Get Qualified

We’ve talked before about our talented workforce, and our newly designed training programme is a testament to that. Developed on request by our partners and colleagues, we believe the best people to inspire new fitness professionals are those who have ‘been there, done it and bought the t-shirt’.

That’s why all our tutors still work in our industry and can often be seen delivering in our leisure centres. All our courses are accredited by industry recognised Awarding Organisations and, where relevant, are endorsed by REPs and CIMSPA.

We have developed high-quality learning programmes for every level, plus additional learning resources for each course. Our courses are designed to be flexible to your individual needs. This means if you’re new to the industry you can gain all your qualifications, but if you're a seasoned fitness professional you can ‘bolt on’ additional units to enhance your skills and learning portfolio.
