Fitness Institute International
  • Graduation

    Upon successful completion of all six courses (360 hours of instruction), candidates attend an annual graduation and awards ceremony during which time they come across the stage to be formally presented with their Certified Personal Training Specialist (CPTS) certificates of course completion. Additionally, the ceremony is highlighted with awards presented to outstanding South Florida honorees who have distinguished themselves in the operation of professional fitness facilities and the conduct of exemplary personal training. A keynote address is offered by a high profile figure such as a motivational speaker, a fitness oriented physician or a world class athlete (i.e. Al Oerter, the only Olympian to win 4 Gold Medals in the same event and set a record each time). Upon completion of the ceremony, graduates along with their families and friends are invited to attend a fun and invigorating reception with food, refreshments and dancing.
