California Personal Trainer Program: Every Student Is Local

The American Fitness and Nutrition Academy first opened its doors in Santa Barbara, California in June 2009. By 2011, we operated three branches: Our original location in Santa Barbara, a second branch in Orange County, and our current main campus in Pasadena, California.

By 2013 we gathered up all our operations under one roof – the Pasadena main campus – and became a nationally accredited vocational institute. Finally today, with the introduction of our 100% online interactive distance learning program for Fitness and Nutrition Trainers, we are privileged to serve ALL of California, both fitness students and fitness employers alike.

Our mission all along has been to treat every student and graduate of our school like a local, no matter if you live right around the corner or hundreds of miles away. We serve our California fitness community and you are part of that community – wherever in our great state you may be. Your local AFNA is here to welcome you to an exciting and always-changing career in fitness and wellness.
