      I have studied with HFE over the last year or so and have completed the ETM and currently finishing my pilates level 3. I have found the courses well delivered and received plenty of support from the tutor who is on the end of the phone as much as you want them to be.

      I have just completed this course with HFE as a progression from the level 2 Gym Instructor cert. I have found the course excellent all round.

      The HFE trainers/tutors are awesome and it has great online support. I like to get on at things in my own pace, so intensive learning was not for me. I've really enjoyed the online learning process.

      Definitely recommended HFE, Martyn my tutor was amazing and very helpful and fast replying to emails. The course was enjoyable and the location was nice as it had a gym work with too.
