FEA Certified Fitness Practitioner Level 1- Fitness Instructor (Exercise Coaching)

Course Overview
The FEA Certified Fitness Practitioner (Personal Training) “CFP” is a revolutionary personal
training certification which aims to produce fitness professionals with better practical and
applied skills in coaching client’s movement, implementing safe & effective exercise
programs and client management skills to match the diverse needs and expectations of
clients. These are indeed the key job competencies of personal trainers in Asia. We believe
good education and training will focus on what the learners need the most in practice (as
opposed to what is good to know) thus creating graduates with high-level of employability
and demand.
In Level 1, you will learn Exercise Coaching in this fitness instructing certification. You will
learn how to coach clients to perform exercises based on the principles of stability & mobility
as well as functional movements, from basic to complex exercises. You will be introduced to
FEA A.C.T Model which explains how we should progress exercises in resistance training.
You will enjoy this new and highly efficient learning method with strong emphasis given to
job skills development. In addition to the live workshop, you will have access to our electronic
learning platform and materials that will allow you to learn at your own pace. Last but not
least, once you have completed Level 1 and 2 of CFP, you will only need a 3-day bridging
course to be prepared for American based personal training certifications (e.g. NASM, ACE,
ACSM and NSCA CPT) examination. This means FEA-CFP graduates will not only meet the key
competencies established by these world-class personal training examinations but also
possess stronger practical skills needed to excel in this industry.
