SUF – CPT

OCT 1ST 2023

Show Up Fitness Cpt is the World's Best Fitness Certification

BY NOW YOU'VE HEARD THE NEWS, SHOW UP FITNESS CPT HAS PARTNERED WITH LIFE TIME FITNESS AND THEIR 166-GYMS.

As of Oct 1st 2023, Show Up Fitness CPT has been certifying personal trainers for over 15-months & we now have certified #110 trainers! Why is this important? We can now start the process for accreditation via the NCCA / ICE. The application process can still take over 24-months and will cost us over $20,000 (which we would have loved to give back to science, but in order to play the game, you need the accreditation.) In our last in-person SUF-CPT (online as well) we had 8-trainers get hired at Equinox. The SUF-CPT can get you hired at Equinox and Life Time Fitness, LA Fitness, Crunch and 24-Hour (smaller gyms and group classes like F45 and OTF will require a textbook certification like NASM or ACE.) If you want to start your online training business, start your own gym or garage or train independent, SUF-CPT is the cheapest certification (as of *Oct 2023) and all you need is to get your limited liability insurance here!)

*The material for the SUF-CPT is online with power points and on-demand videos. Classes are LIVE daily then recorded for on demand. The cost per month is $100 and the SUF-CPT test is $199 to sit in front of a panel of coaches to complete the test within 15-minutes. The average trainer completes the SUF-CPT within two months and then moves into Level 2 for business development (SUF-OC), nutrition (SUF-NC) and mentorship (SUF-MP.)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

$399 for two months access to the online / live content & to test in front of the panel. Interns who complete the 2-month internship program in Los Angeles & San Diego get 1 attempt for free.

HOW MUCH is the retest?

WHY SHOULD I BECOME A SHOW UP FITNESS CPT?

90% of textbook trainers (NASM, ACE, ISSA, NSCA, ACSM, LEVEL 2-3 in the UK) quit within 12-months (18-months in the UK.) Trainers who go through an internship to get their CPT are significantly better off as they build on the THREE most important skills for trainers: BUSINESS, TRADE & PEOPLE skills. Having these skills improves confidence, knowledge and the ability to ask questions to fitness professionals will place you in the elite category of trainers.

WHat if i already have a certification?

Can you name the 17-muscle of the shoulder? 20-lower body muscles? Are you able to design a workout on the spot for fat loss or hypertrophy? If you want to train for Show Up Fitness, you have to test for your level 1 SUF-CPT.

WHERE IS THE BEST INSURANCE TO GET AFTER I GET MY LEVEL 1?

K & K insurance has the best and most reasonable personal training insurance.

What is level 2?
