      I completed the Level 2 Exercise to Music course with AF fitness education, It was the step I decided to take to change careers. I had no previous experience but I felt it did not matter as Anna taught it so well. She was supportive and made my career change not scary at all. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and working with Anna. I am looking forward to now doing a job I really love thanks to the training from AF fitness education! Highly recommend!

      I decided to have a change of direction with my career. I didn’t really know what to expect but Anna soon put us at ease. The course was quite intense but so interesting and a great deal of fun too.
    I hadn’t studied for many years and so it was a huge personal challenge. I can’t tell you how amazing it felt and what a huge sense of achievement it was when I passed. I am now teaching and loving it!
    Anna kept us grounded and really supported us all the way. I would thoroughly recommend her course.

      I had an amazing experience! Anna is knowledgable, talented and most of all supportive. She draws on her many years of experience to deliver high quality fitness education that prepared me in the industry. Having taught other disciplines for many years I was experienced, however I was still able to learn so much from this very skilled tutor. Thank you Anna!
