Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training

Gaining your Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification is the natural next step in your fitness career. As a Personal Trainer you have a massive influence on everyone you come in to contact with, by teaching or instructing and, more importantly, as a role model. You will already be seen as an authority purely from your previous learning by gaining our Gym Instructor qualification. However, once you have qualified as a Personal Trainer your advanced knowledge and skills will mean you can have a massive impact on people’s lives.

You will have heard and read about the Obesity epidemic and we can guarantee that you will know someone who is overweight/obese. People are becoming fatter due to poor diets and lack of exercise. As a Personal Trainer you will be ideally positioned to help battle these issues by guiding people through their daily nutritional needs and getting them in to an effective fitness regime. Your role will have changed from Gym Instructor to coach, mentor and friend.

The world really is your oyster as with a Personal Trainer qualification. You may want to work on your own, visiting clients in their homes or working with them outdoors. You might prefer to work for one of the large gym chains or a small independent fitness studio like Train Together. With a little experience you could even set up your own studio and employ other Personal Trainers!

At Train Together we can help you, whatever route you choose. Our tutors and assessors are vastly experienced. They have worked in small and large gyms, as solo Personal Trainers, Boot Camp owners and now as Fitness Studio owners. Our courses give you real advice and guidance from people that have “been there and done it”.

What Our Customers Say

“When I first decided to become a personal trainer, I thought my options were very limited – the closest training facility was a 2 hour drive away and the costs were higher than I anticipated. I’d settled on waiting a while. By chance, I spotted an advertisement for Train Together’s Level 2 (Gym Instructor) & Level 3 (Personal Trainer) courses. I met with Neil, asked a few questions and signed up right away. Neil clearly cares about the success of his students – his teaching style and his own knowledge are excellent. Through a mix of home based, classroom based and gym based practical learning – with the support of the Train Together team, I was able to pass both courses with flying colours. I even surprised myself. If you want to become a Gym Instructor or Personal Trainer, chat with Train Together, you will be given all the knowledge and support you need – I highly recommend them.”

– Karl (Personal Trainer), September 2015.

Am I right for this course?

If you have passed a Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing – Gym based, or an equivalent, then the Personal Trainer qualification is the logical next step if you wish to pursue a career in the fitness industry. You will need to be a motivated and motivating individual because you will be working with people who really need your help.
