About Capital Prep

Capital Prep was created because of the need for high-quality study materials in the fitness industry.

Our team members hold various personal trainer certifications and have years of experience. We all come from slightly different training backgrounds, which makes our combined knowledge something special.

In 2023, Capital Prep launched its own Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) certification. To maintain the integrity of the certification process, the Capital Prep Certification Council was established as an autonomous body within the organization to oversee and govern the CPT certification.

“I noticed that some of the personal training certifications had as low as a 50% pass rate. That was unacceptable. I had to do something about it.”

– Martin, President of Capital Prep

Through years of experience and countless hours of research, Capital Prep has become the leader in providing premium study materials for many major fitness certifications.
