certified personal trainer courses

Level 3 Personal Training bundle (includes level 2 gym instructor, emergency first aid and various CPD courses)



This Personal Training bundle course is made up of various courses which will allow you to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to operate as a personal trainer.  It not only includes our level 2 gym instructor course and emergency first aid,  but also various other CPD courses which will enable you to teach in other disciplines that are of interest for you.


The first part of the course would be to complete the gym instructor part, this is taught through blended learning which is a mixture of home study/e-learning for the theory aspect and face to face training covering the practical elements of the course. Once booked on to the course you will be sent out your course manual and set up for your e-learning to support you through your study. You will then attend your 5 chosen training days with your allocated tutor covering the practical elements of the course (you choose your dates from the dates listed on our gym instructor page at http://www.thefitnesseducationacademy.co.uk/courses_info.php?pid=3), followed by one assessment day for your theory and practical assessments.  Some candidates prefer to complete their theory assessments earlier which is an option available.

The course content covers:

  • Principles of anatomy, physiology and fitness
  • Professionalism and customer care for fitness instructors
  • Health and safety in the fitness environment
  • Planning and instructing gym based exercise

This part of the course is assessed through written questions, assignments, theory assessments and practical observations.  Some assessments are completed as home study, some during the attendance days and some on an allocated assessment date.  Please note that if you can not make your allocated assessment date for this course there is an option to change to a different date.


Once you have completed your gym instructor part you can then move on to the personal training part of the course, this again is taught through blended learning and you would have also chosen your 5 attendance dates, these can be found at http://www.thefitnesseducationacademy.co.uk/courses_info.php?pid=11
