Personal Trainer

“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.”

Lucy Oakman

Personal Trainer

"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.”
