What’s it all about?

This course will provide you with the skills you need to have a successful career as personal trainer. You will develop skills to help individuals achieve their health, fitness and lifestyle goals. The course is delivered with face-to-face training to give you the practical experience of communicating, assessing and motivating your clients. We believe that training you in a gym and studio environment, with tutors and peers, will give you the right skills and experience to start your PT career.

Some experience of gym-based exercises, including free weights, is highly recommended.

The course requires physical exertion and individual participation is essential; therefore, a degree of physical fitness is necessary.

There is also an element of communication (discussing, presenting, reading and writing) involved and learners should have basic skills in communication pitched at level 2.
