Champions Certifications, formerly COGI Certifications, is a fitness certification provider that seeks to equip personal trainers with all the tools necessary to be effective in the fitness industry. Our mission is to promote the highest standards of service and professionalism in the fitness industry. At our core, the concept of service is integral, both to clients and fellow trainers. We believe in doing business and life “heartily as unto the Lord” (Colossians 3:23). This concept of service is at the heart of business professionalism. It is key to achieving excellence and success as a personal trainer.
Champions Personal Trainer Certification Program
The Champions Personal Trainer program is our foundational program designed to equip entry-level trainers with the necessary knowledge, wisdom, and discipline required to create and administer safe and effective physical training programs for individuals of varying populations. It covers the fundamentals of anatomy and physiology concerning personal training, the basics of nutrition, psychology and mindset, program design, and injury management. While this program is quite comprehensive in its information, it is also a stepping stone for further fitness education.
Champions Certifications is not just a certification body. We offer ongoing support and education to all students and certified trainers. As a paying member, certified trainers can access premade workouts, which serve various purposes like personal workout sessions, last-minute programming ideas for clients, or even homework or travel workouts. Biweekly Champions newsletters are a point of communication and support for personal trainers. These newsletters may cover business professionalism, continuing education or professional development opportunities, helpful reminders, or challenges to keep training sessions fresh and exciting for the clientele, and more.
Champions Certified Personal Trainers love the support they receive from Champions Certifications. Here is what Champions Certified Personal Trainer and Motocross Coach, Gavin Gracyk, had to say:
"Champions Certifications has impacted my life with great relationships with the wonderful people who make up this program. The right relationships are key! These people encourage me, pray with me, and push me to be my best. However, that is not all that they do. Champions Certifications is giving me the resources and support I need to keep learning and coaching at my best."
Champions Certifications is more than a name or certification provider. It's an embodiment of the characteristics of a true champion. We all know the stories of the underdogs who kept their heads down and kept working until their goal was accomplished. This requires diligence, dedication, and sacrifice. A true Champion does not complain when faced with an obstacle but instead rises to the occasion and gets to work.
That's what it means to be a champion.
At Champions Certifications, we are committed to seeing you achieve your goals as a personal trainer. Join us and be a part of the Champions team!
