Revolutionary Fitness People's Trainers (RFT) are individuals who truly serve their community through the vehicle of health and fitness. The programs they help provide are not only important services needed in our communities but also serve as a model to disadvantaged people who wish to begin to take concrete actions to deal with their predicament.

Each trainer comes from the communities we serve and shares a deep compassion for changing the state of health and fitness within our communities. They must each go through our Revolutionary Fitness People's Trainer Certification.


The process to become certified as a Revolutionary Fitness People's Trainer (RFT) is highly rigorous, assuring a knowledgeable trainer who is well trained in exercise science, plant-strong nutrition, yoga fundamentals and community development. Prospective trainers must show proficiency in the RevFit Joint Mobility sequence, take a written exam, take the physical Level 1 Warrior Test and based off of observations from the administrating master trainers.

Trainers are granted full certification at the Lead Trainer level I only after satisfactorily completing all parts of this examination process.

The process of education and evaluation is repeated with higher standards and different material at four additional levels of certification, from Lead I to Chief, preparing trainers to teach at increasing levels of competency.

Certification Levels of People's Trainers:

  • Lead RFT I (upon successful completion of Phoenix Education Program)
  • Lead RFT II
  • Master RFT I
  • Master RFT II
  • Chief Instructor
