When you started OTA Level 1, we asked you “to approach this material with a beginner’s mindset.”
Now, with OTA Level 2, we need you to approach what you’re about to learn with the perspective of an expert—an expert who’s mastered the basics of online training and is now going to learn a new business model to make it more efficient and profitable.
You’re going to learn a proven system that makes your prospective clients see you as the obvious choice to help them solve a vexing problem, and be willing to pay you a premium price for your expertise.
The scalable model you’ll learn and deploy in the next 8 weeks allows you to help more people and invest more time building your business, rather than scrambling to keep it afloat.
There are 5 modules (and 3 graduation modules) with their own unique homework assignments. Each assignment builds another part of your business as you move along. Your program, service structure, documentation, and marketing strategy will be ready to go eight weeks from now.
Additionally, we’ll let you know when to book one-on-one phone calls with our coaches. Like the homework assignments, they’re mandatory.
The program challenges you to do more work on your business in less time than ever before. It’s designed to push you out of your comfort zone, to struggle, to take imperfect action, and to learn from your missteps. That’s why our coaches are here for you every step of the way.
Once done, you’ll be a Level 2 Certified Online Trainer, a member of a very small and select group, and one of the most qualified online trainers in the world.
Years from now, you’ll remember OTA 2 as the beginning of a new phase of your business, and perhaps your life as well.

As a former social worker, Chloe has always loved people. A group fitness side hustle launched her into managing a big box fitness facility. She quickly realized she was made to defy industry standards and, with the help of OTA 1, she launched Coaching w/Chloe. She now coaches women exclusively online from her home in Minneapolis, Minnesota where she lives with Kiwi the Pitbull.

Jon Vlahogiannakos (aka Strong Jon) is the owner of Strong Jon Fitness and helps parents lose up to 20lbs of fat without relying on cardio or strict meal plans. He went from working in person and a hybrid model to fully online after COVID (and a move to a new city). Running a business from home with a baby and a 5-year-old doing virtual school has been challenging but living a balanced life is at the forefront of his goals. Based in Canada, Jon is either hanging with his family, helping clients, working on his podcast, or enjoying a good donut.
Alex Harriman started online training when his son was born. It was an opportunity for him to create his own schedule, be home for his family, and provide additional income. He left in-person training shortly after and hasn’t looked back! Along with being a husband and father, Alex is also a Firefighter. Because of this, optimizing his business (Breaking Ninety Fitness) is always top of mind and he loves helping other Online Coaches accomplish the same thing!
Formally a primary school teacher, Adrian balanced his teaching position with coaching clients in person in his local gym. Doing this for over 2 years, Adrian was on the verge of being burnt out and knew an alternative approach was needed. Shortly after enrolling in and trusting the process of OTA 2, Adrian left his permanent teaching position to pursue his passion in becoming a full-time Online Coach.
Melissa Shevchenko is the owner of Fitgirlsrock. She helps women take their power back by letting go of restrictive diets & finding the badass confidence they deserve. Melissa went from working 10-12 hrs/day on the gym floor to full-time online training after completing Online Trainer Academy Level 2 during COVID. In the last couple of years, she’s consistently grown her online business so that her husband can leave his job and together have more freedom to travel and explore the world.
Step 1: Apply
We are very selective about who we let into the Online Trainer Academy Level 2 Certification, for this reason, you’ll need to apply on this page.
Step 2: Interview
After applying, you’ll then be invited to your first interview lasting 15 minutes with one of our team members. If you ace this interview and we think you’re a good fit, then you’ll be invited on to a second (and more comprehensive) interview. This interview lasts 60-minutes, and if you ace this one, then you’ll be invited into the Online Trainer Academy Level 2 Certification.
Step 3: Learn and Take Action
You’ll be sent 3 books: OTA 2 Main Manual, Workbook, and Graduation Materials Booklet (and also given digital access so you can start right away). Like OTA 1, the manual works in tandem with the digital portal and workbook. You’ll see prompts throughout the manual telling you when to use those resources. The exercises aren’t busy work. In fact, they’re the opposite. Each assignment builds another part of your business as you move along. Your program, service structure, documentation, and marketing strategy will be ready to go eight weeks from now.
Step 4: Get Support
Additionally, we’ll let you know when to book one-on-one phone calls with our coaches. Like the homework assignments, they’re mandatory. On top of this, there are weekly group coaching calls with your coaches to get all your questions answered and the deep unique help that you need. Our coaches are here for you every step of the way.
Step 5: Network and Mastermind With Other Industry Leaders
As a student, you’ll be added to our community of other OTA Level 2 Students, Graduates, and Coaches. You’ll be able to ask questions, learn, and surround yourself with others at your level and who are where you want to be. As Jim Rohn says, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Who do you want to surround yourself with?
Step 6: Become a Level 2 Certified Online Trainer
Once done, you’ll be a Level 2 Certified Online Trainer, a member of a very small and select group, and one of the most qualified online trainers in the world. Years from now, you’ll remember OTA 2 as the beginning of a new phase of your business, and perhaps your life as well.
