Fitness Phenomena Weekend

(Friday night, all day Saturday and Sunday)
Get one, two or more Amazing presenters in fitness education (Greg Sims, Gay Gasper, Darise Dee Barron, Tony Stiller – just to name a few) to provide an entire weekend of phenomenal certifications and training.

Two-Day Certification and CEC Workshops

(Saturday and Sunday)
Choose your Saturday certification(s) and we’ll help put together your Sunday continuing education that complements the day before…or whatever types of classes that you feel are best for you and your staff.  Example: Saturday – Group Fitness Leader Primary Certification *Sunday – A variety of one/two hour choreography classes.

Certification Weekend

Designed for clubs and fitness professionals who want to add punch to their qualifications and credibility by providing as many Certifications as possible in a 1, 2, or 3 day event.

C.E.O. (Continuing Education Only)

Design a weekend of multiple Continuing Education “Only” programs.  This requires more attendees but can be fun and educational.

Chain Event

If your facility is part of a chain and you want extended training at various facilities, we can arrange for an IFTA trainer to visit differing sites for up to five days of training within a 200 mile radius for certifications and education.

Savings or Package bundles

If you include at least 1 IFTA Certification in the mix we will offer a package bundle or Savings price, this is the “discounted” way to get credits for less money. If you host 2 Certifications in the same weekend we will offer a Savings price if people register for both. Textbooks / study material prices are always separated from any Savings bundle unless advertised otherwise.

*Basic Requirements: We always hope for a minimum of 10 registrations for certifications and 15 persons for continuing education workshop classes.  IFTA will advertise to your area promoting the event – your help with promoting among staff and area facilities is greatly appreciated. If you have a hotel agreement with your facility or provide hotel arrangements for our presenter(s) that is one way to help keep the event on the calendar even if the registration numbers are not what we had hoped.

Hosting an event is a great way to advertise your facility to your area…it is impressive to bring in presenters for an event. Most people want to be a part of a facility / gym that has IFTA trained and Certified instructors!
