The primary reason the IFPA was founded, was to answer a cry for help. Before the IFPA began in July of 1994, before there was an IFPA certification many, many gym owners complained that... "virtually every certified fitness instructor that walked into their gym looking for a job could not properly demonstrate a squat or properly queue a group fitness class or even properly adjust a piece of exercise equipment." The gym owners were looking for a certification that actually tested potential fitness professionals "on what they needed to know in order to conduct safe and effective training programs." To quote one very frustrated Gym Owner: "I don't need instructors with a certification that is simply a worthless academic exercise." He demanded something "different than a certification put together by academicians from the Ivory Towers of Academia that had no practical experience."
IFPA programs answered this cry by recruiting a group of experienced exercise scientists who actually WORK in the fitness industry as athletes, coaches, trainers, chiropractors, physical therapists and sports medicine doctors.
