Becoming A Personal Trainer Essex

Jayne NisbetBecoming a personal trainer is about more than working towards gaining a qualification, it’s about having a passion and dedication to the fitness industry and helping people, with you finding fulfillment in teaching other people about it.

For you to become a successful personal trainer you need to have good communication skills and a willingness to learn new skills. Having an outgoing and friendly personality and being approachable is important as people will feel more comfortable talking to you about their goals and will be more likely to ask for your advice.

For you to become a personal trainer you will also have to have a thorough understanding of how the body moves and functions. This knowledge will be based on human anatomy, kinesiology, exercise physiology, exercise programming, bio-mechanics and nutrition. As a personal trainer, you will then be able to use the information to blend what you know about this and motivation into a planned exercise program.

We are able to provide a comprehensive range of personal training courses that will help you on your way to becoming a personal trainer in Essex.

The courses that we have available are as follows:

  • Level 2 gym instructor
  • Level 3 personal trainer
  • Gym & pt combined
  • Level 2 emergency fist aid
  • Level 2 indoor studio cycling
  • Kettlebell teacher training course
  • NASM
  • Online immersion course


When it comes to our courses we take a unique immersion approach to certification which combines PT mentoring, gym based immersion training, hard-copy manuals and national hub training days.

Mentoring – This gives you the chance to interact with a successful personal trainer which is beneficial as you can learn from someone who does it everyday for a living.

National hub training days – These are monthly. The national hub training days are where you will do your exams, carry out your observed assessments and hand in your portfolio. During these training days you will be under the guidance of level 3 education and training and assessor qualified staff.

Gym based immersion training – These sessions are fast paced, hands on and based in a gym in Essex. The gym based immersion training will include all of the anatomical and physiological terminology that you will be expected to learn for your theory exams.

Our training courses are recognised all over the world, meaning that you won’t be restricted to just teaching people in Essex. Instead, you’ll be able to teach anyone anywhere that you want.
