What Our Customers Say
I undertook the level 2 gym instructor then level 3 personal trainer courses which were held in London and hosted by Brent and Mark respectively. I was very impressed by their tutorship and how they ran the course and engaged with us during the learning and assessment weekend. They both had a friendly and down to earth attitude but were also focused on ensuring we learnt the most we could. They also prepared us very well for the exams and assessments and I always felt confident that I would pass

I am 21 years old. I have been involved in the sporting/fitness environment since I was a child, so I had no doubt but to pursue a career in the sporting environment. I have recently just graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a 2:1 studying sports coaching. However despite completing a sport coaching degree my heart was set on becoming a personal trainer so I had no hesitation but to complete my level 2 in personal training.
