A Day in the Life of a PT

Becoming a PT is an interesting and varied role where you take on your own clients and help them increase their fitness levels. You will devise tailored fitness training programmes that will include a mix of cardio, and strength and conditioning exercises that will burn fat, slim, tone and improve strength and stamina. The beauty of the role is that these tasks can take place in the gym of your choice, at the park or at your client’s home, the choice is yours. So, whether you are running in the park or pumping iron in the gym, no two days are the same!

Each client will have a different set of requirements and you will see them for regular training sessions which could be weekly, monthly or daily, depending on their needs and personal goals. You will find yourself working with people from all walks of life, of different ages and ability from beginner to pro.

Nationally Recogised Training Courses

The diploma is a nationally accepted qualification. It is validated by Focus Awards, recognised by Ofqual, CIMSPA, the Association of Independent Trainers and Thinktree Hub, as well as the international professional organisation for the health and fitness industry. Therefore, you can get a job at any gym in the country or set up in your own business with total confidence.

After completing the qualification, you are also guaranteed professional insurance. This means that the day you finish, you can start practising.
