Intro

After gaining a qualification, personal trainers and other fitness professionals are faced with a choice of career paths and it usually comes down to being a salaried employee or being self-employed. The latter is favoured by many as it puts a fitness professional in control of their own destiny, allowing them to create the fitness business they want to.

While being self-employed is the more popular route, it’s important to not to underestimated just how important it is to get business basics rights. Unfortunately, there are fitness professionals who often overlook the fundamentals and this could go some way to explaining why 1 in 3 UK businesses fail within the first three years.

One of the many benefits of this course is that it can be completed exclusively online, there’s no practical attendance required.

    I recently completed my level 2 Gym Instructor course with HFE and absolutely loved it. I chose HFE as I work full time and wanted to fit this course around my current job. I signed up on their website, which I think gives great information and clearly indicates what you can expect.

    I was so happy with HFE, their teachers and their support team that I enrolled for another training in Pilates. Thank you for your help. I'm finally a fully happy yoga teacher.
