Charlie King

TRAINFITNESS have been training people for 16 years so I knew I would be in good hands. Studying full-time meant having face-to-face instruction from my tutors, which I found helpful. It was great knowing the learner support team was there seven days a week if I needed it. I definitely recommend TRAINFITNESS personal training courses!

Steph Elswood

It was so nice to be in an environment with like-minded people that have similar goals and values to my own. I learnt a lot from my tutor but also from the other students. Everyone had such a diverse way and views and I loved learning how other people enjoyed training.
