In terms of entry requirements, no prior fitness qualification is required before starting one of our combined gym instructor and personal trainer courses.

Relevant personal experience of the subject – for example, prior participation in gym sessions – will be helpful.

Payment Options

Both our Women’s Health & Exercise course packages represent the very best value and are made even more affordable by the range of flexible funding options we offer to help you spread the cost:

Prompt Payment: Straight up and simple. Pay up front, in full and receive a prompt payment discount.

Interest Free Payment Plans: You can apply for finance and if approved you’ll pay the regular price via a payment plan. These plans may include interest free payment plans (0%) and zero credit charges on terms of two months to four years with no deposit in some instances. Learn more about our finance options.

ELCAS: We’re also an approved training provider for the Enhanced Learning Credits Administrative Service (ELCAS), so if you’re a current or former member of the armed services (within five years of leaving the service), you can apply for Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) funding for any of our level 3 diploma personal training courses.
