Fitness Professional Online is a community where personal trainers, group fitness instructors, strength coaches, and others in the fitness industry come to freely share and exchange ideas through:

Does the World Really Need Another Site About Fitness?

No, it doesn’t.

In fact, the World doesn’t need most of the websites out there right now…

But, here’s what makes FPO different from all the rest:

In a vast pool of fitness, business, and personal growth blogs, Fitness Professional Online is unique because it’s owned and operated by real fitness industry experts who actually walk the walk and have owned gyms, personal training studios, bootcamps, and have “been there, done that”… In other words, we’re not a group of kids fresh off some weekend seminar or just Internet marketers.

We actually DO THIS STUFF!! (And we’re pretty dang good at it.)

In fact, our founder, Doug Holt has:

  • Accumulated 19 different health and fitness degrees and certifications (nerd!)
  • Worked sports camps
  • Owned an elite private fitness facility in Santa Barbara, CA for over 15 years!
  • Helped write and edit certification textbooks and courses
  • Consulted for some of the top companies in the fitness industry
  • … and still plays sports [somewhat] competitively

… We walk the walk.

And along the way, Doug and his team have learned a lot of lessons, perfected a large number of strategies and tactics. More importantly, like any good scientist, we’ve tested our theories and brought in other experts to share their knowledge as well. We’ve tested, retested, and proved strategies that simply work.

Best of all, we’re sharing them with you here.


All of us started in the fitness industry with a passion to help others. This is our calling. We were frustrated with all the websites, blogs, and educational institutions that only wanted to make a buck off of information that we felt should be freely shared. Sure, we all have to pay rent, but some of the basic guidance that was passed on to us by those that came before us needs to be paid forward so that we can help others to become better fitness pros and make the World a better place. That’s you and that’s why we’re here.

We are always here for you!

We love to hear from our fellow fitness professionals, strength coaches, personal trainers, and everyone else in our amazing industry. Whether you have a question or need assistance, you may contact us anytime…
