"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.

Student Success Story...

Lynn Mcbrearty

Mind and Body Coach

Lynn’s interest in fitness and personal training has evolved over a period of time. As a runner, she was always suffering from niggling injuries and soon learnt that if she didn’t focus on strengthening the muscles, more time would be spent in the physio than out running. Having spent over 34 years in a corporate environment, she decided it was time for a career change and begun her journey with Future Fit Training. Since completing the Diploma in Advanced Anatomy and Physiology, Lynn has never looked back. She is now a Fitness Coach and decided to start her company called ‘A Fitter Life’.

I use the knowledge gained from the client psychology and the marketing courses on a daily basis. As soon as I talk to a potential client I know immediately what their attitude to exercise is, which is particularly useful when dealing with GP referrals
