Leading Health and Fitness Industry Learning

Fitness training doesn’t always translate well into the real-life experience of active personal trainers, but at TRAINFITNESS we do everything we can to create outstanding exercise professionals who can deliver a world-class service for their clients.
Making sure you’re ready for real-world personal training starts with how our courses are delivered, and there are two stand-out principles that set us apart from the competition.

Synoptic Assessments

It might sound complex, but the idea behind ‘synoptic assessment’ is actually quite simple. Rather than assessing each of your modules individually, assessments throughout your personal training course will tie together different elements from different subject areas.

As a personal trainer, you’ll be impacting different areas of people’s lives – from weight management and nutrition through to building a real understanding of physical activity and rest. The way we deliver our courses will help you understand how the different parts of what you’re learning come together for a real gym instructor working with real PT clients.


All of our personal training and fitness industry courses are built around ‘microlearning’ principles. Quite simply, you’ll retain gym instructing knowledge more effectively if it’s delivered in bite-size chunks, so, as a world-class training provider, that’s exactly what we do.

Students will also be able to see a clear path through every step of teaching and learning too, so you know what your journey will look like, from the first step right through to being a qualified personal trainer.

Learner Support

As well as the expert personal trainer that delivers your course, you’ll also be able to call on a dedicated student support team if you run into any problems or need any advice as you learn with TRAINFITNESS.

This support is there whether you’re learning to become a personal trainer in Glasgow, taking part in virtual training, or learning at your own pace with one of our distance learning packages. Just pick up the phone, drop us an email, or message us using your dedicated TRAINFITNESS learning app. And we’re on hand to make sure you’ve got everything you need to enhance your personal training course experience.

Price Match Promise

As one of the foremost authorities delivering training in the health and fitness industry, we’re confident you will not find a better value course with the same outstanding content anywhere in Scotland or the wider UK. However, if you do, just give us the details and we’ll match that price when you enrol.
