New York, NY (PRWEB) May 19, 2014
The new AAPT Ft. Lauderdale is located in an upscale area just a short distance from the coast and plans to start its first classes in June 2014, offering Full time Day & Evening classes as well as a Part-time Weekend course. The space, which offers the latest fitness equipment and technology, is currently being designed and staffed. Just like the NYC and Boston locations, the school is state licensed. AAPT Owner Harry Hanson exclaims, “I am thrilled about this new location. Ft. Lauderdale is an ideal location as there are thousands of gyms across the state of Florida that would greatly benefit from the quality trainers AAPT turns out.”
In early 2007, AAPT opened its doors to their first class in NYC and one year later the Copley Square Boston location was opened. Over the course of the last seven years, AAPT has successfully graduated 1000+ personal trainers, many of whom have gone on to work for the best clubs in the industry and some who have opened their own extremely successful businesses. This new location opens up a great opportunity for aspiring personal trainers all across Florida to get the quality education AAPT offers. AAPT graduates not only gain top quality education and preparation but they are also supported in job placement. At all AAPT locations, the school offers a variety of graduate placement services, including individual career guidance, employer networking, monthly updates on job openings, and quarterly in-house Career Expo events where local employers are invited to meet and greet with AAPT students. Even in the months and years following a student’s graduation, AAPT’s placement staff is always available to extend a helping hand to its graduates.
Headquartered in New York City with branches in Boston and now Ft. Lauderdale, AAPT is a nationally accredited, private occupational school, widely recognized for its innovative approach to hands-on personal training education. AAPT's intensive 300-hour curriculum combines equal parts classroom lecture and laboratory instruction, covering subjects including exercise science, customized programming, injury prevention and business planning.
