“I did the Level 2 & 3 personal training course at Train Fitness and absolutely loved the whole experience! All the tutors and staff were great, especially Danielle- our course leader- who was very kind, considerate and helpful and made the course so much fun!”

Leading Learning Resources and Principles

Sometimes, what you learn on personal training and gym instructor courses can feel disconnected from what actually happens when you’re face-to-face with PT clients. At TRAINFITNESS, our courses are carefully designed to meet the requirements of a personal trainer in a real-world fitness environment. As a graduate, you’ll be able to support your personal training clients with a huge range of issues, including their physical activity and exercise programs, through to weight management skills and training around common medical conditions.

Microlearning principles

That real-world approach begins with how our personal trainer courses are delivered. We use ‘microlearning’ principles – meaning information and training is delivered in bitesize chunks, allowing you to better comprehend and retain what you learn. Each diploma in personal training has very clear learning paths too so you’ll be able to see what each session has in store and how the principles will all work together.

Synoptic assessments

We also use ‘synoptic assessment’ strategies on our personal trainer courses in Manchester. This might sound complicated – but it’s actually a simple and effective way of combining assessments over different modules and subjects. By delivering our fitness industry courses in this way, you’ll find that knowledge from different lessons and modules all naturally begins to make sense together – essential practice when you work in the world of health and fitness.

Personal Trainer Courses with World-class Support

Whether you attend one of our courses in Manchester or plan to learn online, you’ll have access to the same level of industry-leading support, both from our course advisors and dedicated training provider tutors in our Learner Support team.

Throughout your training, you’ll be able to connect with our support team on the phone, by email, or through our help desk. When you do, you can expect a friendly, helpful and supportive service whether you have study questions about practical assessments or specific modules on any of our fitness courses, or need help with anything administration-related.

Personal Training Course Price Match Promise

When you learn at our Manchester training centre, we’re certain we deliver the best value, highest quality fitness industry training, full stop. We don’t think you’ll find a better price for the same level of personal training course with the same services anywhere else, but if you do, we’ll match that price when you enrol on your fitness instructor training with us.

The TRAINFITNESS Career Concierge™

When your course is complete and you’re ready to step up and gain employment as a personal trainer, the TRAINFITNESS team will still be beside you.

Our innovative Career Concierge™ support means nothing will be left to chance as your launch your fitness career.
