Sports has always been a huge part of Christopher’s life. As an active gym goer, he already had some first-hand knowledge of personal training and the importance of health and fitness, so when the opportunity came up to do a course and become a qualified personal trainer himself, Chris jumped at the chance!
Chris said: “I wasn’t in full-time work, I was just doing odd jobs here and there but hadn’t found anything I was passionate about or any work that I enjoyed, so when I came across the course I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to get started on a new career that I actually had an interest in.”
Chris decided to use his time wisely and opted to study using our fast-track personal trainer course. Speaking about his experience on the course, Chris said: “To be honest, I loved everything about it! From start to finish it was fantastic, my tutor was great and made sure we all had the important information. My favourite part of the course however was the anatomy and nutrition units as I loved the science behind it, I found it very interesting!” He continues “fitting the course around my personal life was really easy too as we were only needed in the classroom for 2 days a week over the 5-weeks of the course, and the online learning platform is really easy to use, so you can do a lot of your learning in your own time at home. I was initially a little anxious about having to learn so much in such a short period of time, but with the tutors and the online learning platform it turns out there was nothing to worry about!”
After graduating the course, Chris made full use of the career support all of our students receive and updated his CV with their help, which ended up getting him a job straight away in his new industry! We checked in with him to see how he’s been getting on. Chris said: “I’m working at Oakley Fitness, I am primarily a receptionist as I want to gain some experience and build my brand before I become a personal trainer, but I also run classes, do gym inductions and help out elsewhere in the gym. I have a few CPD courses lined up with The Training Room to allow me to run more classes. It’s a great atmosphere at the gym I love working there! It’s like a little family!”
We wish Chris the best of luck in his new career in health and fitness, and we’re glad he finally found work in an industry he is really passionate about.
If you feel the same as Chris and want to make the leap into a new adventure, let us help you!
Really friendly, reassuring and helping

A small issue with stored details was resolved quickly and effectively by both the tutor and customer services via phone and email.
Everyone was very helpful and it was all easy to understand with no confusing words or phrases. I would definitely recommend The Training Room.
I’ve just literally started my journey as a PT and so far so good, Scott the gentlemen who was setting me up in the beginning did an amazing job! And just want to say to the team thanks for having such great services like the course I chose for people wanting more out of life and a change of career made easier.
I didn't feel pressure to sign up there and then, very helpful and informative
very helpful staff that are kind and patient enough to help you through whatever concerns you might be having.
My sales rep was incredibly helpful and polite, and they answered any questions I had very clearly. Additionally, the cost of the course seemed fair for the amount of content provided
So far very happy
I gave 5 stars as there is the right amount of contact without being pressured. The actual course is well set out and interesting in the different ways used to deliver the information.
Everything was very clear and well explained every time I spoke to anyone. They knew exactly what they were speaking about making the experience much more enjoyable and much simpler than the other companies I was considering using for my Personal Training course.
Very helpful and thorough
I would definitely reccomend
Everyone I have spoken to has been very helpful and have managed to answer all my questions and I find the learning platform really easy to use
Chris, was fantastic from start to finish. No hard sell just informative, helpful and very knowledgeable. The process was quick and easy. Cannot wait to start the course
I have just gone through the process of enrolling on a level 3 PT, with a level 4 nutrition course to follow. Having previous fitness qualifications and training experiences, I have been bowled over by the knowledge, support and professionalism that the training room have provided through my enquiry. Carl has been fantastic and Charlotte just as much in getting me setup. I can’t wait to get started!! You have made this such an easy decision in choosing the Training Room to be my PT training provider. Thank you
They are very thorough and helpful, positive and very nice people over the phone also, helped with any questions i had and lastly never rushed through calls letting me feel like i don’t need to rush into something i don’t know about as they never moved forward with the conversation without making sure i was happy first
I would recommend them. They are very supportive and very professional. Very excited to start my course, as I know I'm in good hands..
Course is easy to follow and interesting so far
Everything from the customer service and the amount of information you get told about the course was excellent. Highly recommend, very good resources available and easy to follow.
