"Amazing course, top tutors, Highly Recommend!!"

I have been studying with Future Fit Training for the past year and can honestly say how amazing they are as a training provider. They cover every basis, you get excellent support from the tutors, the online training is intense and thorough, the workshops are fantastic and the tutors themselves are extremely knowledgeable.

"An incredibly professional organisation…"

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.

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.
