Aspiring personal trainers are guaranteed a job interview with some of the world’s leading fitness brands if they enrol with The Health and Fitness Institute (THFI).

Recognized as a leader within the fitness education sector, THFI is on a mission to make world-class education accessible and affordable to anyone looking to obtain professional qualifications and embark on a career in the health and fitness industry.

THFI acknowledges the lack of differentiation among the numerous certification options and the common disengagement that occurs once a certificate is obtained.

It is a startling, sobering statistic that 60% of personal trainers leave the industry within a year after they qualify. A lack of career guidance and support, post-qualification, means many PTs quit before they have the chance to become successful.

That's why, unlike other fitness providers who are simply looking to churn out qualifications to aspiring personal trainers – with no aftercare whatsoever – the service THFI provides does not stop when someone completes a course.

THFI not only equips its students with globally recognized personal training qualifications but also guarantees job interviews with some of the world’s leading fitness brands, such as Ultimate Performance and Total Fitness.

The providers have also partnered with a recruitment agency to help its students secure jobs in the health and fitness sector post-qualification. THFI staff will continue to offer guidance, support, and mentorship in those difficult early days as newly qualified fitness professionals navigate their new career path.

Additionally, through their ‘learning through digital technology’ approach, which provides learners dedicated 24/7 support and the ability to learn anywhere in the world, The Health and Fitness Institute will also offer a variety of professional development courses aimed at broadening knowledge.

Want to build your own business? There are a range of Continual Professional Development (CPD) courses to further enhance your skillset and develop multiple revenue streams for your business. Need guidance as you take your initial steps into the sector? The Institute presents a Business Accelerator Programme that helps budding personal trainers establish themselves in the early stages of their careers.

Daniel Rees, Co-Founder of The Health and Fitness Institute, said: “With our 12-month mentoring programs, you’ll have a world-class team with decades of experience in your corner, helping you find a job and settle into a career with endless earning potential. Our team of tutors have all walked in your shoes as personal trainers, so they understand the needs you have and challenges you face.”

THFI goes above and beyond with their Mentor Support program, guiding their graduates into outstanding careers by covering employability prospects, communication skills, customer service knowledge, clientele understanding, and marketing skills.

Daniel added: “Operators across the industry are struggling to fill vacancies, and we are uniquely positioned to bridge that gap. Made up of some of the most exceptional educators in the industry, we have forged partnerships that our competitors simply cannot match.

“Our reputation for excellence and industry recognition inspire trust in our partners, and they know we are passionate about finding the perfect fit for their business. The response to our vision has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are excited to make a real impact in the health and fitness sector.

“The Health and Fitness Institute's goal is to create a comprehensive network of career opportunities, offering guest sessions, podcasts, and highlighting potential career paths to their learners. Our learners' success is at the heart of everything we do, and this approach prepares individuals for employment and guarantees interviews, providing peace of mind to focus on studies and career development.”

The 16-week program consists of both live and recorded sessions, offering flexibility for learners to dip in and out. With a focus on bite-size learning, sessions range from 5-30 minutes to accommodate different learning styles, including shorter attention spans and the desire for quick content.

As part of this innovative venture, THFI is also offering students enrolling in the upcoming months an opportunity to reclaim their entire course fees. Students can also benefit from a 15% enrolment discount using the code provided.

The Health and Fitness Institute is pleased to be working with Active IQ as one of its Awarding Organizations. Active IQ is one of the UK’s leading recognized awarding organizations that offer qualifications in the sport and physical activity sector. Active IQ is not limited to the UK; they are also well-known for their qualification awards overseas. Active IQ is recognized by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA), the professional development body for the UK’s sport and physical activity sector. This recognition ensures that Active IQ qualifications meet industry standards and are valued by employers.

Tara Dillon, CEO of the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMPSA) said: “CIMSPA has worked with the team behind THFI for several years, so we are pleased and proud to see that experience being used to support our aspiring and current fitness professionals in this new venture.

“Dan is an 'industry veteran,' and with his vast experience, we know that our visions for the future of the professional workforce, and the continual improvement of educational standards, are perfectly aligned. We look forward to seeing their work and its contribution for the good of the sports and physical activity sector in the future.”

The Health and Fitness Institute understands the importance of affordability without compromising on quality. That's why they have partnered with 'Pay Later' and 'Ideal for Finance' to offer their customers the option of monthly instalments over 1-5 years.

Daniel said: “We want to provide a premium brand experience at an affordable cost, without relying on discounts that could be disingenuous. Our goal is to build trust with our customers by being transparent about our pricing and delivering on our promise of quality.

“So, whether you want to scale your own business or join forces with a world-class personal training business, the sooner you get started – the better.”

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)
