Ben, Trainfitness's testimonial

Having completed the course at Trainfitness I was really pleased with the quality of the tutution. The course is pretty full on at times and there's lots of information to get your head around but our tutor Kate was brilliant at helping us all to make sure we understood it fully. Great bunch of people to work with and thank you for helping me get my PT qualification.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A PERSONAL TRAINING COURSE PROVIDER

As someone looking to become a personal trainer, a quick internet search will show you dozens of training providers offering an array of personal trainer courses. You’re spoilt for choice…or are you? Here are three things you should look out for before you decide on a training provider to study with.

1. How long have they delivered personal trainer courses?

What makes you more comfortable, studying with a company that’s delivered personal trainer courses for 2 years or 12?

We’ve delivered personal trainer courses for 17 years and have trained thousands of people just like you. You can read what some of them have to say about their experience with us here.

2. Do the personal trainer courses they deliver lead to a REPs-recognised qualification?

Training providers deliver courses. These courses can lead to a qualification. For a qualification to be recognised by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs), it must meet certain criteria and be designed and awarded by an awarding organisation. There are a few these awarding organisations, perhaps chief amongst them in the active leisure sector is YMCA Awards and Active IQ. Training providers will normally advertise on their websites which awarding organisations approve them to deliver the personal trainer courses they offer. Despite this, you should call the awarding organisation directly and confirm that the training provider you’re looking at is approved by them. You can call YMCA Awards on 0207 343 1800 and Active IQ on 0845 688 1278.

We’re an approved centre for both. Our YMCA Awards training provider number is EDF025 and our Active IQ training provider number is 0045.

3. Are they authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)?

If you’re looking to pay for your personal trainer course via a payment plan, the training provider must be authorised by the FCA to offer you a payment plan with charges or interest. A training provide must also be authorised by the FCA if the payment plan is repayable over more than 12 months or by more than 12 instalments. You can find out if a training provider is authorised by the FCA here https://register.fca.org.uk/

A company that is authorised by the FCA must display its FCA registration number on its website, emails and letterhead.

We’re authorised and regulated by the FCA under registration number 628699. You can find our registration details right now on the Financial Services Register above and in the footer of each of our web pages.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A PERSONAL TRAINING COURSE

Not all personal training courses are created equal. Here are three important questions to ask when choosing a personal training course.

1. Does the personal training course include both level 2 and level 3 qualifications?

In the UK today, to register as a personal trainer with the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) you generally need to hold two qualifications: a Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing – Gym-based Exercise; and a Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training.

Be on the lookout for personal training courses that offer just a Level 3 personal trainer qualification. They don’t always include the necessary Level 2 qualification, the price for which you’ll have to add on. Not quite the bargain you thought you’d bagged. Always ask the training provider if the personal training course you’re looking at contains both the Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications above.

All of our personal training courses include both of these qualifications as standard.

2. What qualification does the personal training course lead to - a certificate or a diploma?

‘Certificate’ and ‘Diploma’ are not interchangeable terms – there’s a difference between them. A personal training course that leads to a REPs-recognised diploma qualification covers more information than one that leads to a certificate qualification. Unfortunately, some training providers advertise courses as diplomas when those courses actually lead to a certificate qualification.

Always ask the training provider for the official name of the qualification you’ll receive from the awarding organisation when you complete your personal training course. Hint - if diploma isn’t in the title of the qualification, it’s not a diploma qualification.

Our personal training certificate course leads to a certificate qualification, and our personal training diploma courses lead to a diploma qualification.

3. Are the CPD courses recognised by REPs?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and CPD courses offer fitness professionals the opportunity to upskill and further their education. The Register of Exercise Professionals, or REPs, is an independent, public register that recognises certain fitness qualifications and CPD courses in the UK. Although it’s not compulsory for you to join REPs, doing so shows employers and clients that you meet a certain standard of competency.

To join REPs you need to submit proof of the relevant REPs-recognised Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications you’ve achieved. To stay on the Register you need to achieve 24 REPs CPD points every two years, and you do this by completing REPs-recognised CPD courses. Each REPs-recognised CPD course carries REPs CPD points.

IF A CPD COURSE ISN’T RECOGNISED BY REPS, YOU WON’T GET REPS CPD POINTS. You can find out if a training provider’s CPD courses are recognised by REPs here https://qualitytraining.skillsactive.com/

All of our CPD courses are recognised by REPs.

BECOMING A PERSONAL TRAINER

The fitness industry is constantly changing but one constant has been the demand for personal training by health club members. In 2016, the number of members in clubs grew by 5.3%. IHRSA also states that nearly 14% of health club members use personal trainers and this figure is growing. With statistics showing both of these figures increasing in the coming years, there’s no better time to become a personal trainer.

Below is some information you might find helpful as you look to start your career in personal training.

Who should become a personal trainer?

If you have a passion for fitness, a good work ethic and a love of helping people reach their goals, then you likely have what it takes to be a personal trainer. We’ve helped chefs, bankers, school leavers, HGV drivers, mums, dads and even grandparents become personal trainers.
So regardless of what you’ve done before now, with the above qualities we can help you too.

So regardless of what you’ve done before now, with the above qualities we can help you too.

Where can I work as a personal trainer?

Once you’ve graduated from your personal trainer course and obtained the relevant insurance, you can start working as a personal trainer. If you’re looking to work in a health club or leisure centre, they generally work with personal trainers on an employed or self-employed basis.

If employed by a club, your personal training clients will normally pay the club directly for their personal training sessions and you’ll earn a set salary. Your earning potential therefore is generally your salary.

If self-employed, your personal training clients will generally pay you directly and you’ll pay the club a rental fee for your use of the premises. Your earning potential is then down to the number of clients you train and the fee you charge them.

While these are the two most common employment scenarios after your personal training course, some clubs offer slight variations of them and hybrid models. You can read more about personal training jobs here.

Our Career ConciergeTM can introduce our personal training graduates to leading employers, agencies, and recruiters. Read more about this very special service here.

HOW SOON CAN I START MY PERSONAL TRAINER COURSE?

You can start any of our personal trainer courses at any time. Once enrolled, you get instant access to our award winning e-learning system. With it you can manage all of your learning, including studying the online theory; booking onto a course or into training days and assessment days; and requesting and viewing your course certificates. You can also contact the Learner Support team directly from within the Student Desktop.

Regardless of the personal trainer course option you choose with us, you’ll first need to complete some of the online course material. Therefore, enrolling well before the start date of your course or the scheduled training day(s) gives you the best opportunity to be fully prepared for when you attend.
