We actually care how you progress. 


Since our establishment 2010 we've continuously evolved to find the best way to help students progress with their individual ambitions during, and more importantly AFTER our courses. Back then, we recognized that upon graduation as a personal trainer, students needed further ongoing “mainstream gym training” before being really employable and this was the gap we aimed to bridge. Bridge we did, and now we're he industries main recruiter in partnership with the largest employers, who link directly to our students today. 


However, seeking employment is still only one element of the many things you can do with your qualifications with us, so no matter what your ambitions are whether it's employment, online coaching, teaching classes, working with teams, corporate fitness, or opening your own facility we're going to be able to help you because we care how you progress. We also have all the contacts you need for anything you wish to do. Equipment supplier discounts, platforms for online coaching, marketing, employers tips, insurance companies and much more. We're super proud of our reputation built up over the years, and that's down to how we take care of our students & graduates beyond just the course. So hopefully when you qualify we can do the same for you. 

Truth is, it's much easier for us to just say our content is the best, our platform is the best, our team is the best and blah blah blah..... However when it comes down to it, we actually CARE HOW YOU DO, and our full team will always go that extra mile to help you succeed.
