All of our courses are accredited and certificated by Active IQ, the leading awarding body in the fitness industry and are recognised by CIMSPA.
We offer four course options to get you started on a new career path within the fitness industry, which can be completed on a full-time (Monday to Friday), part-time (weekends) or even online basis:
This is our most comprehensive course, with industry leading levels of face to face tuition on both full and part-time options. It allows learners who are new into the field of fitness to obtain an accredited qualification in fitness instruction along with a qualification in personal training. Graduates of the course will be able to join CIMSPA at level 3 and will be able to practice as a personal trainer in addition to being qualified to work in a gym setting. This increases the earning potential for those looking for a career in the fitness field.
This option is available to learners who are keen to take the first step towards working in the fitness industry. Upon completion you will be able to work in a gym setting as a qualified Fitness Instructor and join CIMSPA at Level 2. However, most learners find that it is worth considering completion of the Diploma qualification due to the additional earning potential this provides as a qualified personal trainer.
This option is available to learners who have already achieved the Level 2 Certificate in Gym Instructing (or equivalent). Upon completion you will be able to work as a personal trainer, either in a gym or freelance and join CIMSPA at level 3.
Our most flexible course option allowing you to start anytime and study at your own pace. With dedicated tutor support, this gives you the basic Level 2 Gym Instructing and Level 3 Personal Training qualifications required to work in the industry. If you would rather have more face to face tuition and some added value content such as Emergency First Aid at Work and postural assessment and correction please see the options above.
