Over 22,479 graduates have already successfully completed their training at OFA


"I couldn't have chosen a better academy. OFA's learning program is super structured from start to finish and if a lecture at university was too boring, I learned a module from OFA ;).
Thanks to the licenses from OFA, I got a part-time job as a personal trainer at a renowned fitness studio"


"[...] I would like to gain a professional foothold with the training! I did the training because I would like to work in a gym alongside my nutritional science studies and also to further my own training. I will now look into getting a job in a gym and then start working as a trainer. I opted for an online trainer license because it's very flexible and you can do it from home at your own pace."


"Since 2017, no other academy has been an option for me! I am now 58 years old, turned my hobby into a profession 15 years ago and founded a club where I get people moving. I obtained my fitness trainer license at Online Fitness Academy in 2017. During my training, OFA was always available for me and guided me competently through the training. It's the best value for money on the market!"


[...]we simply had the certificate issued in English, because we wanted to have an international license. We are very satisfied. You can learn whenever and for as long as you want. They always help you with questions. Perfect!"
