    HFE Pilates Course

    I found HFE to be a fantastic provider for this course. Their support during the course was outstanding. Will be using them again for further courses.

  • Rating: 5 out of 5

    Fantastic

    I have done a lot of courses and I cannot recommend this training provider highly enough. My Tutor was available at all times and so supportive.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need any prior qualifications?

    In order to enrol on the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training, you first need to hold a recognised Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification.

    Don't worry if you don't have one at the moment because we offer great packages that combine both Level 2 and Level 3. Aside from qualifications, it would be beneficial if you have experience of using gym-based equipment.

    Above all else, you'll need a passion for fitness and a desire to help others.

  • What are my payment options?

    We aim to make things as easy as possible and you can book your place on course for as little as £100. If you choose to pay up front in full then you're eligible for a 5% discount on the total course price. Alternatively, you could pay a small deposit and settle up 14 days before you attend your first training weekend.

    For those looking to spread the cost, our 6-month plan lets you pay in bite-sized instalments.

  • Are these recognised personal trainer courses?

    Absolutely. All of our personal trainer courses are certificated by YMCA Awards, the industry's original awarding body. It's also fully accredited by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs). Upon joining the Register, you'll be able to unlock a range of benefits including public liability insurance, legal advice, discounts and exclusive resources.

  • What skills do I need to become a personal trainer?

    To become a successful personal trainer you will already possess a burning passion for the fitness industry and the drive to help people achieve their goals.

    Other must-have traits include having and demonstrating exemplary communication skills, being incredibly organised, energetic, enthusiastic, and highly adaptable.

    If you already have these skills then the next stage is enrolling onto a course and getting qualified.

  • How long will it take to get qualified?

    This depends on the specific course or package you're enrolled on to. For the Level 2 Gym Instructor Certificate, students usually take three months and this includes a period of home study and two sets of practical weekends. Some may take longer but our support systems are in place to ensure everyone is given the opportunity to qualify first time.

    For Level 3 Personal Training, most learners take between four and five months. Like gym, this includes a period of home study and for this specific course, there are four practical weekends to attend. As soon as your exams and assessments are complete, you'll be free to seek employment as a personal trainer.

  • Do you offer guaranteed personal trainer interviews or jobs?

    The simple answer is no. Time and time again we've heard of other training providers guaranteeing interviews and jobs that simply turn out to be self-employed positions. These trainers can end up struggling to make ends meet because they're paying a large weekly or monthly rent to work in a club before they've even secured their first client.

    Instead, we take a transparent approach, offering extensive career and employment advice which allows our graduates to make their own informed decisions about where they want to work.

Personal Training with HFE

Sedentary behaviour and levels of inactivity have been rising at an unprecedented rate in recent years and the problem still exists to this day. At the same time, the World Health Organisation (WHO) have consistently warned of the epidemic levels of chronic conditions such as obesity and diabetes. On face value, the future may look bleak but more and more people are taking an interest in their health and seeking ways to further incorporate exercise into their lives.

To cater for this increasing shift in attitudes towards exercise, fitness organisations and centres such as gyms, health clubs and leisure centres are moving away from the traditional fitness instructor model. In their place are personal trainers using their expert knowledge and skills to help their members achieve their goals.

While the roles of a gym instructor and personal trainer are closely linked, there are some key differences. To truly succeed in the profession, the role demands a great understanding of anatomy and physiology, and exercise programming and techniques. This enhanced knowledge and increased range of skills afford personal trainers an immense amount of freedom.

While opportunities to work in traditional establishments such as gym and health clubs are in abundance, PTs are by no means bound to the gym floor. Many have found success creating online brands centred around body composition. Others run successful outdoor bootcamps which are filled to capacity week after week. There are even opportunities for personal trainers on cruise ships or work closely with corporate clients to improve the health and fitness of employees.

For those new to the fitness industry, the Level 2 Gym Instructor certificate is the essential place to start. This can be combined with the Level 3 Personal Trainer Certificate to form the Personal Trainer Diploma. These courses can be completed one after the other, meaning you can get qualified and begin your search for employment without any delays.

If you’re already qualified as a gym instructor, then there a range of personal trainer courses and comprehensive packages available to help you advance to the next level of your fitness career. Venues are available nationwide including London, Manchester, Nottingham and Cardiff.
