The team at Body Blueprint is absolutely amazing. Their wealth of knowledge and willingness to help you out every step of the way is completely outstanding. I have learned so much with every course and workshop I have taken, both in class and online. If you are looking at pursuing a career or knowledge of fitness, this is the best place to do it. Thank you very much for helping me obtain the knowledge I need and then some, to start my new career in the fitness industry.
I have dealt with Body Blueprint Fitness Education for over 20 years as the Recreation Program Coordinator for the City of Nanaimo that contracted Christina Truscott to lead the training for Fitness Theory and Group Fitness. The City continues to use Body Blueprint for these courses. I took my training through Body Blueprint and the instruction and class practice sessions were excellent.

I have taken two courses through Body Blueprint and love the clear, current, easy-to-follow information in the course material and the fast turn-around In receiving my certificates. The exam questions are challenging and really help consolidate my learning. I plan to take more courses through Body Blueprint; they are a super value.

I went to the Fitness Theory and came out with the confidence and knowledge to go ahead and complete the Group Fitness Course also. Tina makes the courses exciting and fun she has a love of fitness which is passed onto her students. I am continually referring to the great text books which comes with each course and plan to take future courses with her. Thanks for the great first step toward my new career in fitness.

Without Tina’s encouragement and motivation I couldn’t have made it through the first couple of years as a new Instructor. Tina is more than a course conductor, she is a mentor to many and will do anything to help you be the best you can be!”
