Empowering students, empowering futures

FITR will provide students with free access to its software during their studies, as well as providing a discounted subscription during the first year of their careers. Education providers benefit from added value to their courses at no additional cost, and their students are able to complete their qualifications with a business that is set up and ready to go. 

From classroom to career: Bridging the gap with digital software

As a result of this initiative, education providers can run digital practical assessments with their students. From setting up their business Storefront to demonstrating how clients have benefited from their coaching, this practical application of setting up a personal training business supports both the student’s learning and the launch of their careers. 

Practical application, real world impact

Leon Cassidy, Founder and CEO at FITR, said: “We understand that starting out in the fitness industry can be daunting, so we want to provide aspiring personal trainers with the tools they need to succeed from the very start of their careers. 

We’re committed to helping personal trainers grow their businesses throughout their careers, so we’re delighted to work with education providers to open up access to our software for their students. 

In the modern fitness industry the use of technology removes the barriers of time, geography and personalisation - giving trainers an excellent chance of succeeding in their quest to change peoples’ lives for the better.”

Collaborative success: FITR's educational partnerships

FITR has already partnered with some of the most forward-thinking education providers in the fitness space and is looking for more opportunities to extend its reach and support future fitness professionals across the world. Current partnerships include:

  • The Health & Fitness Institute (THFI), to revolutionise fitness education by integrating its industry leading technology into THFI's curriculum.
  • University of Surrey, to provide programming to Post Op Cancer patients.
  • HYROX, to provide exclusive resources and program templates for their Affiliate use.
