    Having just completed my 4th Course with HFE I can say what a pleasure it has been throughout. I am now an exercise referral instructor and exercise specialist in diabetes/obesity.

  • Rating: 5 out of 5

    I found that the staff in the office and the course tutors communicated well with each other as my office tutor was able to fully support me, even though we had never met.

    I received great support throughout the home learning and during the practical weekends too. Everyone that I have spoken with or directly met from HFE have all been friendly and professional.

    Overall the apprenticeship with HFE has been great, the last 12 months I have learnt so much and without it I don't think I would be where I am now.

Personal Training Courses Glasgow

Glasgow really does have it all. It’s a vibrant city rife with football, history, architecture, culture and of course, a thriving health and fitness scene. From boutique studios to well-established gym chains and everything in-between, there’s no shortage of options in Scotland’s most populous city.

Across Scotland, and in fact the whole of the UK, we’re currently witnessing unprecedented levels of inactivity and sedentary behaviour. This has unfortunately given rise to debilitating chronic conditions and diseases like low back pain, obesity and diabetes. There is hope however, a group of individuals who are at the forefront of change and they are personal trainers. Day in, day out, they’re using their knowledge and expertise gained from a personal training qualification to make a lasting difference for those in Glasgow.

If you’re ready to join the fitness elite then your journey starts right here with personal trainer courses in Glasgow. To get you started, we have our Essentials career package and it’s perfect for those brand new to personal training. This package combines the entry-level Level 2 Gym Instructor course with the industry’s most popular qualification, Level 3 Personal Training. Upon completion, you’ll be able to call yourself a fully-fledged Glasgow personal trainer.

To get there, you’ll complete an initial home-study period of around six weeks, then everything gets put into practice with practical training at a leading Glasgow gym. This is backed up by access to cutting-edge learning materials you just won’t find anywhere else. We’re called upon some of the industry’s most experienced personal trainers, dietitians, nutritionists, physiotherapists and GPs to write and deliver our content. Throughout your studies, you’ll be also guided by a dedicated Learner Support Tutor who is on hand to answer any questions you may have. When it comes to personal trainer courses in Glasgow, you’d be hard-pressed to find a higher calibre of learning experience.

Alongside our Essentials package, we also have two advanced options designed to give you a competitive edge in the personal training market. Premium combines the essential personal training courses with kettlebells, suspension training, foam rolling and business and marketing skills. There’s also Master, your ticket to unrivalled success as a personal trainer in Glasgow. With this package, you get everything from Essentials and Premium, plus Level 3 Exercise Referral and Level 4 Obesity and Diabetes.

Once you’re qualified, we can help put you in front of 100s of employers and personal trainer job opportunities. We’ve built CV Connect, an exclusive and innovative online platform that means you’re only a few clicks away from your CV directly in front of the likes of Pure Gym, DW Fitness, JD Gyms, The Gym Group and many more.
