I have recently completed Performance Training Academy’s level 3 Sports Massage Therapy Diploma and I cannot rate the whole process highly enough!
Being a serving Soldier, I wanted to use one of my Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) to gain a qualification that I could use to make some extra money in my spare time.
From my very first contact with Ashley, he was fantastic. He understood my situation, and as he knew the system very well, he guided me through the joining up process with ease making my life a lot easier! As I have ‘a day job’, he talked me through how the course would run, and how I could fit it in with my busy schedule.
The course itself was run from Blackstone Sports Therapy in Exeter by Mark Blackstone. All I can say about Mark is, OUTSTANDING!! The tuition, from a subject matter expert and an all-round good guy, was excellent. He passed on his knowledge and expertise along with the official course content, ensuring we got the very most out of each lesson. The course itself was quite small and intimate, this ensured you got all the attention you needed from the tutor. Due to the close working nature of the course I even made some new friends out of it!!
Overall, top marks for Performance Training Academy, top marks for the course and I would give the highest recommendation to anyone wishing to train in the Health and Fitness industry.
Thank you for everything!
Oliver qualified as a Personal Trainer in February 2014. As soon as he was qualified he set up his company ‘Element6’. After only a few short months in the industry he has already established himself and has many great ventures on the horizon.
“Prior to qualifying as a Personal Trainer my only experience of the health & fitness industry had been as an amateur cyclist and on and off gym user.
I wanted to qualify as a health & fitness professional as part of a career change whilst also studying nutrition and thought that it would be a great string to my bow.
Studying with Performance Training was great. The course content was thoroughly covered with any necessary additional offered out of classroom hours. The tutor shared from his years of successful experience in the industry to bring a whole extra element to the course.
I did both the Level 2 Gym Instructor course and Level 3 Personal Trainer course back to back, and both courses were great, professional, flexible and with a real personal touch. And left me with the real world skills to go straight into the industry.
I went straight on from passing the Level 3 Course to being a freelance personal trainer, and now, a couple of months on, I have established my initial body of clients, and set up an exercise class, which is going really well. I would fully recommend Performance training as a great all round training academy.”
I have been involved with a variety of sports all my life. I currently compete at national level bodybuilding/figure with the BNBF (British Natural Bodybuilding Federation). I have been doing this for the past 3 years and take my training and nutrition seriously.
I chose to do this particular course as I wanted to help others reach their fitness goals. Performance Training Academy came very highly recommended to me. Ashley the course tutor was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and made it very clear and easy to understand. He also made the course fun which worked well for me. If I was struggling to understand a certain subject he would explain it again and again until I got it.
I am now currently working as a fitness instructor at Precision Fitness and Performance based in Exeter. I am really enjoying it and looking forward to doing further courses with Performance Training in the very near future.
I highly recommend them for anyone looking to get into the industry.”
I currently work as a self employed beauty therapist. I have a real passion for fitness training and decided to do my level 2 gym instructors qualification with Performance Training Academy. I then wanted to go on to do the exercise to music qualification as I thought that I would like to be a spinning instructor. However I found the course a lot more interesting, fun and inspiring than I thought I would and I have now started my level 3 personal training qualification.
From this I have already gained a waiting list of clients that would like me to train them as many if my clients think that it’s too late or that they are to old to get into fitness.
I loved every minute of the course I found the majority of the content easy to learn and any areas that I was unsure of Ash was always available to help. I can highly recommend Ash as a teacher and PTA as an excellent environment to learn in and will continue to enrol in courses there throughout my fitness career.
