Personal Trainer

Thomas Kacerik JPF“While attending QVCC I had heard that they had an opportunity to take a personal trainer course. I have always been a fitness enthusiast so I signed up to take Josh Pratt’s class. The class was engaging and challenging, I learned a lot and the hands on experience at Josh’s gym and the course load was very helpful. I began training afterwards and have gone on to get other certifications that the class had prepared me perfectly for.

I now work full time as a trainer and actually train at JPF (Josh’s gym) every day. The education from that class has been invaluable and life-changing for me. I would encourage anyone who is passionate about fitness and helping people to take this class.”
