Certificate III & IV



We pride ourselves on being and remaining Melbourne’s Elite Strength & Conditioning Coaches. For a decade we have been applying the science and evidence of exercise, physiology and nutrition in our practice with our clients training and diet to help them achieve their goals. Our Coaches have worked closely with thousands of individuals in this time, and we understand what it takes in order for a new Coach or Personal Trainer to excel in the fitness industry.


Industry Leaders & Experienced Professionals 

We are more than personal trainers. We aim to educate and motivate our clients to improve their mind and body through leading training and nutritional practices. We get results. More than this, we want to have a lasting positive impression and contribution to the fitness industry at large. This is why we are facilitators of Certificate 3 & 4 in Fitness.

We are dedicated to educating the next generation of Personal Trainers and Coaches, and to inspire you to succeed in the industry. We aim to achieve this through offering our comprehensive Certificate 3 & 4 that not only covers the basics course components of the certification, but also affords each student the opportunity to learn from our experienced coaches, extensive resources and education materials and content that will fill in the gaps in knowledge that an ordinary course leaves you with.

We train trainers, and we are pretty good at it.

“Don’t just be another number. The JPS Personal Trainer certification program will ensure you don’t get left behind and are ready and capable to make an impact in the fitness industry.”
