Yoga Certification Primary
Good information, inexpensive certification
Posted September 30, 2011 by Anonymous
If you have limited exposure to yoga, this is probably not the certification for you. I've had exposure and had a very helpful mentor throughout my studying/training, which helped greatly. The study guide is somewhat disjointed, but has everything I needed for gym yoga.

It's good for the beginner yoga instructor. I got a better comfort level with the names of poses and it boosted my confidence to go out and teach a class.

Indoor Cycling Certification Primary
Easy to follow

The video portion of this certification was very helpful and detailed. She didn't just read from the manual and demonstrated all techniques for easier understanding. The manual was a great review for general fitness information and has great examples for a beginning instructor to utilize for their first classes!

I enjoyed this class. It was great to do this on my time and speed. Very informative!!! Would recommend!! Thanks FITOUR!!

The group exercise certification is a very basic study IF you have already studied fitness. If you haven't it is good beginning and the affordability is perfect for a beginning fitness professional. Reading the book first and then watching the DVD for review really helped instill the knowledge

Rhonda was AWESOME!!!
More physical instruction

Most of class was spent on book work for exam, then a work out of participants but there was little instruction on how to do the classroom stuff and how to do chorerography

I enjoyed taking the test but some of the questions were not available for me in your book. I wasn't sure were to reasearch the answer. I also listened to the dvd and she did not say anything either on some questions I missed. I am not a very good test taker but all questions on the test should be in located in the book for definitive answers thankyou
great for basic group x learning.

Boot Camp Fitness Certification Primary
Very educating course
Posted August 19, 2011 by Iris from Durham, NC
A few of the statements regarding running I do not agree with. The overall experience was a good one.

Great information, friendly, knowledgeable instructor. Useful information. Not a waste of time or money.
Great Information but wish book was in PDF form
Posted April 12, 2011 by Mark from Dallas, TX
All the information need to setup and run a great bootcamp. Thanks you, Mark.P.S. Check question 49 on test I think "complete" is the wrong word in the question? Thanks again, Mark :)
FiTOUR® Modern Pilates Certification
The book by Rael Isacowitz is extremely thorough.
Posted August 9, 2011 by Linda Navarro from Hollywood, FL
There was so much involved with the information in this book. It would have been helpful to view a DVD of some of the different exercises on the equipment (maybe mat exercises, too). Unless you've worked on this equipment there is no sure way of knowing the full scope. I recommend a 2 day workshop for this certification. I know I need additional training other than reading and trying the mat exercises on my own.

Was a very diverse class, just wish there was a better way to review the text other that lecture.
Personal Training Certification PRIMARY
Covers All The Basics Very Comprehensively
Posted August 5, 2011 by Patrick Marsh from Towson, MD
I'm doing this on the way to the Master Practitioner certification and the main feedback I would offer is true for any online exam like this where it is possible to be open book - as it would be impossible to police this anyway. I would give no more than one minute of time per question otherwise you leave way too much time for people to hunt for answers and to not really learn the material. This reduces the passing rate for sure but it ensures at least some measure of "memorized" knowledge. I would also suggest mixing up the order of the questions so that they don't run in order with the order of the study material. This again accomplishes some of what my first point was all about. I greatly appreciate the fact that you guys strive to make these certifications affordable but would be a little hesitant to hire a trainer with only these certifications. They do make for great continuing ed and for doing this in a much more economic fashion than many providers out there which is probably the FiTour niche in many ways anyway. Thanks and very solid product. Some typos throughout where words are cut off at bottom of pages. The body comp sites for men seem to be impossible to see and the model appears to have a touch of gynecomastia ( sorry but I've been around a lot of fitness models and bodybuilders over the years ). I'm also not sure if the body fat equations in the booklet are clear enough or perhaps innaccurate. Please don't display this review; some might take it negatively and I wouldn't want that at all. You guys serve a very necessary part of our industry.
Good introductory instr. for those seeking to become PT
Posted June 12, 2011 by Tony Scott from Durham, NC
The lessons taught from this material was basic, informative, easy to follow and very good for those who are just entering into the personal training experience. As suggested in your instructions one should continue to build upon the knowledge acquired w/in this material. Thanks

Aqua Certification Primary
Posted August 1, 2011 by Fred from Bella Vista, AR
Really enjoyed the course. Technical information was shared very easily. Once you hit the water, all the information was very user friendly. Instructor was very professional; her knowledge was in-depth, yet on a level that the class could understand.
FiTOUR® Senior Fitness Certification
I learn a lot!
Posted July 11, 2011 by Zumba Veronica
I enjoy the experience. I recommend!
Posted May 17, 2011 by Diane Buckles from Elizabethtown, KY
The information in the manual was helpful and validated a lot of what I already knew but I was a little disappointed that the publication date was 2003. There is so much new information coming out about exercise and the senior population. Are you planning an updated edition or an addendum to add to this one?Diane Buckles, RN, MSN

Pilates Certification Primary
Good, knowledgeable instructor.Made group comfortable.
Posted June 3, 2011 by Cheryl Webb from Memphis, TN
For those without fitness background more focus on what certain muscle groups are and why we do certain moves/exercise would be helpful.Regarding test, would like to know what I missed since wording/phrasing of question can be misleading and not exactly how stated in trng material.
Stability Ball Fitness Certification
Stability Ball exercises are for everyone.
Posted April 20, 2011 by Christy from Bartlett, TN
There was a variety of exercises that address the whole body, not just the powerhouse. Exercises are easily taught and the levels enable the instructor to teach any fitness level. Well-organized. I feel that some of the exercise names could be changed to be more user or layperson friendly. Easy for instructor to remember and for the class participants to remember or recognize.
