A perfect CPD opportunity for personal trainers, Pilates instructors and yoga teachers looking to widen their client base. Discover the skills to treat injuries, promote recovery and improve performance.
The Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage is an essential qualification for those wanting to treat injuries, aid rehabilitation and improve form and function. The role of a sports massage therapist is as much about preventing common injuries as it is treating them. Because of this, sports massage therapists have to be incredibly flexible and adaptive in their approach – every client will be different and therefore will need to be treated with equal care.
Becoming a qualified sports massage therapist will enable you to become self-employed and develop your own clinic or practice, or work within an existing establishment. This course also enables current fitness professionals such as personal trainers, yoga teachers and Pilates instructors to add an additional element to their offering. In doing so, this makes a professional more marketable and potentially opens up a whole new client base.
Sports massage isn’t solely reserved for elite athletes and sportspeople either, techniques can be adapted for everyone from occasional gym goers to those starting an exercise programme for the very first time.

Great training provider. Fab tutors, great support.
Good feedback from the course tutor for the two written tasks enabled me to make a couple of adjustments and resend. Would definitely recommend to others in the industry looking to work with older adults.
I've completed my level 2 gym and level 3 personal trainer courses with HFE and both courses were excellent. The level of instruction both from my tutor and on the weekends was of the highest standard.
I enjoyed my time learning with HFE, I have just completed my level 3 PT and found it to be a great experience. Telephone support was always on hand whenever I had any questions, and when it came to my 3 weekend practical and examinations I found it laid back and not like normal exam conditions.
