National Health & Fitness Academy
The 3 Elements of a great Personal Training lifestyle.
The National Health & Fitness Academy certificate III and IV program was the turning point of my life. I was stuck in a job (as a lawyer) that gave me no satisfaction what so ever. The National Health & Fitness Academy program inspired me and kept me motivated about my choice to do what I really wanted to do by becoming a personal trainer. The program was everything and more than I thought it would be and gave me all the essential skills and knowledge that was required to start my new career path. Now I am a Personal Trainer and a group exercise instructor in the industry. I have realised that this program taught me everything to help me become a professional and confident trainer who is now making a massive difference in so many ways to the lives of all my clients. My personal Training career is far more emotionally but also financially rewarding then my other career and I have never looked back once!I would highly recommend Dave Burgis and the National HFA program to any person wanting a new career in the fitness industry and especially to those with the desire to become the best in the business.

The qualifications that you receive may be the same, however the important skills, knowledge and the quality of the education and information will be very different. It’s extremely important to make sure that the education you receive is of the highest quality if you’re wanting to be a personal trainer of the highest quality. Just because an organisation markets itself heavily does not mean that they have a great educational program providing the highest level of education. The coaches, the facility, and the learning techniques for both the theory and practical components are extremely important to the success and development while in the course and of course once you have completed. The aim of the organisation should be that the education you receive should be putting you in front of any other provider. That is our constant goal, to have our graduating students head and shoulders above any other trainer even when first entering the industry.
"I’d like to thank Dave and the National Health & Fitness Academy for helping me into my new career. The course was everything I expected and so much more and I’m so thankful that I decided to become a Personal Trainer and even more thankful that I did the program with the National HFA. After securing my fantastic position at Jetts Fitness, I quickly moved into a management position. I have had the opportunity now to see the skills and knowledge that was taught to me compared to other trainers within the industry and am thankful that I chose to be educated by Dave and the team. The course opened my eyes to what real personal training is all about and gave me everything that I needed to get me to where I wanted to be and become super successful in the industry.
I loved the fact that the course was delivered with a scientific approach, which is backed up by common sense for training “the average person” which of course is 90% of our client base and business. Dave has an unbelievable knowledge base and made the learning process so simple. The ongoing education is also a massive bonus and insures that I will grow in confidence, learn more to reach even greater heights and to help with my team now that I am in a management role. I find that even though I only completed my course recently, I am already mentoring 3 other personal trainers, all who have been in the industry for over 3 years and I am confident in doing so and this is all because of the knowledge Dave gave me. I would highly recommend Dave and the National Health & Fitness Academy and wish you all the best." - Mark Conrad, Jetts Tweed Heads Manager.
