If you expect your fitness career to last, then Recertify for Life makes too much sense to pass up.

It’s important to note that as a Recertify for Life member, you must still meet the recertification/renewal requirements and submit a recertification/renewal application every two years.

But you’ll never have to pay a recertification fee again, which could present a substantial savings over the life of your fitness career!

To take advantage of your savings, simply go through the recertification process as usual. You’ll be able to submit your recertification without paying any fees.

Many of the other Recertify for Life perks—like 30% savings on specializations, workshops, and more—require calling in so that we can verify your Recertify for Life membership.
