PFTA Austin is pleased to announce updates to the PFTA Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) offerings. The CPT course is our signature class providing classroom and hands on gym training to better prepare you for national exams. This course is designed to help you understand the human body and functionality, including working with people of various ages and health issues. You will begin by learning about human anatomy including the joint actions, primary movers, and exercises for various body parts. You will also learn about functional movements, the various systems that comprise the human body, and bioenergetics. After learning about the body, you will then learn about planning for clients including special populations, sports psychology, and nutrition. The understanding of clients will help prepare you for the next phase of program planning and design, as well as client health and fitness assessments. Finally, with an understanding of the human body and the various clients you might encounter, you will learn how to become a personal trainer in the fitness industry.
We are continuing our current offerings of:
- Tuesday and Thursday from 10am – 2pm
- Wednesday 6pm – 10pm
- Saturday from 10am – 2pm
Our classroom location is 8500 Shoal Creek Boulevard, Bldg. 2 Ste. H, Austin, TX 78757 where you can learn from our oldest instructor “Bones”!
