"This course has been fantastic in determining why my last personal
trainer was hopeless. Just
because it worked for him, nothing was working for me.
We had different body types, we had
different metabolism levels, we had different mental outlooks, we had
different food likes and dislikes and even the training suited his body
type but not mine. I
now feel confident within myself now to prepare for the next
competition, especially with the vast array of information provided
within the course that is so hard to find in books and on the internet
(that was in a layman’s language)."
Whimpey, Moorabbin, Australia
"I have very much enjoyed this course and for the first time I have
been able to have the entire start to finish education of competition
prep. I have competed in figure twice and have used several different
trainers over the past few years and it is simply amazing how the views
on comp prep are so varied among trainers. Having gone through the
actual prep twice, in most cases the process is taken too extreme and I
found on my own and in this course that it does not need to be like
this. This should be an enjoyable process and quite often it is far
from that and I now know that it does not need to be that way. This
course has given the real science and process from start to finish in a
manner that provides individuality, without ridiculous extremes and
allowing for an enjoyable journey to the stage in a healthy way."

Paul McKew, Isabella Plains (ACT), Australia
"I am not a personal trainer, and I don’t
even work in the fitness industry. I work, I have a young active family
and I study. I also love looking after myself and keeping fit (and
meeting new friends along the way). This course has been a terrific
motivator and I will use the tools when I decide to compete in my next
bodybuilding contest – when my life isn’t so hectic. Along the way I
will use the advise and knowledge gained by the course to assist me in
my training and sustain a healthy lifestyle for myself and family, and
also help friends of mine who have shown an interest in the sport. As a
busy woman of 40, this type of training and thinking is something I
know I can carry on with for years to come, and not suffer from
physical stress related problems. It was a great idea to create this

Lindley (Tri-Life Personal Training),
Townsville (QLD), Australia
"I found this course very informative in
every aspect of being a bodybuilder. I have been competing for nearly 5
years now and before this course I relied on my Trainer for diet and
competition information. This year (with the help of my husband who is
completing a sports nutrition course) we will be doing the diets
ourselves. Although I started to panic on the low protein levels (but
using at least 2gms per kilo) and reading and completing this course
has helped me relax a bit. This year it’s trial and error and hopefully
I’ll come through. I especially liked and used the Stage Presentation
information in Dubbo and Sydney contests this year and found I got the
judges attention. Thanks for putting the course together. My friend is
going to compete this course now too. Thanks again."
Adams, Glenmore Park (NSW), Australia

studying fun and exciting."
Cameron Wilson, Northmead

of technical material with a pragmatic approach. After 15 years of

Freshwater (NSW), Australia
"As a Personal Trainer
and competitive bodybuilder with an eye for physique talent and
coaching future competitors, I am exceptionally pleased to have
completed this superb course. It is more – much more than just
“Personal Training”! This course has taught me more and also reinforced
my methods used competitively in what I was coached in doing for my
first competition two years ago at age 48 years old! Placing second in
the IFBB Over 40’s under 80KGS! Physique training, lifestyle and
wellness is my passion and I live it."
Kloof, South Africa
informative, as a amateur competitor I have been asking detailed
questions to pro competitors for quite some time in regards diets,
supplementing etc and I was never given any answers let alone detailed
answers that I understood. This course explained the answers to my
questions regarding competing in detailed form that is easily
understood. This information will benefit me enormously when I compete
next and now I can accurately answer so many of the questions that
others ask me. So thank you for this course, it must be one of the most
informative and detailed courses available on the market I have EVER

Corio (VIC), Australia
"I recently purchased
your physique conditioning course and it arrived this past Friday May
9th 2008, i spent all weekend going through it, i was so excited at the
size of the book alone as i am currently enrolled in canfit-pro and
there book arrived Friday as well but is nowhere near the size of yours
and in my estimation no where near as complete when it comes to diet
and body typing and contest prep!
Canfit pro is a course to become a certified personal trainer here in
Canada and is very well regarded, but your course will put me that much
further ahead of the other trainers in many ways, i currently work as a
trainer at world health club and one of the female trainers has asked
me if i would trainer her for a bodybuilding contest !!!
Wow it is very informative and complete, so much i did not know or
understand, even as a competitive bodybuilder myself!!!!
I notice in the back of the book where the exam is that you can send
the test to me via email in a word document, i would love for you to do
that as it would make it so much easier for me with school and my
personal training business.
Thank you so much"

only will this course be valuable for contest prep but for my whole
clientele. The course provides you with great training principles,
nutritional information and very useful tips you would probably never

Prof. Dr.Varant Z.
"There are two main things that set this course apart from most other
sources of information:
1. It is set in clear and concise layman’s terms which are easy to read.
2. It explains and denotes correct methods using referenced evidence
and study. Pros and Cons are mentioned equally which allow the reader
to use their own logic and judgment.
I should have bought this course years ago. I highly recommend it to

knowledge into practise and seeing great change happening. Many thanks."
Herefordshire (England) UK
"The course was very informative. It explains the different nutrition
programs according to your bodytype, rather than just
one-size-fits-all. I have used one of the weight training programs and
I was impressed (not to mention other people as well!) by the muscle I
have gained. I have learnt so much, which would have been great before
my last competition and look forward to putting everything into
practice for my next competition. I have the confidence that I can now
educate my clients to be the best that they can."

Mildura (VIC), Australia
"After trying to digest and filter through millions of bits of
information provided by so many “experts” it is refreshing to have
material that has been tried and tested with enormous results for
bodybuilders. I have suffered from bad advice on dieting and adopted
the nutrition plans in the course with amazing results. I am competing
in my first comp on the 1st May with much more confidence &
enthusiasm. I am a personal trainer as well as owning Mick &
Colleen's Fitness Centre and will be advising clients on this model of
training. Thanks Wayne & Richard."
Armidale (NSW), Australia
"This course enabled
me to essentially bypass all the “BS” surrounding this
industry and therefore I was able to cut to the chase with my own
training. There are so many so called experts out there saying “Do
this, Do that”, as well as lots of myths and one can easily get
overloaded with too much of unnecessary information. The bonus for me
is that I now have the right knowledge to help others and already my
friends are constantly asking for my opinion to help them achieve their
own fitness goals. I feel so empowered now and very excited about my
journey towards competing for the first time."

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! "

course has helped me and my clients out greatly. We are all currently
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."

great information, I’m really glad to have done the course. Thank you."
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,
for anyone debating whether on taking it or not, I highly recommend the
IAPC course. Thank you IAPC and everyone involved for producing such
knowledge when it comes to bodybuilding and contest preparation and
providing us with all of it."

"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

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
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
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

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

made things much clearer."

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

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

"I own my own fitness and personal
training studio and found this course to be an excellent source of
information for the clients who come in to see me. I also compete in
Figure Competitions and entered my first comp in September 2007 and to
my suprise won my division and the overall title and would have loved
to have known about the info in this course. But as a true competitor I
have refocused and want to improve and this course has given me the
tools I need to help me improve where I need to. I highly recommend
this course to any person in the fitness industry or to anyone who
wishes to compete in Bodybuilding competitions."
