World-class Body Bar Trainers Will Lead Conference

“Body Bar Systems, Inc., a premier fitness company specializing in products and educational tools for fitness enthusiasts of all ages and abilities, announced today that FTP (Fit To Perform) will be the exclusive provider of Body Bar® brand weighted bars to the fitness and club market in Japan. Body Bar classes led by world-class trainers Keli Roberts and Rob Glick will be featured during the FTP International Fitness Convention, November 24 and 25, 2008, in Tokyo, Japan. ‘We are pleased to partner with FTP Japan, a true leader in group fitness and education,’ commented Timothy Riley, managing director, Body Bar Systems. In 1991, in response to the need for new fitness instructors to have much more in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge of their profession, international fitness presenter Phil Arney, M.Sc. and his business partner Jill Adams began to research, design and offer fitness instructor training programs in London, England. FTP first launched "Exercise to Music" (now known as "Group Fitness") and Gym Instructor courses, and quickly gained a reputation for producing highly skilled graduates – more than 4,000 of them - ready for hire into Europe’s top health club chains. Personal training, circuit training, water fitness, and a dozen other specialties were soon added to offer current instructors the chance to expand their careers. In 1998 FTP brought its top-quality instructor education courses to Japan. Since then FTP course directors have trained over 2,000 Japanese gym instructors, personal trainers, and Pilates instructors. Today FTP continues to focus its efforts in Asia, once again fulfilling its mission to provide instructors with the best the industry has to offer, preparing them to succeed in the exciting and ever-growing field of health and fitness. Body Bar Systems is a member of the IHRSA network, is a sponsor of the USA Women’s Wrestling team and sponsors several wrestling tournaments throughout the U.S”
