Learn the HIT way

High Intensity Strength Training is a system designed to maximise your fitness and physique with minimal time investment. It only requires performing five to ten exercises in twenty minutes, once or twice per week. It is the safest, most efficient and effective way to exercise.

Lead the change

High Intensity Strength Training has for the last 30 years been only a niche of the wider fitness industry. Now, popular media, books and research papers, all signal and stimulate an increase in the public awareness and popularity of HIT. There is a need and a growing demand for highly skilled HIT experts, the type HITuni will educate and certify.

Design your future

When working as a HIT personal trainer, you shape your career path. You choose how to train your clients; using free weights, body weight or exercise equipment at your studio, a gym or at the client’s location, all is possible with High Intensity Training. And because each workout is so time efficient, you choose how much or how little you want to work.

“First of all, I want to say I love the program. I haven’t done any other certification or any other type of education that has been as all encompassing as this has been.

I’d love for our new trainers to all have to go through HITuni, because it covers so many broad things that I feel trainers don’t get until they are two or three years into and it. I feel it would be so advantageous to get it right of the bat.”

Greg Viland, HITuni Certified Trainer, Iconic Trainer at Discover Strength

“I think you did a beautiful job. I am really impressed with it. I felt the value of the investment. I am extremely satisfied with it.

I wrote Dr Doug McGuff and said I am on the fence about doing this and his response was ‘Don’t do this to get a certification. Do this for your own personal knowledge and I highly recommend Simon’s program.’”

Jonathan Kaufman, HITuni Certified Trainer and owner of Everyday Fitness Guru

“Thank you for the work you have done with HITuni.com, providing a resource for those who want training and certification as well as a venue for teaching.”
