‘’I was so proud when I received my certificates for Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer after only 6 short weeks! You won’t find another course like the one from Elite Academy.The Academy is only two years old and has an incredible reputation! ! Obviously there’s a reason why, the provided material delivers all the information you need to start with in your new career and enables you to be distinguished from all the other trainers out there from the first day you start working! The coaches are world class level with years of practice in the fitness industry. To teach everything from perfect technique to sales and marketing in 6 weeks to people with zero knowledge about the topic, now that is something incredible!‘’
Yana Nova
‘’Fantastic place to start my journey in the Fitness Industry, Highly commended! A great platform for real professionals and those who love this industry.’’ 
Sophie Kavanagh
‘’The Elite staff have put together an incredible curriculum in key areas such as anatomy & physiology, myofascial release, mobility, flexibility, resistance training, conditioning, and nutrition. The curriculum presented is well researched and supported by valid scientific studies ! As a veteran school teacher in America, what I most admired about the Elite instructors is that they were beyond book smart and were dedicated practitioners of fitness and all aspects of a healthy lifestyle. Based on a wealth of first hand experience, the instructors at Elite have a keen eye when guiding gym instructors and personal trainers toward mastery in exercise technique and the key teaching points needed to train clients. If you are in a tough legal bind, you want a lawyer who understands the law and can best defend you. No matter what type of service you are seeking, you surely want a consummate professional. You want the best! The staff at Elite Fitness and Performance Academy are consummate professionals. They are the best! ’ 
Shane McCracken
‘’I thought I knew my fitness until I did the course at Elite. I always went home full of new inspiring knowledge . I was talking to Sean on the phone recently in regards to developing my business as a fitness professional. The advice he gave me in the half hour free phone call was mind blowing!I would advise anyone who is looking to get into the fitness industry or just further their learning to get into Elite. Sean and his team have the future of fitness education in their hands so you better grab it ! ‘’
Tommy Delaney
‘’What these lads did for me can’t be put down on paper. Took me through a superb gym instructors and PT course resulting me in opening a very profitable and busy small business.I went on to do a kettlebell instructors//suspension trainer instructors and advanced nutrition course. Anyone looking to get into the fitness industry don’t bother wasting your time going anywhere else. Top notch lads! ‘’
Neal Dempsey
Elite FPA changed my life got me out of the job I hated for 7 years. I am now running my own gym with over 60 clients all because of the training and knowledge I have gained at Elite. Not only have I done my gym instructor and personal training with them, I loved it so much there I have also completed their kettlebell instructor, advanced nutrition, and circuit conditioning courses!’’
Mick Byrne
"I went to Elite not really knowing what to expect. I had 1 year of college completed and the course was so generic and irrelevant, I learned next to nothing. I heard great things about Elite but was skeptical about a 6 weeks course. I THOUGHT you needed years in college and a degree but they 100% deliver what they preach. QUALITY OVER QUANTITY!  I genuinely learned 10 times more in 1 week with the guys at Elite than I did in an entire year messing about in college wasting time. I could write a book about my experience BUT go through the EXPERIENCE for yourself, you'll be glad YOU DID!  
Jack O’Grady
‘’Fantastic trainers who in turn, train the best in the business. I have completed many courses with Sean and the boys at Elite and it’s safe to say, it’s changed my life completely! I’m now running my own business which before would only have been a dream. I cannot recommend the guys enough for all they have done for me in achieving my dream !’’
Stephen McDonald
‘‘I studied at Elite Fitness and Performance Academy and successfully completed their fast track PT course . In my eyes, Elite are the best in the business for delivering an A1 course . They changed the whole way I look at fitness. They are 15 years ahead of other in the irish fitness industry, with information that cannot be matched. Everything I learnt from elite I put it into practice immediately after leaving and to say it worked is an understatement . Plenty of interest from many different gyms and a job straight after leaving! I couldn’t possibly recommend a better place to study! If you love fitness and want to learn from the best you find it at Elite, thanks to all the staff to all at Elite for everything they have taught me! ’’ 
Sean Wootton
‘’Can’t recommend this place enough. I did the personal training course in Elite and by the end of the four weeks I felt equipped and excited to put what I had learnt into practice! Not only were my opinions of the industry changed, but I was inspired by the knowledge, expertise and successes of the lads delivering the course. These guys are the best in the business, so ahead of the game you’d be crazy to go to any other course. Brilliant facilities, quality course, exceeded my expectations, best money I’ve ever spent. Thanks again lads, I’ll be back…’’ 
Sean Wootton
"Loved every second of my time spent at EFPA, loved it so much I didn't want to leave and did a 2 week internship. I have already bagged myself a job thanks to these guys. I have attained so much knowledge in such a short space of time.
