pt insurance break-through!

huge news! insurance for nutrition is now available to all recomp registered personal trainers.

no other registration organisation in australia gives pts access to this coverage. just register and insure now.

bodybuilding personal trainer registration & insurance

fitness registration & insurance does not allow personal trainers to coach bodybuilding, powerlifting or serious weight training; nor does it allow pts to prescribe sports nutrition. recomp personal trainer registration and insurance does.

nutrition insurance

recomp gives australian personal trainers access to the nutrition insurance they need, but cannot attain anywhere else.

our scope of practice (and insurance from jua) covers serious sports nutrition for gaining muscle and losing body fat, for fitness through to bodybuilding competition preparation.


1. register

any pt with cert 4 fitness or asca can register to coach body recomposition

2. insure

get insured for bodybuilding coaching and sports nutrition

3. certify

only 3 tests for experienced pts to certify their experience & excellence

reason to register

registration is all about insurance. organisations like recomp (peak bodies) define what insurance covers.

personal trainers can get fitness insurance without registration. but bodybuilding training & diet is excluded. to coach the public & athletes with heavy weights & sports nutrition, pt’s need recomp registration for valid insurance.

beyond fitness

fitness is about preventing illness from inactivity; not creating good bodies.

recomp is about creating lean, muscular bodies; not preventing disease.

fitness registration is for instructing aerobics, yoga, pilates, cardio, boot camps & group fitness. recomp registration is for coaching bodybuilding.

compare the scopes of practice to decide which is for you:

no more cec courses

we care greatly that personal trainers are competent & developing. therefore, we assess competence; not how much is spent on courses.

with recomp, there are no requirements or limits on learning options. successful education results in assessable competence which we reward with recomp certification.
