Soar as a Personal Trainer with our Functional Training CPD course.
This course is endorsed by CIMSPA.
You’re more likely to retain your clients, earn referrals and get results if you can keep them engaged with interesting and varied training programmes. The Functional Training course is an effective CPD training course, giving you the skills you need to soar as a personal trainer.
Functional Training allows you to work your body as an integrated unit to build strength, improve performance and reduce the risk of injury.
Get to grips with multi-planar movement, whole-body integration and ground reaction force principles, through interactive online lessons and a highly practical workshop.
Having been in the ACSM’s top 10 trends for the past few years, having the knowledge and skills to coach and programme functional training will keep you on top of your game.
Don’t just learn a fixed list of exercises – instead understand the principles that will allow you to design your own, infinite library of moves. You will also learn how to use modern functional equipment commonly seen in fitness environments.
Learn the fundamental ways the human body moves to enable you to optimise performance, improve biomechanics and reduce injury-risk.
Functional training concepts can be applied within personal training, small group training, classes and boot camps, in the gym and outdoors.

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.

Very good and strong courses, with a lot of useful materials for our practical work with clients. The Tests were very strong but good and correct. Good organisation, good teachers, and successful manager of the Nutrition school. I will recommend this company to anyone.

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.

Becoming a personal trainer isn’t cheap. It’s an investment, which can pay for itself if you come out the other side with the requisite skills to earn a living as a PT. For that reason, it’s not worth cutting corners. When searching for training providers FFT looked like the obvious choice. They had excellent reviews, have been providing expert tuition for 24 years, have a 97% student satisfaction rate and were named UK Active "Training Provider of the Year" in 2016 and 2017. Their part-time online course also meant I could study at home around freelance projects and work at my own pace.
