What Our Students Are Saying

Melissa Lang

The whole course from start to finish was well prepared and thought through

Ashley is a fantastic teacher. He is friendly, Very knowledgable and down to earth which makes the training a lot more enjoyable.
The whole course from start to finish was well prepared and thought through. Every practical day was great fun and I learnt a lot. I enjoyed meeting the same group of people each time and building lasting friendships. The theory for the course is perfect as you can do it in your own time in and around busy lifestyles which is perfect for some like me with work commitments and 3 children. I continued to finish my level 2 and started my level 3 straight after and I have just competently completed my final exam all thanks to Ashley @ Performance Training Academy!

I would recommend Performance Training Academy to anyone thinking of taking the course

My education with Performance Training Academy was direct and efficient, I conducted my learning on a blended learning basis. I learnt the theory part of the course with one to one help from the course tutor, and I joined a small group to carry out our practical education. It enabled the delivery of the course content to suit my needs.

I successfully achieved my qualification within my needed time scale, learning and retaining more information then I thought I would, as I usually struggle in class-based environments, so with this, I was really impressed and thankful.

I would recommend Performance Training Academy to anyone thinking of taking the course. Their deliverance of the content will keep you engaged and interested throughout the course, they also provide ongoing support after you have completed and begin your career as a Personal Trainer.

I am now working as a recognised Personal Trainer out of a gym in Dubai.

Performance Training Academy work their hardest to help all students achieve their individual goals within the course

Before starting the course I had no previous coaching or teaching experience. I was a regular gym goer myself but had no base learning in how to instruct. I have always enjoyed working with people and being social, I am a qualified hairdresser as well and have always liked to build relationships and work on self-improvement and care. 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. My tutor Stuart and Ash who runs Performance Training Academy work their hardest to help all students achieve their individual goals within the course. It’s a very friendly and relaxed environment with a professional feel – which is exactly what they emphasise you convey to your clients.

Now I have qualified I plan on setting up all of my social media bases and working on my fitness personality through these and start to gain clients. I will be working for myself and then eventually look into potentially relocating and working from a gym. I will also be using Ash and Stu in the future for any programme queries or business advice!
