Flexible Study Options

Study Options


All of our personal training courses have online course material that you will complete as home study via our award-wining learning management system. Technology is in our DNA - we were the first fitness course provider in the UK to offer online learning, and the first to offer a mobile app so that you could also study on the go. The minute you enrol you can log on to our website or mobile app, get instant access to the online course material and start your course.

We offer three study options for most of our personal trainer courses – Distance, Part Time (Part Time Saturdays, Part Time Sundays or Part Time Evenings) and Full Time – and each study option has a different attendance requirement: for the Distance study option you will book onto and attend assessment days; for the Part Time or Full Time study options you’ll book onto and attend the relevant clinic.You should complete in full the home study before you attend an assessment day or clinic. For more information, visit the FAQs How is the course delivered? and What do I need to attend?

Distance

Home study plus assessment days. The ultimate in flexibility, you can complete the course at your own pace within the course term. There is no clinic for you to attend – the only attendance requirement is the assessment days onto which you will book and perform the relevant assessments.

View Prices >

 


Part time

Home study plus a Part Time clinic (non-consecutive days of face to face tuition and assessment). Ideal for those looking for face to face contact with a tutor and other learners, but who are unable to commit to full time study. Those that enrol on a Part Time Saturday course will book onto and attend either an 11-day or 15-day clinic (depending on the course option you choose) held on Saturdays; those that enrol on a Part Time Sunday course will book onto and attend either an 11-day or 15-day clinic (depending on the course option you choose) held on Sundays; and those that enrol ona Part Time Evenings course will book onto and attend either an 11-week or 15-week clinic (depending on the course option you choose) held Monday and Tuesday evenings.

Full time

Home study plus a Full Time clinic (consecutive days of face to face tuition and assessment). For many people, this is the preferred study option. Daily face to face contact with a tutor and other learners during either an 11-day or 15-day clinic (depending on the course option you choose).

Recent Graduates

Gorka Marquez does his personal training course in london

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. Idefinitely recommend TRAINFITNESS personal training courses!

Zanna Van Dijk

It was incredible. The mix of the theory and practical was perfect. The support was amazing.

Zanna Van Dijk

We were looking for a high quality personal training course. TRAINFITNESS offered everything we needed. We now have the qualification to develop our career in fitness further including running our own boot camps across Europe and offering online workouts for our social media followers.

Zanna Van Dijk

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.
