The Personal Trainer Academy at Lowry in Denver, part of Community College of Aurora in Colorado

Welcome to the Personal Trainer Academy
Due to dramatic increases in healthcare costs and rising obesity rates, Personal Training is one of the fastest growing industries in America. While it may be true that you can become "certified" in a weekend course, most individuals, who truly succeed, possess a strong working knowledge of exercise science that can only be achieved by being immersed in a structured academy that uses the GOLD STANDARD of excellence -- the American Council on Exercise's (ACE) standards.

Getting Started:  For more information regarding career options, salary ranges, educational opportunities, and physical and sensory requirements for working as a personal trainer, please see CCA's Personal Trainer Plan of Study.       Apply today!
