I thought a couple of the questions were trying to trip me up and were not straight forward.

Pilates Certification Primary
overall good exam

Good Primary Pilates program
Posted March 11, 2020 by Rebecca from Oregon
I recently earned my Primary Pilates Certification after individually practicing 8 years. The distant learning course provides the fundamentals for new instructors to lead a class. I have taught several classes at my local studio during my first week and it is going well. I am considering the Barre certification program in the future too.
Group Fitness Certification Primary
Great for Basic Info, Not Up-To-Date
Posted February 5, 2020 by Christie
Great if you need something quick and very basic. Easy test. Not great if you're looking for current, up-to-date information. The manual was last updated in 2007. Grateful to have something quick, but in the long run, I'd rather invest in more current material, that will challenge me, and that I know will be accepted in all gyms (like AFAA).
Good for Fitness Theory, Modalities not very current
Posted October 29, 2019 by Kelly from California
This is my first certification, so I don't have anything to compare this course against. My initial response is that the information about the body was very educational. However, a lot of the exercise examples/class types were very out of date. She even mentions roller-blading! So, if you want to learn about fitness theory go for it, but don't expect this course to prepare you to teach a class.
Quality of Group Exercise Certification Training and Exam
Posted September 17, 2019 by Rosalyn
The material covered was thorough, clearly presented and relevant to this certification. The manual was helpful on what it covered. The videos, however, were simply a reading of the manual. Unless reading is a problem, the videos didn't add much to the instruction or learning. Also, one recommendation is that there be a full section on that describes actual exercises. Videos could be used to show proper form. As for the exam, while I passed with a very strong grade, it would be helpful to know the correct answers to the questions I didn't get right.
How to make better
Posted September 6, 2018 by Heather Hud
The things talked about in the book are VERY out dated for some of the classes considering they are 11 almost 12 years old. Many of these classes are no longer taught. I like that the on line part covers everything that the book does so one does not need to buy the book. I like the hard copy for my self, but nice that it is offered on line as well.
Answers to questions
Posted June 21, 2018 by Maggie - Idaho
I like Fitour, I have 3 certification from them. My only complaint is this...we should be able to find out which questions we got wrong on our exam. How are we supposed to learn as instructors isfyou don't let us know where we need to improve. Big flaw in the system!!!
Posted September 27, 2017 by S Hardy
How do I see what questions I missed on the test? It just gave me my score, that's it.
Boot Camp Fitness Certification Primary
some of the questions are not accurate. there are at least 3 where ALL of the answers are incorrect.
Posted January 29, 2020 by sidney from body by sid
the quiz was nice and quick which is good that it does not take a lot of time to complete.
boot camp by the book
Posted September 24, 2017 by Jane Ab-solute fitness
The information in this program was very good, especially about the business aspect. The breakdown of the program and exercises included seem very "stick to the script" except for the variations. I would do a little bit of a more active warm-up. I also felt like some of the calisthenics should be in cardio conditioning i.e. jump ropes and jacks. The same for exercises in calisthenics good for muscle conditioning. All in all pretty good.
FiTOUR® Modern Pilates Certification
Review of re-Certification,Modern Pilates
Posted December 6, 2019 by Amy V, Liberty Hill, Texas
For some reason, I could not get the review materials up in another window asIi have on previous reviews. That made it no fun. I had to "wing it" but still made a 96 !
Pilates Reformer Certification
Posted November 21, 2019 by Katherine
The study guide and information were very helpful, the test was 25 questions including multiple choice and true/false. I did find that one of the questions was written incorrectly, which I got wrong on the test. I have been told the question was fixed, but I was not given credit for the missed question, which I felt was unfair. This was a quick and convenient way to update my certification, but I am disappointed by the fact that the test question was wrong and I was not given the credit.
FiTOUR® Worksite Health and Wellness Coordinator Certification
Not what I expected
Posted June 18, 2019 by Michelle from PA
Being a corporate fitness site coordinator for the past six years, I took this course in the hopes of gaining some ideas of actually programs to utilize in the workplace. I didn't expect it to be based on gathering statistics and marketing. Also, there were numerous grammar/spelling errors.
Core & Functional Fitness Certification

Wasn’t quite what I was expecting but it was still good and offers good info
Aqua Certification Primary
Inexpensive but very dated(revised in 2007)
Posted April 14, 2019 by Beverley Burke.
Inexpensive but very dated (revised in 2007) however, I was able to recieve an Aqua certification in 1 day
Posted October 8, 2018 by Jett
As an Educator with a Master's Degree in Teaching, I'm disappointed by the changes made in your online re-certification Exam material for reviewing. The material isn't detailed in a way that teaches to the exam. A handful of the EXACT answers were only provided in the material/texts that I originally purchased years ago. I'll be sure to get those books out the next time I have to take the re-cert. But hopefully by then, the review material will have been updated to better meet the objectives of the exam.
Posted February 24, 2018 by JE from IL
I found it a little distracting when watching the videos that people walked through the video when you were taping, that splashing noises could be heard or a class was going on when you taped, and some kind of maintenance work was being done while you were taping, which made it hard to hear you. I would also like to correct some of your terminology. A hop is performed on one foot, but a jump is performed on two feet. So, the skill of bunny hop is correct, but the double bunny hop is actually a jump. Also, when you talked about lower back flexibility, you said that a sit and reach box could be used, or a tape measure on the floor could be used. Test qualifications for safely testing lower back flexibility have changed since 2003. Please update your video to coincide with the latest test measurements for this skill, or don't even mention how it is tested. Finally, is sagital spelled with one "t" or two "t's"? It is spelled both ways.
Personal Training Certification PRIMARY
personal trainer renewal
Posted February 7, 2019 by Personal Trainer by Eleanor
I took the renewal on line, missed one, disappointed that i couldn't see which one it was.
Review exam incorrect answers
Posted April 22, 2018 by John Paquet, Independent Professional Fitness Instructor
I feel part of the learning process is the ability to review incorrect answers. Unfortunately one can't do this. Additionally would rather see more practical information in the course rather than the basic science of how muscle works. A pretest would also help as other professional agencies do such as AFAA, ACE.
Posted July 27, 2017 by Fitness T, Temecula, CA
Very pleased with the exam! The actual certificate looks very generic and is a disappointment.
Group Fitness Certification Advanced
Posted November 28, 2018 by Debbie R
The course was good. One thing that bothered me was the instructor gave way too much instruction telling us, "now we will do this" for every exercise instead of keeping the instruction to a minimum.
Posted June 23, 2018 by Teresa
I really like participating in your programs. The only real problem I have with the testing is not being informed of the which questions I missed so that I can go back and study them to know the material better. I want to be the best instructor I can. In order to do that I need to know what I need to study more. At the end of the testing there should be a list of the questions I missed so that I can study them again.
Myofascial Release Foam Roller Certification Primary
Worthwhile course but....
Posted September 15, 2018 by Carol Walsh from Ontario
While the course itself was good, the instructional videos were not worth watching unless you have problems reading. Nothing else was added so for me they were quite disappointing.
good information but the presenter ....
Posted August 9, 2018 by Tracey
It was annoying watching the presenter's eye gaze continuously wander off and read off of something. Also, dragging her voice after 3 or 4 words and then at the end of sentences got really annoying. Seems petty but after 14 videos and over 2 hours - ugh! I almost stopped the videos and just read the manual.
Correct answers to missed results, and Printing out certificates
Posted April 15, 2018 by Carolyn Haines
It would be nice to know the answers to the questions I got wrong. Helps in learning. Also I could not figure out a way to print out the certificate to give to my employers. I finally figured out a way but it is not in the order on the certificate that is shown and don't know if it will be accepted by my work. There should be a very easy way to print out the certificate.
This was a good course with a lot of information.
Posted March 20, 2018 by Marla- fitness instructor from Chicago
This is an in depth look at Myofascial Release. The information is presented well. I liked the organization of the study guide as well as the videos. The exam was not at all organized. This course takes many hours to complete. Their are fourteen chapters and fourteen videos to watch. I think the CECs should be higher for the amount of time spent learning the material.
Confusing but informative
Posted February 16, 2018 by Christina White, NASM CPT, Florida
Overall it wasn't terrible, however it was confusing at points in the material as some of the review questions were not always clear or didn't seem to match the material. When I have both the material and the review questions in front of me and there is no clear answer to a question, it makes it difficult to know if there really is a clear answer when one isn't in the reading. I think there needs to be a review of the material before it is available for purchase as a certification course or maybe answers should be provided as a clear way of understanding the material. Even if it's at an added cost. My 2nd issue is that the videos are of no help as the presenter is only reading the material word for word as I sit here and read along with her. It would be helpful if more answers to the questions that are in the review were in the videos provided. The test was pretty streamline to the material and I will be using the material when I preform my own foam rolling on myself as well as with my clients as needed.
Posted January 19, 2018 by Brinajo
I love the information that I learned in this certification, however on the study material, I feel that some of the wording was confusing, and could have been laid out a little better. My biggest problem with the certification was the testing. Each question being on its own page took forever, and in order to go back to a page say 5 back would have been much easier if there was a scroll of all of the pages instead of 3 to 5 at a time. I had clicked the end of test question to find out how many more questions there were and it took me at least 5 mins. to scroll back to where I was. I also found it odd that there are no CE credits for the certification. Its continued education so should be counted. The information was good to learn though, and all in all Im happy I did it, and can share it with all of my clients.
Posted October 8, 2017 by Lori De Marco, CMT, PT, MMACS, YogaFit Instructor
The videos were pretty well done. She knew the information well though you could see she was ready the TelePrompter. I've done a number of Certification programs, paid a lot of money for some that were not as well done. Thank you.
FiTOUR® Kettlebell Training Certification
Needs to be edited more!!!!
Posted April 18, 2018 by Jane from Ab-solute Fitness
I think to improve the course and test consider either a dvd or online video link examples of the exercises. Also whoever typed up the test should go over it. On one of the questions I believe it was a clean and a press were interchanged. It was common mistakes but the wrong exercise was listed. Also some type os. Otherwise I learned a lot about KB training. I practiced while reading the exercises.
