As a personal trainer you will enjoy a career that is both financially and emotionally rewarding, one that gives you the independence of being your own boss and the flexibility to build your career around your life.
Training as a Personal Trainer
YMCAfit offer an intensive course for students who wish to ‘fast track’ their personal training career. Alternatively, for students who may have other commitments, we offer a modular route which allows you to complete the component modules at a time to suit you.
Both options will take into account your preferred learning style and you will be taught at a pace you find comfortable. Our Advanced Diploma in Personal Training will make you highly employable around the UK and internationally. To find more about the Advanced Diploma in Personal Training, click here.
