Since 2006 we have been built by our trainer communities

The FASTER Hub

The Hub becomes the focal point of all of your training which allows to build the ultimate workout.

If you want to build and load precise movements, engage teams of people, motivate individuals, stand out from the crowd in your gym or park, then the hub is going to be the answer. 

The concept was formed in 2010, and designed in 2012 for Personal Trainers who work with clients that need to
perform complicated movements.

The current
FASTER Hub is the fourth version and cannot be bought on its own, instead you get to join a club, which allows you access to all of our hub courses both online and live, as well as all future hub courses, without further purchases.

Asking yourself the right questions upfront will help you establish which course and company is right for you. Here are some questions to help you. 
  • What will give you job satisfaction?
  • Who do you want to end up training?
  • How many hours, days, and weeks in a year do you want to work?
  • How much money do you want to earn?
  • Where will you turn if things go so well you need help?
  • Where will you turn if you hit a hurdle or two on route?
Know your starting point
Understanding where you are now will help you plan your first course or bundle of courses.  Here are some questions for you to consider.

  • Do you have any relevant, valid and current qualifications?
  • How do you like to learn?
  • How easy do you find it to learn?
  • What is important about the learning environment?
  • Apart from the course, what else do you want to get from the course?
  • What is your budget for the course?
Questions about the course
Once you have an idea of where you want to be and where you are starting from, then ask these questions of the course providers. 

How long have you been teaching courses?
Which awarding body do you use for your recognised courses?
Which courses have you written yourself?
How do you keep students engaged after they finish a course with you?
Do you charge to come back and re-do your courses?
Can I easily get live assistance if I need it?
