  1. Educational


    Learning online provides the most flexibility for learning, while still covering a great deal of information. Efficient exercise program content applicable to anyone, easy to use system, and knowledgeable resources readily available for questions.

  2. 5

    Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Very informative and the ability to return to the information is great for future reference. The interview was structured with feedback on the video and coursework which I liked. I can’t wait to start.

  3. One of the Best Exercise PT courses out


    The content and the science and just the work done is unlike anything I’ve seen online. Even big course names from NASM or ACE can’t really compare to the actual content here. NASM courses didn’t really teach me about exercise or how to train or anything that could bring value to my own training and others. HitUni and High Intensity Training definitely did. It’s a gold mine to learn all the benefits of exercise and how to implement it in a safe, efficient and effective way. Anybody who really wants to understand exercise as a science and is tired of the nonsense out in the market should definitely undertake this course. I’ve learned so much and to be honest, if I’m planning on scaling and training other trainers, it would be an requirement for them to take this course if they aren’t a PT yet or the CPD course. Thank you Simon and HitUni for the amazing gem of High Intensity Training education!

  4. The best HIT/Personal Training Certification on the web


    I really enjoyed the course. The HITuni team have done an incredible job to make the learning process highly informative and entertaining. The user experience is excellent and it feels very motivating to progress through the course. HITuni provide the highest quality HIT courses and certifications online and I highly recommend their products to anyone interested in becoming a high intensity trainer or starting a personal training business.

  5. Skeptic to believer to trainer.


    HIT Personal Trainer Course is quite thorough and effectively prepared me to train using the HIT protocol. I was admittedly skeptical about HIT when first introduced. My wife began HIT routines and I began reading Dr. McGuff’s Body by Science book. Then after reading about HIT from a variety of sources, I began a HIT routine myself and also started this course. I am now fully convinced about the benefits of HIT and am excited to put it into practice improving lives through personal training. Thank you for the course and the opportunity!

  6. A deep learning experience, elegantly delivered


    I have taken other certification programs. I have read through personal training certification program text books.
    This course was put together incredibly well.
    Well thought out lessons and sequence. Great simple instruction.
    Using multiple methods of engagement. Video, text, software, quizzes, communication, expert videos, and an actual review process of you actually taking the material and performing it with a real client.

    I feel competant to train a variety of clients with the comfort that I have all the resources from the course to look back to and reference when needed.

    Thank you, I am excited to bring these tools to others and have them feeling stronger and healthier than they would have been without my guidance.

  7. What an Experience!


    I loved this course. Great information that is going to help me become a more well rounded health care professional! Thank you Hit Uni Team!

  8. 5

    This course taught me a lot about the world of HIT. Each lesson was very comprehensive and clear.
