    One of the best decisions in my life! I had the opportunity to learn in my mother tongue Assamese. No other course gives this option. The practical workshops including client motivation techniques made me more aware of my responsibilities as a trainer. It has really opened a lot of doors for me in the fitness industry

    I completed the CCPFT in 2017 April .. I appreciate the post-enrollment mentoring by Mr. Dilip Heble. Thanks to his HONEST FRANK advice I have today settled as a Fitness Trainer in Chennai with an income which I never thought I could earn just 2 years ago. Your advice and the knowledge imparted in the CCPFT is a Godsend. Thank you!
