For Trainers who want to reach their potential 

FTE 2024

Watching trainers build their skills in research, biomechanics, exercise design, programme design, business skills and then see them go on and train the injured, ill, athletic, weight loss, weight gain, beginners, old, young, elite and all the clients in between is the reason I built this course. 

In 2010 I wrote the first course to give everything I knew to the most important trainers in my business.

It was taught over a 4 day weekend that people could return to.  Every year I vowed to re-write it and add in everything I had improved on that year, and every year I would have an open ended invite without additional course costs, to come back.

In 2024 it now takes me 11 Days of live training over three visits, and over 40 sessions of zoom lectures to produce and maintain the best trainers in my industry.


Once a year you get chance to sign up, and then you have to wait a year.  The first people to commit will get the best price that year, I reward the decision.  Scroll down the page to learn more and see if you are right to join our group.

  • You are a great trainer that wants to be better
  • You are a great trainer that wants to get all their education in one place
  • You are a great trainer that wants to mentor new trainers into the industry
  • You are a great trainer that wants to be in a group of other trainers who support and encourage
  • You see this investment as a career investment, not a course
  • You do not want to be average or normal, you want to have the skills to find out for yourself and challenge

My advice is to read everything on this page, this course will change you for the better if you take it.

More than a course, this is an experience that can repeat for your whole career and will keep pushing you every time you turn up.  You will need to turn up though. 

At the end of the first year you will be so far ahead of the industry in your skills set that you will stand out.  We drip feed the skills so that you don't notice at first, but by the end of the year you are even more amazing that you are now. 

You will probably come back year on year, even if you take a gap, or split the lives over two years.

Better to you will mean more confidence in who you are, what you do and how you do it. 

Better will mean you will be our expert in your area, and you will get to learn from the other students as well as our tutor.

Better will mean you will have support 1-1, from students and John (the author), whenever you need it, through the highs and lows of working in this industry.

On all courses FASTER gives a price transparency statement to allow you to see why we charge what we do and the best way for you to get the best price.  This is important to Faster as a company because once you sign up we want to keep you as a part of our community for as long as we can.

The FTE is a multi-year product, so the payment is to cover the costs of running the course, developing and growing its content and quality each year and allowing the tutor/author to put time into 1-1 support and additional work for you around the main course.  Due to the fact that FASTER does not have a course hierarchy to get into the FTE course, then someone can jump in right at the top and get to many of the other courses in the FASTER catalogue.  Finally as we keep numbers of new students to a reasonable level (we average 4 new students a year, we have capacity for 15 maximum), the price reflects what is required to run the course effectively.

As an FTE student you get to benefit from many of our other courses for free, you will get to teach some of our courses to local students that want to be as good as you, and you get support with everything from business to technical skills outside of the main course. 

After researching and also taking many of the top courses in the world in fitness I believe we offer way above £12000 worth of value in this course.  However the price is built to attract people in and keep them coming back.  Some students have been coming back for over 10 years (yes Charlie, I am pointing at you). If you were to pay full price and do that it works out at £550 a year and includes new courses as well as the current ones!

So the full price for the course for 2024 is £5500


Faster is a small in size (large in reach and content) business, I (John) run it and make all the decisions.  The business is self funded and so cash flow is one of the most important aspects of the business. This means that if you want the best price, then being able to pay up front, or monthly with a large deposit, will get you that.  Alternatively, if you are the perfect student and this is the perfect course and you would prefer to spread the costs of the course, then a call could see me do a lower deposit and spread the payments over 12 or 24 months. You wont pay more than £5800 this year though and that would be spread over 33 months.  I will do a better deal for the first people to sign up (we will definitely have some in September) because I like to reward people who jump in early.  Also if you start early you can get into some of the other courses before we start which will be beneficial to you. 

For the best deal then speak to John on WhatsApp by text or call. That way you can bespoke your payment and build a learning plan.
