What Others Say About the Master Functional Trainer Certification

I own one of Melbourne’s Elite Functional Fitness studio’s “The Functional Project”. We have a database of over 250 clients and 4 fantastic trainers. It couldn’t have happened without injecting myself into the MFT course and clearly following the systems that were laid out to me. We have a 3 tier training system, that not only includes traditional PT but a Semi-Private Training system, which increases our earning capacity by up to 400% on every session. Learning this system alone is reason enough to take up the course!

None of these classes would be possible without the training and knowledge I gained from the MFT course and the constant ongoing support I get from the entire FTI team! I would highly recommend the MFT course to every trainer looking to increase their functional training knowledge and create a profitable business model.

– Josh Piterman

Since completing the MFT course I find I have really expanded my business and knowledge. I have become so much more confident in assessing and being able to help my clients in their quest to reach their goal not only in strength and fitness but help in so many other aspects. I have also been able to increase my hourly rate and have satisfied clients which equates to referrals.

I highly recommend the MFT to anyone who wants to grow their business and become a better trainer. The staff and coaches are great mentors, always willing to go that extra mile to help along the way. The trainers you meet help you become part of the MFT community, it’s like having a family of network and support. I truly thank you guys at the FTI for making a difference to my business and life.

– Linda Petrovski

Every time I walk away from any event held by FTI I’m so inspired and excited. The BEST thing I ever did was sign up to the MFT program, and to decide to throw myself into all the courses I can.

Not only is the content amazing, the people I’ve met inspire me greatly.

Being surrounded by other ‘amazing’ coaches within the FTI community is second to none and so crucial.
