The Online Trainer Academy certification and mentorship is the only program for fitness professionals where results like these are typical:
“I’ve trained 140 clients and earned an extra $30,000 in one year of online training—and I did it while caring for my mother following her fourth heart surgery. After she recovered, I treated my husband and kids to a three-month trip through Europe.“
Arpita Boyd (India) | mindandbodypt.com
“With the extra few thousand each month I’m able to work less and have more time with my son. I spend about 10 hours a week training in-home, and 5 hours of training online. That’s it. I’m like a stay-at-home dad.”
Malcom Wilson (USA) | fb.com/Malcolmw88
“Sat out on the patio this morning, drank my coffee, wrote my client’s programs, and I’m good and I’ve made my money for the day. I can do that anywhere.”
Nikki Martino (USA) | fb.com/niki.martino.9

We know that in health and fitness, there’s no “magic pill”, but there are predictable ways to lose fat, gain muscle, increase endurance, and look and feel our best. The same is true for starting and growing your online fitness business.

Here’s what you’ll learn in the Online Trainer Academy:

WHAT IT TAKES TO HAVE
CLIENTS IN 90 DAYS
The Online Trainer Academy won’t make you a millionaire overnight (if anyone tries to sell you something that will — RUN). But it will help you get or grow your business to a guaranteed minimum of 5 clients.
There are no deadlines to complete the course and you have lifetime access. So if you’re working a full time job (or you’re a full time parent) — you can go at your own pace.
That said, if you’re ready to make a rapid change and finish the course in the next 8-12 weeks, you can expect to invest 3–5 hours each week on the program. Here’s how a typical study session might look:
Step 1. Read a chapter in the textbook (each chapter takes 20-40 mins)
Step 2. Watch a corresponding video in the online portal (5-7 mins)
Step 3. Complete a worksheet assignment (10-15 mins)
Step 4. Reach out to a mentor and get a live one-on-one session to break through any barriers or questions.
Each section of the course is immediately applicable, so no matter how much time you’re able to dedicate, you’ll start seeing the rewards.
Many of our students are shocked at how quickly they make back their investment.
“I am about halfway through and really only started implementing everything hard last week. I already have five clients paying me $400/month. And the best part is that these are people whose lives I can REALLY impact, that truly need my help.”
Matthew Clines (USA) | IG.com/mattclines
“I’m making enough extra every month that I don’t have to worry about my bills.” – Zachary Wayne Springer
Most of our students aren’t looking to buy yachts or lamborghini’s when they join. Instead they want enough time, money, and freedom to:
Buy nice dinners for friends and loved ones — without worrying about the bill.
Go on guilt-free vacations.
Feel confident quitting unfulfilling jobs.
Save money each month without having to “cut back”.
This is what we call a “Freedom number” or “freedom goal”. It’s the realistic number, that gives you the freedom to add security, joy, and options back into your life. And it’s a lot closer and more realistic than you might think.
Thomas Madden (USA) | satellitefit.com
“My freedom goal was to have enough money in the bank to not be worried about going out to dinner and having to keep the bill under $50. My freedom goal was to spend Christmas with my family without worrying about travel expenses and gift buying. My freedom goal was to get enough clients to bring on another coach. Full disclosure – I am 50% through the course, and I have accomplished all of that.”
WHAT GRADUATES SAY ABOUT
THEIR NEW FOUND FREEDOM:
“It’s not just convenient and affordable for our clients but also it allows for trainers like me to still be able to do what we love whilst raising a family at the same time. I work around my kids, what more could I ask for!“
Yusra Eshaq (UK) | fitshatzi.com
“OTA helped me realize I can help change lives while making more money than I ever dreamed of. Today I work with over 150 clients while traveling the world with my girlfriend.”
Marc-André Seers (Canada) | fb.com/marcandre.seers.9
“It works! You just have to get a system in place and do the work. Even though I’m a full-time teacher, I made over $500 of extra income last month.”
Sue Kauffman (USA) | exercise-fitness-nutrition.com
“A few months after completing OTA, not only am I on track to double my gross revenue, I have also fully replaced the gym’s membership revenue with online training. Now I have the opportunity to keep the studio and not stress about the overhead or I can sell the property and not be forced to get pennies on the $$. That is a huge freedom for me and my family!!“
Devon Brown (USA) | fb.com/changeyourfitness
When you join the Online Trainer Academy, results like these aren’t just possible, they’re predictable.
WHO THE PROGRAM IS FOR
Built for trainers, fitness professionals, gym owners, and health and wellness coaches, you’ll be able to start (or grow) your online business if you already:
Are certified as a trainer, coach, instructor, or nutrition coach: We’ve seen successful students who have ranged from group fitness instructors, to powerlifting coaches, running instructors, to nutrition consultants.
Have trained clients and are comfortable writing programming and delivering results.
Are comfortable using basic internet-based technology like Google Drive, email, video calls, etc.
Here’s what you don’t need in order to start:
You don’t need a large audience (we’ll show you how to build one).
You don’t need a niche or specialty market (we’ll help you find it).
You don’t need an LLC or business license (we’ll give you resources for what to do).
You don’t need to know exactly what you want to offer yet (we’ll help you figure it out).
You don’t need a website (we’ll tell you what to build).
“Oh man, before OTA, I had
literally nothing and no idea
where to start. It’s given me a
solid framework to continue
improving upon.” – Kerri Grace
You’ve got an important decision to make: Keep building someone else’s dream—or start building your own.
Under the Old Way, trainers keep about 35% of everything they make. 65% goes to the gym, and overhead expenses. Under the New Way, you keep up to 75-80% of what you make and only spend about 5% on overhead.
