certified personal trainer courses

Gym and Personal Training bundle offer (NEW) with extras included



This amazing personal training bundle course is made up of various courses which will allow you to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to operate as a personal trainer.  It includes our level 2 gym instructor course and level 3 personal training course, both with new content.  The additional courses also included are emergency first aid,  and also various other CPD courses which will enable you to teach in other disciplines that are of interest for you (see list below).


The first 5 days of the course are for the gym instructor part, this is taught through blended learning which is a mixture of home study/e-learning for the theory aspect and face to face training covering the practical elements of the course. Once booked on to the course you will be sent out your course manual and set up for your e-learning to support you through your study. You will then attend your 5 chosen training days with your allocated tutor covering the practical elements of the course, followed by one assessment day for your theory and practical assessments.  Some candidates prefer to complete their theory assessments earlier which is an option available.

The course content covers:

  • Principles of anatomy, physiology and fitness
  • Professionalism and customer care for fitness instructors
  • Health and safety in the fitness environment
  • Planning and instructing gym based exercise

This part of the course is assessed through written questions, assignments, theory assessments and practical observations.  Some assessments are completed as home study, some during the attendance days and some on an allocated assessment date.  Please note that if you can not make your allocated assessment date for this course there is an option to change to a different date.


Once you have completed your gym instructor part you can then move on to the personal training part of the course, this again is taught through blended learning and  5 attendance dates.

  • Applied anatomy and physiology for exercise, health and fitness
  • The principles of nutrition and their application to exercise and health
