Welcome To Image Fitness Training – Ireland’s leading Fitness Course Provider.
The National Elite Fitness Professional Certificate is Ireland’s most modern and effective Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer qualification, accredited by the European Health and Fitness Association.
EHFA is the EU approved industry standards setting body for the European health and fitness sector.
IFT is the brainchild of its directors Simon Creedon & Conor Whyte and was Established in 2010. Having both trained and worked in the fitness industry for a combined 12 years, they recognised that upon graduation as a personal trainer previously, students needed further ongoing “mainstream gym training” before being able to seek employment.
They developed a comprehensive Fitness/Group and Personal Training course and after stringent assessments and protocol evaluation, received accreditation from EHFA / Reps Ireland, where students could avail of not only the highest level education but also industry ready experience.
Fast forward to today and IFT has developed into a multi-national education provider, now accredited by not only EHFA and Ireps, but also CYQ, ITEC and Active-IQ and we deliver the most comprehensive courses on the forefront of todays’ industry.
We are the only company to continually reassess current industry trends each term and adjust out courses to ensure that our students graduate fully equipped to take the industry by storm, be it for work in a mainstream gym, to work on cruise ships all over the world, to emigrate to Canada/ Australia etc. or to become entrepreneurs and establish their own Personal Training businesses.
Our Ethos at IFT, “Develop, Prosper & Excel in the fitness industry”, is to provide each and every student with the technical knowhow and skills to succeed and ensure that they reach their full potential. We employ a team of highly qualified lecturers, who are current industry leaders in their own right, to provide students with the best possible professional learning experience.
Our reputation has grown since IFT conception as our commitment and dedication to education provision exceeds all others. We have developed long standing credibility within the industry from club/gym managers and owners, staff and trainers worldwide, the majority of which come back to IFT to hire our graduates directly as they too recognise the superior performance level of our students upon graduation from our courses.
Here at IFT we run our courses in state of the art facilities nationwide. We currently run our Irish courses in Cork, Galway & Dublin venues. (See www.imageft.ie as we have course locations in 28 cities over there). Each venue has been equipped with specifically acquired equipment to cater for out specialist programmes and curriculum.
