"Very well written and very informative. The best book on competition

completing this course."
Michael Gregoriou, Derrimut, Victoria, Australia
"I thoroughly enjoyed the content covered in this course. After
completing it, I definitely feel as though I have a distinct advantage
in not only assisting my clients achieve their goals, but also for my
own preparation. I’m looking forward to applying this knowledge to my
next season of competition and producing a much more complete package
when I next step on stage."
Christopher Penfold, Sutherland shire (NSW) Australia
"I have been a trainer for many years since 2003 and was always in awe of the
bodybuilder’s physique and their mental training to achieve their
goals. I attended the All Female INBA contest and was amazed by their
physiques. I just wanted to know everything there was to know about
this new world and believe me it’s a difference world! Trawling the internet is time
consuming, confusing and I didn’t know what to believe or where to
start. By doing this course I believe I am getting the best information
from a renowned and trusted source (Australian) and a great platform to
build from. There is a lot of information here that I can now apply to
my PT career and my own training straight away. I have so much more
confidence being armed with the knowledge from the course, there were
no grey areas, I feel the skies the limit. Thank you IAPC!"
Danielle Georganakis, Highett (VIC) Australia
"Absolutely amazing course! So well-designed for easy studying. Great knowledge and invaluable insight."
Myra de Villers Kruger, Toronto, Canada
a figure competitor and someone who lives in a remote rural area it's
always more of a challenge to get help and advice when it comes to
contest preparation. So to be able to prepare myself for competition
not only makes my life easier but makes it a very satisfying and
educational experience. Thank you."
Nikki Croft, Inverloch (VIC) Australia
information contained within the pages of what i would call ‘the bible
of bodybuilding contest preparation’, have been inspirational as well
as filling in the gaps and blanks to what i thought was the perfect
scenario. My clients and trainees will now be able to progress at
a greater pace to reach their goals. This course has now inspired
me to take on clients for competition and has also sparked an interest
once again in competing. Thanks will never be enough to express
how this course has changed me as a person and my future goals and
Victor Perez, Avondale Height (VIC) Australia
have learnt so much from reading through this course. The information
has helped me to understand what my body needs for competition training
and to understand the science behind the nutrition and training
programmes I have been using. I found the Course enjoyable to read and
I found that completing the Examination helped to deepen my
understanding of the material in the Course. I have learnt so many new
and useful information and tips from reading this material."
Maureen Thomas, Wanganui, New Zealand

Leon Stensholm, Mountain Creek (QLD), Australia
decided to complete this course to help me plan for my first INBA
competition. The topics cover everything you need to prepare mentally
and physically. I found it an invaluable tool in understanding the
bio-chemistry within the body and how to diet efficiently and
painlessly. I was able to put myself in a winning mindset, knowing what
the judges would be looking for and how to present my body. Given this,
I am very happy to report that I placed First in INBA Figure Novice
Tall Class at the Queensland State Titles in September 2011."

Michelle Hoskins, Castle Hill (NSW) Australia
am so glad that I came across this course, thanks to my figure coach
suggesting it. I'm a personal trainer and this has supplemented my
other education and training so well. Everything was easy to understand
and well set out, and so informative and in depth! I took my book
everywhere with me and filled out bits and pieces of the exam
in-between clients. Even my colleagues at the gym have had a flick
through and commented about how much valuable information is in this
book. Thanks again! "

weeks away from our shows and we have been able to add great variety to
our prep. Our options to attack the stage have increased tremendously."
Vincent Grant, Houston, TX, USA
am competing in my first bodybuilding show later this year and have
found this course has helped me gain an advantage in striving to
achieve my leanest and most muscular body to date. The course has
helped particularly iron out the myths of bodybuilding, from
supplements, training, mindset and also help with pre and post contest
organising. I can see myself also using this as a springboard to help
others achieve their goals through my own Personal Training business….A
must have qualification! Train to win! "
Ben Prescott, Terrigal (NSW), Australia
has been years since my bodybuilding career started and all I can
remember back then was how frustrated I was trying to figure out my
body type, what was the best workout and diet that would suit me best.
Because of this course I am proud to say all my questions were
answered! This course is just so informative! Not only does it provide
you with workouts, nutrition, supplementation, contest rules and many
more to list, but ultimately it starts the course off with motivation
and the right mind set! Money well spent!"
Christopher Cheong, Frankston (Vic), Australia
good information. Well Structured. Fantastic guide for anyone looking

and mirrors and provides real information, backed up with science. I
will benefit from the knowledge I have gained for years to come."

Krista White, Port Lincoln (SA), Australia
competed in my first mens physique competition in 2012 and had no idea
of all the little detailed tips that the IAPC course has now taught me.
Absolutely had a great time and enjoyed reading through this course,

IAPC course. Thank you IAPC and everyone involved for producing such

providing us with all of it."

Lex Ronin, Richardson, Texas (USA)
"Very detailed and comprehensive course materials. Great for practical implementation."
Amy Gerstl, Dover Heights (NSW), Australia
enjoyed this course. There is so much information I will be able to use
training bodybuilders and non bodybuilders. I am 60 years old and just
returned to physical activity 3 years ago. Two years ago I obtained my
Cert IV in fitness. One of the unticked items on my bucket list is to
compete in a bodybuilding contest. I would love to win, but even if I
place last I will be an example to others in my age group."
Neil Edward Gallier Jr. Castle Hill (NSW), Australia
"Great course, wish there was a course around like this in the 90’s. So much information, can’t wait to use it now that I’m 50."
Mary Berecry, Strathalyn (SA), Australia
"Loved the course, it answered a lot of my questions and will help me
as a personal trainer use the knowledge from the course to
specialise in this area. When I was looking to compete I couldn’t
find much specialised information out
there. The course answered a lot of my questions and gave me a complete
overview of bodybuilding and including all aspects from correct
nutrition, training, preparation and competing. Because the information
was from the IAPC I knew I could rely on it."
Melanie Shortt, Moonee Ponds (Vic), Australia
was my first opportunity to be exposed to a course which could provide
bodybuilding ways and methods. I came across a lot of things I didn’t
know about and my mindset towards things I thought that were “simple”
for bodybuildings are a lot more appreciated now. Bodybuilding has
become more of a greater interest for me the more and more I read about
it and think about it. I think this course is a good start and to give
some exposure to stuff you should learn to lead into the bodybuilding
path. I don’t regret doing it and reading is not my thing but when your
keen to learn on a particular topic you will do it! I will definitely
try to bring the stuff ive learnt into my on Personal Training Business
with particular clients."
Zeffie Halacas, Parramatta (NSW), Australia
course is amazing!! Gone are the days of “Eat Big, Get Big!” This

Seaneen Copeland, Hillarys (WA), Australia
course was extremely informative and made easy to understand. Every
chapter had a piece of information. Nothing was boring or repetitive,
it is a lifetime tool. Really enjoyed it. Thank You!"
Emilie Bric, Scarborough (QLD), Australia
so glad I did this course! I learnt a lot of new information, but also
I have learnt to trust what my body is telling me in response to
training and diet changes. I feel like the “mental tests” that will
present during the contest prep won’t throw me off because I will
already expect and understand them."
Stephanie Stewart, Pyrmont (NSW), Australia
"An excellent course, so much great information. This will really help to take things to the next level."
Jodie Cowdrey, Kambalda (WA), Australia
"The book is very informative and I have learned a lot. I am excited to
start incorporating some of my new knowledge!"
Ashlee Alfred, Killeen (TX), USA
"I really enjoyed the course. I loved studying, reading and learning it
all. As a Bodybuilding and Figure competitor I recognised and related
to it all. I can see how my Trainers have used the techniques and
methods from the manual/course to prepare me for stage. I will
certainly refer to the manual frequently."
Debbie Andrews, Westfield (WA), Australia
Bodybuilding contest preparation has helped me thoroughly understand
how the body works! It will give you a full understanding of everything
you will like to know as a personal trainer or bodybuilder. The ins and
outs of competing, measuring, posing, supplements. You will not be
Kylie Dickers, Edinburgh (SA), Australia
"I was 140kg, and lost 40kgs and was stuck. I didn't know where to go, or
how I could learn about bodybuilding. Then I found this course, which
saved me (literally). It has given me so much knowledge that took me
some time to process it all. My body is looking better in very positive
way and I'm doing my first competition in 60 days. Thank you so much
for putting this course together. It has helped me so much, and has
made things much clearer."

that I am certified to train people for bodybuilding."
Mike Hamilton, Lomita (CA), USA
am a personal trainer and bodybuilder currently preparing for my first
competition. Completing the IAPC course I feel has given me a
competitive advantage for when I step on stage. I now feel ready and
much more confident taking on all the tips and tricks I have learnt
through the course. I really feel like nothing can stop me now and
already have that winning feeling, and have to give credit to this
course and the great deal of knowledge I have gained from it."
Rob Failla, Campbellfield (NSW), Australia
course for anyone looking to better their physique, or help someone
else improve on theirs. I'm looking forward to implementing some of the
techniques on my current and future clients."
Derek Bishop, Orangevale, California, USA
soon as I found this course online I enrolled. It took me a little
longer than the requested time to complete only due to other study
commitments, but I always looked forward to reading the IAPC text book.
When I was able to find time to read the text I struggled to put it
down, at night I would lie in bed with a torch reading for I didn’t
need the big light on and keep my girlfriend up. This course has helped
me a lot with my own comp preps and stage presentation, as well as my
other studies. I can not wait to read through the text book again so
that I can make sure it’s all stored into the memory bank."
Adam Rogers, Latrobe Valley (VIC), Australia
course was clear and concise and covered many topics that I have never
come across in countless hours researching of bodybuilding contest
preparation. It leaves no stone unturned and I can't wait to put my new
found knowledge into action."
Tim Johnston, Frankston (VIC), Australia
found with my passion for nutritional knowledge and hunger to learn
more that completing the IAPC course would be a great way to dive into
this area and into the world of competitive bodybuilding in much
a prep coach I found this course a great deal of information that can
only be acquired by doing this course and I feel that it is an
advantage and I would highly recommend this course to any competitor or

look good along with my other Certificates and future exercise science

the book I now feel confident to tweak my own contest preparation.
Also I am looking forward to the change with the various training programmes.
Hopefully with this course I will also be able to guide future competitors in the right way."
Heidi Jubber, Ballarat (VIC), Australia

% from 24% -16% in 12 weeks without any issues with a solid plan. I
can't wait to help others do the same."
Scott Rolph, Newport/Sandringham (VIC), Australia
"Really enjoyed the course! The information was laid out very well – easy to follow and enjoyable.
As a trainer who has helped many people prep for shows,
there was still plenty of valuable information that I’ll be taking on board and lots
of great confirmation about methodologies I’d been following. Loved that you covered so
many different aspects of preparing. Thank you! Would definitely recommend!"
