Improve your Skills with advanced training concepts

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.

Cutting Edge Principles

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.

Unlimited Exercise Potential

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.

Movement Pattern-Based Training

Learn the fundamental ways the human body moves to enable you to optimise performance, improve biomechanics and reduce injury-risk.

Wide Application

Functional training concepts can be applied within personal training, small group training, classes and boot camps, in the gym and outdoors.

Is there a deadline to complete my training?

The aim of the deadlines are to encourage you to succeed and ensure that you become qualified. The overall deadline to complete all your courses will be dependent on the courses you have purchased. Please refer back to your enrollment forms and terms and conditions to see the deadlines.

How long will the course take? How many hours should I study for per week?

We would ask how much time can you dedicate to your study? The more time available, the quicker you can complete your course. If you don’t have lots of time, we advise taking it step-by-step.

"Excellent customer service from Scott Bolwell"

I recently enrolled onto the Pilates teacher training course with Future Fit. The career advisor I spoke with throughout the process was Scott Bolwell. I really must say I was so impressed with the level of customer service I received from Scott right from the very beginning. When I first called through on the phone I had a lot of questions and Scott was very patient and thorough.

"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.

"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!

Student Success Story...

Sam Rider

Fitness Journalist, Copywriter & Brand Consultant

Sam Rider is a freelance journalist and personal trainer, regularly contributing to Men’s Health, Gentlemen’s Journal, Welltodo, the Huffington Post and The Telegraph. In 2015, Sam turned freelance and used the opportunity to pursue his ambition and study for the level 3 personal training qualification.

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.
