Absolutely not, the BMF academies mission is to raise the standards of fitness education across the entire industry by producing excellent quality fitness professionals, and welcomes learners from all backgrounds to study with us. For learners who are ex-military, we do have excellent links with our parent company British Military Fitness (BMF) who can offer employment opportunities to BMF Academy course graduates with military backgrounds.
All of the BMF Academy courses take a blended learning approach, which essentially combines Home study, E-learning and multiple intensive contact days. This approach allows learners to study over a longer period and focus on a couple of modules at a time so they can fully understand a topic, have hands on practice and be confident in their abilities before moving onto the next area.
As experienced fitness professionals and tutors, we firmly believe that taking a blended approach over a longer period produces far greater trainers as an end product. Whereas shorter ‘fast-track’ courses often try to shoehorn a huge amount of information into less than 5 weeks, which can leave learners confused, lacking confidence and ultimately poorly equipped to start a career in the fitness industry.
The BMF Academy prides itself in supporting learners all of the way through their journey into the fitness industry. As such we have established links with Lifestyle fitness Personal training, YourPT personal training, British military fitness and a number of other top brands, to provide our graduates with instant employment opportunities when they complete one of our courses.
The BMF Academy aims to provide the highest quality of training in the fitness industry, and our tutor standards are no different. All of our tutors have gone through an extensive selection process and have substantial experience as both fitness professionals and tutors. Most of the team are educated to degree level or above in their field and bring the most up to date knowledge to the table.
No, as long as you are an ex or serving members of the Armed Forces, or emergency services, you can work for BMF. You will need to complete a recognised fitness qualification at a minimum of Level 2.
