Level 3 Personal Training Courses

Unlike other training providers that mass produce personal trainers on a production line, we enrol only small groups of students onto our courses to ensure you receive the highest level of training and support. In addition, through interactive e-learning and practical weekend workshops we offer a blended-learning approach giving you more time to hone your practical personal training skills under the supervision of an experienced tutor.
