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 Movement Training course is an effective CPD training course, giving you the skills you need to soar as a personal trainer.
Functional Movement Training allows you to work your muscles in different planes and building strength in stabiliser muscles as well as the main target muscle.
Get to grips with multi-planar movement, whole-body integration and ground reaction force training approaches using stability balls, weighted bags, medicine balls, agility ladders and wobble boards – all in one highly practical day.
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 movement training concepts can be applied within personal training, small group training, classes and boot camps, in the gym and outdoors.

You should also be physically fit, as this is a strenuous course.

Launched in 2011, the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) is the professional development body for the UK’s sport, fitness and physical activity sector and has been awarded chartered status by the Privy Council. CIMSPA provides leadership, support and empowerment for professionals working in sport and physical activity and is the strategic lead for professional development in the sector.
CIMSPA has been tasked by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), backed by Sport England and employers, with leading the sport and physical activity sectors workforce development programme. This will be achieved by creating a clear and rigorous set of employer-led standards for all sport and exercise professionals, with a similar clear and rigorous system for assessment, awarding and validating qualifications.
CIMSPA is recognised as the authoritative, single unified voice for the sector by government departments, key agencies and partners, including Sport England, Public Health England, ukactive, Sport and Recreation Alliance, Sporta and cCLOA. The institute has membership options for everyone working in, or interested in working in, the sport and physical activity world – from student and apprentice through to service director and CEO. CIMSPA already provides a route to chartered status for those working in leisure operations, and is developing similar routes for the whole of the sector. For more information go to www.cimspa.co.uk.
The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS) is a government backed system of self-regulation for all instructors, coaches, trainers and teachers involved in the exercise and fitness industry. Registration is achieved and maintained through qualifications and training programmes that are nationally recognised and are linked to the National Occupational Standards for exercise and fitness. For more information go to www.exerciseregister.org.
Each individual module within your training programme has a specific deadline or time-frame of completion that must be achieved in order to pass. 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 is 3 years from when you purchased.
We would ask how much time can you dedicate to your study? The more time available, the quicker you can complete your course/diploma. If you don’t have lots of time, we advise taking it step-by-step.
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.

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.

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.
