Since 1995, we have been providing one Certification for both Aerobics Instructor and Personal Trainer because we feel that an Aerobics Instructor should be all that a Certified Personal Trainer is and more. That's the reason why IFA Certification is becoming the most valued fitness certification in the world. The IFA Fitness ABCs manual is used for the syllabus at various institutions and colleges worldwide, as well as the US Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine (USACHPPM).

Our other courses, Sports Nutritionist, Senior Fitness Instructor, and Aqua Fitness Instructor, use the same Fitness ABCs Manual. Qualification details for IFA's newest Advanced Level courses can be viewed [here](master.htm).

If you are planning a seminar, please post it in our Events and Seminar section of the [Message Board](http://www.ifafitness.com/cgi/boards.cgi).

Film: "Super Size Me"

In [SUPER SIZE ME](http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0002OXVBO/qid=1112621042/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl74/104-4663411-5522310?v=glance&s=dvd&n=507846), filmmaker Morgan Spurlock unravels the American obesity epidemic by interviewing experts nationwide and by subjecting himself to a fast-food only diet for thirty days straight. His Sundance award-winning feature is as entertaining as it horrifying as it dives into corporate responsibility, nutritional education, school lunch programs and how we as a nation are eating ourselves to death. This Roadside Attractions and Samuel Goldwyn film was a winner of the WGA Documentary Screenplay Award.

IFA was invited to the initial screening in Chicago. This movie is revealing, shocking and funny. It may very well be the Rosetta Stone of Nutrition. The language of nutrition has been spoken but not until you see this movie will you really and truly understand what they have been saying.
