CFES Personal Trainer Program – Abbotsford

Personal trainer encouraging muscle man in push ups training

This course is for individuals who want to become Personal Trainers. Whether you want to start your own Personal Training business, or it’s something that you want to do part-time, you’ll be amazed at how much you will learn in this program. You have two of the most experienced Educators in the Fitness Industry teaching you, Brian Justin and Brenda Adams. You won’t find a more passionate and dedicated team anywhere!

Our program includes all your weight training and personal training courses, your practicums, your manuals and your practical evaluations. There are additional fees for your closed book exams ($70 per exam – there are 2 of them) and your CFES membership ($50 per year).

The other thing that makes this program awesome? You get TWO of the best educators in BC, Brian Justin and Brenda Adams. Brian is a professor at the University of the Fraser Valley in the kinesiology department. Brenda is a kinesiologist and Life Coach with a master’s degree in Adult Education. So, these two have the industry knowledge and experience you want to learn from AND they actually get how to teach adults! May sound obvious but there are lots of experts out there who aren’t so great at teaching what they know.


Fitness Theory – If you have not taken this course yet you can take it online through CFES by clicking here. This course must be completed before the first class of the weight training course (cost of the course is $250). Note – if you have completed KPE 160 and 170 from the University of the Fraser Valley you are exempt from this course. You will need to submit your transcripts for verification.

Class dates and times:

We have chosen to run classes during the week as, in our experience, taking courses on weekends, after a full week of work and/or school, is not the best for your actual learning. We know that this means making arrangements at work, however, ensuring the absolute best learning experience possible is our #1 priority.
