We promise to help you choose the training programme that’s right for you, try to answer all your questions and offer you expert advice on what it takes to become a Personal Trainer, Pilates teacher or Nutrition Adviser.

Once you begin training, your tutors will be there for you, giving you every encouragement and guiding you through your studies until you qualify.

Designed to fit around your life

Our courses comprise either face-to-face practical workshops held over one or more weekends, self-study e-learning courses or a combination of the two. This means you can continue to work and earn while studying to become a personal trainer, Pilates instructor or nutrition adviser, unlike full-time training courses.

94% of our students are extremely happy with their experience on our practical courses and 96% totally satisfied with our e-learning courses. We promise to support you at every step of the way, throughout your training and beyond.

The creation of quality fitness professionals has always been paramount to us. Before our launch in 1993, there was a clear need for better training, higher standards and for more consistency and value in qualifications across the industry as a whole. So, Future Fit Training was born with the mission to educate and create fitness professionals who would thrive in the fitness industry and raise the standards throughout gyms and health clubs across the UK.

"Amazing course, top tutors, Highly Recommend!!"

I have been studying with Future Fit Training for the past year and can honestly say how amazing they are as a training provider. They cover every basis, you get excellent support from the tutors, the online training is intense and thorough, the workshops are fantastic and the tutors themselves are extremely knowledgeable.

"Excellent Pilates Course"

The Pilates Matwork course was detailed, practical and challenging. The course content was delivered in a variety of ways i.e. online learning and face-to-face suiting learning styles. Scott and his team were very helpful at the end of the phone/online. I was lucky enough to walk straight into a Pilates teaching job as soon as I qualified. Thank-you FutureFit!

"Future Fit Training is fantastic"

Future Fit Training is fantastic. From the moment I booked my Indoor Cycle Course the whole process was really smooth and everyone I emailed or spoke to was really helpful. On the day of the course, it was fantastic, I cannot thank Future Fit enough!

"The best education out there"

Did my level 3 personal trainer course with Futurefit. The curriculum is well structured and comprehensive, their online learning and lessons are far superior than other providers. You can get a qualification for cheaper and in a shorter time elsewhere but will never get the deep knowledge what would make you better than an average personal trainer.

"Future fit training programme was very…"

Future Fit training programme was very straight forward, but I felt I was missing out by not having any hands-on experience with an actual coach/tutor. A lot of my marks were lower than they could have been due to not fully understanding the subject or item as well as I should, but not having a quick reference point available to verify anything was a drawback.

"Overall good experience with Future Fit."

I signed up for the Total Immersion with Future Fit and so far have completed my Level 2 & 3 as well as many CPD courses, I just have some Level 4 courses left. Upon reflection of my training so far, I'm not sure that online learning is the best way to go as you don't get the hands-on experience that you really need to build confidence and I did feel a bot lost when I first started working in the industry. However, having said that I have always been very impressed with Future Fit prompt and reliable customer service.

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?

There’s a lot to consider, and you’re bound to have some questions.

How recognised is my course?

The qualification you’ll receive at the end of your course will be awarded by VTCT, which is a Government-approved awarding organisation that develops vocational systems of qualifications. Our courses are also fully REPs and CIMSPA approved. Future Fit Training is actually a founding member of REPs. Membership of REPs enables fitness professionals to prove they have attained an industry recognised level of skill, knowledge and competence in their chosen field of expertise. Being CIMSPA certified means you will work in a respected industry, where standards are regulated, and your qualifications are valued.

What is CIMSPA?

Launched in 2011, the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) is the professional development body for the UK’s sport, fitness and physical activity sector and has been awarded chartered status by the Privy Council. CIMSPA provides leadership, support and empowerment for professionals working in sport and physical activity and is the strategic lead for professional development in the sector.

CIMSPA has been tasked by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), backed by Sport England and employers, with leading the sport and physical activity sectors workforce development programme. This will be achieved by creating a clear and rigorous set of employer-led standards for all sport and exercise professionals, with a similar clear and rigorous system for assessment, awarding and validating qualifications.

CIMSPA is recognised as the authoritative, single unified voice for the sector by government departments, key agencies and partners, including Sport England, Public Health England, ukactive, Sport and Recreation Alliance, Sporta and cCLOA. The institute has membership options for everyone working in, or interested in working in, the sport and physical activity world – from student and apprentice through to service director and CEO. CIMSPA already provides a route to chartered status for those working in leisure operations, and is developing similar routes for the whole of the sector. For more information go to

What is REP’s?

The Register of Exercise Professionals (REP’s) is a government backed system of self-regulation for all instructors, coaches, trainers and teachers involved in the exercise and fitness industry. Registration is achieved and maintained through qualifications and training programmes that are nationally recognised and are linked to the National Occupational Standards for exercise and fitness. For more information go to

What is CPD?

To maintain REPs membership, members will need to earn 24 CPD points every 24 months. CIMSPA members require 10 points per year.

Points can be gained through relevant qualifications, awards and courses. The great news is that many Future Fit Training modules will award you with these vital REPs and CIMSPA CPD credits – click the Health & Fitness Courses link to see what courses you can take.

How old do I have to be to take a course with you?

Anyone from the age of 16 can enrol and complete any of our non-practical e-learning courses. Practical courses can only be attended on or after your 18th birthday but can be enrolled on and booked in advance of this.

Nb. Many gyms will accept applicants of 16 years of age, but be aware that if you are planning to work outside of clubs or leisure centres as a Personal Trainer, an Exercise to Music Instructor or a Pilates Teacher, you may not be eligible for the required insurance until you are 18 years old or over.

For more information on course entry requirements and admissions please contact one of our Careers Advisers who will be happy to answer any of your questions.

How much prior knowledge or experience do I need?

There are no formal or mandatory requirements, other than being at least 16 years old.
It would be beneficial if you had experience of weight management and nutrition by attending professional classes. If you don't have the experience, that's not a problem - you will just need to ensure that you give yourself more time to complete the home-study activities.

What is the price and how can I pay?

It depends on which diploma/course you are looking at enrolling on. Below are some standard options available to pay for your course.

  • Pay as you learn
    - Lowest deposit - start training from only £175
    - Spread your payments over a number of months to suit your budget
    - Benefit from our lowest ever monthly payments
  • Pay a deposit then settle the balance
  • Pay in full
  • Pay using a Professional Career Development Loan
We offer other ways to fund your training and we also accept ELCAS for Armed Forces personnel.
