What Is a Fitness Certificate?

A fitness certificate (sometimes called a fitness award certificate) is an official paper document given to an individual certifying that he/she has passed or accomplished fitness training, physical training, or a medical health examination. The entities who award fitness certificates to its recipients are mostly fitness trainers (e.g. yoga instructors and swimming coaches) and health professionals (e.g. doctors and physical therapists).

How to Create a Fitness Certificate?

To help you create the best fitness certificate possible, we have compiled a few tips on how to create it effectively and elegantly.

1. Always Use Quality Editing Software

Using quality editing software allows you to personalize a fitness custom certificate as much as you want because of their flexibility and user-friendly features. Among the best editing software, you should consider as top choices are Illustrator, InDesign, MS Word, Pages, Photoshop, and Publisher. Alternatively, you can also opt to use reliable online certificate makers.

2. Choose an Appropriate Design

The design of a fitness certificate should depend on what's it for. Say for instance the fitness certificate is for a recipient's accomplishment in a women's yoga class, then it should have a dominant feminine design or images of yoga positions. Another instance, if it's for an award for a recipient's victory in an amateur boxing match, then it must have a masculine design, using a dark color scheme, or setting an image of a boxing match as its background. If you're struggling to choose a design, you can search online for editable and printable certificate templates with quality designs. There's a lot of that here in Template.net PRO.

3. Use Artistic Fonts For Recipient's Name

The recipient's name is the center of attraction in the creative certificate. Therefore, it's fitting that it should have an artistic font. Also, don't forget to enlarge the font size of the recipient's name. You can also opt to use eye-pleasing colors for fonts such as yellow, blue, and gold. Moreover, you can also do the same with the word "Congratulations" if it's present. However, it must have a distinct appearance from the recipient's name.

4. Add a Short Description About The Recipient's Achievement

To let the recipient appreciate the fitness certificate, consider adding a short description of his/her work and achievements during his/her time in the fitness program. It should be found right below the recipient's name. You can also include the starting date and the ending date of his/her time in the program. (e.g. for successfully participated in the Tranquility Yoga Session conducted between July 1, 2019, to August 1, 2019)

5. Frame It

Although not entirely necessary, framing the fitness certificate will be much more appreciated by the recipient. Consider the fact that the recipient may want to hang it on the walls of his/her house, or to display it in his/her cabinet of trophies and other achievement certificates. Not only that, but the frame also protects the fitness certificate from hazards that damages paper materials.
