"After many weeks of searching, I found that ACE is the most recommended institution for international fitness coach certificates. I have always wanted to be a fitness instructor, but I don't know where to start! ACE has very rich resources, and the FAA Academy in Hong Kong, which is in charge of training, gives each student a lot of support and help in the classroom, which is very professional!"
