**NEW** PPFS Course and Certifying Exam Now Available by Distance Education **NEW**


We are excited to announce that our Fit 4 Two Pre and Postnatal Fitness Specialist course and certifying exam are now available by distance education. 


After five years of delivering this course, we have come to realize that attending a full weekend course in person is simply not possible for everyone.  


We have worked hard to create a distance education option that makes becoming a certified pre and postnatal fitness specialist more accessible to everyone.

"Thank you so much for such and informative and fun weekend. Your progressive and interactive teaching style was very effective and empowering.


The course material was very useful and easy to understand and apply! My prenatal friends have been getting an earful from me ever since... I'll certainly recommend the PPFS course to all of my friends in the industry."
