THFI’s New Online Coaching Course Partners with FITR

Launch Your Business Confidently Post-Completion

Manchester , UK / Jul 4, 2024 / The Health and Fitness Institute

In today’s rapidly evolving fitness industry, where many online courses promise secret formulas for entrepreneurial success, the reality is that few provide the necessary knowledge to thrive in this fast-changing profession. Cutting through the noise of influencers, five-figure mentoring programmes, and expensive, meaningless courses, THFI stands apart by offering a practical, seamless transition from learning to real-world application. The program not only ensures your success in launching an online personal training business but also demonstrates how online coaching can enhance both in-person and virtual methods, providing a comprehensive learning experience tailored to diverse client needs.

The Health and Fitness Institute has now launched its Online Coaching Course designed to empower fitness professionals with the skills, knowledge, and hands-on experience required to start, manage and scale a successful online personal training business. The course covers everything from creating your online programme and effective coaching in a virtual setting to using technology to automate your business admin.

Dan Rees, THFI’s Managing Director, said: “Our programme bridges the gap between learning and application. By integrating FITR’s top-of-the-industry personal training software into our curriculum, we ensure that our students not only gain theoretical knowledge but also practical, hands-on experience. They build their online client-facing platforms using FITR’s tools during the course, making them ready to launch their businesses with confidence upon course completion.”

Why Being Prepared for an Online Business is Crucial

The fitness industry has undergone a significant transformation with the rise of digital platforms. Leaders like Joe Wicks, known as “The Body Coach,” who gained global recognition through his online fitness programs and free YouTube workouts, and Kayla Itsines, co-founder of the Sweat app, who turned her personal training business into a digital powerhouse with accessible workout plans worldwide, have exemplified successful digital fitness models, showcasing the potential for innovation in reaching broader audiences.

The Online Coaching course champions these trailblazing elements and demonstrates that replicating existing business models isn’t necessary to succeed as a PT and business owner. Instead, it focuses on leveraging proven strategies such as utilising technology to automate tasks, streamline operations, and enhance client experiences with tools like progress tracking, to complement both in-person and online coaching. By integrating these digital elements with traditional coaching methods, you can overcome geographical barriers and efficiently expand your client base. This approach not only meets the growing demand for flexible, home-based fitness solutions but also positions your coaching business to scale effectively and adapt to evolving trends in the fitness industry.

Empowering Your Online Fitness Career with Real-World Tools

THFI’s Online Coaching Course is specifically tailored for individuals who are currently pursuing or have completed their Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification. This course covers all aspects of building and running an online personal training business, focusing on crucial areas such as online presence development, social media marketing, remote coaching techniques, and business management.

Exclusive Access to FITR’s Comprehensive Coaching Software

A standout feature of THFI’s course is the partnership with FITR, a leader in online coaching technology. This collaboration grants students exclusive access to FITR’s powerful software for 12 weeks, allowing them to build their own customer-facing platforms during the course.

This practical experience means they graduate with a ready-to-launch business, eliminating the need to start from scratch.”

Leon Cassidy, Founder and CEO of FITR, comments: “We understand that it can feel like a huge hurdle once Personal Trainers get their qualifications to get business ready. We’re delighted to open up access to FITR for THFI students to help them launch their personal training businesses. We’re confident that combining THFI education with FITR technology will provide the perfect springboard for any coach looking to achieve success online.”
