HNFC Academy

HNFC Academy, founded by Ioannis Pennas M.Sc., stands as a beacon of excellence in fitness and health education in Greece and Cyprus. Ioannis Pennas, armed with a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Science from Athens Kapodistrian University and a Master’s degree from the medical school of the same institution, is a dedicated fitness professional with an impressive array of certifications from renowned organizations such as NASM, EXOS, FMS, CETI, and more. His journey began with a simple yet impactful realization: the need for internationally recognized personal training certifications in Greece.

In 2010, while striving to work in the UK and the USA, Ioannis faced a roadblock. These countries required professional certification in personal training, a requirement conspicuously absent from the Greek market at the time. Fueled by his passion for fitness and determination to bring world-class education to Greece and Cyprus, Ioannis embarked on a transformative journey. He ventured to Los Angeles, USA, where he studied Personal Training through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine). This experience opened his eyes to the immense value of such certifications.

With this newfound knowledge and a burning desire to bridge the educational gap in Greece and Cyprus, Ioannis returned to his homeland. He established HNFC, the Hellenic Network of Fitness Certifications, and began collaborating with some of the biggest names in the global fitness industry. HNFC became the exclusive distributor for prestigious organizations like NASM (USA), AFAA (USA), FMS (Functional Movement Systems), EXOS (formerly Athlete Performance), Mike Boyle Institution, CETI (Cancer Exercise Specialist), and STOTT Pilates.

These partnerships have enabled HNFC Academy to offer an array of educational certifications to aspiring fitness professionals in Greece and Cyprus. Whether on-site or online, HNFC Academy provides access to gold-standard certifications in personal training, corrective exercise, pilates methods, nutrition, and strength and conditioning. These certifications are not only prerequisites for success but are globally recognized as the highest standard in the fitness industry.

HNFC Academy’s commitment to excellence, fueled by Ioannis Pennas’s unwavering passion and expertise, has not only transformed the fitness education landscape in Greece and Cyprus but also empowered countless trainers and coaches to reach their full potential. By offering identical educational workshops as those found in the USA, HNFC Academy has become the trusted destination for fitness education in the region.

As HNFC Academy continues to evolve and expand its offerings, it remains dedicated to the pursuit of excellence and the promotion of health and fitness in Greece, Cyprus, and beyond. It stands as a testament to the power of vision, determination, and a commitment to raising the bar in the fitness industry.
