If you've received an email asking that you make changes to your application before resubmitting for consideration, here are some suggestions on ways to improve your Free Response:

  • Insufficient information: Your free response should provide specific and detailed information, such as training experience, professional achievements, awards, certifications, and other facts that provide students with key information about your expertise. 

  • Grammar and Formatting: Free Responses must be grammatically correct, written in English, and should not include lists, sentence fragments, and improper capitalization or punctuation.

  • Resume or Cover Letter: FitnessTrainer does not accept resumes or cover letters in place of the Free Response. This also includes links and URL's to outside content, portfolios, or profiles.

  • Applicants have a limited number of opportunities to submit changes before their application is closed. The FitnessTrainer Content Review Team considers many factors when evaluating a potential trainer profiles, and not all applications are accepted to be listed on the FitnessTrainer platform.
