How to become a Personal Trainer with a successful career.

But with such a wide and versatile Professional Training proposal, where do you start?

Based on our experience with thousands of Trainers trained since 2009, we suggest these different options:

1) Do you already have general experience in Functional Training and want to specialise in the use of a specific tool or Training System?

>Start with the course that matches your specific technical interest between Kettlebell Training, Suspension Training, Flowbag & Sandbag Training, Clubs Training, Calisthenics Training, Body Building Functional Training and other specific Functional Training Programs.

2) Are you taking your first steps into the world of Functional Training and do not know where it is best to start?

>If you have good Joint Mobility (of the hips and shoulder girdle) and you already have available or plan to purchase the Functional Training tools, you can begin with the WTA Functional Training® Instructor Course.

>If, on the other hand, you recognise that you don’t have good Joint Mobility (of the hips and shoulder girdle), or you don’t have the Functional Training tools available, your best option is to start with the Primitive Functional Movement® Instructor Course (that is developed entirely free body, and teaches you how to improve Joint Mobility and how to best manage the use of the primary “tool” available in training, your own body).

There is very little to say… after years of study (including university) I have finally found THE TRAINING par excellence, with all the letters capitalised because capitalising the “F” alone would not suffice. The WTA Method is the top: scientific, detailed, innovative and unchallengeable... try it to believe it!
Sergio Scordino - 34 years old / Personal Trainer & Gym Owner - Agrigento (Italy)
Having completed my first Functional Training course with the WTA in Rome, I must say I have no doubts about the method and the professionalism that sets it apart... I am proud to have become a part of this family. 
WTA in the heart!
Mara Pastore - 35 years old / Functional Training Athlete - Andria (Italy)
I discovered this to Academy thanks to my husband who took his first WTA diploma in 2014... a unique Method of teaching .... the utmost seriousness shown by Master Emilio Troiano and the WTA Team. The clients who are super-satisfied with the results obtained from the work that we do as a Trainer .... these are the rewards!!!! WTA is the top!!!!
Silvia Mosetti - 36 years old / Personal Trainer - Aprilia (Italy)
After years of boring training, without programming and therefore destined to failure, all of a sudden, the WTA light... this discipline has entered my blood, continuously giving me satisfaction and enthusiasm, clear ideas and avant-garde concepts. If you asked me, “what would you have wanted to do in life?” I would not want to have done anything else than this... training and teaching with the WTA Method. WTA impossible to clone!!!!!
Andrea Drisaldi - 48 years old / Personal Trainer - Aprilia (Italy)
Never has training been married with the science and the study of biomechanics of the human body as it has been with the WTA. A level of attention is placed on the correct execution of every single movement to make it perfect that I would define as maniacal. Those who care about their own wellness and that of their students cannot but undertake a training course with this academy! Remember, for true 360° Functional Training there is only the WTA!!
Renzo Renna - 36 years old / Personal Trainer & Gym Owner - Bologna (Italy)
I was looking for something concrete, for something that was free from subjective interpretations and points of view, something that would put my doubts to rest, something that would interpret and transform the functional logic of the human body in an objective way in the field. I have found all of this with the WTA! It is a Method that has the potential to meet all these needs, and which has finally helped me to definitively distinguish the subtle border running between physiotherapy/rehabilitation and postural well-being and physical training.
Stefano Levagnini - 46 years old / Fisioterapista & Personal Trainer - Modena (Italy)
Something that upsets the usual patterns and the usual conceptions. An innovative Method that finally manages to establish a practical connection with the science of movement in 360 degrees in an intuitive and detailed way.
Maurizio Spagnolo - 32 years old / Personal Trainer & Gym Owner - Aprilia (Italy)
I got to know about the WTA through a colleague, and began with Functional Training. Now I have just done the Instructor course of Primitive Functional Movement®. Every time I have always found a professionalism and a seriousness in every instructor, with theoretical and practical lessons that leave nothing to chance. Everything is explained and studied in the minutest detail and the enthusiasm in doing so never flags. An excellent experience… I won’t stop here! I recommend it to all the experts in the field.
Matteo Rossi - 36 years old / Personal Trainer - Modena (Italy)
These have been three very intense days, and full of information, but more than anything, for me personally this has opened a new world!!! My compliments to the coaches, Costantino Marzari and Enrico Guarato, who both had a unique precision and professionalism!!! Well done!!!
Marcela Lucia Giovannini - 33 years old / Personal Trainer - Padova (Italy)
I have decided to continue training in this Academy because I have finally found the answers to many questions. Thank you everyone!
Alessandro Bardini - 31 years old / Personal Trainer - Mantova (Italy)
My life crossed with the WTA School in March 2014 with my first training course of Functional Training Instructor. From that moment on, everything around me changed. My way of living, of training, of seeking wellness was not always been the same. Thanks to the philosophy of life... as well as the teaching... that only an Academy unique in its field can transmit... it has pushed me to share my knowledge with the next person... but to do it better you must not never stop studying and updating. And only the WTA is able to do this with courses that are always new... more complete... always more stringent and selective. To know how to transmit wellness, one must study. Nothing is left to chance. Seriousness is at the base of everything. And that’s why my opinion of my school is always increasing. WTA impossible to clone!
Alessia Del Mastro - 43 years old / Personal Trainer & Gym Owner - Ancona (Italy)
You may arrive with many ideas, maybe even mixed up, but you leave the WTA courses with only certainties and the desire to do. It is not for those who spring but for those who want to push beyond!
Cristian Pilati - 25 years old / Personal Trainer - Bolzano (Italy)
I found out about the WTA method two years ago and since then I have realised that it is not only a training method, but a real instrument to rediscover the motor patterns that we lose over time, but which are always with us from birth. Today I finished the course of Kettlebell Training run by Senior Coach Giacomo Longo and I must admit that, even though it is my fourth course with the WTA, there is always, always, something to learn and the teacher was impeccable with his desire to transmit and his exceptional physical and theoretical preparation. I would highly recommend WTA, for this and many other reasons!
Giuseppe L’Abbate - 28 years old / Functional Training Instructor - Fasano (Italy)
Seriousness and professionalism distinguish the WTA from all the others... I am proud and honoured to be part of this great family, united, determined, and humble to the right level to progress and give everyone the opportunity to understand the benefits of this extraordinary training system!
Marco Renna - 39 years old / Personal Trainer & Gym Owner - Forlì (Italy)
You only realise how innovative a system is when you marry it in totality. You can only understand how many mistakes you’ve made in the past when you gain an awareness of the Method. The WTA has a concept that goes beyond the mere academy. It is a family in which we compare ourselves for our collective improvement. The guidance of Master Troiano represents a certainty that manifests itself not only on the level purely of the practical but also the theoretical: everything has a meaning and a function. Every gesture is aimed at achieving a result. His collaborators (Senior Coach) have been moulded in his image and likeness to such an extent that it is impossible to perceive the execution or the theoretical explanation of an exercise where he is not present. The WTA Method has revolutionised the concept of free body training and, consequently, my life.
Miguel Severitano - 37 years old / Personal Trainer - Avellino (Italy)
Knowledge is the basis of the human being. Every movement of the body requires a complete awareness and security of action. This is why the WTA Functional Training Academy collects and expands studies, knowledge, and experience for us trainers regarding functional training in its fullness and globality. In fact, speaking about simple training would be too simplistic. It wouldn’t be right! It is right to speak of pure MOVEMENT, understanding the true meaning of this term! A method of work that is outside the box. A safe and scientific method. A method aimed at all ages. But really for all. The only way to truly understand what functional training is and what it means to move. Nothing left to chance, nothing explained with superficiality. This is the WTA, this is my experience, this is my thanks.
Paolo Pullara - 31 years old / Personal Trainer - Agrigento (Italy)
I have trained with the WTA Method for 4 years now, and yesterday completed the course of Functional Training in Rome that I had been attending. It was my first course, and the coaches and Senior Coach Gianluca Gugliotti, whom I had the pleasure of meeting, are all very competent, professional and determined! What I would say about the WTA method is that I recommend it for everyone!
Emidia Manzella - 30 years old / Functional Training Athlete - Aprilia (Italy)
Do you want to grow, improve, and form yourself first as a person first and then as an Instructor? Follow the WTA Method. By attending the various courses and following the principles on which they are based, you no longer have any limits. I managed to execute the Pistol Squat, despite the fact that I have a torn cruciate ligament and meniscus to be operated on!!! Incredible??? No. Before the WTA, I simply did not have the right technique for executing the exercises. The WTA really is an amazing school!
Giuseppe Castrignanò - 35 years old / Football Trainer & Gym Owner - Fano (Italy)
The best academy that can be found in the sector... professionalism and competence are the basis of a training path. In the WTA, nothing is left to chance... Grand Master Emilio and the WTA are a great family of professionals... WE DON’T USE MACHINES... WE BUILD THEM!!!
Andrea Molon - 44 years old / Functional Trainer & Combat Sports Coach - Ivrea (Italy)
I came across the WTA Academy some years ago, and my vision of training changed forever... I understand what the fundamental qualities are that a body must have in order to be healthy and to be able to perform specific and professional sports to the best. I recommend being part of this Family, especially for the high quality of the courses and of their trainers... I have done many courses over the years... but when you finally find one that you have always been searching for… don’t let go!
Francesco Zonno - 37 years old / Personal Trainer & Gym Owner - Bari (Italy)
What is promoted, taught, and applied by the WTA Functional Training Academy is an effective, scientific, highly technical, and specialised method of functional training. Nothing is left to chance! Being part of this great Family is synonymous with the personal achievement of great goals, of potentials rediscovered, of growth. As an instructor, I am proud to be a WTA Trainer, for all that I have been able to learn from this Method, for the enthusiasm that I feel at every single training I undergo, for the limits that I thought I had and I have exceeded... for the fantastic results that I encounter every day on myself, and also on my students! The WTA creates dependency ... when you try it you realise the potential you have and that you can improve, pushing you to learn more and more, about who you are and what you can become!
Silvia Dal Bo - 41 years old / Personal Trainer - Treviso (Italy)
What can I say, if you are not content to be one of the many, I believe you cannot but attend this ACADEMY of Functional Training!!! This is because for a long time I have followed professionals of top-level sport, from Serie A footballers, to tennis players, athletes of combat sports, models, etc. Participate in one course with the WTA and you’ll forever be hooked!!
Luca Greca - 40 years old / Functional Trainer & Combat Sports Coach - Torino (Italy)
I came into contact with the WTA in 2013, revolutionising my way of training, making my lifestyle always better, and obtaining great results both as a Trainer and as an athlete. Even today, from my point of view, it is the most important academy in the field of functional training and athletic preparation. All of the courses are always explained in a way that is highly technical and rich in details followed by in-depth theoretical parts and with a great seriousness by all the trainers of Academy. I thank the entire WTA for what it has given me. Thanks to this constantly growing training path, I have been able to improve myself and overcome my own barriers, transmitting the highest quality to my students in their training as well.
Enrico Dino - 30 years old / Personal Trainer - Asti (Italy)
Competence, seriousness, and professionalism. This is what distinguishes the WTA! A training that meets the science of the biomechanics of the human body, and exercises consequently based on how they must really be done and not on “hearsay”. Once you start training with the WTA you won’t be able to do without it anymore, and you’ll want to do as many courses as possible to always improve yourself more!
Juri Orsi - 36 years old / Army Functional Trainer - Treviso (Italy)
