We tell all of our potential students that you can learn so many skills, including great communication skills, the ability to manage your workload, and fitness and nutrition training to provide your clients with the best service.

The one thing that you have to bring to the table is passion. If you genuinely love fitness and have the motivation to succeed, our advanced personal trainer courses will set you on the right path.

Help People Succeed

Not all clients can lose weight and stick to a fitness plan, but you can offer them the support they need to be healthier and happier. Personal training is about giving people their lives back, and it’s such a rewarding job.

The most successful trainers genuinely care about their clients and want them to succeed. With the opportunity to explore further qualifications such as life coaching and becoming a professional nutritionist, you can change someone’s life.

Enjoy an Exciting New Career

The fitness sector is bursting with opportunities for motivated individuals to find success. People are more concerned with their health now, so becoming a personal trainer means there’s a lot of job security and opportunities to progress onto other things.

Whether you want to work at a gym or become self-employed, our courses can put you on the right career path.

Keep Fit, While You Work

Let’s face it; there aren’t many people who can get fit while they’re at work. Being a personal trainer means you’ll do a lot of physical activity every day, which means you can keep in shape and get paid at the same time!

If your idea of hell is sitting at a desk all day, then you’ll love being a professional PT.

Gain Real Marketing & Business Skills

If you’d like to explore the option of starting your own gym or being a self-employed personal trainer, you will value the marketing and business unit. It’s always a good idea to gain experience with fitness industry employers, but you can reach your goals and become fully independent in time.


The Fitness Circle have 26 years’ experience in qualifying Personal Trainers and fitness professionals. Enrolling onto our CIMSPA endorsed course means you’ll be working with a serviced-focused, experienced provider that continue to keep up with the latest sports science research.
