The American arm of the International Federation of Fitness and Bodybuilding (IFBB) has welcomed Dr. Jim Bell as a sponsor and promoter.
Bell is the founder and chief executive of the International Fitness Professionals Association (IFPA).
The IFPA was founded in 1994 and has been committed to developing world-class personal trainers and fitness professionals.
The IFPA provides practical fitness education certifications and courses which they believe aids their mission to make a global impact on quality of life.
In 2000, the IFPA reached 100,000 members from around the globe.
Personal trainers and fitness instructors learn from the IFPA's learning experiences and scientific health and fitness information.
IFBB Physique America has welcomed Bell to their team.
"We are elated to have such an upstanding and progressive organisation as IFPA team up with IFBB Physique America," said President Wayne S. DeMilia.
"Having Dr. Bell on our team raises and increases IFBB Physique America to new levels.
"Our foundation is stronger today than yesterday as we add another person of honesty and integrity."
The IFPA offers personal trainer certification along with more than 70 other different certifications and education courses.
For example, the IFPA offers sports nutrition and group fitness instructor certification as well as military specialist certification.
