This course is suitable for anyone who gives nutrition advice as well as those wishing to study for their own interest.

Understand the Different Types of Plant-Based Diets

The proportion of people following plant-based diets is rapidly increasing. An understanding of what these diets entail is essential in order to give appropriate nutrition advice.

"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!

"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!
