into a structured learning system that will take you from wherever you are now to a thriving practice in one year… at a cost far less than a 4-year university degree.

Each month you will receive a combination of CHEK Learning materials specially selected from our:

Icon  Advanced Training Programs
Icon  Exclusive Online Seminars

Plus you’ll participate in Group Mentoring sessions to answer your questions and cement what you’ve learned.

Year 1 can now be completed entirely online!

Study from home and still experience the LIVE classroom setting through our CHEK vClasses.

Using the latest technology, the CHEK Institute can bring our live classes to your home. Rather than just a live feed, CHEK vClass makes you a part of the class no matter where you are.

As an Academy student, you will have crystal clear content and a dedicated moderator on-location to ensure you can participate as if you were there in-person.

Learning doesn’t stop in the classroom. Each month, you’ll join your fellow Academy students in Group Mentorship sessions run by experienced CHEK Professionals who will show you they implemented CHEK techniques in their practice and help you to do the same.

There is always time for questions, so you get the specific help you need to succeed. It’s also a chance to reconnect with the friends you’ll make from around the world!


Being self-employed can be lonely! The Pandemic has only made this worse.

The CHEK Academy is so much more than a holistic learning system. It’s also a connected and supportive community, linking health professionals around the world. Our students get together, visit each other from different countries, build successful business partnerships together, and even get married! Yes, we have had two marriages as part of the academy.

The CHEK Academy is a genuine Tribe of holistic health professionals that respect and support each other.


The CHEK Academy business education has been designed specifically for our CHEK professionals. That’s why it works!

We provide students with the knowledge and tools to build a successful business using time-tested systems that can be implemented step-by-step, including

Icon  How to write a business plan
Icon  Setting your rates
Marketing your business

In addition to the ‘how to’, we equip students with tangible assets so they can start growing their business straight away.


Changing your career can be daunting if you need to maintain your current income while you re-train.

Our program is designed to fit your studies around your other commitments.

On average, the CHEK Academy requires 6-7 hours of study commitment per week. So you can follow your dream of a rewarding career as a CHEK Practitioner while working in your current job.

When you're ready to make the move you'll have everything you need!

I feel very confident that I can deliver a high level of information. That wouldn’t be possible if I didn’t have the foundation of the CHEK system. It served me so well over the years. Oliver Cardenas, CHEK Academy Student
Paul Chek takes thing to such another level, such a complete level and ties things all together. It’s incredible. Greg Muller, CHEK Student, Managing Director: Lead the Pack & Pure Athlete
I realized that I wanted a more holistic approach to my training and the CHEK material has given me exactly that. Just coming out of HLC 1 I have the right questions to ask for some of the problems my clients are facing and that’s powerful. Matthew Adams, CHEK Student
The CHEK Academy has given me the knowledge to thrive in my career as a health coach. It’s given me all the tools I need to help other people.

Even if there’s a thousand other coaches, you have something special in yourself and your experiences are going to ignite your fire and drive your success… The CHEK Institute has allowed me to understand that and tap into my potential. Amber Stazenski, CHEK Academy Student

The CHEK Academy is a way for us to help those students who truly want to excel as highly skilled practitioners. It is not a route to simply gaining qualifications to be displayed on a wall.

Placement in each year of the CHEK Academy is strictly limited to those who pass our application process.
We welcome applications from students of all levels
of experience (even no experience!) in the health and fitness professions.

Most importantly: the desire to learn with an open mind.

We are not looking for previous experience or qualifications. Many current CHEK Academy students have never completed any fitness or health qualification prior to joining in Year 1.

As a first step, each student must complete the online application form.

Once we receive your application, you will be contacted to arrange a telephone or online interview at a scheduled time with the CHEK Academy Coordinator. The interview is a chance for you to ask questions about the Academy, for us to see if you are a good fit for the Academy, and vice versa!

Due to the limited availability of places on the CHEK Academy globally, we will not be able to admit every student who applies. Admission to the Academy is based on more than simple qualifications – we are looking for individuals who will bring enthusiasm and a positive energy to the whole of the Academy!


Each semester we offer three partial scholarships – one each in North America, Europe, and the South Pacific.

Scholarships will pay for 50% of your Academy Fees for your first academic year.

1. Recipients of the scholarship must pay their Academy deposit in full along with their 1st month’s payment before the scholarship is applied.
2. Current Academy students are eligible for the scholarship, though they must complete the steps above, except for completing an application.
3. The winners will be announced mid September.


STEP 1: Record a video, 1-minute maximum length, answering the following question: What dream will the CHEK Academy help you to achieve?

STEP 2: Upload your video to the form below and fill in your contact information.

STEP 3: Share your video to Facebook or Instagram using the tags @chekintitute and #chekacademy22


Simply complete the online application form. After you have completed your application, a member of the CHEK Academy team will contact you by phone to arrange an interview.

If you have any questions about the CHEK Academy, our courses or your application, you can request a callback from one of our career advisors before you apply.

Paul Chek, Founder of CHEK Institute

A world-renowned expert in holistic health, rehabilitation and human performance, Paul Chek has been changing the lives of clients and students for over three decades. By treating the body as a whole system and finding the root cause of a problem, the unique, integrated ‘CHEK approach’ has been successful where traditional treatments and methods have consistently failed.

Paul’s system recognizes that the body is more than a bundle of joints and levers; the musculoskeletal system is not separate from the mind, emotions, hormones and organs. Every one of us is unique and, as such, the right fitness or rehabilitation program must consider the individual as a whole.

In 1995, Paul founded the CHEK Institute to train a new generation of CHEK Practitioners and satisfy the ever-growing demand from clients looking for a ‘better way’ to achieve optimum health and vitality.

Paul is a prolific author and the host of the immensely popular podcast, Living 4D with Paul Chek. He is sought after as an international presenter and consultant for organizations such as the Chicago Bulls, Australia’s Canberra Raiders and the U.S. Air Force Academy. He has produced more than 50 videos, six books and 16 advanced-level courses.

Gavin Jennings, Founder of CHEK Academy and CHEK Clinic

Gavin Jennings is the CEO of CHEK Institute and the founder of CHEK Academy. He is also the founder of the first CHEK Clinic where he employs a team of clinicians and CHEK Practitioners.

Gavin has spent three decades as a business owner and is a licensed CHEK Practitioner who worked in the fitness industry since 2000. Students of the CHEK Academy benefit from his broad business experience and creative insights.

“The CHEK Academy is a dream come true for me as Founder of the CHEK Institute. Students from around the world can now be taught the CHEK Holistic approach while being mentored by the very best CHEK Practitioners in the world. Graduates are highly-skilled practitioners equipped with the technical skills and business know-how to create a very profitable career helping a LOT of people!”
