Personal Trainer Practical Competency (PTPC) Training

Personal Trainer Practical Competency (PTPC) Training

– Kettlebells
– Suspended Fitness Trainers
– Battle Ropes
– Power Bags
– YBells

“I recently spent 4 weekends at FIT Asia to prepare for my ACE-CPT exam. I had an awesome experience from the professional, knowledgeable and passionate team!

The course structure and content is sound, the hands-on portion was eye-opening and Dexter is one of the best educators I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. I have many experiences with educators who either merely read from recycled PowerPoint slides, or give me the impression that they are “just doing a job”. This is absolutely not the case here.

I was engaged, encouraged to think and reflect, and felt welcomed and accepted even before I applied for the course. Honestly, what I gained from this experience is, in my humble opinion, much more than I paid for. As a customer/consumer, I’m not sure what else you can ask for. I look forward to returning in the future.” – Johannes Lee, March 2021
