Experience with FITM
Experience with FiT Malaysia
I have experienced a lot of things in my fitness career, both as a trainer of clients and a trainer of aspiring trainers.
Going to FIT to learn CSCS under the wise tutelage of Cameron and Jerrican was great. The FIT experience has ignited my passion to keep learning and applying to be better at my craft.
Like the adage that goes “you have 2 eyes, 2 ears, a pair of arms and legs and 1 mouth” Use it in that order and keep learning !Sarge Simran Latiff (Original Bootcamp Malaysia), FiT Student

Why is Personal Training a Rewarding Career?
A few years back, I was just a regular gym-goer and people in my gym tend to ask me for advisces when they see me train.
The idea of becoming a personal trainer eventually came to me. I’ve had no clue where to begin, until I took the ACE Personal Trainer course. It brought my personal training skills to a whole new level.
I am now more confident to meet new clients, design better programs and get them to train in a safe and effective way.Jordan Yeoh (Celebrity Personal Trainer, FiT Malaysia, FiT Student)
Earlier this year, I took the above weekend course through Fit Malaysia. The course bills itself as a preparation for the ACE personal training certification, but I found it to be much more than that. In the 60 hours (spread over 6 weekends), we followed the well-developed material through in-class and practical sessions in a gym. Instruction was clear and well-balanced. We even got to work out during class! By the end I felt not only ready for the exam, but ready to create personalized goal-oriented exercise programs for both myself and others.
I am now CPR certified and have a great introduction to the fitness industry. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in exercise, work as a fitness professional, or (as for me) a peek into a new career. Contact Faud for more details firstname.lastname@example.org. There are sixteen spots available, and if you happen to nab one, please tell them Penang Momma, Laurel Stelzer, sent you!Laurel Stelzer (Penang Momma)
Coming from a Corporate IT background for over 8 years, today I am doing something I REALLY love doing – which makes work no longer seem like work anymore.
Every day, I put my clothes on, head out of home, and it doesn’t feel like a job. This was the best career decision ever for me as I continue to impact the lives of people all around me.Noel Chelliah (Founder, Daily Muscle Transformation Camp, FiT Student)
There is pride in making a change in people’s life as an ACE certified Personal Trainer. Thank you FIT for making it happen!Tavanesh (Winner of Men’s Health Most Refined & Defined 2010, FiT Student, Founder of Jumpstart Fitness)
As personal trainers, we make incredible differences in clients lives by providing them with information and support. It’s amazing to be a part of a person’s journey to physical fitness.
This is a career where you leave positive and lasting impression on everyone you work with. Lastly it is rewarding when clients achieve their result and we get paid doing what we love!!Jason Loh (Club Manager, Gorgeous Fitness, FiT Student)
Personal Training is rewarding because it gives me a sense of personal satisfaction when I coach, guide and see my clients through their individual training journeys and I watch and guide them transition from zero to hero in their quest for optimal fitness. How can that not be rewarding!

Personal Training is a rewarding career because… I’ll be able to do what I love most and earn from it, anytime and anywhere, not only financially but the most importantly is the satisfaction in helping people to live in healthy ways. Being able to be part of another person’s goal and witness it to materialize in front of my eyes is definitely priceless.
This career will indirectly allow me to train while training other people; therefore I can stay in shape and be a good role model at the same time. And, since the time is so flexible, I can work around my personal schedule and do other things without hustle. A very rewarding career I must say.Mohd Shahril Kaider (Personal Trainer, FiT Student)
To be able to share my clients’ journey in becoming stronger, fitter, healthier, happier, and better at their workouts has got to be the most rewarding part of being a personal trainer. The ACE certification has definitely armed me with the right fundamentals to guide my clients safely towards their fitness goals.
The whole experience of empowering my clients with the essential knowledge to help them focus on their goals, and to instil exercise as a habit makes personal training an even more worthwhile career.Phang Eve Lyn (Personal Trainer, FiT Student)
PT is a rewarding career because I am creating positive impact to people’s daily lifestyle. Being ACE certified has equipped me with a systematic approach to train and educate clients in many aspects of wellness – from exercise to general health and nutrition guidelines. My greatest satisfaction is seeing clients successful.Penny Ang (Personal Trainer, FiT Student)
I entered fit Malaysia to get ace personal trainer cert a few months back. Since then I have worked as a personal trainer for close to three months now. Most of my clients stay in the Ipoh area. Ranging from young to elder, I have had ample sessions with them. Through my experience I believe I have come through various level of fitness. To train these clients I have to gather all sorts of knowledge regarding fitness that I have used myself.
To put things into perspective, personal trainers can be made into a proper career, and even help a lot of people realize the proper way to achieve their fitness goals. Mainly, personal trainers can make a lot of money if he/she is committed. ACE certification helps me to break ground with my employer helping recognize my knowledge and skills. Thank you and i wish all the best to fit Malaysia and everyone in the fitness industry.Zahrul Hafizan (Personal Trainer, FiT Student)
I remember once, there’s a 50 years old uncle walked up to me and say: “Jian, I have lost 8kgs because of you, my blood pressure and cholesterol all went down, I really thank you so much.” That uncle is not my client, he’s a member in my gym but I had taught him few exercises and few types of cardio when he first joined, I did not sign him up. But that moment I felt much appreciated, deep down bottom from my heart. It’s not the monetary value that matters, but it’s the sincerity of the member saying thank you to me.
That makes Personal Training such a rewarding career for me. Certainly being an ACE certified trainer has equipped me with scientifically proven knowledge but most importantly, learning in the class under instructor “Key” & “Jerrican”, sharing their knowledge with us is ten times more valuable than being certified.Zeann (Personal Trainer, FiT Student)
Personal training is a rewarding career because we can change a person’s life in a training session than thousand words in an entire lifeRosa Isela (Personal Trainer, FiT Student)
Everybody come to gym and will never miss a goal they would like to achieve,”I want to be healthy!”. HEALTHY= EAT+EXERCISE+SLEEP. And my job is to help people love EXERCISE. From LOSE WEIGHT,GAIN MUSCLE,LOOKING GOOD, to NO PAIN, FEEL GOOD,and HAPPY!!! How to make those people i meet, to be motivate and love exercise for life time, how to help them fix their joint problem and prevent further harm, is my new goal as a PT. ACE is my stepstone to move on my passion, learn the basic as a personal trainer.
Designing training program getting more and more unique when i met different type of people. Exercise is like alphabet, two or more alphabet will be a words, more words will be a sentence, and the meaning keep on changing while the position change. There has no one training program suit all,different people make me think more to find a suitable way of exercise for them. Looking forward to learn more!Chu Ai Sean (Personal Trainer, FiT Student)

How do Continuing Education Courses help you?
TWIST Sport Conditioning Workshop
I find this workshop very engaging. This is more of a sports performance training but the facilitator, Key, showed us that this TWIST Sport Conditioning can be used not only for athletes but for anyone. It is fun and will totally burn a lot of calories doing it. Imagine doing squats but on The Smart Board™. It is one of the equipment used in the Dynamic Balance module. Basically, a balance board. It will engage more on your core and not forgetting the balance component.
It is something new for me. You need very high energy to do coach this and also to perform this exercise. I know my clients would love this.Adam (Trainer at Celebrity Fitness)

I’ve been coaching swimming for 8 years and I often have clients who ask me about weight loss.

GFIT-Group Fitness Innovative Teaching
For new instructor GFIT is an elementary for them to understand the needs and the margin for the markets. As they will know awareness on the moves they creates which especially those who are doing freestyle classes e.g: bootcamp, TRX, spinning, Hilo, freestyle step.
As some of free style instructor for might lack of the knowledge on coaching and also the regression and progression for the movements.
For experince instructors: is a good revision on the knowledge at the while we know. As sometimes we might overlook what’s the final benefit we wants to give to members.Benson (An experienced group fitness instructor)
GFIT-Group Fitness Innovative Teaching
“In one word, GFIT was AMAZING!!”
“For a newbie like me (in terms of GX), I learned a lot from Kim and my fellow classmates (some with years of experience in GX). Which I am grateful.
It also gave me the confidence to pursue my goal of being a GX Instructor (pump fx, here I come!) and made me realize the things that I still need to improve.”Foo Ghani (Participant of GFIT certificate course)
GFIT-Group Fitness Innovative Teaching
“GFIT has obviously given me a better insight of what to expect as a group fitness instructor. It has given me the head-start as it covers up the essential elements of WHAT-I-NEED-TO-KNOW. In GFIT, i have learnt how to plan and conduct classes in a more systematic way and how music plays an important role in a workout class.
I would recommend this to my friends because i never though it could be that fun and challenging. I am pretty sure one would get something useful from this course.”Fong Yi (Participant of GFIT certificate course, FiT Student)
Fitness Centre Management Workshop
Its an invaluable course for would be owners of a fitness centres and management staff.
The sharing of best practices is the most valuable aspect of the course from industry experts. If only I took this course way earlier!Choo Chung Siang (Manager of Gym Box, Kuching)
