    Is there a deadline to complete my training?

    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.

    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/diploma. 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.

    Student Success Story...

    Mark Laws

    Personal Trainer, Speaker & Author

    Mark entered the fitness industry with an element of sheer luck. It was a series of fortune events that led him to Future Fit and the excellent knowledge of the person on the other end of the phone that persuaded him it was the job he had been waiting for…and they were right. Having learnt all the foundations to enter the industry, his life changed completely His first job was as a Gym Instructor at Virgin Active in Leeds. It was during this time he was introduced to kettlebells and fell head over heels in love with them. Mark’s career flourished from this stage on and he is now a personal trainer, educator, columnist, and author!

    The key advice I would give is to never overcomplicate things unless you have too. NEVER stop learning. Eat, sleep and breath fitness and keep your fingers crossed that you are in the right place at the right time!
