I cannot speak highly enough of The Fitness Circle’s services. You learn everything you need to know to get you started for a career in personal training.
Plenty of support was given and the practical days are so much fun!
I’ll miss going to the sessions and seeing the team but the course was amazing with all the help and support needed! Recommend it to anyone!
I trained with The Fitness Circle and qualified as a personal trainer. It was professionally taught and I am now running my own gym!
The fitness circle Level 2-3 PT course offered me the flexible support I needed to make it through the course in my own speed. Not only was it the cheapest course in central London, it also pleasantly surprised me by its professional and neutering trainers throughout. I was meet by a team equipped with warm and curious approach to my learning, clearly having the success of their students in mind. I completed the course and qualified within 8 weeks, a highly recommended course for any aspiring PT. Thank you!
Absolutely amazing, couldn’t recommend The Fitness Circle enough. They have the perfect balance of letting you get on with it in your own pace but at the same time motivating you along the way and offering you as much help as possible. Debs and Alex were the nicest people to get along with and I really felt like they cared about how well I did which is very nice as you don’t always get that with all these other company’s. I finished my diploma within the time I wanted and they made it a fun experience!
