This program allowed me to finally invest in myself, health and well being. Laura and Amanda will empower you through vast knowledge and expertise. Their level of dedication and commitment to their students far exceeded my expectations. They changed my life and I will be forever grateful!

Danielle, Hamilton, ON

The FIT CHICKS Fitness and Nutrition Expert program was an amazing experience! I was too intimidated to go back to university to get a kin. degree, and was then worried that that would not prepare me to become a fitness instructor. As soon as I heard about this program, I became excited and it felt right. The course ran at a great pace, and it was really helpful to be able to watch the classes at your own pace. I could fit all the classes and assignments in to my own schedule and didn't have to worry about falling behind. I HIGHLY recommend this course!

Jenny, Winnipeg, MB

The Fit Chicks crew is a supportive network of women that have developed such a well rounded course, covering fitness, nutrition, wellness, and nutrition. Not only do they provide students with useful information, the practical components give you the confidence to apply what you've learned. They are the biggest cheerleaders for their students success. Love them!

Gina, Toronto, ON

One of the best decisions I've made about looking into a new career path was taking the Fit Chicks Fitness Nutrition Expert Program. They made this program fully packed of information but also made it trouble-free so that I was still able to do my full time job. I looked forward to our evening classes and they were always there to answer any questions in a fast manner.They helped me clarify that I made the right decision!"
