Through rigorous training and mentoring, the Academy ensures the consistent and high quality of personal trainers that Genesis Gym is well known for.

The Genesis Academy Certification (GAC)


The GAC is one of the world’s most comprehensive in-house training program for professional personal trainers. With client’s health in our hands, it is not time for “amateur hour”.

Unlike most other in house training programs for gyms in Singapore, the focus is not on how to hard sell gym packages, but on how to get clients great results.

We believe that our business is driven by delivering results and knowledge to clients. The GAC has hundreds of hours of hands on, highly supervised instruction where senior coaches mentor junior coaches to help their growth process.

There are currently 4 levels of the GAC.

Level 1 is a 3 month hands on internship with a theory component and a strong emphasis on practical methods. With a minimum of 50 hours of practical training, personal trainers who graduate will be well equipped to help a vast majority of clients who do not have current injuries or health problems.

Level 2 goes deeper into the theory and understanding of anatomy, biochemistry and program design. Students will also delve deeper into programme modification for medical issues, supplementation of micronutrients and controlling variables of diets and food plans to produce results. Level 2 usually takes a period of about 6-12 months to complete as there is a large component of reading and self-study.

Level 3 coaches usually have at least 2 years experience working with clients at Genesis Gym Singapore. This level is for coaches who are serious about going deeper into preventive healthcare and athletic performance. They will be further trained in areas such as anatomy, endocrinology, muscle activation techniques and advanced supplementation methods.

Level 3 coaches will be able to help clients with a wider range of movement problems or health conditions. They will also start to teach by mentoring newer coaches. This helps further solidify their learning from the previous levels of GAC.

A GAC Manager is able to operate a Genesis Gym branch without supervision. At this point in the certification, education is more customized to meet the client needs as well as the aptitude and interests of the student. Some possible areas to develop mastery in are:

  • Injury rehabilitation
  • Olympic weightlifting
  • Postural assessment and correction
  • Soft tissue and massage skills
  • Management skills for the fitness industry
At Genesis Gym, we are serious about improving the professionalism and quality of our Singapore personal trainers to ensure that our clients get the best results possible. This list of training modules included at Genesis Academy is consistently growing and evolving because at Genesis Gym, learning is never ending.
