What People are Saying about YBFIT Training’s Courses

Hello Claire,

I just wanted to thank yourself and also Claire Stone for your fantastic ETM course. After passing on the 25th of January I managed to get straight in and teach my 1st class on the 30th of January… daunting and scary to say the least. I was very nervous but kept calm and it went very well, clients came up to me afterwards and thanked me and said they had really enjoyed the class which made me feel good. I analysed the class afterwards as of course I made mistakes and asked the class for feedback, since then I have taught 64 classes and have improved alot and my confidence has rocketed. Ive still got lots to work on but each class is a new opportunity to excel further. Clients thank me after lots of my classes that I have the privilege to cover and I have clients who have taken the time to put in written positive feedback. Instructors have passed my contact details recommending me and I have had so much work which I never ever imagined. Exercise classes has helped me to shed 5.5 stone so it feels great to finally give some of that enthusiam to others and help them achieve their goals.

Again thanks to you and your team for your fabulous courses…

In my opinion what makes YBFIT Training different from other training providers I have encountered is the director Claire, not only is she passionate about her role, she really cares about the welfare of her learners. YBFIT is not just a training provider which gives good quality training courses, Claire has also created a nurturing environment that enables the learners to blossom and become better instructors. To me, that is what makes YBFIT stand out. The tutors she takes onboard are of the high calibre, experienced, knowledgeable and supportive, not to mention with good humour. I always have a good laugh on their courses, which makes learning fun and enjoyable.

I came across YBFIT when I was searching for Aqua course, it was not an easy decision to go with YBFIT as the location is not convenient for me, which means extra costs incurred for travel and hotel. After numerous phone calls with the the Aqua tutor and Claire, I was really happy to book on the course; a decision I’ve never looked back on.

I have tried a couple of other training providers (purely because they are closer to me), but was bitterly disappointed. If you are happy to be part of a production line, need minimum to no support for the courses, happy to grab your certificate and be confident at what you just spent a weekend learning with the other 14 learners, then you might be ok.

However if you are like me, who not only want a good quality training course, but need that little extra help and support, YBFIT is for you. The groups at YBFIT are normally small, which means the tutor can spend time with individuals and tailored to their needs. The ongoing support is phenomenal. There have been occasions when I wasn’t even booked on a course at YBFIT but I wanted Claire’s advice, she would not hesitant to write back very quickly and gave me objective and empathetic advice.

I have done Pilates, Exercise Referral and Low Back Pain with YBFIT since Aqua, and after my disappointment with other training providers, I have vowed to do all my fitness courses with YBFIT. Well done Claire/YBFIT, keep up the good work!

I am really grateful to YBFIT, I am the instructor I am today thanks to them and I will never stop learning and improving.

Thanks

‘I completed 2 courses with YBFIT Training in 2016, the level 2&3 personal trainer course .
I really enjoyed the courses and because the courses were held over weekends, it fitted in really well with my other job and family commitments .

The instructors were very good and made the leading fun and also were very supportive to all our specific needs. (Some of us had more experience/ confidence than others ).

The venue is easy to get to and the facilities excellent .

I am hoping to do another course there this year .
Thank you YBFIT Training ‘

YMCA Awards Level 2 Fitness Instructing Gym-Based Exercise and Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training


“I recently attended a 2 day course in Water Based Exercise (Aqua Aerobics) provided by YBFIT Training.

I’m currently a Group Exercise instructor, predominantly teaching Indoor Cycle. I wanted to add to my fitness knowledge and open up other opportunities to teach different classes, so decided to take the WBE course.

YBFIT Training had been recommended to me, and was also at a convenient time and location so I choose this course over other providers. I would also gain a recognised qualification that the current Gym networks I work for, would be happy to accept.

The course was attended by 7 in total, with a good mix of teaching experience and backgrounds. This made for some great questions and ideas, so having never taught Water-Based Exercise before, this was also helpful. The tutor was very accommodating to the group providing ideas and suggestions, so whilst a portion of the course is class room based, it was interactive and involving rather than set in an academic format.
We had time in the pool, to begin to understand how the body can move in water and how it differs from teaching a land based exercise class. We then took our assessments.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found it very informative. It was hard work, as there’s a lot to cover in 2 days, but I felt ready afterwards to face the public and take on a class!

It is a good starting point to then build up a bank of moves. I have a greater understanding of the limitations and opportunities of Water-Based Exercise and am excited to put it all into practice.

It is a great course, with a very professional and friendly tutor. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would happily return to YBFIT Training if I have future training needs.

Thanks!”

AQUA COURSE


“I have just completed my second course with YBFIT Training. The first being ‘Exercise to music’ last spring and the second in ‘Level 3 Mat Pilates’. I would highly recommend YBFIT Training to anyone already working in the fitness industry, or someone looking for a change in career. The instructors I had for both courses were fantastic and we became to see them more as friends then teachers. I was already a Personal Trainer when I undertook my courses with YBFIT Training, and since it has really helped to boost my client base and the number of sessions I am completing each week. Although the courses were challenging, the instructors along with the rest of the staff made the courses very enjoyable. They were also more than willing to give additional support, even giving up their own time.

I now feel confident and in control when teaching one to one and in my classes.”

“My name is Magda Colley and I joined YBFIT Training after being made redundant from a position of a Marketing Services Manager working in the commerce sector for many years. Being a frequent visitor to a local sport club, I felt that I can face the challenge of a new career path and become a fitness instructor. I enrolled at Exercise to Music Course which proved to be a steep learning curve for me as the course was quite thorough and I had to prepare my own aerobic class for an assessment. After a shaky start to my fitness career I arranged a Gym Instructor Course on one to one basis to fit with my limited timetable. My tutor, Becky Cuffy took me through my paces and I worked very hard both during practical session and a gym based assessment. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and feel confident towards a prospect of working as a gym instructor. When I saw that YBFit training was offering a weekend course for an Aqua Instructor and did not hesitate twice and took on that challenge once again. All the previous knowledge both from the gym and aerobic class proved to be beneficial in understanding the structure of a water based exercises. I had not waited long before finding a suitable employment. I am currently teaching aqua in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and hope to be able to complete Pilates Instructor course with YBFIT Training in the near future. I would recommend the centre to everyone, not only because teaching standards are excellent, study materials provided in advance but as the courses are tailored to individuals needs and assessment dates flexible. It allows candidates who travel from afar to accommodate their dates to their working commitments.”

“My first course with YBFIT was a great experience. From the first contact I made with my enquiry to receipt of my letter confirming I had past the communication from all YBFIT staff was concise and informative. Course material supplied was easy to understand and the course was delivered in class with a fun, informative style that made it a pleasure to be there. I cannot recommend them enough and I will absolutely be returning for further modules.”
