"I work in the finance industry and still enjoy it, but I was missing something an office job couldn't provide. I thought about becoming a PT for several years but always found too many barriers (time, money, effort). I then started training at Fitness Playground, met the amazing and highly qualified trainers and discovered FP Academy. I made a call, and remembered being told: 'Don't wait forever to let your dreams come true', so finally, I signed up!”

“I had been working as a warehouse manager for a food packaging company, there wasn't a lot of opportunity to grow. I had been training at the gym my whole adult life and I loved being at Fitness Playground so I enrolled in my Cert III & IV with FP Academy. With live clients, I was able to put myself in the shoes of a coach and learn how to do it before I was expected to coach. I now have a job at Fitness Playground and I love it.”

“I was an international airline pilot. Covid-19 gave me some time off from flying and showed me how down and fatigued I'd become. It was time for change. I originally signed up for an online Cert III & IV course but I came across FP Academy. Their course seemed much more relevant to what I needed to know, so I took a detour. The practical demonstrations and mentoring has given me solid foundations that I wouldn’t have been able to get online.”
