Successful whilst directionless, I was creatively-stifled and random in my Personal Training application. CAFS changed this – it renewed, reinvigorated, and revitalized my career, my clients, and my life.

–Clayton James, 3DMAPS®, CAFS, FGS


The conventional way of training wasn't working for me and I began to question the information other certifications contained. CAFS provided knowledge, understanding, and application based on science to make sure my clients achieve their goals.

–Doris Aluise, CAFS, 3DMAPS®, FCR
