“This certification was the answer to all the questions I had on contest prep that no one could seem to answer. The IAPC did so with research and studies all cited in the manual to prove it. I completed this exam exactly between competing in two shows. The first show I placed 5th but after applying this knowledge to myself in the second show I placed 1st, not to mention 3 out of 4 of my clients took home hardware in the same show. The proof is in the pudding Baby!”

“I have been competing in bodybuilding since 2002 and now feel confident that I am able to not only tweak my own contest preparation but also help guide other potential competitors to the stage! I found the course to be very interesting and informative and look forward to putting the quality information into practice.”

Christine Zadel
2007 INBA Ms Australia, (Women’s Physique) winner
Wagga (NSW), Australia




“The information packed into this course is invaluable. Having been a lifelong bodybuilder myself and having already produced champion competitors, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. After completing this certification course I recommend it highly not only for competitors, but also for trainers and all those wanting a deeper and richer knowledge of contest preparation. This course can save competitors and trainers years of unnecessary “hit or miss” type regimens and protocols. Everything from mindset, nutrition, diet and training… through to supplementation and posing — it’s all detailed and laid out comprehensively, yet explicitly. This course is one of a kind and a must read for the competitor and/or trainer!”

“I have found this course sensational and full of practical knowledge that I have used for preparing myself during Figure competitions. I followed many of the steps in the Nutrition section (particularly the high protein diet and cleanse) in the 2009 contest season and I came-in the best condition ever. I used all the monitoring tools also and now have a clear plan and guide for this year’s comps. Thank you so much.”

Michelle Nazaroff
Baldivis (WA), Australia




“Wow! What an in-depth and insightful course! I would thoroughly recommend this for anyone wanting to compete themselves, or to assist others to do so. The manual is jam packed with useful tips to assist you to be the best you can be – thanks IAPC!”

Frank Zane, winner of three Mr Olympia’s admitted after losing the 1982 Olympia “I was 40 years old and still learning things for competition.” A characteristic of this sport and lifestyle is the life-long journey of discovery and learning….. about the human body…and yourself. The IAPC comprehensive course is essential to own and add to your past experience and knowledge. For those just entering the sport, this course is the front door! It will prevent you wasting years of time in the school of hard knocks…and put you into the inner circle…join those in the know TODAY.

You already have a winning attitude…otherwise you wouldn’t be investing your time reading this. Combining your winning attitude and strong desire to get better results almost guarantees you will be successful. All you need is to combine your enthusiasm with the right information…which you will have at your fingertips in this course. Soon you will start pumping out championship physiques, your reputation as a Master Trainer will soar…and your personal training business profits will start overflowing. The more you read on, the more you’ll realise this course is exactly what you have been after…


How often have you heard after the event, “You should have seen me the next day, I was big and ripped”? It sadly happens all too often……mistiming your physical peak by being too early or too late. Well, this course will help make this a thing of the past. There’s nothing worse than going through months of extreme discipline, for it to be in vain, when you miss your peak.

With the course…Never again fall prey to, “If only the contest was today!”



“I found this course to be “the icing on the cake” to cap off my personal training course, previous knowledge and competition experience. Having been there and done that, I have learnt so much more which I only wish I knew prior to competing myself previously. It is the attention to the little things which takes care of the bigger picture. Thanks.”

Mandy Wilkinson

“I have been involved in natural bodybuilding for about 27 years. In that time I made it a quest of mine to sift through the good, the bad and the totally senseless to know exactly how to obtain a great physique. I have met and have had dealings with numerous great champions such as Frank Zane, Chris Dickerson, Tom Platz and especially the late Mike Mentzer (who I’d regard as a personal friend) to name a few. However, even through all those years and with a great deal of knowledge of training and nutrition philosophies, I still as a trainer needed to know the exact protocol and science of getting someone in great (not just good) competition shape. Even with years of experience I was not confident enough to do this. Everyone you meet has different theories and views on the subject and if you are or have been lucky enough to squeeze out information from the successful few, it still only applies to themselves and not to anyone else with different genetics and so forth. You are still left wondering and left in the dark so to speak. I looked around and was fortunate enough to find your website and the information it offered. I read what the course had to offer and it was EXACTLY what I was looking for. I went through it thoroughly and applied it. I have since taken 3 competitors to the INBA Queensland titles in different class and age groups with fantastic results (pics of one such competitor below…Leith Truss). In ending, I would wholeheartedly and unequivocally recommend this course for anyone who is serious about ‘getting it right the first time whether for your own achievements or someone else’s. Don’t leave things to chance….The I.A.P.C. course will do it right for you for sure!”

Are you curious as to how winning bodybuilders get into such extraordinary shape…six pack abs, extreme muscularity, great proportion and size…they just look fantastic!

Well, for the first time you can have that edge…the same one that those in the winners circle have jealously guarded for years and kept to themselves. The IAPC Bodybuilding Course will let you in on all the secrets to help your dream become a reality…and fast.


This is the first and only course of its type in the world. It will take you by the hand and lead you step by step on what needs to be done to become a Champion. Everything you need to know and more importantly…do! From the basics of training and diet, right through to the little known secrets and techniques which up till now have been known only to a relatively select handful of people. You owe it to yourself (or clients) to do this course.

This unique and powerful course can take anyone from a beginner through to a professional in record time…thus saving you years of trial and error. No more will you be frustrated by not knowing what to do…this course lays out the exact steps you need to take and when.



“Thank you for your sharing your experience and taking the hard work out of experimenting with diets and training techniques.”

Ivan Murray

Why not take the guesswork, uncertainty and indecisions that have been haunting you, out of the equation?

What do you do when a client asks a question you don’t know the answer to…admit you don’t know, or make up an answer…?

Well after this course you’ll know the answers. No more vague umming, ahhring, staring at the ceiling and scratching your head…and coming out with clichés like “everyone’s different”…while inside your mind frantically scrambles, trying to make up or come up with a plausible answer or solution to your clients question or problem.

Let’s face it…no one wants to admit they don’t know or do not have all the answers…that’s human nature and only natural. Wouldn’t it be great to know all the answers and be a Specialist in physique transformation and bodybuilding contest preparation?



“I have been training for over 10 years, competitively competing forapproximately 3 years. I am “VicFit” accredited in Gym Instruction and Personal Training, continually researching and studying to further improve and increase my knowledge and skills. To date, I have never read anything so detailed and informative, with various tactics used to enhance one’s look, performance, and mental attitude (and it’s all in the one text!). This is definitely worth the read and study.”

karoline_cerin_b_wNOVEMBER 2007 UPDATE…

“I have recently competed and incorporated much of what I have learnt from the course. I competed with the Vic Comps being held 30 September, where I had won the Open Figure Division and came Runner Up in the Overall Division. Two weeks later, I went to Sydney to compete in the Asia-Pacific Championships. It was a huge event with a great standard of competition. There were almost 50 girls spread throughout the entire Figure Divisions! Once again I won my division; Open Tall Figure, together with Best Routine, and then came Runner Up in the Overall Figure. It was great to put into practise much of what I had learnt throughout the course.”

Thank You
Karoline Cerin

“I have to say that this was a very informative course. I was impressed to see information resulting from actual tests performed by the authors and particularly in relation to females. There are so many resources aimed at the Male bodybuilder that also prescribe methods that are completely unsuitable to the female form. Well done on providing a valuable and informative resource that I plan on using quite a bit in my future endeavours.”

Louise Vu-Duy
Melbourne, Australia

“This course has been amazing, so much information and knowledge to learn. Before was 238.5 lbs, 32% body fat and 36 years old from one source is rare. I highly recommend this course to every personal trainer and competitive athlete, you will learn sport nutrition and many many things that were left out of your other courses, I know this personally as other courses left me feeling cheated of knowledge in many different areas and this fills the gaps nicely. I feel I can train my clients for whatever it is they are looking to achieve. I am a competitive bodybuilder and certified personal trainer and most courses that I have taken leave out all the sport nutrition and body typing and carb loading and the list goes on and on, my advice buy this course and you will gain knowledge and remember knowledge is power, continue to educate yourself and your clients.”

It is simply the most comprehensive work on the subject ever written…

Up until now any bodybuilder or personal trainer wanting to learn this information would take them years on their own (and they still wouldn’t know everything that’s in the course). The only other alternative would be to pay an elite bodybuilding personal trainer (who are hard to come by and expensive). This would be time consuming and expensive. For example, even if you could get access to one, and they looked after you price wise by only charging, say, $75 per hour, (Richard Hargreaves charges $200 per hour.) You would be looking at paying $1800 (12 weeks x 2 sessions per week x $75). And you still wouldn’t get absolutely everything you need to know…and you would have to remember it all from verbal communication.

This course is much better and more comprehensive than any information available on the market today. It has taken thousands of hours to research and prepare. Months of burning midnight oil and painstaking attention to detail. It’s worth more than $1800 (but you won’t have to pay anything near that). Not only do you get more info/value than 12 weeks of elite personal training…you have a permanent reference work to draw upon (no-one’s memory is perfect…and why would you want to rely on memory when you can have it all written in easy to follow step-by-step instructions) But we want to offer great value for money and over deliver.




“Fantastic information – look forward to putting both training and diet-preparation into practice. I learnt a lot from the course. Already being a Personal Trainer, my knowledge has now widened into a new field of expertise: adds value to my business. Thank you.”

Ian Howie
North Lakes (QLD), Australia

Think of it this way…at a rate of $55/hr….if you just train one new client only twice per week for just 12 weeks leading up to a contest…that’s $1,320 less the course fee …you’ll be well ahead…and if you train more than one new client and train them more frequently…and to continue to train them after the show…well I’ll leave that up to your imagination on how much it’s worth.
Not to mention the extra prestige you and your business receive when you start churning out physique champions! Soon word of mouth will have you so busy you won’t have time to scratch…but that’s a good problem to have because then you can put your price up…and start getting paid what you really deserve.
Over the period of a year, the cost of the IAPC course works out at just 82 cents per day!

This course offers sensational value…you will rapidly and easily increase your knowledge and skills to be able to command a higher price. The more you understand just how valuable our product could be to your personal training business, the less you think about delaying this important purchase.


“The day I received the course I immediately put the concepts to work on my PT clients. The results have been excellent. The knowledge I’ve gained from this has translated into 5 more new clients this week alone! I urge all of you out there looking for ‘the edge’ to buy the course.”

Lucas McLaren
Morphett Vale (SA), Australia



The course can be done anytime…part time, full time, spare time…The course is done “home study” style and is estimated to take 60 hours to study.
