    “Cannot fault this company!!”

    This company is fantastic for anybody who is starting out in the fitness industry! I completed my level 2 exercise to music course with them recently and will soon be moving onto my level 3 personal trainer.

    “HFE Training and Support!”

    My course tutor was professional and friendly all the way and always made me feel at ease. I have now gone onto another course with HFE and I will be doing my future training with them.I would recommend HFE to any one who is pursuing a career in fitness.

    “Pilates this summer!”

    I really enjoyed the course, it was hardwork and challenging but on line learning and tutor support is very good. The trainers at the weekend study days were great, they expected a high standard and role modelled this.

Welcome To HFE

Welcome to HFE, an award-winning training provider setting the platinum standard for fitness industry qualifications. Over the years we've earned our reputation for delivering unbeatable value that goes far and beyond what a student pays for their course. Our extensive and unlimited support comes as standard with every qualification and our innovative, interactive teaching and learning resources are second to none. Our commitment to quality is firm and we are unwavering in our desire to see our students succeed in their training and future employment.

HFE specialises in personal trainer, exercise to music, yoga, Pilates, special populations and exercise specialist qualifications. We go far and beyond the standard framework for these courses, offering our students the chance to gain a broader and deeper level of knowledge, skills and confidence. When our graduates go out into the world, they are not only incredibly employable, but also desired by the biggest gym, health club and leisure chains in the country. We also instil a confidence in them that they can go on to craft a successful business centred on themselves.

Even before a student enrols and gains access to learning materials, our dedicated team of technical experts work tirelessly to ensure our content-rich lessons plans, training and e-learning programmes are up to date and technically accurate. The results really do speak for themselves. In a typical month, support tutors spend well over 130 hours on the phone, make nearly 1,000 outbound calls and receive almost 900 inbound calls. This has led to 87% of our students passing their theory exams first time and a 97% positive response rate from learners accessing our learning systems.

Everything we do is in service of helping our students and commercial partners. 'Become more' isn’t just a catchy slogan; it's a statement of intent. Those two simple words embody the values and attitudes we adhere to each and every day. Our students and staff alike are encouraged to commit to a programme of lifelong learning, a path that guarantees personal success and fulfilment.
