The Holistic Approach To Personal Training

The vast majority of our clients come with baggage. Injuries, metabolic disorders, hectic schedules and at times a lengthy medical history. The HPC (Holistic Personal Coach) course prepares you to properly manage operating in this new 21st century reality.

Course Outcomes


Observing, Assessing, Program Design and Coaching are essential skills we strive to build from Day 1. The 12 Week Guided Practice Program helps raise your confidence by enabling you to sharpen your skills.


When you join the course you will receive access to our online study platform. Once you graduate you will have access to the updated video and written content on your online platform account and you can also sit in the LIVE course as often as you need provided there are seats available. Those that do not pass will no longer have online access after their final exam.


They say knowledge is power. That might be so. We believe that taking action on what we know is essential to information becoming powerful. Learn the principles that most techniques in the movement world are built on so you can judge for yourself the authenticity of a program or exercise.

Certified & EREPs Registered

Once you graduate we will cover your 1st year registration in the EuropeActive prestigious EREPs. You will receive your FPA and EREPs certificates and membership number for you to log in and take full advantage of the benefits of being a EuropeActive Registered Exercise Professional.
