Career Progression Routes

Graduates of our personal training online courses have a strong foundation of fitness knowledge, skills and experience. But this is just the start!

A great way to progress is by completing one a Level 5 course for personal trainers, which allows you to work as a Level 5 trainer offering specialist services in a particular area of fitness. 

Completing a Level 5 certification will qualify you to target a niche demographic of clients, allowing you to charge more for your expertise and market yourself as a Master PT.

One of the most popular courses among those who complete our personal trainer courses online is our Level 5 Advanced Nutrition Certificate. This qualification will provide you with an advanced knowledge of nutrition, allowing you to offer nutritional advice to your clients and ultimately, ensuring that you stand out among other PTs.

OriGym’s Online Personal Training courses provide all of the necessary knowledge and skills needed to become a successful personal trainer. Once completed you’ll be qualified to create bespoke workout programmes that are tailored to help clients reach their individual goals. 

Advanced Anatomy & Physiology for Health & Exercise

As you progress through this module you will develop an elite understanding of how the human body works and responds to exercise. This is key for planning and managing fitness programmes for future clients, ensuring that each and every personal training session you plan is both effective and rewarding. 

This module will also teach you how to guide clients through the all-important, but often forgotten, stretching, mobility and flexibility exercises.

Nutritional Principles

Food is fuel, which is why exploring nutrition is a key aspect of our online personal training course. Here you will develop your knowledge of nutrition and its importance in relation to physical activity. You'll gain an advanced knowledge of a wide range of diets (including vegetarian and vegan), which will set you apart from the competition when working as a PT. 

On completion of this module, you will have the knowledge needed to cater a nutrition plan to specific client requirements, ensuring you’re ready to deal with any type of client you take on in your career. 

Personal Training Delivery

Guiding clients through their personal programming is a vital skill for personal trainers. Fortunately, that's exactly what you'll learn within this module. This part of the course will teach you a range of techniques to help you deliver an effective personal training session.

This will include ideas and information on how to set appropriate goals for clients as well as how to effectively motivate your clients during sessions.

Programming Training Sessions

Once you're working as a PT, you'll find that no client is the same. That's why we'll teach you how to programme personal training sessions to meet clients’ specific needs.

This module also covers how to set goals and create a programme based on a variety of different fitness goals. You'll also learn how to tailor programmes to clients in special populations, such as those with disabilities or injuries.

As a personal trainer, clients will look to you for support and motivation. This part of the course is designed to equip you with the tools, techniques and skills to lead by example and be seen as a trusted advisor and support figure. 

Learning the Business

Amazing Course & Career

After having a long-term passion for fitness and having built up her fitness Instagram page (@angfitpt) following to nearly 60k, Angel was getting messages constantly regarding her routines and workout posts. She decided to enrol onto OriGym's Personal Training Diploma and since has also started her Advanced Nutrition Qualification to offer her followers expert, qualified advice. 

Before I started the course, I was a lover of the gym, but unsure where I wanted to take my career. I was at university studying something I couldn’t see myself doing. That was until I found OriGym. I wanted to do the course so I could learn more about a passion of mine and eventually turn it into a career. I wanted the knowledge to turn my passion into my day to day life. I am now going to start working in a gym as a personal trainer, building my own business and hopefully continue to study around the subject too. I’m excited for what the future holds!

I have had such a wonderful experience with Origym. I started and completed my Level 2 Gym Instructor theory within lockdown and passed my practical after lockdown. The Origym tutors were super helpful with feedback on work. Also, the programme design had lots of information and I could work at my own pace!

Invaluable practical experience!

Before OriGym Ramnik was facing redundancy after a 10-year career. With an existing interest in health and fitness, Ramnik knew a role helping others to reach their goals would suit his personality and ambition. Searching online, he signed up to the Level 3 Gym Instructor and Level 4 Personal Trainer course. 

I absolutely made the right decision to choose OriGym! I’m very grateful for their continued support and their amazing tutors. They are really encouraging, helping to build your confidence to succeed. OriGym’s approach to flexibility encouraged me to study in my own time through online assessments and tutorials. Perfect for a busy parent juggling responsibilities.

My career since has gone from strength to strength. I set up my own brand whilst studying, creating a home-based studio where I train my clients. I also work as a Group Fitness Instructor, have set up my own HIIT fitness event and work with local academies encouraging children to enjoy exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Fitness Instructor & Personal Trainer

I love my new career!

Before joining OriGym, Sue worked in a gym as a Membership Sales Advisor. Many new members asked if Sue would be willing to train them, but as she wasn't qualified, she had to keep turning them down. Researching several companies, Sue enrolled on OriGym's Personal Training Diploma and has never looked back!

I researched many fitness courses but kept coming back to OriGym. I felt a good vibe from the team and the owners Luke and Steph are friendly & down to earth. I loved how involved they were in the courses! The course itself was AMAZING! The staff and teachers were fantastic, I really felt that they cared about me and my progress, going above and beyond what I had ever expected from them.

I’m now a confident Personal Trainer working for an international gym chain. The future looks so bright for me; I’m even enquiring about doing a season on a Cruise ship as part of the Royal Caribbean fitness team! OriGym has helped to make my dreams come true.
