The Health and Fitness Institute forges partnership with Total Fitness to enhance personal training education and employment opportunities

01 Feb 2024
The Health and Fitness Institute (THFI) has announced a collaboration with Total Fitness / THFI
The Health and Fitness Institute (THFI) has announced a collaboration with Total Fitness, aiming to redefine the landscape of personal training education and employment prospects.

This innovative partnership is set to provide a unique and comprehensive approach to education, mentorship, and employment opportunities in the health and fitness industry. 

THFI, known for challenging the conventional norms in personal training certification, is committed to ensuring the long-term success and fulfilment of its graduates. Acknowledging the startling statistic that 60% of personal trainers leave the industry within 12 months after qualification, THFI's approach goes beyond the traditional box-ticking exercise to prepare learners for enduring careers in health and fitness. 

The partnership with Total Fitness encompasses various dimensions, showcasing a commitment to enriching the personal training journey for THFI graduates. 

Graduate Supply: 
THFI will work closely with Total Fitness to supply them with qualified graduates, contributing to the continuous expansion of their personal training team. This facet reflects the commitment to fostering ongoing growth within the fitness industry. 

Mentoring Program: 
Total Fitness will actively participate in THFI’s mentoring programme, allowing successful personal trainers from Total Fitness to share insights and best practices with THFI learners. This initiative aims to bridge the gap between education and real-world experience, providing valuable guidance for aspiring personal trainers. 

CPD Platform Access: 
Current personal trainers at Total Fitness will benefit from access to THFI’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) platform. This collaboration ensures that Total Fitness trainers can pursue ongoing education and skill enhancement through courses such as nutrition, strength and conditioning, wellness, and more. 

In selecting Total Fitness as a partner, THFI considered their robust personal training model, commitment to employee well-being, and shared values, including factors such as their existing average tenure of Personal Training Staff (PTS), with PTs averaging a four-year tenure. Total Fitness, with its 15 clubs across the North of England and Wales, stands out as an employer that values its staff, fosters a positive work environment, and aligns with THFI’s mission to provide learners with exceptional experiences and opportunities.  

The partnership is marked by a reciprocal relationship where Total Fitness adds value to THFI learners’ education, while THFI provides Total Fitness with access to a pool of qualified graduates. This unique approach sets the collaboration apart from traditional partnerships and emphasises a commitment to mutual growth and success. 

THFI distinguishes itself from competitors by prioritising a holistic and industry-first approach to personal training education. The partnership with Total Fitness exemplifies a commitment to students’ success beyond certification, offering a pathway to sustainable and rewarding careers. 

THFI co-founder, Dan Rees, said: “[Our] partnership with Total Fitness represents a groundbreaking approach to personal training education. We believe in creating lasting value for our graduates, and Total Fitness shares our vision for a thriving, supported, and successful personal training community.” 
 
Total Fitness’s Head of Personal Training, Richard Wilson, expressed excitement about the collaboration, stating, “We’re really happy to be working in partnership with The Health and Fitness Institute. At Total Fitness, our promise to our people is that more is possible, and this partnership with THFI showcases our commitment to that promise, providing the support and development to our team. As a company, we are dedicated to being passionate and discerning in our partnerships, and this collaboration with THFI is a perfect fit—a refreshing approach to challenging the norms in Personal Training Education. In return, we will offer all THFI graduates an interview for our open PT positions. 

“We are also excited to continuously build on this relationship with additional fit-for-purpose training such as the 'transformational coaching course'. Such courses will aid our vision in creating additional opportunities for our PTs to grow, and in turn provide additional products and services for our members to achieve their goals.” 

Total Fitness, with a membership base of over 95,000 individuals, is dedicated to improving the health and fitness of its members and providing the space and opportunities to achieve more than they thought possible.  The partnership with THFI reflects their commitment to sourcing the best talent and offering an unparalleled fitness experience for their members. 

The Health and Fitness Institute is a leading provider of personal training education, dedicated to preparing individuals for successful and enduring careers in the health and fitness industry. With a focus on comprehensive education, mentorship, and industry partnerships, THFI aims to redefine personal training education standards.

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)
