What our students say

“The Fit Education course was a great opportunity for me to gain experience and learn new things about the fitness industry. The teaching team have a great theoretical basis, as well as years of experience.”

Veronika Larisova
“Perhaps the best attribute of the course was its flexibility. Often I had the choice of ‘at home’ or ‘in the classroom’ studies. In particular Steve’s first-rate, hands-on knowledge proved invaluable to my learning experience. I would recommend the course to anyone seeking a career in the fitness industry.”

Gary Belcher
“The learning outcomes exceeded my expectations, thanks to examples from Steve Nance’s career, the facilities, and the full gym on offer. I have now secured a full-time personal trainer position at Jetts Fitness, Taringa, as well as creating my own personal training business, Equipt Personal Training.”
