What People Are Saying


I highly recommend Pro Series to anyone serious about their career in health and fitness.  Having the support of the Pro Series means I can tap into the workshops that I need extra training in or that I'm interested in.

There is something for everyone. The workshops are well organised, informative and you take away another skill set to add value back to your clients and business.

I recommend Pro Series to anyone who wants to further their knowledge in the fitness industry.

I really value my Pro Series membership. I have been to both the Kettlebell Fundamentals and Pre and Post Pregnancy workshops. The course material and hands on practical elements helped me pick new concepts quickly so I could apply them to my client's exercise prescription.
