Nicole Taylor

Graduated from distance learning in the direction of "Personal fitness trainer". I would like to mention a large amount of information, a lot of additional materials, video lectures, all this is a good base for a novice coach. The main thing is not to stop there and continue to develop. I really liked the teacher Nika Bujiashvili, excellent presentation of the material, his lectures are a pleasure! Thanks to the college for bonuses and discounts! I think I will come back here again. In the meantime, I'm waiting for my diploma.

Good evening! I completed my training in the direction of "Personal fitness trainer" remotely. I would like to express my gratitude to the curator and the teachers who accompanied me during the educational process, always answered my questions. The training took place remotely in a comfortable mode for me, but at first there were difficulties in order to integrate into the training and several times I was just worried that I didn't have time for anything, then I learned to allocate my time and everything went like clockwork). The amount of information received is very large, everything is clear and interesting. I will definitely come back for new knowledge.

I would like to express my special gratitude to the College of Fitness for an exciting and interesting training program "Personal Fitness Trainer"! The first surprise for me was the video lectures, which are presented in such an easy and understandable format that sometimes you forget that you are studying. Considering what I was doing before, I realized that my knowledge was not enough and I had to delve into some points. Teachers respond very promptly to the sent assignments and questions that arose during the training process, but there were few questions, since everything is described in detail in the manuals, you need to read it several times and everything becomes clear. Many thanks to the teaching staff for the development of unique teaching aids!
