I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I have been practising meditation for a few years and this course helped to expand and develop my knowledge and practice. The trainer was excellent. She was very informative, knowledgeable and the meditations that we did on the day were very enjoyable. I came away with a clear idea of how I can incorporate what I learned in to my classes, and feel much more confident to do so.
The Fitt Pilates Small Equipment course was really interesting and useful in order to add variety and offer adaptations in my classes, overall the workshop was excellent – Cristina – 12th March 2016
I have attended a number of Fitt Pilates CPD workshops with Marie Claire, the trainer, who is very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I come away from every session absolutely buzzing with ideas for my classes and feeling re-energised about my teaching. I gain so much information about what we teach and how we teach which gives me confidence to deliver a better class.
All of the 1 day training courses were great and Jodie and the other instructors were fab.
It was a really interesting course and evident that Marie Claire, like I, also has a real interest for Meditation and it’s numerous benefits. Which she enthusiastically instilled upon the entire group throughout the day. She is a real credit to your company.
Jodie was a great Indoor Cycling Tutor and I loved the course and I have done a bit of team teaching and I am doing my first solo class
This was a brilliant well-structured course which was really very enjoyable. I have already recommended FITT to others and think it is very well priced for the amount of learning and knowledge which I was surrounded with during the qualification process.
Marie-Claire: Thanks for all of your help this last weekend I feel I’ve learned lots already which is great. You are all so knowledgable in this area so I feel lucky to be tutored by you all as it makes me strive to be so thorough as well.
I thought the venue was excellent and Jen was absolutely lovely. It was very clear from the start of the course that Jen had excellent teaching skills and that she was very open to comments. She has exactly the type of personality I would expect of a Yoga and Meditation instructor.
Thoroughly enjoyed both level 1 and 2 reformer. Thank you Marie Claire for imparting so much of your knowledge and experience to us all. Felt able to ask as many questions as needed without being made to feel ignorant! Just wish I’d done my mat work training with you.
Big respect for MarieClaire, her knowledgeable teacher training, the course was great….. it has given me some realy useful extras to incorportae into each of the various levels of classes I teach.
Loved your small equipment workshop on Sunday – really useful and informative.
Went straight out on Monday and taught most of your Dyna band moves plus some old stuff of mine to smooth it all through – they loved it – thank you.
I would like to register my enthusiasm for the day, content and most of all YOU x
Love your style of blending facts and info with humor and common sense – you really are very talented – but then you probably already know that!!
I Want to do the standing Pilates – Thank-you MarieClaire and the Fitt team.
Just wanted to say I enjoyed the spin course today, considering I’ve never done spinning before Jodie really put me at ease and was very good at explaining everything and giving me the confidence I need to teach a class. She’s an excellent instructor and a real credit to you.
As per usual yesterday was fantastic. Jodie was a great instructor, great course structure and most enjoyable course. Thank you all.
Quite a new customer to Fitt but so glad I found you. Every one course I have been on has been such a high standard, I had John last time and Heidi this time, both fantastic tutors!! I have been on other courses and the tutors have been nowhere near as friendly and approachable. I ask a lot of questions and they never make me feel silly. Sadly I do lack in confidence when it comes to being an instructor but your tutors never treat me any differently and are always encouraging. Great course structure. Can’t fault Fitt training. Thank you.
Pilates training has really been useful with my Personal Training clients. All, at some time, have suffered from back and neck problems, primarily due to stress in the workplace. Two who had physiotherapy were given Pilates exercises to do at home to aid their recovery. Being qualified in Pilates, I was able to continue with their sessions, either switching to Pilates or modifying the PT exercises. Both recovered and are still training with me after two and half years! Proof that the Personal Training and Pilates disciplines can work side by side!
The venue was great and I was impressed that we had full use of spin studio for the day and yes I could still walk the next day! I found the whole day hugely beneficial, plenty to learn and take in and all delivered from a tutor who had a wide knowledge base and breadth of experience. I feel inspired.
The knowledge, energy and enthusiasm displayed by Tamara was second to none, very inspiring indeed. I wish I had enrolled for my PT training with your company.
A very well run course which demonstrated a number of ways in which to run a circuit class. Highly motivated tutor who clearly has vast experience in the industry.
I was initially worried about the technical aspects of the course but John made it easy to understand and grasp the concept of the Kettlebell. I would definitely recommend FITT CPD courses to other Personal Trainers.
Really interesting workshop and I was so pleased at my development as a learner when it came to talking about the attachments of the pectoralis minor muscle using plasticine in a group. I found this next to impossible to understand or explain in a presentation at the start of my Pilates training. I am so grateful to the patience and support of both Tamara and Marie-Claire over these past four years.
The course was informative and well-constructed. The class size was big enough to learn from each other but not so big as to get lost in the group. The teaching style was fun yet concise. I am already including what I have learnt into my sessions and the clients love it.
The course on Friday was superb. The tutor was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to which made the group relax and interact more readily. I enjoyed the day as a whole and have taken a lot of ideas and concepts I had not previously considered away with me. The course was ideal to gain the outdoor training accreditation as a stand alone day… The work we did on using the surroundings in small groups or one on one with clients was really well thought out and gave me lots to think about. I am confident this will give me lots of flexibility with my clients. This was my first course with FITT and it won’t be my last. I am already looking at pad work and [Suspension] in the near future.
Tamara provided a lot more useful instruction during the spin course than I have previously received. I learnt a great deal about the correct technique and how to get the most out of a spin lesson.
The course was great, Tamara was brilliant and helpful and I learned a lot.
I feel that this course was well delivered. I conducted my Level 2 qualification through a separate company and I have found FITT’s approach to me refreshing. It does not smack of the arrogance and self righteousness that other companies have. The instructors genuinely seem interested and are keen to impart knowledge, rather than assuming knowledge. Will definitely be using in the future.
I really enjoyed it and learnt so much. Thank you.
I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Team FITT for providing a course that suited my needs and my busy PT schedule (qualified with FITT 2012). It was exactly what I was after and John made it fun as well.
I took these workshops a little while ago and it was really useful to do a refresher, I always love seeing Marie-Claire she is a fountain of knowledge and it’s useful to tap into it! And the location is brilliant.
Please thank the team for all their support! Six months ago i left my home and job in london to start a new career in West Sussex and I can’t believe that in that time I am pretty much up and running and finally doing something I love, and I couldn’t have done it without you. You’ve all been amazing and I have loved every bit of all my courses. It is clear that you all work so hard to achieve a good standard and high level of teaching.
I thought the course was excellent – as usual! It included all the skills that we needed to succeed in the real world.
A very big thanks to John and Tamara for all of the help and expertise they provided for our group on the suspension training course last week. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and found it to be very beneficial with all of us now very confident in using the equipment with our clients and members. John and Tamara were great and made it fun as well as informative. I have been recommending it to our other trainers and instructors.
I was really impressed with the course and thoroughly enjoyed it. Marie-Claire is a superb teacher and I felt I received excellent value for money ( I was a little concerned as the course was just 2 days – many reformer courses are much longer-that it would lack in quality but I am so pleased I chose your course because I know I had a ‘top notch’ tutor and have been given a great introduction to working with the Reformer which will stand me in good stead for my own future teaching. It was so refreshing to be taught well by someone who is clearly very skilled and passionate about Pilates but who also very down to earth practitioner/tutor and great ‘fun’.
The Fitt teachers communicated to everyone on an individual basis and treated them how they knew would get the most out of the student. It was an enjoyable and easy-going day that aided in getting the most out of the course. Thanks guys
I thoroughly enjoyed training with Fitt Courses. All of the instructors are enthusiastic and passionate about fitness and teaching. I would highly recommend Fitt as a company to anyone wanting to start a career in the fitness industry or to expand on their qualifications. Five star courses, thank you.
Another fantastic course, thoroughly enjoyed it, am aching today though! Really enjoyed the master class and as always teaching was fabulous.
I was really apprehensive before the course, probably like most people; however, we were all greeted with a very warm happy smile and a reassuring and very professional Tamara. I was very happy with the way the course was structured and found all members of the FITT team very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I’m really looking forward in participating in more courses with the FITT team. I now have a good knowledge of indoor cycling, Thank you
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the course. Love the way it has been delivered. And I love the way of thinking – that each body is different, work with it in its natural form.
A great course run by the fitt team on sunday , great teachers very professional and very well presented . A massive thank you , highly recommended.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course – it was well planned and full of great information that I can use to plan a safe and effective class.The Core Training was perfect for what I want to add to my existing classes and went above and beyond my expectations.The Stability Ball training gave me all the information I needed with great explanations on the tips and techniques to make each exercise as effective as possible.I will definitely be looking to attend more of your courses and hope to book on the Advanced Stability Training in July 2013!I had a great time – thank you!
I found both level one and two reformer excellent. Fitt’s tutor Marie Claire has a wealth of knowledge and expertise; she is very good at helping students understand the purpose of each exercise, how to execute them well and more importantly, how to precisely and safely instruct a client. She takes time to ensure you understand and is very open to questioning, so I felt very comfortable in doing so, always learning more in the process. The studio is lovely, the atmosphere relaxed and the content of the course was comprehensive. Thank you very much…I hope to be back for more!
Well done FITT team another really useful course, Advanced Stability Ball course has added to my repertoire as a fitness instructor. I feel a confident practitioner in the fitness industry thanks entirely to the FITT team. You deliver efficient effective courses in not only a friendly and personable way but professionally at every level. Level 2 Fitness instructor, Level 3 Pilates instructor, CPD Courses: Circuit training, Step, Advanced Stability Ball: Thank you for all the above.
This course was part of my Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification which I booked on line and was all inclusive. My L3 FITT Tutor was insistent I attended this course and I am glad I did as I really enjoyed it and could see myself as an Indoor Cycling Instructor! Tamara and Michelle were very helpful with career advice and I think this could be the final string to my bow in my Fitness Career. Just need to get out there now!!
Having just passed my ETM with fitt – I was keen to build on this and see how I could incorporate more advanced and exciting choreography into my routines. The workshop certainly did not disappoint! The master classes demonstrated superbly how to build and layer the routines step by step, resulting in an exciting and dynamic class in which all participants would be able to follow at their level. I loved the fact that I could go home and change a few steps in my existing routines making them look and feel completely different with just a few simple adaptations – as well as now having the tools to radically change a routine completely. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and I am waiting for the next one!
I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, I found it so beneficial, both Tamara and Chris are so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I will definitely be doing future course with you.
I can’t recommend FITT strongly enough. If you’ve been in the industry for more than five minutes, chances are you’ve attended some training that was sloppy, or didn’t run to time, or didn’t quite do what it promised. I’ve only attended one FITT course, but will definitely book more – it was everything training should be – informative, fun, value for money, and I left the day knowing I’d be taking something new to my classes.
I have no hesitation in recommending the FITT team to anyone considering a career in the fitness industry. The FITT courses are of the highest calibre; carefully designed, well thought-out and extremely well delivered. The Level 2 Exercise to Music course was outstanding. I now teach Zumba, Zumba Gold, Body Conditioning and Just Jhoom! fitness – and put into practise the skills I learned with FITT. The FITT course equipped me with the techniques – and the confidence – to teach safely and effectively. I thoroughly enjoyed studying with FITT – and am looking forward to taking further FITT courses in the future.
I would like to thank you, Chris and John for your hard work in coaching us through to our level 3 personal trainer qualification. The course was great fun, hard work at times, but very well worth the effort and, from my point of view, it’s a wonderful feeling to know that I’ve achieved something that I can use in the next stage of my career! Over the last few months, I’ve been able to put to use my indoor cycling and circuit training knowledge, as well as working one to one with clients and I’m thoroughly enjoying the experience. Thank you FITT!
Thanks very much for today it was a very enjoyable process, if not a tad nerve racking! I would like to use this opportunity to thank both yourself, John and Keith for everything, please tell John he was absolutely brilliant in both the classroom and the gym, his knowledge and patience kept us all going, and it obviously did the trick, and it was so reassuring to be able to work with such lovely people. (this did help with the keeping the blood pressure at a stable level!).
