How often do you get the opportunity to step out of your own gym and world to work on up levelling yourself and your business?

The truth is, as leaders, we need constant coaching and training. We need to step out of our comfort zone and be around like minded people to then step back into our world and improve it.

Our employees and clients stop growing when we do.

This 4 day intensive internship steps you into our gym, Functional Fitness Australia to develop you as a coach and individual.

Secure your spot now!

What is it?

THM Internship is an intimate 4 day intensive where we get to hone in and work on your personal growth and development in the fitness industry.

The reality is if you are experiencing a road block in business or the next stage of your development as a trainer then that road block is you. The only way that you can breakthrough that roadblock is to up-level yourself.

I don’t have a gym or a business, Is this still for me?

How long does each day run for?

Each day runs from 9-3 not including training which still allows the local Canberrans to get to their business and PT work before and after the theory and practical sessions.

Should I expect to train?

There will be opportunities to train and we are most likely to go through some physical/technical components within the subjects themselves. You are also welcome to train either side of the intern hours.

Can I sit in on any classes that FFA runs?

Absolutely. We run sessions each morning and evening where we will have extra curriculum activities available for those who want to observe sessions running.

I can’t afford it upfront, can I pay it off?

Yes, you can. You will however forego any sales or discounts. You are able to pay over 2 or 3 agreed upon installments. We just need your first payment to secure your spot as this is limited to a certain number of people at a time.

I have another question about the internship, who can I contact?

Please contact Dave at with any other questions you may have and we can either answer them over email or organise a phone call.
