Diary Dates!

Information on the Community

Faster has always had the most envied community in the industry, so much so, that some trainers think we are like a cult.  We are not.  Instead, we lead the industry by inviting you back to sit in on the courses you previously paid for, without asking for any more payments.  Our group chats and live hangouts are built to help passionate Personal Trainers to interact, grow and face truths about the industry that can challenge and ultimately improve the individual.  We do go to fight for each other, as you would expect, but we also support through good times and bad time.  Faster is a real family, a place for ups and downs and somewhere that you will be free to be you and develop into the trainer you want to be.

Our course delivery and community support systems are designed to give you safe spaces to learn, grow and become the trainer the industry deserves. These tabs below share the dates we will get together online, so you can have a community without wasted commuting time, and make friends way before you ever even meet.

Meeting on Zoom

Zoom is an app that is similar to Skype, we use it to deliver online training in a way that is both interactive and non-intrusive.  It gives you the ability to switch off your camera or microphone, you can privately chat with other students on the call via text (including the Tutor, who can then answer anonymous questions)

Our lectures for courses have the lesson and then a Q&A session, we do not record these so you can feel free that you have a space to learn and make mistakes without having any come back.

Level 2/3 - These meetups will be for the most popular lesson the group needs tackling that week, plus online help with Q&A's

FASTER courses - These will rotate through content as a normal classroom course would, with the support of pre-recorded videos if you miss a hangout.  As with all our courses, as long as you stay active and inside our guideline then you have access to these with no additional fee after your original fee.

#FSQUAD - This is a bi-weekly business topic and discussion aimed at improving your Personal Training business.  We will have guest experts and spend time helping your business.

Content Community - A weekly group, that is free with #FSQUAD, but also available as a monthly subscription, where we build, share and support content.

Faster Social - This is a monthly networking check-in available to all of our students to help connect, answer generic questions and just to keep you in touch with other Personal Trainers in an industry that can be lonely around friends.

AIQ Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer Courses

Every two weeks we have a group drop-in to help to discuss what is needed to get you through the course.  These weeks we will run support lessons as well, based on the group's feedback of what people are struggling with or would like to re-cap.

Level 2 and 3 hangouts happen at the same time, more details will be shared each week though.
(1-1 hangouts are still available as you need them)
