“Over the past 3 days, I’ve gained a lot of useful knowledge on how to train clients properly and safely to improve posture and allow optimal performance. Not only that, I’ve also learnt effective communication skills when it comes to working with clients.

I got my NASM CPT certificate here and learned a lot from the workshop and from the amazing PFC team. The team guided me through every step from the beginning until now. They really put their heart and passion in managing the academy and providing professional services and fitness education. Big thumbs up to the PFC team!

"I really enjoyed the fitness course from a more scientific perspective and I absolutely loved the atmosphere of the workshop! It helped me gain a deeper understanding of fitness and the exercises in terms of why we should do it in certain ways.

The live workshop was very well organised, clear instructions, very detailed, and very enthusiastic coaches!”
