I recommend the ACA above all other courses I have ever encountered, In ROI terms, you will not get a better deal anywhere that I know of. I am currently engaged in my Masters for Exercise Science, an expensive and time consuming endeavour and I can honestly say I am getting more practical and useful information from the ACA than I am from the college program. I would recommend this program to anyone serious about enhancing all elements of themselves and their business.

Patrick Michael Jennings
This is the future in coaching and personal training. I've been a trainer/coach for over 6 years now continuously developing myself, from Poliquin to Precision Nutrition. This ACA content and its application is the best the industry hands down, nothing compares! I would love to meet Phil and thank him personally for his outstanding resources, experience, knowledge and material he is sharing to help make me become an outstanding coach.
Every Pt should be made to sit the ACA. In only three weeks I have already started applying content to clients and see notable results. My business is also making more sense and I'm feeling a lot more confident in expanding. 

James Doolan
I've been on the ACA since it launched and haven't stopped reading and learning since then.
I've always found online learning hard to do consistently however the way Phil has put it all together has kept me coming back everyday to learn more and ultimately do more for me, my clients and my business.
So much amazing information and detail which has taken me way outside my comfort zone and made me see everything about me in a way I've not done before.

Best investment for me and my business I've done!

Mark Dini
I have completed several online educations programmes costing as much as 5 times the cost per month of the ACA yet the content within the ACA is the best I have seen by a long shot. The value for money is crazy, I would happily pay 10 times the amount without any hesitation. Phil's knowledge and understanding of every single area of the industry makes his content the best out there and my business wouldn't be the same without implementing what I have learnt from his seminars, free content and now the ACA. You would be a mug to miss out on the opportunity to upskill every area of your business. No brainer - get involved 

Jack Williams
Only the content of first few weeks gave mu much deeper knowledge in business, training, nutrition and psychology. I can honestly say, that I can even build my business just on ACA materials - I am not kidding.
If I compare it to PT course level 2. in my country, the price is the same - except ACA is 1 year, 52 weeks course, PT level 2 is 2 months. I've learndr more than on PT course just in first few weeks of ACA. I am so excited to receive 10 more months of materials...
This is IT - what I have been looking for last 2 years.
Thank you Phil. And you guys - feel free to invest in your knowledge, I guarantee you won't be disappointed
Martin Barna 
The ACA has already had a huge impact on me as a coach and business owner. Every piece of content so far has been applicable and helped me progress in areas I've been stagnant in for ages. Phil has educated me to not only coach better, but also enjoy my work with a new sense of clarity and direction. Phil's passion & experience is demonstrated in every sentence. It's not hard to see how much thought and effort has gone into his work. Thank you for caring Phil! – 

Louisa Hornung
As soon as I saw the details of the ACA, I knew I had to get on it. It was a no-brainer to me. The price doesn't do justice to the content in my opinion. All three modules are well put together and expertly researched with references provided for further reading. The business Acumen module has been the real game changer for me. I realise now that my business was being operated more as a hobby but now I am in full control and know exactly who I am talking to.

All in all, even though we are only in February, the ACA has been the single best investment that I have made in myself as a Trainer and for ‪Hollywood Fitness. PS The course had paid for itself within the first 5 weeks!

Niall Hollywood
Why wouldn't you want to join the ACA?

For me , Phil is among the top coaches out there . I jumped at the chance as soon as I heard it was starting.
Having attended Phils hypertrophy workshop and fat loss seminar I knew this would be perfect for the direction I wanted my business to go in.

I look around at the coaches who are on this course and they are some of the best in the country .
