 Starting Point

No Fitness qualifications? No Problem! This is the course for you to gain your level 3 Personal trainer certificate. You book by speaking to us over the phone (old fashioned, we know!) or book online below. Either pay in full or pay monthly (Subject to conditions). We are not a PT production line or a large chain. We are a small training provider ensuring you are given time to study, and you will only have 1 of 2 people to contact on the course, so you get consistency and good quality teaching, and we get to know you too. Personal training is a personal service, so why shouldn’t your course be too- just because it’s online?

You get what you put in, we are offering you more time & we’re not just saying it! Book the sessions via your platform, and we will guide you through the course simple.


The idea is you book a course with us & we treat you as if we were your personal trainer. If you want results (to pass this course), why don’t we start treating you like a PT client? After all, that’s what you will be doing once you are qualified.  If your client books a block of 12 sessions, you want to be using them two or four times a week to get results and working on your own to make sure you hit those goals, but it has to be part of the plan for you to achieve them to pass this course.

We need to agree when you will book a time to study, so you hand the work to us on time (the same as a client getting weighed, did they lose those 6 lbs?), this is your goal. The same as your client needs to gain muscle or lose weight! However, goals can change, so we (you & us) look at changing your goals over the 12 months. The 12 months is your endpoint. Any longer, you risk losing knowledge you have gain which only makes it harder on you.

Don’t pay for the course and expect it to happen. You don’t book a PT and expect results without planning or putting in the effort.

We agree on dates with you on the units below: 

  • Anatomy and Physiology – Theory paper multiple choice exams
  • Instructing and Planning a program – Case Study and worksheet
  • Health & Safety in the fitness environment – Worksheet
  • Principles of Exercise, Fitness & Health – Worksheet & Theory paper Multiple choice exam
  • Anatomy and Physiology – Theory paper multiple choice exams
  • Nutrition in Physical Activity – Case Study & Theory paper Multiple choice exam
  • Programming & Instructing Personal Training Sessions – Worksheet, Case Study & Practical Assessment

To help achieve this, you will have access to booked sessions with your own tutor, for 45 minutes 1-2-1 online tutor sessions & email/telephone support. These must be booked in advance via the website.

Course format

The practical element of the course is two days for level 2 & two days for level 3, and these are booked when you have completed some tasks at the start. 6 months to complete the course, or you can extend this for another 3 months (at an extra cost). The exams are currently taken at home due to covid-19. All the assessments are based in Ashford, Kent. When booking, choose which set of level 2 and level 3 dates from one row you would like to book.

We recommend you allow 1 to 2 hours of study each day towards this and any other course we offer. We prefer to guide you to complete much quicker than 6 months, so you keep the information fresh.
