I was 31 years old and had been working as an accountant for 14 years I hated my job. I wanted to try something new my girlfriend suggested that I try the fitness industry I was competing in MMA competitions and I loved the fitness element of it but I was a little aprehensive of swapping careers as my appearance is not what you would call athletic and I was worried that the industry was only for 21 year olds with tans and huge biceps. My girlfriend reassured me that not everyone in the gym wants to be taught by a huge Arnie clone! So I had a look online at the various course providers and there were many different ways to qualify after a bit of research I found out that a REPS recognised course was the way to go.
I decided to pick Innervate as they offered a course that was a mixture of distance (online) learning and class based face to face classes. It kept the price low as some courses can cost upwards of £2000 but it also allowed me to get some hands-on experience at the gym with a qualified instructor. Our Instructors showed us the correct way to induct a complete beginner in the gym in a way that was informative but not patronising. We also learned some great techniques that I still use on my clients today. I also made some good friends on that level 2 course and we decided to stay on study at Innervate for the level 3 together. Level 3 was a little harder than Level 2 with much more in depth anatomy and nutrition but this made it all the more rewarding when I had passed.
Since qualifying for my CYQ Level 2 Gym instructor and CYQ Level 3 Personal Trainer I am now employed full time at a local health club with my own personal training clients. I no longer fear Monday mornings even though I get up at five for the early spin class! and I genuinely think that I now have the best job in the world. There is no better feeling than helping someone get over an injury through exercise rehab or knowing that you have improved someones self confidence. I am now looking to increase my knowledge further by studying GP referral as you can never stop learning in this industry.
I was really pleased with the service I received from Innervate Training on my recent GP Exercise Referral Course. The materials for the course arrived within a day of booking on, and I was contacted promptly by one of the tutors to begin the self-learning aspect. The actual course was very informative with plenty of time for questions, and the office were on hand afterwards for any queries about the coursework. All in all, a very well put together course and a great service from Innervate. Thanks!
I did my Level 3 Personal Trainer Award with Innervate and was very pleased with the help and support I received. The practical workshops were very informative and the content was delivered in an easy to follow format. My online course tutor was great at answering any queries I had quickly. I recommend this distance learning course.

The course tutors and telephone support were absolutely excellent all through the course until completion. I now feel confident with delivering effective personal training sessions and giving full nutritional advice and support.
Obtaining Level 3 in Personal Training with Innervate has enabled me to get work straightaway and do something I love. Im already working in a private studio training clients and getting huge results for them. Thank you for everything!
When I decided to do my Level Two Exercise to Music Instructor Course by distance learning, it was very important to me to find a course provider that was not only professional but also attentive. I found this with Innervate Training from my first contact.
Apart from providing high levels of customer service their tutorial support and teaching was outstanding and exceptional. I was completely impressed with the way the course was organised and with the superb level of tutorial support I received. The course materials were extremely informative and arranged into manageable sections that could be learned on a weekly basis. The weekend training session were further impressive, equipping me with the skills, abilities and confidence required to teach a class. As a complete novice to the fitness world this was highly valuable to me as it empowered me with the tools I needed to start up my own classes.
My experience as a student of Innervate Training has been truly rewarding and one that I value at the highest level.
