with a lower instructor to student ratio than the competition. Our seminars are designed to provide fitness professionals with practical skills that can be immediately implemented without abandoning their current training philosophies. Today, Fit EDU has five curricula:
Kettlebell Coach Level 1
Kettlebell Coach Level 2
Barbell Coach Level 1
Breathing and Postural Control
In the coming years, offerings will include live and online seminars.
In our years working in the field, we have identified a significant gap between the skills acquired in formal schooling and the current techniques being utilized by practitioners. Fit EDU was founded to help bridge that gap. At Fit EDU, we understand and value the significance of exercise physiology, but stay current with industry trends. We pride ourselves on helping practitioners apply sound exercise physiology to new training techniques. Whether you are training clients or own/manage a facility, we can help you or your staff better serve clients through educational seminars and certifications.
