The Athletic Certification Training Commission (ACT) was launched by a group of like-minded personal trainers who want to change the way the certification industry operates. Our mission is quite simple.
• Put the emphasis on education and learning rather than memorization and test taking
• Consistently develop and certify personal trainers that can add value to their clients
• Become the dominant force in educating new personal trainers
We believe the ultimate success of a personal trainer is determined by their knowledge, not their certifications. A knowledgeable personal trainer will be able to make a dramatic impact on their client and favorably impact the industry as a whole.
We have spent countless hours developing the curriculum, writing the textbook, and preparing the toolkit for the next generation of personal trainers. We hope you like it. But we also hope that you embrace our mission and help us improve our program.
