"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!

"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.

"An incredibly professional organisation…"

An incredibly professional organisation that deserves recognition for the quality of the training. It was made easy for me to qualify to Level 4 PT by use on online training to provide a foundation of knowledge, then supplemented by simply superb weekend workshops on various specific aspects - these workshops under promised and over delivered every single time through instructors that had a wealth of knowledge and experience and clearly demonstrated this in a professional manner.

"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.

"I did the level 3 Nutrition Advisor…"

I did the level 3 Nutrition Advisor Diploma with these guys. It was amazing, taught me everything I needed to know and has in turn made my income a lot higher. Recommended highly!!

Student success stories

Jacky Stevens

I chose to study with Future Fit because I liked the look of their course, the fact it was online and, having had an initial chat with an adviser, I liked the Future Fit approach. As it turned out, the style of learning was ideal for me. I enjoyed it and was surprised by the in-depth course content. I found the course stimulating, interesting and very thorough, with excellent teaching methods and support. I passed in April 2012 and embarked (part time initially) on a new career based on what I’d learnt with Future Fit.

I have my own complementary therapy business with my partner and I am now mainly a Bowen Technique Therapist, but continue to see at least four clients weekly for one-to-one nutritional weight management advice. I enjoy my work and find it very rewarding to help people reach their goals.

Are there any disadvantages to paying by instalments?

When paying by instalments you must ensure that you have banked enough in advance to cover the cost of the next course you wish to study in your diploma.

Do you price match?

No. Our prices are very competitive and you will receive more than just qualifications. In comparison, looking at the content of our courses and diplomas compared to others, we are confident that the quality and number of courses we offer outweigh those of other training providers.

For a more in-depth comparison with others, please download our Comparison Checklist.

What equipment will I need to study online?

You should find it very straightforward to study your e-learning. All you need is a PC, laptop or Mac, a reliable internet connection, headphones or speakers (some courses contain video), and a printer for printing resources (optional).

In order to get the best results from your e-learning, we recommend that you use a device that is less than four years old with a recent version of Windows or MacOS. We also suggest that you use Google Chrome as your default browser.

Our courses will run on smartphones and tablets. However, we strongly recommend that you use a computer or laptop as your main device for studying. Apart from the small screen on a smartphone, writing notes and case studies on a virtual keyboard can be frustrating. Also, streaming e-learning can be a drain on your battery and won’t provide an ideal viewing or learning experience.

In summary, a computer or laptop in a quiet room will enable you to get the best results from your studying.

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.

What kind of support and resources do you provide for online nutrition programmes?

Our e-learning courses are an engaging combination of text, images and video and also include a range of downloadable resources to enhance your studies. Our nutrition tutor support team are on hand by email and phone to answer any questions you may have and ensure you are fully supported and on track.
