COMPARE FITNESS CERTIFICATIONS WITH VFCC

VFCC will support you from beginning, through the middle, to the end and then some. I highly encourage any Veteran looking for their next career to turn towards VFCC. You will not regret it."
-Kathleen Clemens, VFCC Alumni, US Navy Veteran
When I left active duty, finding a job/career was a nightmare. 11 years in the USMC, exemplary record, and good civilian education credentials--didn’t matter. In the course of literally hundreds of applications/interviews, I was told in a roundabout way by many employers, ‘so you led a Platoon of Marines in combat and you traveled all over the world in leadership positions-so what?' I know what it's like to be a veteran looking for a career niche in a world that doesn’t appreciate our credentials. So, in the absence of any other direction, I carved out my own niche in the fitness industry and I'm thankful I did."-USMC Major Tommy Dunaway, VFCC Team Member, and Snap Fitness Gym Owner
"VFCC Team, your spirit and work are exemplary and Ashland University is pleased to partner with you on providing better employment opportunities for vets.

"The VFCC Fitness Training Certificate Program is comprehensive and challenging. The information is comparable to what you’d find in a course at a college or university. What’s more, the course is 'taught' by an impressive roster of fitness professionals, some of whom are well known throughout the fitness industry. Having been employed in the fitness industry at the collegiate level since 1983, it’s my professional opinion that VFCC has developed a highly reputable certification program and I would recommend it to anyone in fitness." - Matt Brzycki, Asst. Director of Campus Recreation at Princeton University and Part-Time Lecturer Department of Exercise Science and Sport Studies at Rutgers University and USMC Veteran

- Tony Davenport, M.S., CSRT, VFCC Alumni, USMC Veterans"Transitioning to civilian life is among one of the biggest issues for vets today. When we get home it's confusing and overwhelming with what do I do next. When I work out I feel less anxiety and depression and less tense, all of which stems from the PSTD. That’s why a career in fitness is where I want to be for the rest of my time here on earth. I was so amazed with the resources and information VFCC provides veterans. Thank you for all you do."
- Justin Sikes, VFCC Alumni, Army OEF Veteran
