I completed the Resistance Band Essentials course and really loved it. Very informative and so many resistance band exercise as well as workout ideas given. I'm already planning to incorporate more resistance band exercises in my PT and group training sessions.
I just finished the Training Older Adults Level 1' course and looking forward to completing level 2. I've been a personal trainer for 7 years and have been training older adults throughout that time. I highly recommend any personal trainers or fitness instructors who train women over 50 years of age to do this course. I've learnt so much more about how a woman's body changes pre and post menopause and the importance of strength training, balance and coordination and how to keep it fun. It highlights risks and preventing falls, how to train clients with chronic illnesses and fun movements for anyone, including those with limited mobility or a chair bound. Highly recommended.
I have a Cert 3 & 4 in Fitness and have been in the industry since 2011.I recently completed Nutrition Essentials for Fitness Professionals through Fitness Education’s online learning platform. The information provided was very detailed and different from the general nutrition information we hear all the time. I recommend this course for anyone that has a client that doesn’t fit in a neat little box and requires a referral to an allied professional for specialized assistance. The format of the course is also flexible for professionals that don’t have a lot of spare time and need to fit it in where they can. Highly recommend!
I’m a PT in Sydney Australia and I’ve been a PT since 1994. I have just completed the Pregnancy and Post Natal Course with FEO. It was highly informative and I’d recommend all PTs do this course to be able to train pregnant and post natal women for positive outcomes.
I have been in the fitness industry for 9 years. Always looking for ways to keep knowledge relevant and up to date. This was a great course, with excellent content, that all fitness professionals would benefit from, especially those looking to work with older clients. I really enjoyed the viewpoint from all the presenters that aging can be a positive process and so much can be done to maintain a healthy mind and body 😊
I've been in the industry since 2018 level 1 training special population course is a must for any trainer .I love how each speaker runs additional course so you can go off and learn more in a chosen area. I looking forward to starting level 2
Just completed the Training Principles of Fat Loss. Course was highly educational, and provided a different aspect and way of looking at things to this topic. Thoroughly recommend this course to any trainer who has clients struggling with this. Keep up the good work FEO.
I worked previously as a mobile PT for 10 years but have been away from the industry for some time. I took the Online Essentials course because I know that is how I want to restart my business this time around. I would recommend this course to anyone that is thinking of training clients online, individually, in groups or selling prerecorded packages. I loved that FEO was able to simplify what is actually a quite complicated topic due to the infinity of variations. They gave a clear and concise overview and in a way that was very inspiring and motivating. I really enjoyed the interviews they had with other online trainers who had so many great tips and I really enjoyed how they picked a range of different training styles. I got the course on sale so it was amazing value too. Thank you!
The course was well set up to be able to work at your own pace and choose sections that work in for the time I had. Great range of experience and knowledge to be able to see which areas I would like to delve into more.
Training Clients with Upperbody Injuries-The course was great. 👍🏼Information was useful & well paced. The ability to download notes alongside videos was really helpful & made it easier to work through content.And examination process was fair & reasonable.I enjoyed that I was easily able to undertake the course easily as I'm relatively time-poor, & the self paced delivery really worked for me.I've already got the Training Clients with Lower Body Injuries course ready to go next.Thanks again.
I am a personal trainer, who has been in the fitness industry for almost four years (1 year as a self employed PT). I have just finished the Online Essentials course which was my third short course with Fitness Education Online. By far it was my favourite! I liked the recommendations given throughout to help sort through the overwhelming amount of information for trying to move online. It has given me a few strong starting ideas and places. Although the information I found of greatest benefit and my favourite part of this course was hearing from other leading trainers and business people who have successfully made the transition to online coaching and branched out even further. The sky really is your limit when you dare to dream big. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to grow their knowledge, business or to one day transition to online coaching. Thanks to the team at FEO for putting together such an insightful course 👏
After spending many years as a PT, I find fitting in time to continue study has been difficult. Since arriving in Brisbane from the UK and settling up my own business this has been even more so.However finding Fitness Education Online has been great. I have been able to set aside a little time in my week, to complete my initial course with them 'Training special population'. It has been pretty simple to go back each time and complete a couple of hours study, put it away and begin again, whenever the time allows. This has been such a great way for me to learn but not feel under pressure of time frames. I would highly recommend this course for all and CPD, especially for those with limited time in their busy schedules.👍
I have been in the fitness industry for almost 40 years .l found the seniors course to be one of the best l have done over the years and would highly recommend anyone in the industry to have alook at what they offer . l searched courses through google and came across Fitness Education check it out you, won't be disappointed.
I've just completed Cert 3 in Fitness. I've enjoyed being able to work at my own pace and have a variety of options for assessments. I would recommend using FEO for anyone that needs flexible study opportunities!
I have recently completed the Cert III in Fitness through FEO and am based in the ACT. I advocate this organisation to anyone that wants to work in the industry or increase their knowledge in all things fitness! The library of resources and support from the friendly team of experts is second to none, I highly recommend!
I’ve been in the fitness industry well over 25 years and I am based in the Ryde area as a gym manager . I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would recommend this to my colleagues.Very informative, with great supportive links and attachments.
I completed Cert III and Cert IV with FEO. I was extremely impressed with the knowledge and experience of the trainers as well as easy to understand content. I highly recommend completing Cert III and Cert IV with FEO to anyone looking at getting into the fitness industry or anyone who has a passion for fitness and would just like knowledge on the basic mechanics, body systems, nutrition etc!After completing the certifications, I completed FEO’s training women’s package which was awesome for both male and female coaches/instructors and have me some insight into how I should be training and considering life changes of women from all ages.I have continued my study with completing my Level 1 Australian strength and Conditioning Accreditation in which I would not have known about if it wasn’t for FEO.The level of support and communication has been amazing.I am now coaching CrossFit, weightlifting and Group Fitness classes.Honestly FEO is the best training provider I have come across in all my years of studying. Could not be more grateful!!✌️
Hey there - Have just completed the Training Menopausal and Peri Menopausal Women course. Thoroughly enjoyed this course and now feel amped to help my clients and pass on all my new found knowledge. I recommend anyone working with clients over 40 should look at doing this course. I am currently a PT working at Baycity Gym in Napier and excited to start sharing my knowledge. Rachael Chadderton.
Just finished my Suspension Training Module for Personal Trainers and loved it. I've been working in the fitness industry for over 25 years in Melbourne and was happily surprised to have learnt some new exercises to do with my PT clients. I highly recommend this course for any PT wanting some new ideas to use with either their one on one sessions or with small groups.
As a group fitness instructor of a range of ages the Perimenpause and Menopause Training appealed to me. As well as the course being easy to follow I was pleased i had no time constraints and my 1 enquiry through the course was replied promptly.I'd recommend this to women that like to be educated in their train ing in this age bracket
I just completed the course Menstrual Cycle Essentials: How to train women around their monthly cycle. I thoroughly enjoyed this course, I loved that it was at my own pace and was packed with important information. I also loved how Mish (the lecturer) gave scenarios and questions at the end on how to bring this topic up with clients and how to respond to their answer which was so so helpful. I would definitely recommend this to every personal trainer or fitness instructor females AND males as this information is so so important to help women during menstruation. Even if it’s for you’re clients it’s so interesting to know for yourself as a female trainer or even as a male trainer for females in your life!
I’m currently studying my Cert 3/4 with Fitness Education Online! No wonder they keep being nominated for and winning awards! Their drive to help students is incredible, not to mention the content! Thank you so much for all that you do!
I’m currently studying my Certificate III and IV with FEO Academy. I recently attended the weekend practical intensive and loved it! It was great to be able to knock over a bunch of the pracitcal tasks in one hit at one time at the one place- it saved me MONTHS of work! Along with that I got to network with other students currently taking the online course!And the best part… You get assessed in person on the day - so I didn’t need to record, download or upload any videos… If you’re studying online and struggling to get through the practical tasks - I strongly recommend it!
I have just obtained my cert 3 in fitness with FEO. They have been sensational. After 26 years as an teacher/principal in goverment education I needed something new. FEO provided that and I now feel like I am 21 again. They were so supportive and inspiring and I can't recommend them highly enough!
I have completed my Certificate III with FEO academy this week. It took about 3-4months while working full time. With the online course, Very flexible and Sean, my assessor swiftly replied back to my email asking silly questions.
I've been in the fitness industry for over 10 years.Recently under took the course - Adaptive Training: training clients with disabilitiesThis course is great for anyone who would love to help those with disabilities and understand their particular needs.I've worked with clients with special needs for the majority of my career and still found this course relative.
Hi, my name is Adrian Shelton and I am based over in Narre Warren, Victoria.I have been a qualified Personal Fitness Instructor since 2002 and have done over 25 short courses since then to acquire PDPs/CECs for my ongoing employment and education.(The courses were with FitNation, OnFit and the like.)Out of all of them, Fitness Education Online has provided me with the best possible value, both in terms of pricing and education.I just recently completed "4 Steps to a Successful Bootcamp, Levels 1 and 2" and found them to well worth the purchase.Level 1 covered the marketing side of things (an area of which I am badly lacking) and it has provided me with many ways to market my services; some of the promotional methods I would never have thought of on my own.The same thing applies to Level 2, which covers the practical side of running the actual sessions.The courses are well organized; concise, with no filler and full of valuable information based upon the collective experiences of both Jono and Travis, both of whom have spent close to 20 years in the field.I would highly recommend these courses to anyone pursuing a successful Bootcamp / Outdoors Group Fitness venture.The same applies to the rest of their courses. I have purchased over 20 of them in the last few years (I buy them when are on special) and they have always shown themselves to be worth the purchase price.All the best, Adrian.
Because of the quality and depth of knowledge in the courses I completed , I now have NDIS clients whom I love training. I’m a qualified personal trainer and completed level 1 and 2 training special population courses. This has enabled me to reach a wider variety of clients both training them in their own home or in gym setting
I did the Resistance band training with FEO.Very helpful for bring something fresh and interesting to Bootcamp or circuit classes.Highly recommend to all PTs and group fitness instructors.From the Shire with 💪
I’ve been working in fitness for nearly a decade and loved this course! I just completed the amazing Mish Wrights Menstrual Cycle Essentials & learnt so much! It was super informative, provided so many resources and really didn’t shy away from any topics (which is such a rarity). Would absolutely recommend to anyone starting out, looking to better understand their bodies, or who train anyone with a uterus!!
Based in Melbourne here and have been working in the industry since 2018. COVID really changed the landscape and direction of my business. Post lockdown I realised that my client base had evolved was now predominantly older adults. So I took training older adults level one and two courses to upskill and increase knowledge.I strongly recommend this for anyone who works with or is thinking about working with an aging client group. This course blended theory with some examples from real life practical sessions. The practical workout demonstrations are a great way to inspire your client workout plans.I would also like to mention this course is great for learning about common health issues that can occur in general population as well as older adults.Thanks again.
I completed the Training pre and post menopausal women course with Mish.It was great! Her approach was one of empathy and connection with clients, really listening to their own individual stories and needs.Mish is incredibly knowledgeable!Ive been in the industry for over 20 years in the Sydney and Blue Mountains areas.I would really recommend this course!
I'm Tammie! 46yrs young, Personal trainer and fitness instructor, originally from Manchester in the UK and now living happily in Brisbane, QueenslandI've been in the fitness industry for over half my life timeI've just completed the Nutrition Summit: What FitPro's Need To Know About Nutrition course!

Hi everyoneI'm a registered exercise professional based in Canberra and I've been in the fitness industry for seven years now. I've just completed the Myofascial Essentials for Personal Trainers online course through FEO. I would strongly recommend this course for all personal and group trainers out there. John Folley really presents his subject well spending time on every necessary detail.Of particular interest for me were his explanations on the Biotensegrity system, the explanation of fascia as a tensional system, training against and through gravity, the Institute of Motion 4Q model and finally, his programming model with variables we can manipulate as trainers.
Mobility Level 1 Course with John PollyHighly recommend this course for anyone who is new or experienced in the fitness industry and looking to build on their knowledge of mobility and accurate movement screening. John goes into great detail and creates an interactive course which allows you to better understand the mechanics behind his teachings and how they can be applied to everyday scenarios and a variety of clientele.
Hi everyone. Just wanted to share my experience with Fitness Education online.I've been in the Fitness Industry for 32 years working in Victoria and Qld. Currently back in Victoria. I've just completed the Chair One course and thoroughly enjoyed it. The fact that there was no pressure to complete it at a certain time was a bonus. The content was easy to follow and the videos were great. Working with seniors is my speciality so this course has given me inspiration. I would highly recommend anyone who would like to or does work with Seniors or people with a disability to do this course.Well done Fitness Ed Online.
My name is Rhonda, I am based in Brisbane and have been a group fitness instructor for over 34 years. I just completed Trng older adults levels 1 & 2. I really enjoyed the ease of doing the course, the level of expertise and professionalism of the presenters and the continued access to learning tools. I would recommend this course to anyone contemplating on a career working with older adults and to discover how intellectually and financially rewarding this demograhic are to work with.
Recently completed Training menopausal and perimenopausal women with Michelle Wright.It was amazing! Very informative in all aspects from definition, symptoms, effects on women’s body and lots and lots of examples of how to train women in this age group.Online delivery was perfect for me as I am a pilates instructor (working 5years in the industry but 18years experience with pilates) on the Central Coast/Lake Macquarie area of NSW so could complete the course during shifts at the studio.Women’s health is an area that is a passion of mine with further study in movement around period cycles, and pre and post natal clients. So this course was perfect and with most of my clients being women or older women it has complimented my training.Clients were loving the little info insights I would share during sessions.
I have worked at Curves for nearly 10 years. I did the myofascial essential course. I would recommend it to anyone in the fitness industry. It opened my eyes up to understanding how to train more effectively
I have been working as a PT for 17 years in Melbourne, and are regularly upskilling to give the best to my clients.I recently completed the Menstrual Cycle Essentials and found it very informative and applicable to my client base.The information was thorough but also presented in a way which was engaging.I highly recommend it as a way of improving training plans for female clients.
Completed the Training menopausal and peri menopausal women course which I thought was excellent. It really helped close a very large gap in what I thought I knew and the information I wasn’t from the GP fraternity. I found it both beneficial for my own personal journey and now feel a lot more confident in having conversations with clients around this topic. Lots of practical tips and tools to take away and use immediately. Recommend this to all fitness professionals.
