In this module, you will learn how to lay the foundations for your business, including how to write a business plan, design a logo and get insurance. 

Online And Social Media Presence For Personal Trainers

This module will give you the tools to start marketing your PT business, including creating a website and using social media to promote your business and gain clients. 

The Fundamentals Of Being A Successful Personal Trainer

Here you will learn more about how to be a successful personal trainer on a more holistic level, such as the key skills required for the role and how to build rapport with your clients. 

Delivering Personal Training Primarily Online Or In The Home

This section of the course focuses on running an online personal training business, teaching you how to use essential software and how to lead a session online. 

A Salaried Position At A Gym Or Studio

Business CPD Careers

After completing the Business, Sales and Marketing for Personal Trainers CPD Course, you will have the tools to start and run your own fitness business.

However, you will need to have a Level 4 Personal Trainer qualification in order to work as a PT, so this is an essential course to take alongside this CPD.

Following this course, you will also be able to access OriGym's vast array of business & marketing resources specifically designed for those looking to become self-employed! 

If you're already qualified, you can further advance your career with a Level 5 Personal Training certificate, where you can deepen your existing theoretical knowledge and develop new practical skills to offer better services to your clients. 

Every OriGym CPD course including the Personal Training Business qualification, is recognised by PD Approval and approved by REPs Ireland!

Heather Hacking

Founder of Heather Hacking PT

Fantastically Structured & Well Organised

As a mother of three children after spending the past nine years building her career as a solicitor, Heather made the decision to follow a life-long passion for health, wellness and fitness, and pursue a career as a personal trainer.

Studying part-time with OriGym to fit around family and work, I achieved my Level 3 Gym Instructor and Level 4 Personal Training qualifications. I found OriGym’s courses to be fantastically structured and well organised, and my tutor Andy Tsang was brilliant - he taught me so much!

After graduating I started my fitness business with the sole purpose of empowering women, both physically and mentally. My business has now been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Breakthrough Personal Trainer’ category at Northern Ireland’s Health & Fitness Awards 2019 - I am so thrilled! I am very grateful to OriGym for giving me such a great foundation to launch my business from.

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!
