- Detail oriented: It’s important to have a sharp eye and check things twice.
This program has helped me to better my own fitness level and be able to work with others. I love to work with children and the elderly, and this program helped me to design fitness programs for all levels of fitness. Thanks Penn Foster! I loved the ability to work at my own pace and the cost and payment plan was very affordable. Coursework was easy to follow, and instructors were helpful and informative.

Penn Foster is a great school with amazing people who always help and work with you through ANY situation. I experienced a fire in my home, and Penn Foster was there for me to cope through the situation. Thank you, and I will be doing another program soon.
