The certification program at Acceleration Performance gave me the opportunity to understand the needs of being a Strength and Fat Loss Coach. Understanding program and overall fitness is one thing but at Acceleration Performance the knowledge learnt away from the books can’t be compared to any other certification program. You don’t only learn how to coach your clients but how to understand them personally and which practices will determine their best result. Being a Strength and Fat Loss Coach isn’t only about the book smarts, at Acceleration Performance they teach you how to best represent yourself and how to best represent your client. I highly recommend taking the APCC program.

As a young strength coach, I am always seeking out new information regarding athletic performance.  The Acceleration Performance personal training certification was recommended to me via a friend who has been a longstanding client of theirs for 8 years and has had nothing but great things to say about the staff and the facility at Acceleration Performance.  Taking the certification at AP has been very beneficial to both me and my clients.  Sherwin and Guy have opened my eyes to so much great information and their open, fun and welcoming atmosphere can be mirrored by no other gym in this city.  I would urge anyone that takes their job in the fitness industry seriously, to take this course as it has been one of the best decisions of my career.

Sofia Habity, APCC, Stregnth and Fat loss Coach


The AP certification course was an amazing opportunity to challenge myself as a fitness trainer.  It offered me an advanced look at functional strength training and gave me the tools and knowledge to improve on many different levels.  Online and offline communication was very smooth with Sherwin throughout the certification process, answering all questions the group had and also following up with each of us to review performance and answer our questions.  Sherwin also provided additional modules to supplement our Manual.  

The practical Part was an amazing opportunity to get hands on experience with clients which is very important and that many online courses simply neglect and don't require. 

 I am very happy I enrolled in a course that involves not only strength training but also give enough focus on the importance of functional training, nutrition and covers also the business side of training.  I am looking forward to take part of other Acceleration Performance courses.
