RTS1 Details


This course was created solely for translation for non-English speaking countries, wherein foundational information varies dramatically from location to location. If you reside in the US, UK, or Canada please proceed to RTS2 details.

While being extremely basic for RTS education, it is extremely challenging of traditional mind sets and shifting from an exercise enthusiast who offers his/her own workout to others toward the goals and more importantly the current needs of the individual client or patient.  

The RTS1 Course is the first step beyond the one-size-fits-all protocols and choreography of personal trainer certifications. The goal of RTS1 is to begin the path of a true Exercise Professional by learning to see exercise in a much deeper manner that only the study and application of Exercise Mechanics can offer.

In most countries The RTS1 Course is a 28 hour class held across four days, and divided 50:50 lecture to practical. (Because this course is typically presented in the language of the host country, a translator is utilized making the actual presentation of information inefficient for first-language English students.)

Prices are different in each country due to widely varying economics and exchange rates of each specific country, as well as the requirements imposed by the various local hosts/promoters who may differ from year to year.

Again, RTS1 was created specifically for students residing outside of the US, UK, and Canada and is presented and is administered by RTSGlobal (an independently owned contractor). If you reside in the US, UK, or Canada please proceed to RTS2 details.

Non-English exams are tailored to the logistics required by each country.

Please note that international providers must often work with local organizations, facilities, private individuals, and government regulators depending upon the country. For this reason, RTS, LLC accepts no responsibility or liability for the scheduling, administration, presentation, enrollment policies and procedures, cancellations policies of the contractor, as well as exam creation, administration, or notifications processes. Furthermore, each contractor maintains their respective RTS1 database of attendees and certified.

If you live in a country that hosts RTS1 you can learn information specific to your country by directing questions to Dr. Mark Slavin at [email protected]
