WHAT CLIENTS SAY
Fitness has always had a solid place in my life and with a passion for being strong and a desire to stay healthy and feel good in my own body, I decided I wanted to explore and expand my knowledge. For my passion was to be shared to help others. So I then went in search of a quality online fitness platform. One that would not only teach me but also hold me accountable with my learnings. When I found MMISS I made sure that I researched to ensure it was a perfect match for me. Mark McGaw’s history as a professional NRL player, Gladiator and tv fitness host helped me make my decision easily. The saying goes to be successful follow people who have lived success. I signed up and started my journey within this industry through the support, help and teachings of MMISS. Fast forward to completing my certs, and becoming a trainer, my new knowledge helped me to not only compete myself In IFBB but to also helping hundreds of people with their lifestyle choices, fitness goals, along with creating a winning team of 14 fitness competitors walking them through their IFBB winning successes. If your serious about fitness, focused, passionate, self-motivated then this is the course for you. To be the best, you must be trained by the best.
My experience at MMISS was nothing short of amazing! Studying under Mark and his team, I knew I was learning from industry professionals, past and present, who set the standard. The MMISS educators are second-to-none; their knowledge and support combined with world-class educational resources raise the bar for fitness courses. In fact, before I’d even completed my initial studies I knew I would enrol in additional courses with MMISS – once you start learning from these guys, you won’t want to stop! I became certified in 2019 feeling confident I was more than just industry-ready, and went straight to work with a leading local personal training and group fitness studio.
Even after my course was finished, I still receive regular educational and informational emails from MMISS that continue to motivate and inspire me to learn more, do more – be more!

Dr Alec Thornton
In deciding to make a career change to fitness from academia, I researched Cert IV in Fitness programs available to me that had a combination of credibility and flexibility in course delivery during the Covid-19 pandemic. After discussions with Mark McGaw and his team, I chose MMISS due to its solid 25+ year reputation as a fitness education provider, and MMISS pioneered online fitness course delivery in Australia. I wanted the best, as my intention is to apply my knowledge and skills as a fitness professional in Europe. Through my learning experiences with MMISS, and subsequent experience as a practicing personal trainer in Australia, I feel very confident in doing so. Thanks Mark!!
My name is Tracey Burgess and I am the General Manager of iGym247 group. I have been personally working with the Mark McGaw Institute of sports science since 2013 when I started in this position, doing my Cert 3 and 4 with Mark.
I personally found the course very detailed and well structured. Mark always gives one on one support to all his students to make sure they graduate with the best knowledge possible in both personal training but also setting up their business model.
It has been a great pleasure to also be involved in Marks mentorship program in which I now have some of the best trainers in the industry after graduating.
I would recommend The Mark McGaw Institute to anyone wanting to pursue a career in fitness.
Price ,efficiency and convenience are the greatest advantages of the MMISS. For the same certificate you can hardly find a lower price than the MMISS. The courses can be all done online without any time restriction (deadline), which may be the most convenient and comfortable choice under current COVID 19 situation. Every time I finish a small block, I get the feedback in a very short time from the assessor, which is very efficient. Thanks for Mark and the assessor Steven for their excellent work.
Mark its Kelly Smith from iGym Kurri, I just wanted to tell you that todays course was fantastic, I was so impressed with all the information I received in such a short time ,the two ladies were great they made me feel really comfortable the whole thing was great .
Mark could you please send me the link for the first aid question regards Kelly.

Hi Mark, just to let you know… I’ve started work on Certificate IV in Fitness, Personal trainer course already… I have found it much more in depth than the Certificate III in Fitness, Gym Instructor course which requires more reading time. I’m reading up on periodisation, rehabilitation and sport specific training etc. Currently I’m reading the text you supplied and the basic strength/conditioning manual, your workbooks are very in depth and truly separates the men from the boys. ……Excellent stuff!!!!
Natalie Howden / Company CEO
I became a qualified Personal Trainer on June 12, 2013 and picked up business immediately. I gained enormous confidence from Mark, his course is second to none, so I knew I could go out straight away and put it to action straight away.
Neil Peters / Competitive Athlete
As a National Level competitive athlete, I was no novice to physical training and nutrition. However, Mark’s hands on approach to teaching core concepts helped me take my own training to a whole new level. More importantly, Mark made a determined effort to impart as much of his personal wealth of knowledge and experience from the Fitness Industry onto me so I could be well placed to become the most professional and well-rounded competitive personal trainer market. With Mark in your corner, you can have the confidence you have the best tools in the business to give your future clients the professional service they deserve.

National UK Body Builder and Gladiator Hunter
I became interested in fitness when I was around 12 after watching Rocky, 1, 2 and 3, this being in a 6 hour cinema marathon – from then on I was hooked on bodybuilding – my first body building show was at 14 and after winning Junior Mr UK, I was spotted in a bodybuilding magazine and head hunted for Gladiators and won the ultimate gladiator competition. I chose MMISS due to its reputation, for being an in the trenches, science based, certification. This gave me an edge in fitness as both competitor and the running of my business.
Shevon Gee / Fitness Competitor
I am a fitness competitor… the MMISS course was invaluable in helping me further my understanding of how the body adapts to exercise and nutrition… this intern has helped me in my endeavors as a fitness professional The MMISS staff were invaluable resource and support. I now run my own fitness trainer business and love it!
Claudia Klein / Student
Mark is an amazing fitness tutor and I am grateful to learn from someone that is successful in the fitness and sports industry. He knows what he is talking about and explains everything in great detail. After doing my certificate 3 & 4, I have been confident in entering the fitness workforce as a personal trainer immediately. Not only have I been able to apply what I have learned to training myself, which resulted in me competing in a few national bodybuilding competitions and doing really well, but I have also been able to practice what I have learned from the fitness course and apply it to the workforce with great acceptance and feedback from my clients.
The course is a good balance between theory and practice and Mark responds very quickly to his emails and calls if required. I find this really important in doing online courses; the be able to communicate often and directly to the tutor. I would recommend this course to anyone who is serious about wanting to become a successful personal trainer.
