These packages also come with exclusive extras such as PT Business Mastery from one of the world's most renowned personal trainers, Matt Roberts, and Supplements. Simplified from Awesome Supplement's founder Ben Coomber.
Aside from qualifications, it would be beneficial if you have experience of using gym-based equipment. For more information about what it takes to become a personal trainer, contact our Careers team or read our extensive career guide.

HFE students, as standard, get access to a range of learner resources and support systems that can be utilised throughout their studies and beyond.
It all starts with your personalised support tutor who is only ever a phone call or email away. As part of your personal training studies, you'll also receive bespoke print and digital manuals, via the HFE app.
As our courses utilise the blended learning, the online portal is where you'll complete the majority of your home study learning. Within LES, the Learner Engagement System, you'll find an extensive range of mock tests and quizzes, and online video lectures.
There is no definitive answer as each learner will approach their studies at a different pace. What's important to note is that the journey to become more is one that can not be rushed.
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
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.
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've created CV Connect, a game-changing way to connect graduates with employers. As soon as an HFE student completes their course, they'll instantly unlock the ability to upload their CV, search for employers in their area and apply direct. There are no middle-men and no recruit,ent agencies, just real opportunities for qualified fitness professionals.
"HFE is the ultimate fitness training provider, without a doubt their personal training courses are the best in the industry."
"The course has really helped me to better understand yoga so that I can improve my performance and remain World No. 1"
"HFE have produced some of the best materials I have seen in education."
"HFE is the most professional and cutting edge fitness provider I have ever seen."
HFE are a great training company, from my experience of studying Level 3 Yoga and Level 3 Pilates with them. Their tutors, in this case, Yvette, Lindsay and Charlotte are inspirational, caring and responsive, giving a level of dedication and inspiration that, I hope, carries through to my own teaching practice.
Excellent course, would definitely recommend. Next time I want to do a course, I'd choose HFE
What a course! Just received notification that I passed the A&P exam which is basically the end of a 6-month journey for me...
Really interesting course with lots of study material, that you can work through at your own pace. Friendly support team at the end of the phone, who are amazingly supportive and knowledgeable on all the study subjects.
