The Reason for AFTA?

There are many health facilities and exercise instructors serving the fitness community across the United States, as well as numerous certifying bodies offering health and fitness education. Even with their professional guidance, clients and members are slipping through the cracks of well run facilities by not being fully served.


Most individuals who train at health clubs and gyms face the problem of not having an idea of what is happening to them physically. They most likely have numerous questions, such as:


Where did I physically start from?

Is my training program working?

What’s my fitness level?

What’s my strength or aerobic capacity?


Another problem is most individuals don’t get recognition for their fitness, strength, and physique pursuits. There are many strength events, road races, and fitness competitions, but they only serve an elite few.


There needs to be an avenue for individuals to receive recognition for their fitness development without having to get up on stage or enter a large athletic arena. Dedicated exercise professionals want to be at the forefront of the latest techniques, workout systems, and exercise equipment to improve client performance, attract new clients, increase retention, and create new revenue. Dedicated exercisers want to assess their progress in their physical training and to set health and fitness goals.


AFTA fulfilled these needs.
