THFI (The Health and Fitness Institute) proudly announces its recent recognition by CIMSPA (Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity) with an esteemed 'enhancing' rating. This distinction not only signifies THFI's unwavering commitment to providing top-tier educational experiences in the fitness sector but also serves as inspiration for smaller organisations and those up-and-coming in the industry.

THFI's level of excellence sets a standard that others should aspire to achieve.
CIMSPA (Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity) is the professional body for the sport and physical activity workforce, ensuring excellence in education and training to support career development in the sector.

CIMSPA's rigorous quality assurance framework assesses education providers across various criteria to ensure they meet and exceed industry standards.

"We are thrilled to receive the CIMSPA 'enhancing' rating, which serves as a testament to our relentless pursuit of quality and innovation in fitness education," said Dan Rees, Managing Director at THFI. "This achievement reflects our team's tireless efforts to provide exceptional learning experiences that empower individuals to thrive in their careers."

THFI has consolidated its standing by employing a multifaceted approach that actively prioritises and supports students across various avenues, resulting in its commendable recognition and ratings.

Meeting Employer Needs: THFI identified and addressed gaps in graduate readiness for fitness roles by introducing a business accelerator program integrated into enhanced PT courses.

Developed in collaboration with industry leaders like Total Fitness and Ultimate Performance, this initiative aligns courses with specific employer requirements, enhancing graduate readiness for recruitment and retention.

Sequenced Learning: THFI meticulously sequenced its courses to ensure comprehensive knowledge transfer. Through diverse communication channels such as email, phone, live webinars, support sessions, and community chats, THFI facilitated effective learning experiences, equipping graduates with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills essential for success in the fitness industry.

Opportunities for Continued Learning: Beyond course completion, THFI provided extensive support to graduates, including assistance with CV building, access to employment opportunities, CPD opportunities, and guidance on CIMSPA membership. Additionally, THFI's 12-month mentorship program post-course completion facilitated ongoing professional development, enabling students to thrive in their careers.

Inclusive Organisational Culture: THFI actively fostered an inclusive organisational culture and education delivery. Collaborative efforts with entities like the UK Sports Institute led to the creation of career opportunities for athletes transitioning from sports careers.

Furthermore, THFI's involvement in the development of apps aimed at supporting PTs and gym instructors in working with disabled clients exemplifies its commitment to promoting inclusivity within the fitness sector.

These initiatives underscore THFI's dedication to meeting CIMSPA standards and providing learners with high-quality education and training tailored to industry needs. By addressing specific challenges, fostering continuous learning opportunities, and promoting inclusivity, THFI serves as a beacon of excellence in the fitness education landscape, inspiring smaller organisations and those up-and-coming to strive for similar levels of achievement.

THFI (The Health and Fitness Institute) is a leading provider of fitness education, dedicated to delivering exceptional learning experiences and fostering industry-ready professionals.

Testimonial
"Wow! I spent ages shopping around for a personal training course and am so glad I chose THFI as it feels incredibly personal, professional and structured.

"I’ve found that the course and tutors really keep you accountable and motivate you to ensure you keep a close eye on course content and digest it properly.

"For someone that has always struggled to read, webinars are certainly the way forward. There are live and pre-recorded webinars and of course you can watch all of the material back.br>
THFI cover all types of learning styles which further demonstrates how personalised it is."

– Olivia, Trainee PT (via Trust Pilot)
Testimonial
"I’m only 19, so deciding the right course for me was really difficult but spoke to a someone called Hakeem who made it really easy to understand what would benefit me and it was really good that I was actually talking to someone that was a personal trainer too.

"I decided to choose THFI because of the support I was going to receive and the help making sure I was qualified to a high level. Best decision!"

– EJ, Trainee Wellness Coach (via Trust Pilot)
Testimonial
"I was super keen to become a PT and The Health and Fitness Institute explained everything I needed to know. All the questions I asked, were answered and I was not rushed into making any decisions there and then, as it was big commitment.

"I opened up my course in the learning platform and downloaded the app, so I started learning straight away, A&P was tough but THFI laid it out in really easy digestible chunks. I have more to complete but wanted to recommend THFI to anyone wanting to become a PT. Thank you"

– Reuben, Trainee PT (via Trust Pilot)
