How do I become an EBF Trainer?
The first step is to sign up for the EBF Trainer Certification. Following an introductory Skype call, you’ll begin watching videos, practicing movements (“homework”), and uploading test videos of yourself performing and teaching what you learn. To graduate, earn a passing grade on all test video uploads or attend one of our Certification Events. At the Certification Event, you can complete in-person tests to accelerate or complete your certification. To teach at an EBF Facility, contact an EBF Head Trainer via your Trainer Portal.
What do I learn in Fight School?
Fight School will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to teach boxing fitness and grow your career as a boxing fitness professional. Start with the EBF Trainer Certification, which will provide the foundation for additional Fight School certifications.
What do I learn in the EBF Trainer Certification course?
The EBF Trainer Certification covers the fundamental elements of boxing fitness, including boxing footwork, offense, defense, and combinations, as well as basic strength and conditioning exercises. The EBF Trainer Certification includes:
- FIGHT Class Series Fundamentals (Boxing, Exercises, Tools and Resources)
- Your choice of a Class Certification (Train, Bags, Road or Body)
The EBF Trainer Certification prepares you to teach the FIGHT at any EverybodyFights facility.
If I have other fitness certifications, can I earn Continuing Education Credits in Fight School?
Yes! The EBF Trainer Certification is recognized by NASM, AFAA and ACE. Earn the following CEUs for completing your certification:
- NASM: 0.7 CEUs
- AFAA: 7 CEUs
- ACE: 1.2 CECs
Do I have to attend a Certification Event to complete my EBF Trainer Certification?
Nope! Our quarterly Certification Events are recommended, but optional. They are an opportunity for you to complete tests in person to accelerate or complete the certification process. Certification Events are complimentary for Fight School students. To view upcoming events, please click here.
What will I learn at a Certification Event?
Certification Events will focus on teaching – you’ll learn how to teach our FIGHT Class and get experience leading a group. Certification Events are also an opportunity to complete tests in person, rather than via video uploads. Note! You must still watch the educational videos in your online Trainer Classroom to learn the movements on which you’ll be tested. We recommend completing as much of the learning online as possible before attending the event.
What happens after I complete my Certification?
You are ready to begin teaching boxing fitness anywhere! If you want to teach the EBF FIGHT Class series, you can contact an EBF Head Trainer via your Trainer Portal to inquire about trainer positions.
Who should get EBF Certified?
Fitness professionals and enthusiasts with a desire to learn the art of boxing and empower individuals to discover their inner fighter.
Is there a demand for EBF Trainers?
EverybodyFights is currently growing, with plans to expand and franchise globally. As such, the demand for EBF Trainers will continue to grow. The EBF Trainer Certification is your license to teach the FIGHT at any EverybodyFights location. Note! Because the EBF Trainer Certification is a specialty certificate, some EBF facilities (i.e. EBF BOX) may require a general group exercise certificate to teach at their facility. Be sure to inquire about the requirements to teach at a specific location.
Is there Continuing Education available?
Fight School continuing education includes Class Series Certifications and Specialty Certifications.
Class Certifications Specialty Certifications
- Mittwork Basics
- Mittwork Specialist

Do I receive anything for completing Fight School Continuing Education?
Bars are used to depict level of education and experience and are located on your online Trainer Profile. EBF Trainers can also become EBF Master Trainers by completing all four Class Certifications. Master Trainers will receive a unique badge on their profile.
Does my EBF Trainer Certification expire?
The EBF Trainer Certification is valid for one year. To renew your certification, you must complete one Fight School Continuing Education Course per year ($199).
EBF-certified trainers can purchase an Active Trainer License ($99/year), which includes the required Continuing Education course, as well as access to the EBF Trainer APP and recognition as an EBF Trainer through placement of a custom profile on the EBF Global Directory.
I already teach and/or personal train at a gym. Will I be able to teach the EBF FIGHT classes there if I become certified?
You may incorporate everything you learn about boxing fitness into your current classes or training sessions; however, your gym may not list the FIGHT Class Series (BAGS, TRAIN, BODY or ROAD) on their schedule unless they become an EBF Franchise Partner. Learn more about EBF Franchise here.
