“Informative, interesting, easy to follow. Easy to learn, great reference for future planning and program planning. Excited to apply to my own training, goals and contest prep and also to change lives of others”

Seaneen Copeland
Hillarys (WA), Australia





“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!”

Ryan Watson
Florida, USA




“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




“I completed 3 certifications in fitness, and I was still able to find this course so new and captivating. Easy to read through and perfect amount of information. I’ve used the information to put together competition schedules for both my husband and I and we were successful. I feel confident and I am looking forward to help my clients in their journey to the natural bodybuilding stage. Thanks IAPC!”

Andreea Spanu
Perth (WA), Australia





“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
Gold Coast (QLD), Australia



“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!”

Tom Aitken

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
North Nowra (NSW), Australia



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
East Keilor, Victoria

karoline_cerin_b_wJANUARY 2016 UPDATE…

“I have been involved with Natural Body Building and Sculpting for over 20 years, and began competing in 2002. As an accredited Personal Trainer since 2003, I have studied extensively and am always researching for further ways to fine tune the performance and appearance of not only myself, but also for my clients.

I have found that the I.A.P.C Course has been the most detailed, informative and specific text ever provided! It provides various tactics to enhance one’s look and performance, and teaches the importance of mental attitude.

Since completing the course, I applied my knowledge and won the 2007 Vic Open Figure title, and then 2 weeks later took out the Asia Pacific Open Figure title with almost 50 females through all the Figure divisions. I was also awarded Best Routine. Since then, I competed 8 more times, WON 4 titles through Asia-Pacific and Nationals, and was runner up in a further two in the Figure as well as Fit Body divisions. I was also awarded the amazing entitlement of World Pro Card holder with WNBF in 2008.

It was great to implement much of what I had learnt throughout the course!

Thank You
Karoline Cerin




At the end of successfully completing the course and examination you will be presented with a certificate, which will identify you as a Master Physique Trainer with the latest techniques/knowledge/skills on Bodybuilding contest preparation.

Your contest success bible…


“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.”

Money Back GuaranteeIf you don’t save years of trial and error and embarrassment…if you don’t quickly learn all the insider tips and tricks to build a fantastic physique… and if your satisfaction and business success doesn’t soar, while your frustration disappears…simply return the course contents in good condition and we’ll refund your complete purchase price, no time limit, no questions asked.



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. Complete the exam when you are ready and return it to the IAPC to receive your IAPC Bodybuilding Contest Preparation Certificate to display on your wall.

I now have a deeper understanding of the process of the work that we did and can apply this broader knowledge to my future competitions as well as to prepare others as a coach. Thank you.”

“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!”

Tony DiCostanzo

“I have only just started competing in the bodybuilding competitions as a figure model but have been training for quite some time. I am a personal trainer part time and I run HIIT classes. I have found this course to be extremely informative, interesting and easy to read and follow. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to compete or is competing and wants extra knowledge around nutrition, posing, stage presentation etc. This course will assist me in my own competition preparation as well as my stage presentation and posing technique. It will also assist me in helping my own clients reach their goals of competing. This course is definitely jam packed with information that can assist you to bring out your best package on stage. Thanks Heaps”

Kathy Isaacson
Salisbury Downs, Adelaide

“This course has been fantastic in determining why my last personal trainer was hopeless. Just because it worked for him, nothing was working for me. We had different body types, we had different metabolism levels, we had different mental outlooks, we had different food likes and dislikes and even the training suited his body type but not mine. I now feel confident within myself now to prepare for the next competition, especially with the vast array of information provided within the course that is so hard to find in books and on the internet (that was in a layman’s language).”

Christine Whimpey
Moorabbin, Australia

“What a fantastic informative course. I have taken my knowledge to the next level.”

Tammy Howe
Mount Gambier (SA), Australia

“I have tested this course on myself first, saw fantastic results then proceeded to use it on clientele not just for bodybuilding prep but also for transformations. I have achieved phenomenal results for everybody from competitive bodybuilders to beginners. The course detail taught me to be able to explain in a simple and effective way to help clientele understand what they were doing, which I believe was the key success point in their transformations. This course is great and recommend it to any personal trainer or fitness enthusiast.”

Richard Collins
Melville, Perth, Australia

“I have very much enjoyed this course and for the first time I have been able to have the entire start to finish education of competition prep. I have competed in figure twice and have used several different trainers over the past few years and it is simply amazing how the views on comp prep are so varied among trainers. Having gone through the actual prep twice, in most cases the process is taken too extreme and I found on my own and in this course that it does not need to be like this. This should be an enjoyable process and quite often it is far from that and I now know that it does not need to be that way. This course has given the real science and process from start to finish in a manner that provides individuality, without ridiculous extremes and allowing for an enjoyable journey to the stage in a healthy way.”

Karen Finch
Ontario (NY), USA

“I really enjoyed the course. I have been looking for something like this for a long time. It is well put together.”

Suzanne DeHaven

Aaron Powell
Miami (FL), USA

“I found the content of the course package extensive. It provides clear and concise actions to follow.”

Kevin Anderson
Townsville (QLD), Australia

“This course was very informative. It would be most beneficial especially for beginners (such as myself) and also for those who live in a remote area or who don’t have a great mentor, such as Harry Haureliuk!”

Paul McKew
Isabella Plains (ACT), Australia

“I am not a personal trainer, and I don’t even work in the fitness industry. I work, I have a young active family and I study. I also love looking after myself and keeping fit (and meeting new friends along the way). This course has been a terrific motivator and I will use the tools when I decide to compete in my next bodybuilding contest – when my life isn’t so hectic. Along the way I will use the advise and knowledge gained by the course to assist me in my training and sustain a healthy lifestyle for myself and family, and also help friends of mine who have shown an interest in the sport. As a busy woman of 40, this type of training and thinking is something I know I can carry on with for years to come, and not suffer from physical stress related problems. It was a great idea to create this course. Thanks.”

Bev Lindley (Tri-Life Personal Training)
Townsville (QLD), Australia

“I found this course very informative in every aspect of being a bodybuilder. I have been competing for nearly 5 years now and before this course I relied on my Trainer for diet and competition information. This year (with the help of my husband who is completing a sports nutrition course) we will be doing the diets ourselves. Although I started to panic on the low protein levels (but using at least 2gms per kilo) and reading and completing this course has helped me relax a bit. This year it’s trial and error and hopefully I’ll come through. I especially liked and used the Stage Presentation information in Dubbo and Sydney contests this year and found I got the judges attention. Thanks for putting the course together. My friend is going to compete this course now too. Thanks again.”

“I recently purchased your physique conditioning course and it arrived this past Friday May 9th 2008, i spent all weekend going through it, i was so excited at the size of the book alone as i am currently enrolled in canfit-pro and there book arrived Friday as well but is nowhere near the size of yours and in my estimation no where near as complete when it comes to diet and body typing and contest prep! Canfit pro is a course to become a certified personal trainer here in Canada and is very well regarded, but your course will put me that much further ahead of the other trainers in many ways, i currently work as a trainer at world health club and one of the female trainers has asked me if i would trainer her for a bodybuilding contest !!! Wow it is very informative and complete, so much i did not know or understand, even as a competitive bodybuilder myself!!!! I notice in the back of the book where the exam is that you can send the test to me via email in a word document, i would love for you to do that as it would make it so much easier for me with school and my personal training business.
Thank you so much”

Not only will this course be valuable for contest prep but for my whole clientele. The course provides you with great training principles, nutritional information and very useful tips you would probably never come across.

I should have bought this course years ago. I highly recommend it to all.”

Currently putting all new knowledge into practise and seeing great change happening. Many thanks.”

Natalie Rouse
Herefordshire (England) UK

“The course was very informative. It explains the different nutrition and training programs according to your bodytype, rather than just one-size-fits-all. I have used one of the weight training programs and I was impressed (not to mention other people as well!) by the muscle I have gained. I have learnt so much, which would have been great before my last competition and look forward to putting everything into practice for my next competition. I have the confidence that I can now educate my clients to be the best that they can.”

Brenda Milne
Shepparton (VIC), Australia

“I’ve purchased bodybuilding books at the book store, but the information enclosed has always been vague. The IAPC is geared with Awesome information! IAPC unfolds bodybuilding secrets from supplements, Nutrition, exercise, posing, and my favourite, secrets to manipulate supplements and food. My motivation has sky-rocket after embracing IAPC information. I’m at the gym early morning hitting it heavy And take in full accountability that my circadian rhythm clock is ticking so now, I know when I need to take my supplement.”

Heriberto Macedo

Michael Cutts
Armidale (NSW), Australia

“Have been in the industry for a lot of years. Have competed in both bodybuilding and powerlifting. This course answered a lot of questions for me. Well worth the money and a great source of knowledge to always have on hand. As a Personal Trainer and still a competitive bodybuilder, I will constantly have this book close to me for reference.”

Dale Leonard
Mildura (VIC), Australia

“After trying to digest and filter through millions of bits of information provided by so many “experts” it is refreshing to have material that has been tried and tested with enormous results for bodybuilders. I have suffered from bad advice on dieting and adopted the nutrition plans in the course with amazing results. I am competing in my first comp on the 1st May with much more confidence & enthusiasm. I am a personal trainer as well as owning Mick & Colleen’s Fitness Centre and will be advising clients on this model of training. Thanks Wayne & Richard.”

Colleen Cutts
Armidale (NSW), Australia

“This course enabled me to essentially bypass all the “BS” surrounding this industry and therefore I was able to cut to the chase with my own training. There are so many so called experts out there saying “Do this, Do that”, as well as lots of myths and one can easily get overloaded with too much of unnecessary information. The bonus for me is that I now have the right knowledge to help others and already my friends are constantly asking for my opinion to help them achieve their own fitness goals. I feel so empowered now and very excited about my journey towards competing for the first time.”

Lisa Wuersching
Bribie Island (QLD), Australia

“This course is great for those who are willing to gain more knowledge in areas of contest preparation, training psychology, nutrition and training methods.

Christopher Penfold
Sutherland shire (NSW) Australia


“I have been a trainer for many years since 2003 and was always in awe of the bodybuilder’s physique and their mental training to achieve their goals. I attended the All Female INBA contest and was amazed by their physiques. I just wanted to know everything there was to know about this new world and believe me it’s a difference world! Trawling the internet is time consuming, confusing and I didn’t know what to believe or where to start. By doing this course I believe I am getting the best information from a renowned and trusted source (Australian) and a great platform to build from. There is a lot of information here that I can now apply to my PT career and my own training straight away. I have so much more confidence being armed with the knowledge from the course, there were no grey areas, I feel the skies the limit. Thank you IAPC!”

Danielle Georganakis
Highett (VIC) Australia

“Absolutely amazing course! So well-designed for easy studying. Great knowledge and invaluable insight.”

Myra de Villers Kruger
Toronto, Canada

“As a figure competitor and someone who lives in a remote rural area it’s always more of a challenge to get help and advice when it comes to contest preparation. So to be able to prepare myself for competition not only makes my life easier but makes it a very satisfying and educational experience. Thank you.”

Nikki Croft
Inverloch (VIC) Australia

“The information contained within the pages of what i would call ‘the bible of bodybuilding contest preparation’, have been inspirational as well as filling in the gaps and blanks to what i thought was the perfect scenario. My clients and trainees will now be able to progress at a greater pace to reach their goals. This course has now inspired me to take on clients for competition and has also sparked an interest once again in competing. Thanks will never be enough to express how this course has changed me as a person and my future goals and aspirations.”

I found it an invaluable tool in understanding the bio-chemistry within the body and how to diet efficiently and painlessly. I was able to put myself in a winning mindset, knowing what the judges would be looking for and how to present my body. Given this, I am very happy to report that I placed First in INBA Figure Novice Tall Class at the Queensland State Titles in September 2011.”

“Its a great course!! It gave me all the knowledge I need for competing. It gave me also the confidence to get on stage.

Rasha Bin-Eidan

“The course has helped me and my clients out greatly. We are all currently weeks away from our shows and we have been able to add great variety to our prep. Our options to attack the stage have increased tremendously.”

Vincent Grant
Houston, TX, USA

“I am competing in my first bodybuilding show later this year and have found this course has helped me gain an advantage in striving to achieve my leanest and most muscular body to date. The course has helped particularly iron out the myths of bodybuilding, from supplements, training, mindset and also help with pre and post contest organising. I can see myself also using this as a springboard to help others achieve their goals through my own Personal Training business….A must have qualification! Train to win! “

Ben Prescott
Terrigal (NSW), Australia

“It has been years since my bodybuilding career started and all I can remember back then was how frustrated I was trying to figure out my body type, what was the best workout and diet that would suit me best. Because of this course I am proud to say all my questions were answered! This course is just so informative! Not only does it provide you with workouts, nutrition, supplementation, contest rules and many more to list, but ultimately it starts the course off with motivation and the right mind set! Money well spent!”

Christopher Cheong

Terry Gibbs
Sunnybank Hills (QLD), Australia

Krista White

“I competed in my first mens physique competition in 2012 and had no idea of all the little detailed tips that the IAPC course has now taught me.

Thank you IAPC and everyone involved for producing such knowledge when it comes to bodybuilding and contest preparation and providing us with all of it.”

“I enjoyed this course. There is so much information I will be able to use training bodybuilders and non bodybuilders. I am 60 years old and just returned to physical activity 3 years ago. Two years ago I obtained my Cert IV in fitness. One of the unticked items on my bucket list is to compete in a bodybuilding contest. I would love to win, but even if I place last I will be an example to others in my age group.”

Mary Berecry
Strathalyn (SA), Australia

“Loved the course, it answered a lot of my questions and will help me as a personal trainer use the knowledge from the course to specialise in this area. When I was looking to compete I couldn’t find much specialised information out there. The course answered a lot of my questions and gave me a complete overview of bodybuilding and including all aspects from correct nutrition, training, preparation and competing. Because the information was from the IAPC I knew I could rely on it.”

Melanie Shortt
Moonee Ponds (Vic), Australia

“This was my first opportunity to be exposed to a course which could provide bodybuilding ways and methods. I came across a lot of things I didn’t know about and my mindset towards things I thought that were “simple” for bodybuildings are a lot more appreciated now. Bodybuilding has become more of a greater interest for me the more and more I read about it and think about it. I think this course is a good start and to give some exposure to stuff you should learn to lead into the bodybuilding path. I don’t regret doing it and reading is not my thing but when your keen to learn on a particular topic you will do it! I will definitely try to bring the stuff ive learnt into my on Personal Training Business with particular clients.”

Zeffie Halacas
Sydney (NSW), Australia

Emilie Bric
Scarborough (QLD), Australia

“I’m so glad I did this course! I learnt a lot of new information, but also I have learnt to trust what my body is telling me in response to training and diet changes. I feel like the “mental tests” that will present during the contest prep won’t throw me off because I will already expect and understand them.”

Stephanie Stewart
Pyrmont (NSW), Australia

“An excellent course, so much great information. This will really help to take things to the next level.”

Jodie Cowdrey

You will not be disappointed!”

Kylie Dickers
Edinburgh (SA), Australia

“I was 140kg, and lost 40kgs and was stuck. I didn’t know where to go, or how I could learn about bodybuilding. Then I found this course, which saved me (literally). It has given me so much knowledge that took me some time to process it all. My body is looking better in very positive way and I’m doing my first competition in 60 days.

“Great course for anyone looking to better their physique, or help someone else improve on theirs. I’m looking forward to implementing some of the techniques on my current and future clients.”

Derek Bishop
Orangevale, California, USA

“As soon as I found this course online I enrolled. It took me a little longer than the requested time to complete only due to other study commitments, but I always looked forward to reading the IAPC text book. When I was able to find time to read the text I struggled to put it down, at night I would lie in bed with a torch reading for I didn’t need the big light on and keep my girlfriend up. This course has helped me a lot with my own comp preps and stage presentation, as well as my other studies. I can not wait to read through the text book again so that I can make sure it’s all stored into the memory bank.”

Adam Rogers
Latrobe Valley (VIC), Australia

“The course was clear and concise and covered many topics that I have never come across in countless hours researching of bodybuilding contest preparation. It leaves no stone unturned and I can’t wait to put my new found knowledge into action.”

Tim Johnston

Heidi Jubber

Scott Rolph
Newport/Sandringham (VIC), Australia

“Really enjoyed the course! The information was laid out very well – easy to follow and enjoyable. As a trainer who has helped many people prep for shows, there was still plenty of valuable information that I’ll be taking on board and lots of great confirmation about methodologies I’d been following. Loved that you covered so many different aspects of preparing. Thank you! Would definitely recommend!”

Kat Millar
Sydney (NSW), Australia


“I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I felt it covered all areas of bodybuilding and competition for both men and women.

“Absolutely loved this course!! I couldn’t put the book down and was so excited when it came in the mail. This course covers EVERYTHING you need to know for Bodybuilding and competing. As a competitor I always wondered what the exact calculations needed for a contest diet, depletion, carb up, sodium load and water load. There is so much information out there these days and this course has narrowed the “What if’s” to an exact calculation needed in order to succeed. Mentally and physically this course reveals all. Thank you.”

Ebony Page
Baldivis (WA), Australia

“Such a valuable resource! I always knew the why but know I have such a better understanding of the How. It was more of a light bulb moment. “Ah Haw” moment, now I get it. The Information provided was so well written and presented. I loved the hard copy text with examples and explaining the breakdowns; carb loading, water level, percentages and timing to prepare realistically to show day. As a natural competitor I could really relate to the stories and scientific studies/information; body types and necessities for training, key supplementation, nutrition, diet and training with the pros and cons of each to consider the personal need of each client.”

Jeanine Piva
Victoria Point, Brisbane (QLD), Australia

“Great content and use of studies to illustrate the main points. Currently, I’m studying nutritional science and it was great to see some of the articles I’ve already read included in the course.”

Joe Boyle
Takapuna, Auckland, New Zealand

“Loved it! Lots of great information as well as some useful tips and tricks. The content was well presented. The ideas and concepts in the course were well thought out and I like how the scientific literature was used to back what was being discussed. The exam was challenging but not impossibly hard. Overall, a fantastic course for anyone wanting to further their knowledge in this field.”

Patrick Ranasinghe
Cairns (QLD), Australia

“After completing cert 3 and 4 in fitness, with what was summed up to quite a large amount of unstructured information to try and digest (this especially being a problem with an industry that just recently here in Australia, finally decided to reshuffle its course works to get all training institutes on the same page). In a nutshell, here it is, PT courses in Australia will obviously give you most things provided in this book, plus the structure needed to work with Allied health professionals, deal with legislation, structure programs, understand nutrition, etc. Which is all well and good. But the one thing it doesn’t do, is give you a sound, proven blueprint on what you need to know to get someone to build muscle or lose fat in a timely manner. So even though PT courses give you most things that are in this course, what they do not give you is a formula of appropriate places within a systemised approach, on how to use these tools and techniques effectively to get precise end results, you’re kind of just expected to figure that one out on your own. I think if you are a PT and you are looking to be of high value service to your clients (even if you choose to not compete), this small course should be a prerequisite for anyone to have to pass, before they can call themselves an industry professional. Success leaves traces, with rule number one being that if you have a systemised duplicatable approach towards doing something, with that there is every chance that you will get for yourself “consistent predictable results!” This course is that systemised duplicatable process you will have been looking for, which will give to you the “consistent predictable results” anyone should openly want to choose to acquire, in order to allow the ability to truly be able to bring out the full potential of yourself or anyone else you may choose to serve via use of this information.”

Paul Humphries
Yass, (NSW), Australia

“Thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was great to have so much information complied into one, simple resource. Everything from Carbohydrate loading, Contest Day checklists, Judging criteria, Somatotype programming, Contest day strategies and even how to get your mindset in the right groove to seize the big day.”

Andrew Young

Lots of great knowledge, all useful and applicable. Thank you.”

Adam Hamilton
Jindalee, Brisbane (QLD), Australia


“I became interested to learn more as a trainer about bodybuilding after visiting the Arnolds Classic Amateur Qualifier 2018 in Melbourne. While reading the course book I found many good ideas and advice in it that do benefit first timers in their prep and on stage. The book is written really well – interesting to read and lots of good advice for training and nutrition and mindset to prepare for a competition. The posing routines are well explained and with the photos and advice a novice will get good ideas what to focus on.”

Ira Hornung

“I own my own fitness and personal training studio and found this course to be an excellent source of information for the clients who come in to see me. I also compete in Figure Competitions and entered my first comp in September 2007 and to my suprise won my division and the overall title and would have loved to have known about the info in this course. But as a true competitor I have refocused and want to improve and this course has given me the tools I need to help me improve where I need to.

Tekiri (Tee) Whana
Gold Coast (QLD), Australia


“I found the course very informative and easy to read. I think it’s great that the IAPC offers such a course due to the lack of specific step by step instructions available out there. You can find a lot of anecdotal tips and tricks for manipulating the body for a contest but nothing like this. A great idea by the authors to construct such a course certificate. I learned a lot and IAPC’s course is something I’d recommend highly to my fellow fitness enthusiasts! Thanks for the invaluable information and education you’re offering to the community!”

Kosmas Papageorgiou
Oslo, Norway

“Great course! The content was so informative and interesting. An absolute wealth of information. I will now be keeping the course book as my bible and can see myself referencing it regularly. Another thing that I loved about the course was how it was easy to read. It was as if the course designers are talking directly to you and you’re not just reading dry content. You can really feel their knowledge and passion for what they teach. A+”

I rate this course one of the best courses I have had the pleasure of doing. Never in my experience of fitness education have I learned so much about the specific subject of Physique Conditioning. The presentation and order of the material is professional, to the point, and pleasing to read. I am still very involved in my Personal Training Gym training clients in the various elements of fitness. I recently joined ICN/INBA in order to promote a drug free platform for up and coming physique athletes in my area. I have a renewed zest for the sport of bodybuilding as result of my association with your organisation. Thanks for this wonderfully unique course, which I believe is an essential prerequisite in order to help me to promote ICN in the KZN midlands”

“I wish I had known about this course earlier! The content is comprehensive, specific and satisfying to study. I immediately began implementing the strategies outlined with my clients and myself, to great effect. The non-elitist tone of this course is refreshing, as every other text or article I have ever read tended to chastise the reader for even aspiring to compete in the sport! This course added a wealth of wisdom to my other studies and experience as a PT and I have already begun heartily recommending it to my colleagues.”

“This course was very indepth and insightful, it has covered a wide range of different aspects that should be considered in any competition preparation, it has built my own confidence in coaching and I feel it has given me the tools nessesary for successful competition preparation for any client that comes along the way, I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking for extra guidance with their competition prep as I feel this gives a great competitive edge over other competitors.”

The course book is well written & easy to understand. I am excited to pass on my new found knowledge to others who are just as passionate as I am in bodybuilding.”

“This was an extremely informative course! Everything was explained very clearly and for areas of particular interest, the text also provided references for further reading and research. This was an investment that I know will pay off in my Personal Training business, as I can now confidently tailor specific training and dietary programs for my clients. Thank you for this resource!”

Loretta Watson
Melbourne (VIC), Australia

“This course is brilliant!! I found it hard to put down, and was reading it at breakfast, dinner, between clients – literally every moment I had, I had my head in the book! I had been on a high protein diet for 4 weeks, but quickly tweaked it once I got to the nutrition section, and also changed my cardio and weights routines. Never have I noticed such a quick change with my physique! Thank you so very much for putting the material together – I am now looking forward to seeing what I can further accomplish within the ‘figure’ sport. I’m on stage in 4 weeks in my first Open Class. With only giving myself 8 weeks to prepare, I don’t think I could have done it without doing the course. The lessons on manipulation and presentation and mind power have given me more inspiration to do the Open Class whereas initially I may have felt intimidated.”

Sheta Hall
Hamilton, New Zealand


“Now armed with the course I have a better understanding of what it takes to become a champion. This course has also assisted in my current studies – Certificate III in personal training. A great source of information and knowledge not often shared in the arena.”

Jo Altman
