About BECOME A PERSONAL TRAINER >>>


CEFA was founded by a group of Personal Trainers and Fitness Professionals who saw a need for affordable and quality certification in the fitness industry. As they progressed in their careers they saw a common problem of fitness certifications with inflated prices. They came together with the vision of bringing positive change to the industry and raising the standards of fitness certifications.

And so the Council of Exercise Fitness and Athletics (CEFA) was born.

We have streamlined the process of becoming certified in the fitness industry in an effort to make high quality, industry recognized certification available to anyone who has the drive and motivation to pursue it.

CEFA is about self study and self discipline. We are the guide, but it is up to you to study the material we provide at no cost. We will show you the way and give you the resources you need to accomplish your goals. However, just as with the Personal Trainer and the client, it all comes down to your dedication to success. Learning is easy. Application is hard.
