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.
HFE made the level 2 gym instructing course a really enjoyable experience with help from start to finish. Gil is a brilliant tutor and very understanding and always checked in and offered help whenever it was needed.
