Our company’s mission is to ensure our students receive the best professional service available in the industry. This is why we have post-course support to ensure over 92% of our students are now working as fitness professionals!

We offer a range of health and fitness qualifications of varying levels and disciplines from personal training, sports massage and nutrition to CPD courses specialising in different styles of training. We offer all of the foundational courses you’ll need to become a fitness professional!

The success rate of our students in the fitness industry speaks for itself with over 92% of our student base pursuing fitness careers!

Our student testimonials speak for themselves too - on Trustpilot, we have a 4.9 rating from over 2,000 satisfied students.

One of the reasons for this is we offer full online study, allowing you to complete our courses at your own pace. Should you require them, you’ll also have unlimited assessment resits at no extra charge!

We have absolutely no hidden fees - the price you’re quoted is the price you’ll pay! We don’t charge for things some of our competitors do such as booking exams, certifications fees, and resits.

We believe in providing quality training for our students while making the courses affordable, enabling accessibility for everybody in the fitness sector.

We’re dedicated to training the next generation of fitness professionals and by keeping our costs as low as possible, we’re able to achieve just that.

By providing you with an “all-in” price, what you see on our course pages is what you’ll pay for that course! We don’t charge extra for any administration, examination, or certification costs.

Finally, our competitive course prices are influenced by partnerships we have with gyms and assessment centres, meaning we don’t need to charge extra for overheads like venue hire.

Absolutely! Our mission is to make our courses as affordable and accommodating as possible, regardless of your circumstances.

You’re able to build a flexible payment plan that best suits your financial situation, and coupled with our 0% interest rate, you don’t need to worry about money while you’re studying.
