Student Success Stories

I took my course 9 years ago, since then I have become manager of the gym I started at and now have become the area manager and am looking over 6 gyms around Doha. I have been sending my staff members to take the courses since becoming a manager, year after year they come back with more knowledge and are better prepared to be successful in each gym and continue to take educational workshops with IFA, the whole team is so helpful and passionate and care so deeply about our success.

I can’t recommend the IFA courses enough! I took my Fitness Instructor Course 5 years ago and took a workshop with another company and realized how great the education I received at IFA was! The tutors are all so helpful and genuinely care about my success! I’m so happy to have IFA to help me grow in my fitness career.

I went from working in a sports clothing store to following my dream of helping people in Fitness. IFA helped me complete my Personal Training Course when I was having a tough time in my career, and it helped me to move into a Job I love and I am so grateful for the trust they put in me and the knowledge they shared so that I can help other people get fit and healthy.

I took my Fitness Instructor Course while working at reception for a gym, being around people who were so passionate in fitness I caught the bug. I was so excited to find IFA and they gave me the all of the knowledge and confidence I needed to start my own professional fitness career. Since graduating I have moved to Abu Dhabi, and have used my certificate in my new role as a personal trainer and assistant manager of a female exclusive boutique gym.

It"s been almost ten years since I took my Fitness Instructor Course and Personal Trainer Course and have since opened my own Gym Franchise in Qatar! The knowledge I received at IFA really helped me to gain confidence in transitioning from the banking world into my passion of fitness. I always look to IFA when hiring new staff as I know first-hand, that their students have been given all the knowledge and skills to be successful in fitness
