The Fitness Circle was recommended to me by my friend some time back and from the minute I spoke with Alex and subsequently Deb, my experience has been amazing. I adore the whole team, who have helped me to build my business and my brand as a result of all their hard work and support. I suffered three bereavements over the course of my level 2 and 3 stages and the team were so helpful and considerate of my situation. I am so confident in what I now do and cannot wait to see what the future holds for me in the personal training space. I appreciate you guys ever so much. Thank you for making my experience so easy!

Finished with my Level 3 Diploma with the Fitness Circle. Alex and Debra are really nice and welcoming. They helped me with everything and always wanted to make sure I was OK and understood everything I had to do in the tasks. They always replied to me very fast and clear. The practical exams were more than easy because of the way the trainers were explaining everything we had to do. It was all explained in a very calm and clear way. Really recommending The Fitness Circle if you want to start your journey in the fitness industry.

Fitness Circle has been a great choice to get my Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications. They offer the flexibility to work in your own phase with the help of both online and printed materials. You even have the option to complete your practical assessment online, however for a great experience and for the possibility to meet the team I would highly recommend to attend at the practical assessments. I have completed both courses next to a full time job within 5 months. Enjoyed every part of it! Thank you very much for the whole team for this great experience.

I’ve learned so much, not only about getting in shape, but also about how the different muscles connect and work. I feel confident I have the tools to continue exercising on my own and the knowledge I gained from Personal Trainer Courses London - The Fitness Circle will benefit both me and my family for the rest of our lives.
