What our students say...

Holistic health fitness wellbeing

“Onfit Training College – it’s the place to go! “

“I can’t wait to work all the way through the course, so that I can use this skill and this qualification to help my clients.I love that you don’t have to be a Personal Trainer to do the course. Obviously it’s going to give a lot of Personal Trainers the edge, but there’s also components of the course that address the right exercise that we should be doing for weight loss or weight management and there’s also two components on 1 on 1 consultations & group consultations with clients.”

“It’s very very holistic and it’s so easy to follow – I love it! I know where I left off.. I can download all the resources – the workbooks, I can download the module themselves as well. There’s an abundance of resources & links that you can go to throughout the course”
