More positive than negative

The Australian Institute of Fitness supported and guided me throughout my learning experience. They are a respected entity who are always willing to sacrifice time in order to help their fellow students. Making us a better trainer and boosting our knowledge in preparation for the fitness industry. Show reply

Very dissatisfied about the course

The teaching and content of this course was good however very dissatisfied with the expectations of the course. Firstly a course that was supposed to be face to face and a week before being changed to all online i and many others were very unpleased.

Australian Institute of Fitness - Master Trainer Program

The AIF Master Trainer Program was a well organised and delivered training program. Professionally supported by a terrific coaching team. I would highly recommend the IAIF. Show reply

Loved studying with AIF. I completed my diploma for remedial massage and got a job almost straight away after graduating.
Great coaches, good campus. Show reply

Wealth of Knowledge + fun atmosphere

I studied back in 2015, and enjoyed the atmosphere and learning environment at AIF. It really set me up for success in the fitness industry. I am still working in industry and enjoy helping the fitness industry grow Show reply

Overpromise, Under-deliver

Your outcome from completing this course will be paying a ridiculous amount of money for the pleasure of not being able to find work. 1 star is too Kind.

DON’T SIGN UP- MAKE SURE YOU READ REVIEWS!!

When i signed up for my courses with the AIF they ensured me study would be made easy even though I am working full time. However, this is not the case. They tell you that the course is at your own pace, however, this is not the case. I have now emailed the team to let them know i’d like to withdraw from the course and I am now still having to pay for the course even if I decide I am no longer doing it. These guys are a joke and are money hungry. Do not recommend

Absolutely terrible, avoid at all costs!!

I signed up for their master training course at the end of 2021 with the hopes of part time in person learning. Due to covid it got moved around a bit and I was ok with this at the time. I had to postpone my studies due to uni and then started again in September 2022. After a month of the blended course it switched to online without giving anyone an option. I’ve already paid 3 grand to the AIF and now that I’m trying to cancel, they’re conveniently not responding. I’ve been calling and emailing for a month and there’s no response just emails saying they’ll get back to me ASAP. This has become such a big stress in my life and I just want it to be over. I definitely do not recommended the AIF for any courses, steer clear!

terrible, 100% Avoid!

I have a chronic medical condition which has prevented me from completing my studies. I have had medical certificates and letters from specialists saying i'm not physically able to continue my studies but yet apparently that's not a good enough reason to cancel the course. I have been trying to cancel the course for 4 months and im still trying. There communication is awful, staff unfriendly and dont care about you or your wellbeing. They are selfish, bullies and my biggest regret is starting this course. there are much better training providers out there. Dont put yourself through this.

Wouldn't recommend to anyone

Poorly set out course, extremely confusing ecampus, no assistance for online students what so ever. Give you 12 months to study at your own pace then cancel your course after 9 months cause of "certain check points". Then try to justify why with a whole heap of crap after having not contacted you at all as to what was happening.
Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!

The Best

Absolutely the best experience at Australian Institute of Fitness Parramatta. I finished my Remedial Massage therapy diploma certificate this year and working in chiropractic clinic. Prior to this I was struggling to get into Allied Health Industry,all the coaches have boosted my confidence level. My massage coach helped me a lot during the course. Thanks to all the team. Show reply

Beware

Beware of this company/ institution it is so unprofessional.
Please read reviews be for committing to a course.
They have been send my 17 year old son letters of demand and threats for payments to a course that he could not continue due to mental health reasons and he was suicidal.
We had letters from doctors and their reply is he does not met requirements For extenuating circumstances and is liable to continue paying.
This is just money hungry and bullying tactics at the best

Amazing course could not recommend more!

Absolutely amazing, I’m enjoying it very much, it’s easy to navigate the online study system and the best part has been the help I get. No question is too big and the response is very fast. I was affected by the recent floods making it difficult to access equipment and case studies and AF has been very understanding and helpful with that as well it means the world to me. Can’t wait to finish and get started I’m so so excited. Show reply

AIF, turning out the best pt’s around

I was extremely satisfied with the content of the course, and the teachers Lahnee, Ellyn and Lacey were excellent. I was 69 when I decided to get my qualifications and was on the phone to them 2-3 times a week. They made everything so clear and made it possible for me to succeed. Show reply

Fun course

Coaches were very responsive and helpful. The course was well set out.
They coaches made the assignments fun.
The assignments where we had to find volunteers was fun however did make it difficult to film at times as you had to rely on them Show reply

The real AIF experience

I don’t understand all the negative reviews on here, because my experience at AIF exceeded my expectations! The course content was comprehensive, the mentors were extremely knowledgeable, there was always on-going support from the AIF team on campus/online and the group of Warriors i got to experience this journey with become lifelong friends. Although it got challenging at times, the staff and other Warriors were always there to help every step of the way and made my AIF experience what it was ❤️ Show reply

Amazing way to start a career as a Personal Trainer

Honestly couldn't be happier with the experience! The teachers were so knowledgeable and supportive throughout. I graduated and felt I had all the tools I needed to begin my career. Show reply

Outraged with lack of understanding, reason and empathy

No chance to start the course and experience any course content. No flexibility to defer course. Unempathetic company with rigid finance policy that takes advantage of vulnerable clients. Be aware that if anything in your life does not go well, AIF only see dollars. Paying for a whole course even though the client is not there. Family suffering because of their lack of pastoral care and piecemeal attempts to resolve issues. Be careful when you sign on the dotted line. Make sure you don't get sick. Perfect people with perfect lives need only apply.

customer service

Customer service was horrible, guy named Bruce was the course "guru" but was rude and after telling me the prices I said thanks and i'll get back to them he'd said nothing and hung up.

Terrible experience

No support what so ever, you ring and ask for support and they have no idea on how to help you. There's no flexibility in order to be creative. Everything is marked wrong without providing extensive feedback to understand what you've done wrong and are expected to wait at least 3 days before something is marked. By that time you have started on other projects because if you don't you will have to pay a $300 deferment fee. I wish I had never paid for both cert 3 and 4 and was lied to by the person selling the course to me saying "It can be completed at your own pace"... Super regretful.

Regretful

So sooo repetitive. Do it face-to-face, or not at all to get it over with! Stopped learning months ago - the course could've wrapped up at least 5 months ago and I'd be qualified the same. Overloaded with useless content then brushed over the worthwhile aspects that we should be quizzed on rather than wasting time with endless referral letters, repetitive filling in the blank obvious details, and haggling busy friends and family for long tedious video submissions. Waste of time and resentment to complete!!

I would give 0 stars if I could

everything that was promised in the master trainer course was not delivered. I wasted $7000 on this course and am still completely under qualified to train a client in person. a joke of a company, think twice before signing up

So much more than a PT Course

My expectations going into this course were high but I was not prepared at how much it would blow me away! The content was so interesting, relevant, contemporary and engaging. The coaches were so well informed and inspiring not to mention so efficient in their workload. An incredible experience!
