MTBO steps to success

Attend an information session

Meet with us so we can tell you all about it and see how easy it is for you to get one step closer to your dream job/business. We will provide you with an MTBO program outline.


Fill in the MTBO application form and enrol in the program. A program fee applies.

Business training

A self-paced training program schedule will be set up so you can participate and still be able to balance work and family. The program contains 30 business contact hours providing excellent learning experiences across a number of areas, such as; Group Outdoor Personal Training (GOPT) session training, business administration, planning and marketing.

Program assessment

During the program we will chat with you and gauge your enjoyment level. We will take you through a Franchise Information session, so you and your support crew can learn all about the business model.

Reserve a franchise territory

We will invite you to assess the legal documents with a view to becoming a Franchisee (subject to program assessment). A fully refundable deposit is held while you assess the documents and while we hold a franchise territory for you

Sign the franchise agreement

Franchise agreement is signed and the Certificate IV in Personal Training course is booked. At the time of signing the document a deposit payment for the franchise territory is required. Step into Life will provide you with a scholarship for the CIV course. (N.B. Commencement with the franchise is subject to the successful completion of the CIV course.)
