In July and August, AAPT featured two graduates – Dan Salazar & Sarah Ponn.
Dan Salazar, a 2009 AAPT NYC graduate, has gone on to partner up with two mentors who together have opened several training facilities and two satellite boot camps in the tri-state area called KRANK Systems. They have 16 personal trainers on staff and still growing.
Dan says the three most important factors in his success are: “(1) Continuing education—the field is changing very rapidly we must stay up to date on all of the information that is out there to better serve our clients; (2) Mentors—align yourself with people that are where you want to be; and (3) Take action—[if you are an AAPT student or graduate] you are about to or have already received one of the best personal training credentials in the fitness industry!”
He attests, “With an AAPT certificate, you will have the tools to be a great trainer and make a difference in the lives of hundreds if not thousands of people’s lives.”
Sarah Ponn, a 2011 AAPT Boston graduate, has been a busy girl these past few years. After graduation she started her personal training career working with one-on-one clients and running her own bootcamp in the park in Boston.

Sarah and her business partner developed SURFSET Fitness—a unique and wildly innovative workou
