The success of our students is what drives us at the Australian Institute of Fitness Chadstone, so when they achieve their goals, we like to shout it from the rooftops.

“I will never forget my tribes members and the friendships I’ve made over the last 4 months. The encouragement and support from the coaches also the fun and uplifting energy of the institute.”

“The work experience was great because having to go out and immerse yourself in the industry helped to make sure I knew what to expect before becoming a trainer which I feel took a big part in preparing me for the industry”

Makayla Rodriguez
AIF Warrior

I found the institute and the course to be a very positive experience. The course provided a strong foundation for my transition into the fitness world and I have continued to build on it ever since. I loved the environment at the Institute, particularly the fact that it has its own gym on campus. Everything in one place! Also the support from the staff and trainers made doing the course enjoyable
