How we can help you succeed?

Book a course consultation.

Before investing into any career, a chat with an existing professional is always beneficial.

These consultations are not a sales call, they are to enable you to ask any questions that you may have about the course structure, content and importantly what your options are once you are qualified.

"The course content is up to date and relevant in todays's ever changing world of fitness and health. I managed to do my study while still undertaking my full time job as a professional rugby player due to the flexibility of the course..."

Tom Johnson - Ex-England and Exeter Chiefs professional rugby player.

Tom studied with us in 2016 towards the end of his rugby career. He is now a fully recognised Personal Trainer and runs his own private gym in Exeter, Devon.

"I wanted to be a Personal Trainer because I became passionate about exercise and enjoyed learning new methods and wanted to share that with the wider world.

The course was a fantastic way to get a feel for the gym environment as it was based in a working gym. It’s a very friendly and relaxed environment with a professional feel – which is exactly what they emphasise you convey to your clients."

Lily Burks - Personal Trainer
