The American Fitness and Nutrition Academy exists to educate and vocationally prepare a premiere workforce of fitness, nutrition, and allied healthcare practitioners, to support the employment efforts and business pursuits of these same practitioners, and to advance the nationally critical priority of health, fitness, and nutrition awareness through industry outreach and community education activities.
AFNA's hands-on client trainer program and fitness employer outreach pack a solid one-two punch. Learn by doing with our excellent instructors and build relationships with fellow fitness trainers and professionals that extend well beyond your graduation date.
Your success is our team effort. Our alignment with the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and professional partnership with Yoga Alliance ensure your access to the latest, cutting edge science and curriculum.
Our instructors are carefully selected and trained to provide an outstanding vocational experience. But beyond their years of fitness industry experience and impressive academic credentials, all are invested in the professional development of each and every AFNA student.
The Los Angeles Metropolitan Area is the international epicenter of Personal Training.
