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.
I had a great time during my training. It was not easy but help was available to get me through. The practical week end sessions were invaluable. I would recommend Future Fit to anyone wanting to become a pilates instructor.

Future Fit Training is fantastic. From the moment I booked my Indoor Cycle Course the whole process was really smooth and everyone I emailed or spoke to was really helpful. On the day of the course, it was fantastic, I cannot thank Future Fit enough!

I signed up for the Total Immersion with Future Fit and so far have completed my Level 2 & 3 as well as many CPD courses, I just have some Level 4 courses left. Upon reflection of my training so far, I'm not sure that online learning is the best way to go as you don't get the hands-on experience that you really need to build confidence and I did feel a bot lost when I first started working in the industry. However, having said that I have always been very impressed with Future Fit prompt and reliable customer service.
