As online learning is self-paced, students can take as little or a long as they wish to complete the programme. All online gym instructor students are supported by personal tutors, who are themselves expert fitness instructors and gym instructors, available to reach by phone or email.

Part Time

Part-time provides a blended learning experience, combining in-person tuition with online study. This is one of the most popular options for many students as it perfectly balances learning from home and attending regular practical workshops.

These workshops are entirely practically focused, running from all of our locations and restricted to small groups, ensuring you get the absolute maximum out of each day spent training. Combined with the opportunity to then study and revise online at your own pace, many students choose this option to fit their studies around their existing work, family and life commitments.

Full Time

The full-time Diploma in Personal Training is 20 days of intensive study where you will learn in a classroom setting from 9am-5:00pm, Monday to Friday. We also have a weekend option delivered over 10 weekends, and an option that includes both weekdays and weekends.

Only our most experienced tutors teach our full-time courses and you will study in groups no more than 12 to maximise your learning experience. Keeping the full-time course engaging and practically based, you will be on the gym floor everyday as well as learning in our designated classroom area.
