PREPARATION FOR NATIONAL CERTIFICATION EXAMS
The Smart Workout Academy is a training program, not a certification. It is designed to give you
the theoretical knowledge and practical skills that you will need to get started as a Group Fitness
Instructor and Personal Trainer.
The Smart Workout Academy will help you prepare for many national certifications, such as
AFAA Primary Group Fitness, and ACE Personal Training. Our program will help clarify many
of the concepts found in the study guides of these organizations, by providing a foundation in the
basics of anatomy, fitness testing, program design, and more.
EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE PROGRAM
This program does not guarantee you a job with Smart Workout. This is a stand-alone training
program designed to provide career changers and novice trainers with the fundamental tools
that they will need to succeed in the fitness industry. The training in this program is an excellent
preparation for national certification exams, and for starting a career with a fitness facility.
But to be clear, Smart Workout would welcome and encourage the top talent of this program to
apply to become a part of our team.
