In this feature we’re revealing the reasons why our students chose to become a Personal Trainer.


Rebecca – Stevenage

“I left school without many qualifications but with a love of sport and all things fitness! I realised I could turn this into my career and trained as a Fitness Instructor. From there the sky’s the limit. Qualifying as a Personal Trainer has opened so many doors. Today I train clients inside and outside of the gym – its great doing a job that gives so much back to helping others.”

Simon – Leicester

“Being made redundant was a blow, but with enough cash in my pocket I decided to take the plunge. I’ve learnt so much from my course and by the end was confident in how to set up my own PT business. I now see more than 30 clients a week with time in between for my own training and looking after the business side of things.”

Bhanvna – North London

“Part personal trainer, part life coach. No two days are the same and its inspiring working in an industry that’s always evolving.”

Leon – Camden

“Just qualified with my Level 3 and have secured my first Personal Training job. Can’t wait to get started.”

Amy – Luton

“With 2 children now in school, I wanted to be active and fit my work in around childcare. Personal Training is just the ticket!”

Lara – Milton Keynes

“Having switched my career from a teacher to a Personal Trainer – I was daunted at first to take such a step. However, now I am working with clients and making progress I feel the sacrifice has all been worthwhile.”

Ben – Slough

“I left the army in 2013 I was looking for a career that still involved me being active and assisting others to enjoy the sensation of feeling and looking better. Becoming a Personal Trainer has become the perfect job.”

Candice – Watford

“What can I say? Loved the Level 3 course and looking to start my career in 2015 with a local gym.”
