What our students are saying about our courses
Loved the course, since it focused on principles of HIT, which is hard to find good information about. Loved the exercise demonstrations and lectures focusing on principles of HIT, which were explained in a comprehensible manner. Additionally, I loved the section of intensity techniques and many examples of TSC exercises. The course kept the promise of providing existing exercise professionals with a thorough explanation of the principles of HIT. Simon reviewed this course:...Read more
The 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...Read more
I loved this course. Great information that is going to help me become a more well rounded health care professional! Thank you HITuni Team!
I really loved the opportunity to learn. The interview was also such a pleasure to talk with you (Simon). You are an expert in the field, and just conversing back and forth was so enlightening. Thank you for a wonderful course and an incredible interview.Read more
This course is fantastic for anyone, who is thinking to learn, brush up on, or enhance their skills and understanding of High Intensity Training. The course is easy to follow and understand and it moves in a logical flow, which is hard to find when someone tries to teach you about HIT. As someone who’s already been working in HIT for almost three years I found the course to be a great reminder on a lot of the things I often take for granted, and a tool I will definitely be using in the...Read more
I have taken other certification programs. I have read through personal training certification program textbooks. 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 competent to train a variety of clients with the comfort...Read more
Loved the perspective and incorporation of "functional" exercise into a HIT type workout. Great exploration of differences between different forms of exercise from the most explosive\power driven to the more typical HIT approach. Just a great course with loads of information which is usually not hear about in the HIT scene!Read more
I enjoyed the course very much. Lot of knowledge taught in an easy-to-understand manner. I love the idea of the course notes, most of the bullet points written down. I also liked the structure of the course, easy to follow and to understand. The production quality of the videos is very impressive too.Read more
I cannot rate this course highly enough. Not only is the course laid out brilliantly, covering every angle on personal training, with a brilliant website that leads you through this information logically; it is also thorough and up to date. Simon's passion is obvious, and I felt encouraged via the "further reading" suggestions which are excellent. The material is at an extremely high standard academically and deserves all your attention to get the most out of it. It was attainable though and...Read more
This is an excellent course and extremely good value for the money. First off, it fills a much needed gap in providing a sound education on the merits of HIT. There are book and manuals one can buy and decipher oneself, of course, but nothing that really goes under the hood to the extent this course does. This is one of those courses that bridges the gap between autodidactic learning on the subject and very (often very, very!) expensive in-person qualifications provided by individual HIT...Read more
This course gave me the education I need to work with clients at QuickHit and be a successful personal trainer.
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....Read more
This is an EXCELLENT course (NXL Training)! I’ve been doing a lot of online and this has been very helpful to create something new. I’ve been doing HIT for over 30 years and I thought I had seen it all! Great job!
This course has been an amazing experience for me! I learned in great depth the science of HIT and also how to perfectly apply it both on myself and on future clients. The course was also perfectly structured, the lessons are not too long and keep you interested until you reach the end of each. The mini exams were a very useful tool for evaluating my progress and helped me understand where my weak parts were and gave a strong feeling of achievement after you finish them. The course offered me...Read more
Really loved the material covered in this course. I thought it was a good review of information I have learned over time working as a personal trainer. This course taught me new exercises I can incorporate with my clients routine's and how to deliver world-class workouts.Read more
Starting to do a certification in personal training at the age of 61, with only my own personal workout experience with my HITuni-certified-trainer Rick Chartrand, has me realize the safe hands I have been in and how much Rich has already passed on to me in training me. I appreciate how professional HITuni is with the training methods and enjoy being a part of a respected certified training protocol.Read more
Jay Vincent makes it incredibly simple to get the results you have always wanted. With one or two short, intense workouts a week, I am seeing better results than I did when I was in the gym 6 days a week for hours on end. Jay gives you all the tools and knowledge you need to succeed, and leaves it in your hands to truly push yourself as hard as you can. I am the strongest I have ever been, at the lightest healthy weight I have been at in my adult life, thanks to Jay.Read more
I really enjoyed the Personal Trainer course. Despite talking to 200+ HIT experts on High Intensity Business, I learnt tons from 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. HITuni gives you everything you need to become a competent personal trainer...Read more
Loaded with clear, informational videos and graphs, Simon Shawcross has designed a platform that is perfect for anyone, experienced or beginner.
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.Read more
I'm really enjoying each module. I find the videos and corresponding notes really suit my learning style and the quiz at the end of each module is a fantastic tool to assess my understanding. Thank you very much for the obvious hard work you've put into creating this course, it's greatly appreciated.Read more
As always, I enjoy Bill’s writings and may well benefit by actually avoiding future injuries to myself and to my clients. This alone, obviously is worth far more than the price of this course. For this reason, it is a bargain I can easily recommend. However, I was left with less than a clear understanding as to why certain things would be applied that do involve quick movements and subjecting self or clients to higher forces in the process. To Bill’s credit, the author does state that these...Read more
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.Read more
I thought the course was very expansive. I learned more than I thought I would. Everything was very detailed and I got all the topics that I was curious about. I am really intro nutrition so I really enjoyed the Nutrition module; I thought it was very thorough. I learned a lot from that and it is a very good resource to go back to check all the vitamins and minerals, etc. It’s nice to have at the click of a finger. Obviously, I am not a nutritionist but this module gave me enough knowledge...Read more
There is everything I need in there. I can’t see myself using any other resource on High Intensity Training for quite a long time. I thought it was great and I’ll be using it again and again and again. I am talking even compared to university level education. You do four years studying exercise science and you are not having the resources available the same way it’s here or as comprehensive, especially when it comes to HIT, not that I am aware of. I would give it 5...Read more
About four weeks in on using the HIT approach - I can cheerfully say that I'm over the top happy with knowing that I can get strength back, stave of Sarcopenia, and feel really good about it. This approach is very time effective and through my work insurance program, I have a very cost effective gym membership too. I thank you very much and will happily be a HIT Champion going forward! Keep up the superior work you are doing for this field! Jim reviewed this course: DIY:...Read more
I thought the Personal Trainer course was excellent. The online tutorials, the supporting notes, the way it was structured, the assessment process throughout the course was very good. The video lectures ticked all the boxes for me. I found them very relevant and held my interest. I have no negatives. Good value for money! Just excellent!Read more
The course is great. It’s a great platform. We are definitely going to be using it. I am going to be hiring some new trainers for our new facility in the coming months and the CPD course is going to be a requirement for our new trainers. Love the videos, love the content, love the access to it. The way you laid it all out with the quizzes and the practical videos is a great way to round up the course. Great job! Matt reviewed this course: Master HIT Personal...Read more
As someone who had read Body by Science and listened to all the Corporate Warrior podcasts and was really into High Intensity Training, but had no background in Anatomy and Physiology or business and marketing, I learned a ton from the Master Personal Trainer course. I really liked that there were both videos and notes in each lesson. Watching the videos and then reading the notes really engrained the information and just having that to go back to was very helpful. I don’t think I missed...Read more
For $99, it would be tough to make this much better. I am very glad to have the detailed explanations of the exercises for reference. When I feel like I’m stuck, or something is off about an exercise, I will return to the demos for reference. I loved it and will recommend to others interested in high intensity strength training.Read more
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. The HITuni course gave me more coaching tools and tips to refresh my training of clients and actually my interest as well. I've logged tens of thousands of hours training clients since I started in 2005, and this course was great for the advancement of my career. Specifically, the course taught me how important and...Read more
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.Read more
I have spent the afternoon going through this module (Professionalism and Personal Training) and have been very impressed by the comprehensive introduction to the course, particularly around the governance and WHS aspects of running a business, I currently work in WHS (Workplace Health and Safety) regulation and thought the modules around risk management and your dealing with psycho-social risk were great!Read more
What our partners are saying about HITuni
So... Bill DeSimone and Simon Shawcross took a bit of a HIT (See what I did there) with sharing the Functional Training and HIT course on social media recently. Now, let's be clear these are both very good friends of mine, but they're also respected colleagues whom I listen to with regards to...Read more
Today, amid the continuing, overwhelming clutter of the fitness “industry”—the online influencers, the boot camps, the infomercials, the alphabet soup of certifications, the (remaining) glossy print magazines, and the like, HITuni may be the only provider of formal education in safe, brief,...Read more
I am thoroughly impressed. The depth, attention to detail, quality, and presentation of the materials are unparalleled.
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.
When a college student or a young professional comes to our conference, I couldn't be more excited about looking at them and saying 'hey, this is the certification you need to do'.
I'm hoping around, back-and-forth, to different parts of this, and skimming, and watching snippets of the videos, and I am absolutely blown away. This is really, really, great stuff. it seems as though you've knocked it out of the park!Read more
The course is so complete and all encompassing that it is hard to think of anything that is missing. You have taken HIT upwards...a real step up in terms of professionalism, instruction and education.Read more
