Focus Fitness UK was established in 2011 by ex-professional footballers Gavin Heeroo and Dougie Freedman, bringing to the table everything they learned from the top-flight of the beautiful game. With three centres open in London, we are the first choice for health and fitness qualifications in the capital.
We believe opportunity is for everyone
We care about our people and will do the right thing when no-one is watching
Everything we do should be powerful enough to create a positive impact
We trust each other, we support each other and we win together
We aim to exceed expectations at all points in our learners journey
We strive relentlessly to inspire individuals and empower futures through education
To create successful and passionate fitness professionals who inspire and unlock the potential in people
There is a fine line between winning and losing. The most important thing we can do in any experience is making sure we appreciate the journey. At Focus Fitness UK, we are big believers in taking a step at a time and giving the process of becoming a professional the respect it requires. From onboarding you, introducing you to your mentors, guiding you through your course and after-care as you enter a profession; we will ensure you are prepared and well looked after to get off to a flying start in this new chapter of your life.
HOW YOU WILL FIT US INTO YOUR ALREADY BUSY SCHEDULE?
You can learn the entire diploma or simply upgrade your current skill level on a mid-week blended course (6 weeks) or a part-time (7 weekends) basis. We can certainly adapt our programme around your schedule so that you don’t miss out on this life-changing opportunity.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
There are various ways to pay for your course. Thanks to a government scheme introduced in 2013, your programme which would usually cost thousands of pounds can now be subsidised via 19+ government funding or 18+ personal loans which include some interest-free options.
The former would work the same way a student loan does for university undergraduates, you simply repay the loan in small instalments after you have been placed into employment.
This is an incredible opportunity as you would usually have to pay thousands of pounds up front for these courses!
For funding, monthly repayments will be based on your income and not the amount you borrowed. You do not start making repayments until your income is more than £25,000 per year.
For more information about repayments, head to Payments.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER
After successfully completing our program, you can take advantage of the fantastic connections we have with the largest health and fitness operators in London. From the UK’s premier gym chains to top health clubs, we have an array of options to pursue when you’ve finished our programme.
We host assessment days and employability days in-house where you will have the opportunity to meet all of the top gym operators in London. Focus Fitness UK takes great pride in guiding you into employment after you’ve graduated from our course – our job isn’t done until we’ve given you a platform to launch your career.
