    Why do people want a personal fitness trainer?

    It’s easy to join a gym. Many people start the new year with a resolution to get fit, but it’s hard to stick to it and even harder when you don’t know how to train properly.

    That’s where a fitness trainer comes in.

    Part trainer, part psychologist, a personal fitness trainer uses a solid understanding of how the body works, how to work different muscle groups, and motivational psychology to help people reach the fitness levels they’ve dreamed of.

    REPs accredited qualifications

    We offer two REPs recognised, QCF accredited Active IQ qualifications. If you want to work at a gym then these are what employers will be looking for on your CV.

    Study the theory from home. Complete your practical training at our gym

    If you struggle to find time to study every day at a traditional college, a home learning theory course is an ideal solution. Over 120,000 people have studied with us from home and enjoyed full support from a tutor.

    You’ll study the theory course whenever you want, at your own pace. There are no tight deadlines (you’ll have up to a year).

    Your 1-day practical training session is held in a modern gym in the midlands.

    Award-winning tutor support

    Our courses are studied entirely from home- but you still enjoy help at every step of the way from your dedicated expert tutor who can be contacted via our award-winning e-learning site.
