Supporting you at every step
For over 21 years, we’ve successfully supported more than 9,000 students through our Fitness courses. When you enrol with AOF, you’ll be supported by our skilful team of academic, student support and professional staff, who will be with you every step of your fitness studies journey. Our academic staff are all still working as personal trainers themselves and have extensive teaching histories before coming to work with the Academy of Fitness.
The AOF online learning experience includes several student support services, including an easy online booking system to chat with your trainer and regular webinars held for our students.
"They weren’t trying to sell it to me. They were understanding my lifestyle, where I was at…I can do it in my spare time. I can do it whenever I want. The practical- love it. They respond so quickly, calling, emailing- I would recommend it just because it’s a good education for yourself, it’s not just for teaching other people."
"I phoned a few different training providers and once I’d spoken with the team at AOF, I just felt a really great connection with them, really lovely people. They had fitness studies themselves, so they could really offer us some great industry insights into how we could really provide a great service… They could provide training that went above and beyond just the basic stuff."
"With ease, I found the Academy of Fitness. I love the flexibility- I have a one-year-old daughter and having the option to choose where I want to study and when I actually have the time to study definitely helps. I also love that the course challenges me online as well as the practical assessments, so it’s not all just theory, it’s practical and you have to get involved with the community."
"So, without education in any kind of career, you cant really expand. So I found that obviously that groundwork of a cert 3 and 4 does give you that foundation of knowledge to then leapfrog further into whatever you want to do in the fitness industry."
