The FTI Measure of Success

Josh Piterman

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.

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.

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.

Master Functional Training Course Q&A

How long does it take to complete?

Most MFT students are able to complete their MFT certification in approximately 6-9 months however this depends on where you live as not all centres offer the same amount of course frequency of training as other centres.

Are there courses in my area?
You can find out where your courses are here. Just use the drop down link for the closest city to you.
Do I need to do these courses in any specific order?
No. In an ideal world you would do them in order of the MFT pillars (Theoretical Foundations, Fundamentals of Mobility, CrankIT Advanced & Essentials, Fundamentals of Powerbags, Kettlebells Level 1 and Level 2 and then Fundamentals of Battling Ropes).

However, only a very small percentage can actually achieve this, so it’s perfectly ok to do these courses in whatever order you’re able to do them in.

How many CEC’s will I get?

Up to 40.

Do you have payment plans?
Yes.
Is the Master Functional Trainer too advanced for someone entering the fitness industry for the first time or someone who is re-entering it?
Yes, in fact the best way to become a sought-after trainer is to learn the best, first. There are many ways of training but we’ve found that our MFT’s have a distinct advantage over those who get their ideas from random channels i.e. youtube.

By learning proven methods you are able to safely coach your clients at the highest level.

Why should I use the MFT programme?
The MFT programme is a system. Training clients is a process. Every client has a starting point that is unique for them, every client has a specific sequence that they must move through in order to achieve the desired result.

Because the MFT programme is a proven functional training system complete with screening, programming, coaching and assessments tools which shows you how to identify the best method to train a specific client to help them reach their goals.

It has been field tested by AIK Founders Dan & Tarek help their clients achieve their goals and also by our 200+ existing MFT clients.

All you need to do is follow the system.
