Our Instructors

Our Edmonton Personal Fitness Training course instructors are all practicing personal trainers
Not only do our students get to learn the extensive theory behind personal training, and put it all into practice, they also get to learn from the best professionals in the city, all of who are also practicing personal trainers. Our Personal Fitness Trainer instructors bring into the classroom, stories and experiences from their day-to-day lives as personal trainers. Our instructors are up to date on all the current industry trends, events, certifications and news.
This is somewhat uncommon for traditional academia, as many professors are often disconnected from the actual professions that their students will be pursuing. If you’d like to sit in on one of our classes and meet our instructors, as well as our students, we invite you to do so. To set up a visit at our Edmonton campus, please call 780-425-0933 or email info@elevatedlearningacademy.com.

We look forward to hearing from you!

A Career with High Demand...

Demand for Personal Fitness Trainers is constantly increasing. Media attention, and general awareness of such diseases as obesity, diabetes, and angina, are just some of the reasons people are becoming more conscious of their health.
Another is the attention paid to popular entertainment shows like The Last 10 Lbs. and The Biggest Loser, both of which draw millions of viewers, and focus those viewers attention to the benefits and results that exercise can bring.

Finally, there’s been a great shift in our demographics, with a large majority of our population ageing. This ageing population has a large disposable income, is extremely interested in health and wellness, and is newly acquiring more free time to devote to it. All of this creates great opportunities for fitness facilities, and Personal Fitness Trainers alike.

Our students don’t just graduate with a Diploma in Personal Fitness Training, they also receive an internationally recognized Personal Fitness Training Certification through the American Council on Exercise as well as their CPR/AED Certification through the Canadian Red Cross.
Preparations and examinations for these additional certifications are included in the curriculum, course length, and cost. So no additional time or money need be spent to acquire them.

There’s no other Personal Fitness Trainer course in Alberta that includes these additional certifications within its’ classes. Other schools require that students spend extra time and money obtaining additional certifications prior to them being able to start their careers in the Fitness Industry...our Personal Fitness Trainer Course is all inclusive!

I just finished and graduated in Diploma for Personal Fitness Trainer. I have learned so much and my brain got full knowledge from the best instructors in school. Crystal, Jarred and Leah are really the best! They have established credibility in their knowledge and they really care about the students. The excellence in their teaching styles have different strokes but have the same goal, and that is the CARE to share their knowledge to us and make us to become the excellent fitness professional.For those who are still thinking about starting a fitness career, this school is my HIGHLY recommended for your guys. Your tuition fee is all worth it. You will not be disappointed and you will finish this school with a smile in your heart and full of knowledge in your brain and you will become successful!

Took the personal trainer course and it was easily the best educational experience I've had by far. The instructors are unreal and just a fountain of knowledge. I would do it all over again if I could. If you're considering your options for any certifications they offer just pick ELA, you wont be disappointed.

I was enrolled (and completed) the personal fitness trainer program. It's also worth noting that I'm a massage therapist, with a strong knowledge of muscles and their movement, and I still found this program challenging. But it's also worth it.The instructors genuinely want to see people succeed, both in the program and out in the real world, and although the course requires you to be quite self-driven, they will provide you with the resources and assistance where able to ensure you succeed.I would also like to point out, ensure you can structure a healthy work/school/life balance before enrolling. It'll help a lot. :)

I cannot recommend working with ELA enough! I spoke to one of their classes and received a warm welcome, great questions, and lots of interest for a practicum. I was impressed with their level of professionalism but also "real" nature and honesty around the personal training industry.From the class, I was able to work with a practicum student and loved how she was always ready to watch, interact, and even take over on the spot. I appreciated her enthusiasm, willingness to learn, and great people skills - she made people at ease and jumped right into their sessions with them.I'm grateful for a fun experience with ELA and would recommend connecting with them for any personal trainer/business owner in the fitness industry.

After much research I came across Elevated Learning Academy. I decided to enroll in the Personal Fitness Teainer Diploma program and I am so glad I did. The instructors, Leah and Daniel were extremely knowledgeable and prepared me for the industry I was entering into. I would recommend anyone interested in becoming certified to check them out. You get the practical work along with the textbook work!
