KILGORE Academy

VOCATIONAL EDUCATION FOR THE FITNESS INDUSTRY

The academy was founded in 2015 to provide a formalized and high quality vocational education for personal trainers, yoga instructors, and small gym managers that can be quickly and economically delivered anywhere in the world. Although a new institution, the academy can trace its roots, through its director, to 1997 when Dr. Lon Kilgore created one of the first completely online courses in American fitness academia, taken as a university core course by thousands of students. Years of refinements in teaching methods, assessment approaches, collaborative content creation, and technological advancements have culminated in the creation of the academy and its resident programs and courses.
