NPE and IFA Announce Partnership To Create a Pipeline of Highly Qualified, Well-Mentored Personal Trainers
BRISBANE, QLD, Australia – Responding to a need for personal trainers who are highly trained and have been mentored in the practical environment of a studio or gym by expert coaches, fitness education company International Fitness Academy and fitness business education company NPE are announcing a new partnership.
IFA and NPE are working together to offer Trainer Academy, a program to allow studio and gym orders across Australia the ability to certify personal trainers within their own facilities.
Student-trainers will get practical, real-world experience by learning how to apply their knowledge with real clients–and get expert mentorship in gyms on their way to attaining full certification as a personal trainer.
Studio/gym owners will have an opportunity to create a pipeline of outstanding personal trainers they can develop to become part of their own teams.
IFA members will learn how to build an amazing pipeline of interns, part-time, and full time staff… all while further positioning their businesses as market leaders in their local area and generating more revenue along the way!
“Too many fitness business owners get stuck because they don’t have enough trainers, or the right team of coaches, to support continued growth,” said NPE Founder & CEO Sean Greeley. “They struggle to grow because they don’t have a talent bench to draw from as their business is growing.This partnership solves that problem and helps IFA members to make money doing it.
“Also, too many newly certified personal trainers leave the industry because they don’t have the right mentorship to support their career. Together, we’re here to change that.”
IFA members will learn how to recruit from their local area potential trainers and fast-track them through a Cert 3 and Cert 4 program–while also delivering additional programming and methodology on the studio/gym owners specific systems of training clients.
“The bar for quality, knowledge and practical-based fitness professionals in Australia was high – and getting higher.” It is not enough to simply complete a personal training qualification in Australia anymore, the standards have changed, and people are expecting more from qualified trainers than ever before,” Mr Rhys Davies, IFA founder and CEO, said. “An industry recognised personal training qualification is crucial, but it also the hands-on, knowledge and practical-based skills that will set someone apart.”
