Our aim is to develop outstanding personal trainers that are educated to a much higher level than the industry-standard. We have developed the course content around our philosophy of detailed screening including postural assessment, movement competency and functional capacity. We emphasise mobility, stability and flexibility through the selection and administration of the most appropriate training methods, ultimately leading to more effective training sessions and the achievement of the client's long-term goals.

 

Our course is accredited by Active IQ, the leading awarding organisation in the health and fitness sector. Upon completion you'll achieve the Active IQ Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training. You'll learn how to conduct detailed lifestyle appraisal including posture & movement analysis so you can best identify your client's needs. You'll then learn how to plan and deliver effective training programmes with a range of dynamic, functional exercises.

 

Upon completion of the course you'll be a fully qualified, Level 3 personal trainer and be able to join REPs as well as take out the necessary public liability insurance to take on paying clients. You'll develop the skills, confidence and knowledge to work with a wide range of clients, helping them to achieve their health and fitness goals. 

The course equips you with the skills to conduct fitness appraisals, develop effective training programmes using a range of advanced training methods, motivate clients, and provide dietary advice.

 

You'll be able to seek work within a gym or health club, and we're confident that the skills you'll gain on the course will set you apart from other candidates. Alternatively, you may choose to set up your own personal training business. Our course will enable you to effectively recruit new clients and meet their needs through advanced screening techniques, lifestyle advice and training methods.

The course consists of a series of practical days, with additional independent study completed prior to and during the course. As soon as you book onto the course you will receive your course manual and access to our outstanding e-learning materials. This will allow you to study at your own pace and at a time that fits with your existing commitments.  Your tutor will be available to provide support and guidance via phone and email throughout the course. 

The qualification is assessed via a range of methods including practical observation, worksheets and multiple choice tests. We encourage you to take a case study approach; identifying a client (such as a friend or family member) to work with throughout the course.
